On Saturday I had a bunch of issues with the white FFH. A number of times while I was driving the MFT screen went black and rebooted. Then while sitting at a red light the entire dash flashed, the two dash screens went black, the doors unlocked and outside lights flashed and after about 2 seconds when things started powering back on the dash said "Stop Safely Now". I turned off the car and restarted it immediately and was able to continue driving while only causing a minor delay for traffic behind me. I haven't driven the car since then. We're going to Canada later this week and were planning to take the FFH, but now I'm thinking that perhaps we should take the Prius...

 

There are no additional codes stored in ET Mode other than the two relating to the block heater issue. Torque Pro doesn't show any stored codes either. A Vehicle Health Report says that everything is green and ok.

 

Has anyone else had something similar happen?

Did you have anything connected to the OBD port at the time?   I currently have a Davis CarChip and a Scangauge II connected to mine and the only anomoly I have had is the inability to run a VHR with anything connected.  That was also true for my 2010 Fusion Hybrid.  I wonder if the extra traffic on the buss can cause intermittent problems.

Right after I bought my FFH I had some spurious alerts and that 'Stop safely" message. 

The Dealer could not find any codes or trouble and Ford Engineering had them do a Hard Reset.

Those alerts never returned. 

A 100% SOC Hard Reset might help with the mpg's too, who knows.

 

Your car sits a lot and I'm wondering if the LVB had anything to do with it.

The generic ELM 327 scanner I used in the past, has caused the displays to go blank and reboot.  It has also caused blindspot and cross traffic system faults, and disabled traction control.  It sometimes seems to interfere with CAN Bus communications.  I replaced it with a OBDLink MX scanner and have had no further issues. 

 

Torque Pro does not properly read DTCs.  FORScan, does a much more thorough job of finding DTCs.

Tracking MPGe--not MPG.

Do you still have the scan gauge hooked up? maybe it came loose a bit and caused it.
