Hi,

I'm trying to reset the BMS on 67 plate Kuga however on searching this forum and the likes and using the " press 5 times rear flight switch and then hazard buttons 3 times" to no avail.

Is there anything else I can try?

You could try this, taken from the owners manual, but haven’t tried it myself

The owner's manual says this:

"After battery replacement, or in some

cases after charging the battery with an

external charger, the battery management

system requires eight hours of vehicle sleep

time to relearn the battery state of charge.

During this time your vehicle must remain

fully locked with the ignition switched off.

Note: Prior to relearning the battery state

of charge, the battery management system

may temporarily disable some electrical

systems."

The implication is that a reset is not necessary, IF the car is kept in the condition listed above for the minimum of 8 hours.

This video shows the method you have tried, sometimes helps when you can see the process demonstrated as in latter part of video
