Re: Remote start during long term parking for 12v

The remote system will shut down (you won't be able to start it) if the car isn't communicated with for a few days (3 I think???). When I'm gone on a long trip, I just refresh the status on the main page of the app and that does the trick. I don't remote start it. Never had any issues with the batte...

Sounds like it's the bunny hop.

You'll find other posts on it.

Re: Like New 2014 FFE Ice Storm Metallic Less Than 6K Miles

Yes, a person should research to understand what they are buying, and what the market value is. But like I said before, EVERYTHING is expensive in California, and so it is a captive market. Sure, you could look outside of the state for deals, but then there is the cost to get the car into the state...

Re: Like New 2014 FFE Ice Storm Metallic Less Than 6K Miles

Well, the dealership is now claiming it is sold. They didn't lower the price, so I wonder who bought it for how much? Somebody here? I hope so. There's always some sucker somewhere. I paid $1999 for a 20th Anniversary Macintosh (when Apple was closing them out) and then immediately sold it on eBay ...

APIM replaced, now what?

I was getting intermittent navigation faults on my FFE. They replaced my APIM. I had to re-pair my phone (bluetooth) to the car. Anything else I should look into? Radio presets stayed, not completely sure the app and such are working. I was able to remote start the car, but didn't get the notificati...

Hey, they lowered the price to $8999. Come on, somebody buy this already!
WAY too high for a '14. Trade in value is approx $4500 (on a good day)

Re: Charge fault when using value charge setting

My value charge feature works without issue.

Charges my car from 1 to 5am when rates are dirt cheap.

Re: Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

Might try calling Ford. What's the worst they can say? When my grandparents passed away I purchased my grandfather's PT Cruiser GT from the estate. About 4 months after the 3 year warranty expired, the power steering pump started to leak quite a bit. Was going to be about $1600 to fix, as most of th...

Re: iOS 14 and Ford EV's

Sorry I wasn't more clear.

Apple mentioned there would be EV features in CarPlay with iOS 14 (knowing available range of the car, locating charging stations, etc). I was curious if those features would work with Sync 3, or would require Sync 4.
