Some 2005-2012 Mercury Mariner hybrid vehicles may exhibit a concern where the engine stalls soon after starting. This may actually be a crank/no-start condition being misdiagnosed due to the unique characteristics of the hybrid powertrain. DTC P0A7D (battery pack state of charge low) and/or P1A0C (engine disabled) may be present.
