Guess no one else is having this issue?

Update #3: Dealer replaced the Body Control Module on 2/8. Couldn't get the tire pressure sensor to reset. Had to park an Edge next to my Escape to reset the Escape tire pressure sensors. Escape would not reset it's own or the ones on the Edge. Dealer pulled the fuse on the Accessory Interface Protocol Module (hard reset), and that cleared the tire pressure warning light. However, the system still doesn't work and the blower still blows when it's not supposed to.
The regional Ford service engineer replaced the Accessory Interface Protocol Module today (2/13) and reprogrammed it. Problems still not fixed. So the Ford engineer elevated the issue and has a call in to the Ford engineers in Europe (!!) who designed the system.

Is the 2013 Escape ready for prime time? Man I'm really feeling bad for you!

Thanks for the sympathy ... not sure what's going on with my Escape. I find it hard to believe that mine is the only one with a "ghost in the machine". My primary concern is the blower coming on in the middle of the night or while I'm away and NOT shutting off.
So as of Friday, the regional Ford service engineer checked the wiring harnesses and connectors. Still not fixed. They were waiting until today (Monday) to hear back from Europe.

Update #5: Got a call yesterday (2/18) from the dealer. The European engineers got back to the Ford service engineer and recommended checking the blower relay (part 5M5Z*14N089). It was installed incorrectly by the factory. The dealer replaced it and the blower seems to be fixed. HOWEVER ... the LCD touch screen display is not working correctly. When I touch the Entertainment corner, the Services page displays ... when I touch the Climate corner, the Bluetooth page displays. WTF. Remember when the dealer replaced the BCM, the tire pressure sensors weren't working? They also replaced the Accessory Protocol Interface Manager and now the Sync display is not working.
A total of 5 different parts have been replaced: Blower actuator, HVAC control head, Body Control Module, Accessory Protocol Interface Manager, and the Blower Relay. The blower seems to be fixed, but now the Sync display is mucked up and I don't even know if the tire pressure sensor system is working ... God knows what else isn't working.

Update #6: The regional Ford service engineer was at the dealer. He reprogrammed the APIM ... all seems to be working but we'll see when I drive the car for the next couple of days.
