Re: Sync 3 questions.

That is extremely interesting that you get climate controls using the 2018 Escape APIM. Wonder if we can tweak the FFE APIM to get them. Yes. It's a setting you can change in FORScan. The escape APIM doesn't have climate control enabled by default either. I'll provide details when I do my write up ...

Re: The Focus CHAdeMO mod returns - Part 2

Good to hear. Keep us posted. While the capability to DCFC would be nice, there are essentially 0 useful CHAdeMO or CSS chargers within the piddly range of my '14 FFE. CSS has been stewing in the back of my mind thinking about a future when CSS chargers are prevalent around here and If/when it becom...

Re: FFE HID upgrade?

1. Aftermarket LEDs are no match for HID light output :lol: Respectfully disagree. Although it would be interesting to see a W/lumen comparison. Personally I see no need for higher wattage/brighter bulbs for low beams unless you want to be one of those self centered assholes that drives around blind...

Re: Sync 3 questions.

It's been long enough that I can't remember if it was something I tweaked with Forscan. I don't think it was. Might be worth a look all the same. Thanks Anti_Climax! That's exactly what I was looking for. It only took a little over 6 years for me to finally be fed up with the worthlessly slow Sync ...

Sync 3 questions.

I'm contemplating upgrading my '14 to sync 3. I have a couple questions for those with 2016-2018 FFE's Do the climate controls appear on the Sync 3 screen? Also is there an "info" screen like on Sync2 that shows battery percentage etc? I'd really appreciate anyone's thoughts who has had both a FFE w...

Re: Engineering Test Mode

Wow! Good find. I agree that it doesn't look useful except maybe if I get the wrench or dreaded SSN and am not at home to hookup my laptop and use forscan to read the DTCs.

Re: The Focus CHAdeMO mod returns - Part 2

Nice to see this getting more use after sefs moved on the the model 3. I got to see his setup years ago after he had recently sorted this all out and had his "super charger" in his garage. I wish I had the references and knowledge of how the car's systems work in order to be able to figure out how t...

Re: Locked Out! How?

Likely the fob is sufficiently shielded by being in the purse such that the car cannot detect the signal to know that he fob is in the car. If the fob battery is weak that would only make it easier or the car not to know the fob is inside.

You need a key or some B&E skills to get in without a key.
