Re: Sync 3 questions.

That is extremely interesting that you get climate controls using the 2018 Escape APIM.

Wonder if we can tweak the FFE APIM to get them.

Re: Sync 3 questions.

No, on the FFE the climate controls do not show up on Sync 3 (as they do in other Fords)

Trying to recall, I think some places sell "kits" to allow a Sync 2 to 3 upgrade.

Re: HV Battery Issues - Out of Warranty

If you're out of warranty by only 4 months, call Ford yourself. I had a PT Cruiser that was just out of warranty. Power steering pump started leaking. Was going to be $1500 to repair. Called Chrysler, they said you pay $150, we'll pay the rest, and they did.

Can't hurt.

Re: EV not charging (2015 FFE)

Hmmm, try setting up a value charge profile and then setting it to value charge.

Couldn't hurt to see what happens.

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...
