I was planning a trip from Houston to Dallas next week in my DE-P with 12K miles. I had assumed that the DEs were not having this issue after the initial break-in. Guess that I was wrong and maybe I will take the Navigator instead.I experienced "Battery System Fault Vehicle, Vehicle Powering Down in 2 minutes" last Sunday while 200 miles from home with a car full of people, luggage and skis. Odometer 7655 miles. I was on my way to a DC fast charger and preconditioning at the time. Was able to get off the NYS Thruway and to a parking lot. Called Roadside Assistance. Determined it was going to be towed to Tysons Service Center. Was told yesterday after several days of diagnostics that it needs a new HV battery. I have no other information at this time.
Of note -- customer service authorizes $300/day for car/hotel expenses for a few days when event occurs while far from home.
Conveniently, the next morning the tow truck driver coordinated to stop by my house on way to service center to drop off luggage we couldn't fit into our ride home.
The individual causes of the Battery System Fault described in the various instances in this thread may not all be the same.
