Re: Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

You really should get yourself a good dual speed OBDII interface and Forscan. I've got an old ScanGaugeII for quick easy readings, and an ELM327 "BAFX Products OBDII Diagnostic Interface" (amazon.com) used to bluetooth to my android (LG G7 ThinQ) phone to run the free versions of 2 apps, Torque Lit...

Re: Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

As I said in my previous post, they proposed $3,600 to replace the AC Compressor, a bolt-on part accessible from underneath that has an internal electric motor paired with a compressor. RockAuto has the CV6Z19703G compressor for $1,415, while dealerships often charge around $2,400 for the same part....

Re: Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

Just got the car back. They say it was the Air Conditioner assembly that had too little resistance at some point in the recennt past, triggering P0AA6 Yellow Wrench, so I had to pay $174 for diagnostics, not on the 8-year warranty. I haven't had the Yellow Wrench appear enroute back and forth to the...

Re: Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

Good info there Heima. The 15N03 tech bulletin was for earlier models. I'd hope they put in some extra insulation or separation in the main wiring harness after they learned of the vulnerability there. Could be anything causing this. --- A dealership tech at least has experience working on many Hybr...

Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

We got the Yellow Wrench recently in routine usage, and the car still works basically OK so far. Got it home anyway. 2016 Focus EV Going to see if it is driveable to a Ford dealership for warranty repairs. The P0AA6 code seen means the high voltage system isn't isolated (resistance too low) from the...

Re: Outrageous Green Focus Electric?

The Bolt has "Shock" color (yellow-green), and I charged next to one a couple of days ago. Too flashy for me, but Camaro's look like vintage "Hot Wheels" toys in their green:

Re: "Yellow Wrench" light while driving in the rain... later red warning!

I have a Ford case number, from @Ford twitter conversations. The old Service Advisor called me and still doesn't seem to understand how TSB 20-2004 fixes it. I called the Service Manager, and she agreed with me! ..... Surprising they aren't just circling the wagons against me. Since I already bought...

Re: Any advice. Lost 30%+ range and Dealer said no dice

thanks for sharing. I'll have to give that a read. I'm pretty good with my circuits and basic electrical stuff, but I freely admit I have no idea what happens when there is an issue with one cell in a parallel group of cells. Yep, I had to think about Kirchhoff principles too, and battery models in...

Re: Outrageous Green Focus Electric?

That color grows on ya. I like it now. Reminds me of aphids, or maybe apple Jolly Ranchers, and one of them tastes better..... Kermit would choose that color, no doubt. I did a search of used Outrageous Green Focuses (Foci?) and they do exist, just in ICE models on the market. No EV green ones. My E...
