Re: Battery Temp Sensor Intermittent/Erratic

I read your post. My car is having crazy problems during 90+ heat. My dealer checked the 12V battery and said it was good. Any guesses? They've had my car for 3 weeks now and waiting on Ford Corporate to interpret what the codes mean Here is my original post http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/view...

Re: Battery overheating? during drive and charging

He pulled the codes. Has Ford assisting. I have one of very few (3??) in NW INdiana. These techs don't see the EVs often. Hopefully he saw your reply.
They are charging the car and getting errors as we speak. Its 95 again here.

Thanks

Re: How long will the FFE last?

Where do you live? What is the winter like? I have a 2015 FFE and live in suburban Chicago. The polar vortex will have you calling off with a 2015. I have a 24 mile one way commute with no charging at the office. If it is below 32, I use the ICE vehicle, otherwise, i'm driving with the seat heater o...

Re: Battery overheating? during drive and charging

Update 7/5 Ford replaced my 110 charger under warrantee. It was causing a charging fault while the dealers charger worked fine. I never use this charger. I have a 220 in the garage. While the car is sitting in front of the dealer. More warning lights go on. Back home in the loaner. It’s about 90 out...

Re: 2016 focus electric only shows 57 mile budget

I would be leary of that GOM stating 57 miles range. In Chicago, 80 degrees, you should be 70ish. My 2015 tops out at about 80 miles under ideal driving conditions and temp. The warrantee clearly states hybrid/electric unique component 8 years/100,000 also loss of battery capacity is NOT covered. Un...

Storing FFE for 2-3 months

I will be out of town in the winter. The car will be stored in a garage in the Midwest for 2-3 months. There will be access to electric.

What is the best thing to do to ensure that the car (battery) is still good when I get back?

Re: Go times and Value charging dependent on TCU?

Sorry, I'm not an engineer, but a FFE owner.

I have greatly discounted charging 10PM - 6 AM. so i always start at 11:00PM, done by 1:30 am. I leave for work at 7:15 am

Is it a problem to have your battery at 100% for a length of time?
