Re: Adding Extra Battery Power to FFE

My interest is certainly peaked :shock: All you'll need now is a Chademo or CCS charging system!

Re: Using FORscan to improve range

Hello everyone, I am a proud new owner of an FFE. I apologise if this is covered somewhere else. I did a search in the forum but didn't see anything. I have been doing a lot of research on what modifications a person can make with FORscan. There is a company that makes a module that plugs into the ...

none of your images work. If you need another way to post images, I've usedhttps://postimages.org/ with much success. That and unlike some image hosting, the images don't expire or go away after a while.
Thanks! Ill definitely be using this from now on!

DIY upper HV pack removal

Be prepared, this pretty lengthy. To start off, my 2012 FFE is throwing DTCs P0AA6, P1A0A, B10D7, and B1399. P0AA6 is the Electric Battery system isolation fault, and could be caused due to the coolant leak in my case. There is visible antifreeze that has leaked out of the coolant lines. P1A0A is mo...

Re: PERFORMANCE TUNING ANYONE?

Gain control of the inverter, you gain control of the motor. There's a reason why a inverter/motor controller is called a controller. It tells the motor how much power to put down.

Re: PERFORMANCE TUNING ANYONE?

Think less gas performance and more electric performance. Basically, how do you make an RC car go faster? You increase the voltage. Same goes for an electric car.

Re: PERFORMANCE TUNING ANYONE?

If you want control over the motor, you're gonna need to gain control of the brain of the car, or the inverter. In the FFE, I think its the TCM, or the Transmission Control Module. If you take off the plastic motor cover under the hood, the first thing you'll see is the TCM. Most likely, the softwar...

Re: can replace 23kw battery by new 33kw wiht same AC charge

Found a link explaining how to take out the Li-ion battery.

18650 laptop cells for increased range?!

Ok so recently I've been looking at some videos (search YouTube for Jehu Garcia) about how people have been taking apart laptop batteries, removing the 18650 cells inside, and using them to power their project electric cars. I was just wondering if anyone thinks this is possible with the FFE. I know...

Re: Emergency Backup Battery power

If you want, you can also collect a couple thousand 18650 cells ( You can get them from "dead"(but not really dead, usually it's just one bad cell or a bad BMS) laptop batteries or power tools. Just ask your local places that recycle batteries like Lowes, Home Depot, and even Waste Management. They'...
