Re: AC Turns On during DC Charging

Yeah someone mentioned that the AC comes on when DC fast charging. The car is doing everything it can to keep the batteries cool at that time. I know when I've fast charged my Bolt and another Bolt that I've rented they both made a huge racket as just about every fan on the car comes on to keep thin...

Re: More Aggressive Battery Regeneration

One of the EV's with paddles you're referring to is the Bolt. On the Bolt when you put the car into L you're in "One Pedal Mode" where taking your foot completely off the gas will start a max 0.2G deceleration. This will bring the car to a complete stop (you can adjust the amount of decel from 0-0.2...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

Note that they don't make the FFE anymore and it is likely don't make the batteries anymore either. Thus any replacements going forward would have to be refurbished. The lucky ones to get the larger pack happened to need a replacement while the FFE was still in production (or shortly thereafter when...

Re: Road trip (rental)

Is this enhanced meter in the car, online, or as a phone app?
Its in the car on the left display. You use the left arrow keys on the steering wheel to find it.

Re: Focus wont start and has no power

Its been a while but I believe it is a smaller battery as the FFE doesn't require the "cranking amps" that the ICE Focus requires.

Re: Focus wont start and has no power

Your problem is not with the high voltage battery (it is fine); your problem is with the 12V battery.

Put a charger on it (or even jump it from an (gasp) ICE vehicle). Note that you may now have to replace the 12V battery (its under the hood).

This is a common occurrence with the FFE.

Being from the mid-west: When we say "up" it usually means "up north" and not "up a mountain" as the landscape is generally flat LOL.

Re: Sync 3 Instability

You actually may need a new module, not just a software reload. Sync 3 in my old C-Max was a delight compared to Sync 2 in the FFE. Everything worked as advertised except for the charge now/value charge setting: With Sync 2 that setting seemed to be tied to the locations, in Sync 3 it seemed like it...

Re: Ford is recalling 120v chargers
