A/C Evaporator Drain Location

The air conditioning smells a bit musty when I start it and on other cars that's meant that the drain line under the air conditioning evaporator clogged and there's some residual condensation in the box. On every other car I put it on the lift and there's a tube or a drain hole staring me in the fac...

Re: New to me 2013 Focus Electric - 42 mi on full charge?

The estimated range is based on some combination of the last usage rate and the current settings. Drive the car hard before shutdown and it will look low at startup, as well as the reverse. Startup and turn the heat on, and the estimated range will drop instantly. Once you start driving around, the ...

Re: Air Conditioning drawing more than normal

My car does this. The initial power drain to fire up the air conditioning compressor and pressurize the system is high, then shortly goes down to a very low number as the compressor only cycles on and off to maintain pressure. My GOM reading has wild fluctuations when cabin temperature control is tu...

Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

The car won't cool the cabin until the battery is happy, so you'll get warm air if you leave it on. But there's no indicator the battery is happy, so you'll never know when it's ready for you to turn the air conditioning on.

Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

In hot weather, the cooling system prioritizes cooling the HV battery before cooling the cabin. So the air conditioning compressor is running, but it's not your turn to get cold yet. After the battery temp is at a manageable level, cold air is diverted to you. This is normal.

Re: 2016 focus electric only shows 57 mile budget

The battery is covered if it fails or faults. If it degrades slowly, that's on you. Ford is specific in the warranty. And the number earlier is 110 MPGE, which is some EPA mathematical conversion to relate cost per mile to a gas car using numbers that may not be valid for you. The range number is th...
