Where do you guys find these TSB's listed, is there a site that we can go to to see these listed somewhere and print them out?

There are two TSBs connected to the battery saver message.

 

13-4-13  Reprogram the FCDIM and clear codes

13-5-1    Reprogram the direct current converter module

Do these show up in Etis for anyone? My VIN doesn't show anything.

Went in today and had Ford TSB 13-05-01, which I called Service Pack 1 in honor of Microsoft, loaded.  Less than one half hour total time in dealership.  I had called the day before to tell them to get ready for my arrival.  After sitting an hour batter voltage read 12.47 which is higher than I recall it ever being.  Time will tell and I hope this works.

Yep, I'm on my second battery and was getting the message again. I took mine in the AM to get the TSB update. Coffee and donuts....

Thank you for this.  My BS message has been appearing again ever day.  Now I can make an appointment to take care of this TSB, get my leather shifter and an oil change all at the same time.  I also got a letter last week from Ford saying a V3.5 update is available for MFT.  Is this different than 3.5.1?

So is this TSB for all Fusions? I have had no issues with my battery, but if it needs fixing, I'd like it fixed.

I took my car into the dealer yesterday to have the TSB 13-05-1 update done since I had been getting the BS message on a daily basis. When I got the car back I noticed that I no longer had my EV+ settings that I had before this update has anyone else seeen this that had the TSB 13-05-1 update done. Also my clock was off this morning by about 15 minutes and had to go in and reset my clock back to the correct time. It dosen't look like they did any lifetime resets or anything that could of or should of wiped out my EV+ settings or done anything to the clock.

So does this mean I will be receiving some kind of notice? I'm not sure what a TSB means. Is it for all hybrids or all hybrids produced before a certain date? I have had no battery issue, but I can't say I sit in the car in accessory mode for extended periods.

TSB = Technical Service Bulletin. It's for all hybrids and yes you should expect a letter. You didn't say how long you've had you car, but mine was built 11/17 and I'm on my second 12v battery and I continued to get the message.....so I had the dealer do the repair.

When you get an update some of your settings are lost and have to be re-entered. The EV+ has to learn all over again.

If you have an oil life function that may need to be set.

My Z has the same symptoms.  I have gotten the BS warning, the stupid auto up/down windows need to be re-trained almost on a daily basis, and now my audio won't come on and the entire car shuts down after just a minute on ACC power.  I have an appointment at my local Ford dealer on the 23rd to have the TSB completed.  Keeping my fingers crossed it fixes the problems.  ;)

I had the TSB 13-05-1 done on 7 May. Car seemed ok until 20 May until it started again with the Battery Saver message and losing window settings, etc. Car on its second battery. When TSB was done dealer said that battery tested ok. Called Ford District Rep and told her, voice mail, that her "Fix" did not work.

I have not had the TSB done yet, and have not had the BS message in a couple weeks, guessing due to the warmer weather. However today I had shown a friend how the global up/down windows work and sure enough after my drive home I had the BS message again when I shut the car off!
I only put the windows down and then up one time, apparently this is an option the little battery does not hold enough charge to use.

Has anyone successfully solved "Battery Saver System Off" issue by having  new12 V Battery installed and/or having  TSB 13-05-1 done,  beginning to get this message again now after two months ago Dealer charging battery for me....

This issue is ridiculous since the car is supposed to charge the battery, not the owner or the dealer.  I had the battery replaced in January and the TSB 13-5-1 done and still have the problem.   Dealer is contacting Ford again as there is nothing he knows to do, sadly.  So, since my battery voltage was 11.9 and a voltage below 12.15 causes battery saver to kick in, I put mine on the lawnmower's charger over night to see if it will take and hold a charge.  Now reads 12.74.  In theory they checked the battery when TSB was done but who really knows.  I asked the service manager to check with Ford about a reprogram of the battery saver software to allow for a lower charge point on the battery since they can not fix the true battery issue.  Would really like correctly functional windows and accessories working in accessory mode.
