Ford Escape Error Codes

I just had a 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Titanium set up for towing with a Blue Ox tow plate and Air Force One braking system. The installer said they have experience setting up Ford Escapes for towing in the past. When they were done I had two error codes: blind spot system malfunction and cross traffic system fault. The installer said a Ford dealership could remove the error codes. Took the car to a Ford dealership and they cannot find the cause for the problem and said the aftermarket Air Force One and charging line might be the problem. They said several modules were hooked into and to take the car back to the installer. I called the installer and he said the only thing they hooked into was for the tow lights. Both installer and Ford are pointing fingers at each other. Anybody else experience problems, i.e., error codes on the Escape after tow bar and/or Air Force one installation?

I watched the video of that install. They have to remove so much I canít imagine it didnít involve disconnecting some sensors. Might want to check out the video on etrailer

I have a Fore Escape Tritium Hybrid also and I get those code once and a while also. My escape is NOT setup for towing at all. The codes go away after a few minutes. Ford says the software corrects itself after being turned on for awhile.

I have a 2021 hybrid that I flat tow. I get various error codes for loss of communication etc. As stated, they go away after a while. I have never taken to the dealer to ask but one day I will

Ford service took another look at the Ford Escape and tracked the error codes to a cut ground wire that was cut during the installation of the trailer wiring harness by the trailer hitch installers. The diagnosis and fix cost me more than the installation of the trailer hitch. I am contacting the hitch installers about that. Thanks for everyoneís advice.
