I need to replace the rear pads and rotors on my 2015 Fusion Energi (~62k miles).  Based on what I have read online I need to put the rear calipers electric actuators controlling the parking brake function in "maintenance" (service) mode before I can attempt to retract them to make way for the new pads.  Once the work is done I will need to take them out of maintenance mode to drive the car again.

 

I tried the following sequence that I found on YouTube unfortunately it is not Fusion Energi specific.

 

-put key in "on" (not start position)

-simultaneously press the accelerator to the floor and press the e-brake switch down (dis-engage) hold position on both items

-turn the key "off"

-Turn the key "on" within 5 seconds of shutting it off

 

Left most display screen should indicate that the rear brakes are in maintenance mode. 

 

Well o tried this a couple of times and it did not work.  is this sequence correct?

 

Taking it out of maintenance mode requires you to do the same only this time holding the e-brake switch up (engage) and cycling the switch on and off.

 

Thanks for looking

Maybe you aren't turning the car back on quick enough? https://youtu.be/zq9wEPetVeg

Thanks it took several attempts but I was able to have it enter "in" and "out" of maintenance mode.

 

All the best

Mike, 

 

62k miles seems early for rear brakes, especially with electric regen.  Did something go wrong with your brakes, or is this assumed to be typical?  My Escape hybrid just needed rear brakes for the first time at 140k miles.

Both pads had worn unevenly and the slide pins grease had totally dried up. I replaced pads and rotors and cleaned the pins and greased them properly. Torqued my wheels and brakes are perfect now. I will check the pins again this spring when I swap the brake fluid out.

Cheers

Dang.  My rear brakes looked brand new at 65k miles.  Of course I almost always drove in L and mostly feeway miles.
