The other day, I got a message from the app, when I at work tried to see the miles to empty.
That the car went into deep sleep to conserve battery , because I have not started it in awhile, (it was 3 days).
So the app, remote functions and telling me where it is (address) was not going to function till I manually at the car with remote unlock, lock or start car.
This is all fine and dandy, till you go on a vacation and want to check on your vehicle, and the app ,won't give you a location.
Is there a way to extend the time/hours before this happens.
I put a volt meter on the battery and it was still fully charged and did a load test, the battery is fine, It just seems ford added a timer to these app functions to keep from draining the battery if the car sits for weeks, but 3 days is a little short.

I never got that notification until my car sat for about 2 weeks last winter.

I tend to not use the remote to lock the car, I use the button on the door, Could not chirping the horn hitting the remote lock button twice doing it?
Nope, doesn't matter how the car is locked.

Mine is closer to 2 weeks before deep sleep alert in app (always over 1). I always use remote and get horn to chirp.

Mine will go into deep sleep after somewhere between one and two weeks. However, if I leave my dashcam in "Parking" mode (where the image sensor and 30 seconds of video memory remain active in case it feels an impact), it will flip to deep sleep after 1 to 2 days.

2 weeks for me.

Get a battery tender (not charger) and put the pony car on it. $100ish, tops.

OR go start it within that 2 week period.
