Re: Fully charged but charger keeps turning on

Could be the TMS, but another possibility is it could be kicking on to charge the 12V battery. When my 12V was basically on its last leg and couldn't hold a charge hardly at all, I noticed the EVSE clicking on from time to time. If you haven't changed your 12V battery in a while, you might want to g...

Been making a few blog posts about it too: https://spareelectrons.wordpress.com/
Great blog! Super relevant to me as I think about a Bolt as well, thanks!

Most likely a Chevy Bolt. My biggest complaint about the Focus is the small range. But I'm open to suggestions!

Five years, 70k miles

Hey all, I haven't posted here in almost five years but thought I'd provide a little update. I passed 5 years of FFE ownership back in May (no more payments!) and am now over 70k miles. This pic is from a while back. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fbglmuf2xmY8yTf15F1tBPir-dRm5pDr/view?usp=sharing ...

Re: Can't sync value charge profiles

I don't know what caused this, but when I drove to work the next day and tried to sync again, it worked. So it was either something related to being at home (on the wifi) or just a problem with the myfordmobile infrastructure, or ???

Can't sync value charge profiles

Anyone ever seen this? Whenever I change the value charge profile, I get a message that says "value charge profiles have failed to sync with g FFE." I can sync GO times, I can update to see current charge status. Any ideas? https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bynw_oy9gVELU0N2QTVnYWpPRHc/edit?usp=sharing

Re: Our One Year Anniversary

I don't mean to be a hater, but the carpool lane thing seems wrong to me. When I was a kid living in LA, carpool lanes were made to ease traffic congestion. Air quality was a side benefit. Now obviously you focus on the air more, but I hope all those with access stickers are bringing a few passenge...

Re: Battery Replacement Cost

Hopefully, your dealer wasn't trying to misinform you... more likely they just don't know their PZEVs from their ZEVs. (And that's why they are only selling cars for a living, as opposed to designing them.) Huh. Yeah, after some basic research online, you are absolutely right. My dealer stated some...

Re: Battery Replacement Cost

In California the battery and motor is warrantied for 10 years or 150k miles, due to state law. This is what I was told at the dealership anyway.

Re: When are you in charge now mode verses value charge mode

Am I correct that I'm in charge now mode and with the button on the top of the screen under when it says it will be done charging says Value Charge so if I click it, then it goes into Value Charge ? I think you are correct. I agree it's confusing. Playing with mine right now I can't seem to get it ...
