Re: Replacing electric heater?

Before you replace your heater, make sure you don't have air in the cabin-heater coolant loop. I suppose if you turn on the heater and you don't see the climate power consumption go up on the dash, that could be a sign. If you have Forscan working on your car (OBDII dongle + app) you can see what th...

Re: Battery Percentage

Back in 2014 with this thread was started, the %charge was not available. It wasn't till an update to Sync that added a tab to the home screen to get the tab with the state of charge and start times etc. My 2012 also has the charge info and suspect they all do now...on the infotainment screen.

Re: Debating buying a 2013, what is the typical battery life?

My advice, look at the range you get when the car is fully charged. Then give it a good testdrive with your average driving style...don't baby it as it will give you a false sense of the range you can expect. At least 20 miles. Take the actual miles driven and subtract from the original range estima...

Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

Here's some comments from my experience. The SSN issues doesn't necessarily mean it is a EV related (8yr 100k) problem. I had an SSN issue a year and a half ago where my battery was replaced. However, the week before that diagnosis was made, the dealer diagnosed a relay that was not covered under th...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

When I got my new 33.5KWh battery, it was the 2nd time I had a battery pulled from the car. The first time, the battery was "repaired" and put back in. I suspect that the determination to replace the battery depends on the issue. I heard that a car manufacturer has to support a product for 10 years....

Re: 50 amp outlet

My understanding is the breaker is to protect the home wiring, not necessarily the equipment attached to it. If the wire in the walls is rated for 50A, then the breaker will protect your wiring from burning up in the walls. Now for the device you plug into the receptacle. I have an alarm clock that ...

Re: My FFE has died - symptoms of battery failure

First of all, your symptoms seem similar to mine when the car needed the replacement battery. As for a loaner car, I'd venture to guess that it isn't mandatory that anything be provided to you unless the warranty provides it and I don't think it does. Ford or the Dealer may provide it on good will. ...

Re: '14 FFE Blowing Cold Air and No Heat

I had this issue when I had my battery replaced and the dealer forgot to put the coolant back in. After I filled it myself, 2 of the 3 coolant loops were able to purge the air out of the system except the cabin heater loop. If standing in front of the car looking at the motor bay and the hood up, th...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

Congrats. I had my 2012 battery replaced just over a year ago. Make sure they don't forget to put the coolant back in...my dealer forgot that step. They also forgot to ensure all the high voltage connections were nice and snug. almost a year following the battery replacement I got the stop safely no...

Re: FFE Wont Accept 32A charging

That's exactly what I was thinking as I've had this problem before. Check the coolant. If it starts to charge at high current but later encounters a charging fault, then there is a chance the reason is due to coolant or air in the loop and the on board charger is getting too hot. It will attempt to ...
