Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

My 2014 is in the dealer pending high voltage harness replacement and I was just left a message stating the part is back ordered with no estimated shipment date. He felt it would be 2-3 weeks before they would get it in. At least they got me a loaner but I have no car pool sticker or comfort (Nissia...

Re: Max Current input

I'm pretty positive the limit is 30 amps. On almost all the charge points in Bay Area they are running on 208v and I never have seen more than 6.1kw ( usually 5.8kw) . I did how ever find one that was 240v and showed something like 7.2 kW. So that computes to roughly 30a.

Re: Quick charge project

Wow! Very exciting! I have been dreaming about putting in a 10kw charger to the car to allow me to put a 10kw generator on a hitch. This would essentially work as funky range extender. Still not sure how the car would react as it accelerates and see 10kw less than it expects. As you start to really ...

Re: Complete Discharge with log

It not super clear but what you see in the overview is actually around 11% to 4% true pack state of charge. I only started recording when my car was showing 2% on the my touch screen. The cell and pack voltages are low because the state of charge is so low.

Complete Discharge with log

I did a complete battery discharge driving my FFE and recorded the event using Forscan. I'm just over 12,400 miles and have never discharged the car past 2%. The battery depleted came up and and continued driving. Interesting finds from the complete discharge: - The actual percent (not displayed per...

Re: Regen KW Curve

Still not quite following. Which parameters give the "volts" and "amps" measurements that you're referring to? Is it the "Bat Pack Voll (Full pack voltage)" and "Batcurbecm (Full Battery current)" parameters, respectively? If so, apologies. It isn't clear from their names, which seem to imply stati...

Re: Regen KW Curve

I forgot to mention I also have the vehicle speed displayed in km/h

The regen is negative kw, negative because it's flowing into the pack no out.

I am recording amps and volts of the battery pack:

amps * Volts = Watts ; watts / 1000 = Kilowatts (kw)

Re: Battery not holding enough charge

I had a similar experience. I was down to 17.9 kWh before about 1% battery. It ended up being battery capacity miscalculation. Here is the gold standard for checking capacity: Fully charge the battery. With the car in your garage, turn it on and reset the trip meter. Roll down the windows, and turn...

Re: Regen KW Curve

So I got the data using Forscan ( http://www.forscan.org ). It is a ODB (On Board Diagnostic) reader program that is setup specifically for Ford Vehicles. Some one spent a lot of time building that awesome program and figuring out what all the data actually meant. Download the program, pick up a 12 ...

Re: Impact of lightweight 18" rims with 235/40 LRR tires??

I assume you are joking about track day at Laguna Seca - has anyone out there taken an ffe to the track? could be fun No I am not. It was quiet a bit of fun when I went. The car may not be that fast in the straights it was taking everything I had to go fast through the corners. Better tires would r...
