Re: FFE is gone

If you think its affordable, I highly recommend any model Tesla. (The Model Y is AWESOME.) Joe Rogan had Rich Benoit on his show a while back, and Rich had an interesting story about how to make the proven Model S affordable for the not-so-rich amongst us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPmbyIxSHq0...

Re: Ford Focus RS-E

Many lines of sofware code to modify! The battery is in two big chunks that don't fit anywere else. Tons of engineering to do here.

Re: Yellow Wrench P0AA6, uh-oh

It's an electrical Gremlin. Appeared twice early on, now several trips later, no problem with the AirConditioner being a current path from high voltage to ground, no more Yellow Warnings. .... for now.....

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...
