Need help, error messages after jumping vehicle

Please help. I jumped another vehicle with my 2015 expedition and now I get a bunch of error messages and have no power steering. I checked fuses in the engine compartment and everything looks good. This is my wife's car and we need it Monday.

Low Battery Features Temporarily Turned Off
Hill Descent Control Fault
AdvanceTrac Service
Turn Power Off To Save Battery

Thanks in advance.

Whatís your battery voltage? Based on the messages you listed, sounds like the battery is too low. Maybe it was on its way out, and the jump start was too much for it and your alternator canít charge it up.

But if the truck is giving you at least two low battery error messages per your original post, then the voltage must be too low for the systems.

Iíd check the battery voltage since itís simple and may solve your problem. If you have an extra battery around, stick that one in and try it

How old is the battery? 3 years/original/OEM right? Maybe 4? I agree it might have been on its way out.

Strange electrical faults in modern cars and trucks aren't unusual with a defective battery. You should have battery load tested. Many parts houses can do this at no charge. If it passes you'll have to start looking deeper into the electrical system.

Looks like it is the 125A fuse that is built into the battery post. Its under the left side black cap in this picture. Does anyone know what this has a special name or if it is a dealer only item?
