Re: Tire Noise/Wear

I've had my car for 5 years now and the tire wear on this car has been the most even than any car I've owned. Although the front tires wear faster than any other car I've owned, the inbound and outbound sides on the front and rear tires are even...such that the tires are flat across the top. Take i...

Re: FFE 12V Stranded Me for the First Time

Yeah, I'm not sure either. It says if the battery drops below 11.7v it will disconnect. Then a small load change will reconnect it, such as stepping on the brake pedal...but if the battery is already disconnected then how can there be a load change? Also, I'm not sure that I want to gamble $100 on i...

FFE 12V Stranded Me for the First Time

It took almost a year. Left work tonight at 11pm. Got in my car, hit the power button, and everything starts flickering. :| Had to have a buddy come jump me to get home. It's a fairly new battery, too. I replaced it about 6 months ago with a new Motorcraft battery from the dealer. I wish Ford could ...

Re: Dead 12V battery then traction control freaks out

I'll have to pass that on to my dealer once they have the door latches in for my recall. I'd like them to do the same to mine.

Re: 12v Solutions?

The FFE's battery is an oddball size. It's a group 67 battery that is only used by the FFE and the C-Max. It's pretty small with less than 400CCA, but it doesn't see the high amp draw of a traditional starter. You may be hard pressed to find an AGM battery that fits. I found this post over at Focus ...

Re: 12v Solutions?

I guess I might have to pick one of those up. My car has had all its recalls and updates except for the door latches which I have scheduled with my dealer on the 28th. I might ask them to plug it in to the diagnostic computer and see if it has any software updates available to it that might alleviat...

12v Solutions?

Has the overarching solution to the dying 12v batteries been a software update? When I bought my '12 FFE last December I started having a dead battery a couple months later. I chalked it up to a bad battery. The car had a fairly new (dated 2/16) battery in it, but it was a cheap no-name battery. So ...

Re: '17 FFE Dead 12Volt battery

This is starting to seem a little ridiculous that after 5 model years of the FFE the same problem is plaguing the '17s as it did the '12s. I had to replace my 12v battery a few weeks ago. Although I think it was just a crap battery. It was barely a year old, but the battery had no labeling on it wh...
