Is there a problem with the battery in the Lincoln Aviator?

Yes, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has received several consumer complaints that describe how they get a Stop Safely Now message just before the car loses power and stops.

What Problems are Lincoln Aviator Owners Experiencing?

The similarity of these complaints is that the Aviator gives the driver the Stop Safely Now message and then slows down and stops. These drivers are going nowhere in a hurry!

Here are some of the complaints that have been lodged with NHTSA.

An owner from Pennsylvania States:

“On 5 separate occasions, my car has given me a warning saying Stop Safely Now. When I begin to slow down, the car loses all power and I have to coast to a stop somewhere. The first time the car started back up and I was able to drive it again. The following 4 times it had to be towed. Each time I was stranded on the side of the road – once literally on the road because I was unable to get onto the berm because of high snowdrifts and the car just stopped, which was a huge safety issue.

“Each time this has happened it has taken approximately 3 hours for a Lincoln-approved tow truck to come and get the vehicle leaving me stranded in the freezing cold with multiple children and no heat in my vehicle. My speed has varied each time this has happened. One time I was in park, another time I was doing 60+MPH, and the others were in-between these speeds. I have multiple videos of what happens and have provided them to Lincoln. Lincoln has replaced the battery and also the Powertrain Control Module and neither of these has corrected the problem.”

An owner from Texas filed a complaint on the NHTSA website stating:

“A warning appears on the dash ‘stop safely now and the vehicle rapidly comes to a complete stop and is unable to be moved. This has occurred on three occasions, during 2 of which the car stalled in an active driving lane on a highway, resulting in life-threatening situations. The app said ‘high voltage battery warning’ triggered by ‘another event.’ Being investigated by Lincoln, who is re-acquiring the vehicle due to inability to appropriately diagnose and resolve the issue.”

Other owners have similar complaints:

Another complaint about a “brand new vehicle” with only 3,000 miles on the clock, had several warning messages from the beginning. These included “high-voltage battery warning” and “Full Accessory Power Active.”

When the Kentucky owner took the car to the local Lincoln dealer, the initial diagnosis was a dead battery.

“This was impossible due to the fact I drove the car 500 miles from Alabama to KY on 12-21. Today, 2-2-22, my wife was driving home from work, and the car shut off on the interstate. When I say shut off, I mean it died at 65 mph. She tried to press the accelerator and the car just continued to de-accelerate. The check engine light popped up and said ‘Stop Safely Now’. Luckily, my wife was able to pull off the interstate without causing an accident.”

There were more messages, but according to the complaint, nothing helped. Ultimately the owner of the car says, “This car is a $85,000 deathtrap. Lincoln needs to take this very seriously and an investigation needs to (be) open to find out why this vehicle is behaving like this. It is not safe to drive.”
