Sync 3 Instability

I haven't been on the forum for a long time but last Aug I traded in my 2015 FFE, Montgomery, for a new 2018 FFE, Cromwell, as I wanted to take advantage of the bigger battery and CCS charging while the Focus is still extant in North America - Damn stupid of Ford to get out of passenger cars but tha...

Re: New owner of 2017 FFE

Why is it bad? I don't know. Superstition? I was under the impression that freezing the battery would permanently damage it. Your report is greatly encouraging. I will no longer worry about leaving it in the cold. It rarely gets very hot up here in the Great North, so the battery will probably not ...

Re: 17.1 kWh @ 20,000 miles

Ok, Yes I should know this after 18 months plus with Montgomery but what screen displays the battery capacity and what is the “buttonology” to get there? I’ve looked through the readily accessible screens several times and have yet to find this information. Obviously I’m missing something quite “sim...

Re: New Recall - 3G modem?

Carl Well after what was a far too long and overly-convoluted process I finally got the 15N04 Embedded Modem Replacement recall done yesterday but it certainly did not earn Ford any kudos from me. If anything it has started to pushed me away from buying any further Ford products, Remember that I am ...

Re: 30 Amp vs 40 Amp Charging

There are plenty of good comments here regarding charging capacity and future-proofing your home EV charging infrastructure. Only you can decide what works for your situation and gives you the flexibility you need and can foresee needing. However a word of electrical installation caution here. Whate...

Re: New Recall - 3G modem?

The 15N04 "EMBEDDED MODEM REPLACEMENT" shows up for me as well here in Canada as well. It would seem rather probable that this is the 3G modem replacement considering that the 2G network is supposed to be shut down at the end of the year. It wouldn't make sense to put in another 2 G modem but then a...

Re: Activating Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Possible?

It really is quite astonishing that activating the LED strip to function as DRLs is so problematic. DRLs are legislated here in Canada and in the case of the FFE it is in fact the LED strip that satisfies the requirement for DRLs. I would be shocked if there is any wiring harness difference in the F...

Re: So Ford admits it's working on a long range EV after all

This certainly does seem like a lot of speculation given that Mark Fields’ quotation was but a single sentence that seems to be a begrudging acknowledgement that the competition have forced Ford into something it really doesn’t have any internal inclination to pursue. While the article talks of buil...

Re: No Ford Long Range BEV

Along the same lines I just saw a similar article at electec.co whilst reading up on another topic. It is the third article down (at the moment but it will displace down with time) at: http://electrek.co/ What is particuarly interesting to me is that the comments are made by CEO Mark Fields so perha...

Re: No Ford Long Range BEV

Hold the presses! If Ford isn't making a 200 mile EV then why did it spend so much to get a Model X??? Ford buys Model X for $199,950! Jamie, yes I saw that earlier today. Quite a premium to say the least and just to know how and with what you are going to get trounced!! I dare say they have had a ...
