Blind Spot Monitor Function

So I realize that the FFE never had a Blind Spot Monitor available, but I'm thinking ahead to the Mach E and other EVs that Ford is working on here. Besides my Focus, our other car is a Mazda CX-5. When there is a car in your blind spot and you use the turn signal for that side, a chime sounds in ad...

When it happened last September, my dealer charged me ~$700 to replace the TCU with a new one. I'm not thrilled that the problems continue, but I str...

I also wanted to get DRLs for my FFE and checked with the dealer. There is no way to "program" them to come on according to the tech; it's a wiring thing. So I'm probably going to go to an electronics shop and have them re-wire the eyebrow LEDs to come on whenever the ignition is on.

Glad to hear.

As a follow up, I bought reconditioned 17 inch wheels from a '12 Focus Titanium and use those for my summer tires now.

Re: 17.1 kWh @ 20,000 miles

Just ran the test last weekend, got 16.4 kWh at 23,800 miles. Build date 01/13. Unscientific test method; drove around as normal until depleted to 50%, then ran the rest down with heater. Ambient temp at end of test was 54°F/12°C.

Thanks,

Re: Tire Pressure monitor

Many newer cars have switched to wheel speed instead of in-wheel sensors for TPMS, but the FFE is not one of them. Really? Didn't know that. In fact, I was under the impression just the opposite was going on, that early systems were wheel speed driven, but then with better batteries coming on, indi...

Re: Vehicle Health Report

Did you try to run it and it told you it couldn't complete? Or is this something that went away with Sync 3?
