Re: Numerous Issues - HELP!

Definitely sounds like there are a few gremlins. 2 things...1) When I get in the car, I first press the start button with my foot on the brake and then buckle my seatbelt. By then, the green "ready" light is lit and I can put the car in gear and go. Every once and awhile, I'm just a bit too fast or ...

Re: Device found under steering wheel in new to me FFE

I think it is one of those alarms they try to sell you when you buy the car. The dealers use them while the car is on the lot, and when you buy the car, they try to sell it to you and a way-marked-up price. If you bite, then they give you a fob and enable the alarm. If you don't, they disable it wit...

Re: 2014 Ford Focus Electric Battery Question

So I got a replacement battery for my 2012 Focus Electric about 2 years ago when my car would not run. After about 5 days at the dealer, they told me I was getting a new 33kwh battery....and it has been great ever since. The price on the invoice was $22k, of which I paid nothing; however, that's the...

Re: Charging Fault

F13 is the on-board charger. You'll have to look up in the electrical service manual to see what that protects. The other 2 fuses don't seem relevant. F15 is unused and F18 is the wiper motor. Does the car charge under some condition....as you are saying that it drives? You might try another "charge...

Re: OEM Tires Worn Out After Only 12K Miles!

I have 60+K miles on my focus. I'm on the 3rd set of tires and they just about need replacing. I'm getting about 21K per set. I'm generally pretty hard on the acceleration but rather mild on the braking as I usually get scores in the high 90's per the brake coach. The first set of tires were Low Rol...

Re: 2016 focus electric only shows 57 mile budget

I'm pretty sure that it wasn't till 2017 that the larger battery was available increasing the range above 110 miles per charge. 57 miles at 90% charge actually could be ok. Extrapolating, that'd be 63 miles at 100%. So depending on the miles on the ODO, that could be ok...new, it should have been 76...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

That's what they did to me....they forgot the coolant. I can't even imagine how they can forget that. Anyway, you were lucky to get to 76% charge...mine wouldn't make it nearly that far before it stopped with a charge fault. I was using an L2 charger. I suppose if you used L1, then it might be able ...

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.
