My new 2016's Speedometer quit working with 614 miles on it

Customer Question

My new 2016's Speedometer quit working with 614 miles on it lol...The abs lit up and anti skid in orange. There is a message that says Hill Start Assist is not available...what ever that means and it does not keep track of the miles per gallon and other things...What went wrong?

Hi. I work at the dealer and have not seen this issue on the new Escapes. But for all that stuff to quit working it seems to me something has failed with the abs. Possibly a sensor was loose, or is damaged. These vehicles are too new to see any common concerns. Even a mouse chewing on a wire can cause a problem like that. I assume you should have plenty of warranty left, and plan on bringing it to the dealer?
