Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

Update: I noticed an update was downloaded in my Nav screen just after passing the 40,000 mile point in my 2012 FFE. I subsequently had 17 SSN alarms with a motor shut down, in a few weeks period. After talking to the dealer about the lack of warranty, I filed a complaint with the Fed. Dept of Trans...

Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

Are you sure about that? The FFE has an additional electric powertrain warranty for 100,000 miles: My Warranty Guide (2014, p.11) lists the components included in the "Electric Unique Components Coverage" as: high voltage battery packs, high voltage charger, DC-DC convertor, Electric Drive Module A...

Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

Nice try. I live in area code 28412. I am 16 miles South, from the center, of area code 28403. Jones Ford is almost 45 miles from my house, about 3/4 of which is 55 or 60 mph. I haven't seen >69 miles of range from my car in more than a year and I don't get that range on the 45-55mph roads around my...

Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

I live in Wilmington, NC. There is only 1 Ford dealer I can get to with my FFE,
Capital Ford of Wilmington. They are a branch of Capital Ford in Raleigh.
Per the County tax office I have the only FFE in our County.

Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

I have received 14 SSN warnings in the last week & 1/2. My car had the update a year and a half ago that was supposed to stop these SSN failings. I talked to my local dealer, Capital Ford, about it and they told me my warranty was no good. I have over 40,000 miles on my 2012 FFE. I told the dealer I...

Re: Question : Regarding Portable generators and the FFE

My Kill_A-Watt 120v meter says the Ford 120V supply cord is drawing 11.5 amps when charging the FFE. This works out to about 1380watts which is right at the Honda 2000's continuous supply limit. I wouldn't try charging the FFE on a hot day with the Honda.

Re: Single Speed Transmission

I checked my Ford Focus Electric transmission oil level today. It was right where it should be , just barely running out of the fill hole with the fill plug out. The fill & drain plugs require a Torx 55 driver to remove them. Ford has improved on filling their new cars with transmission oil. I did f...

Re: Single Speed Transmission

As for the comment from dfw123 on neutral coasting... I see no reason coasting in neutral would be damaging to the FFE. The transmission gears are turning any time the cars front wheels are turning. The spinning big gears lubricate the transmission by throwing the oil up on all the gears(& bearings)...
