Re: Problem to connect with MyFord Mobile / Ford dealer and service dont know what to do

Sounds like your APIM (touch screen module) is going bad. Ford had such a problem with these failing they extended the warranty to I think it was 5 years. There is a FSA on it i am sure you can find with google. I'd get that replaced if you can under warranty. If pulling the F1 fuse still doesn't wo...

Re: Does age of EV battery matters if it has low mileage?

A) Yes B) Forscan just has an estimated battery capacity remaining to empty. Alternatively there is an "enhanced" trip meter that says how many kWh/ have been used from the battery. I have used this with a little math to estimate my usable capacity. For example full charge down to 10% battery remain...

Re: Does age of EV battery matters if it has low mileage?

There are two things that degrade lithium batteries, age and usage. So to answer your question, yes all lithium batteries degrade with the passage of time. Lithium batteries don't like to be deeply discharged nor kept 100% fully charged. keeping a lithium battery for extended periods of time at eith...

Re: Dead 12V battery then traction control freaks out

To everyone having 12V issues due to the TCU I have found a Pseudo fix. No, I have no solution for Ford's shitty TCU but at least I have found a reasonable way to prevent it from killing my 12V battery. Over the last 11 months since I pulled the F1 fuse I have pondered various ways of powering the T...

I started on the passenger headlight assembly. I had already used my 2017 Focus Electric Wiring Diagram Manual to figure some things ...

Re: Debating buying a 2013, what is the typical battery life?

The problem is Ford doesn't want to support this car. After the 8 year warranty you are SOL if the battery coolant springs a leak inside the battery as has happened to several people. A replacement battery is over $20k so not worth it at all. Pretty much after the warranty the FFE is a disposable ca...
