Hi all, newbie here.
I bought my 2013 C-MAX Hybrid used about a month ago. Everything is going great... until this morning. Came to work, parked the car. Was told I need to move it because they need to remove stumps where I was parked. They were working a little ways down from me with a (I assume it's called a Stump Remover) loud and large piece of heavy equipment. I get in to start and nothing happens. I follow the manual and put my 3 button key fob against the steering wheel and after a couple of tries, it starts! But.... I can't get into drive! None of the gears work. I keep going backwards until I am at the curb. I did see one error screen about my parking assist wasn't working other than that the panel was normal. I ended up turning it off. Tried again, got it started and was finally able to move forward and park across the way. But again, once I stopped and turned it off, the panel was dead again. I couldn't lock the car up or anything. The manual did say that interference (like metal and cell phones) can cause the vehicle not to start. But what about stump removers?? LOL I will test it again after they leave, but it was really freaking me out. Has anyone else had this happen?
