Re: Adding Extra Battery Power to FFE

You'd probably need the boards or you'd have to be able to recreate the data stream the BMS expects to see. And that is my big stumbling block. Someday if ever feasible, I will upgrade my battery. The battery part and BMS part is no problem. However I'm a complete noob when it comes to canbus or kn...

Re: EVSE With Adjustable Amps

120V @ 6A would be painfully slow. I can also confirm it won't do more than 12A @ 120V It's a shame as I had a 30A 120V generator. If you still need me to verify I can see if it would charge that low. I tried it years ago and I don't remember what the minimum was. I want to say it was 5A but I hones...

Re: AT&T sunset and MyFordMobile app

I upgraded my '14 to Sync3. Surprisingly how easy it was. I also now have the mustang startup screen instead of the ford logo :lol: I'm finally getting around to replacing the media hub with a plain Jane USB port. I wish there was a way to disable the nag screen as I don't have a crapple phone so ge...

Re: Is there a cold weather charge reduction?

There's a reason it is called the guess-o-meter. It has nothing to do with your battery capacity and everything to do with your driving habits, climate control usage, etc. Also as we get in to winter you will lose a kWh or two battery capacity simply because the battery is cold. This capacity comes ...

Re: Cabin Heater has stopped heating

You can't do much with forscan and just a phone. you really need a laptop for forscan unless you just want to use it as gauges. Unfortunately the only way to know if your battery is leaking is to take it apart or if it's leaking bad enough to be dripping it will be obvious. Hate to be the bearer of ...

Re: Covering up bottom grille

I do this every fall, I do it to keep as much salt out as possible. I suppose it helps aero a bit in theory. Never had any issues with anything getting hot. It was up into the upper 80's this past spring before I took it off. There's very little heat that needs to be dissipated. I'd imagine it's onl...

Re: Value Charge Not Working

To make things easier I would look for an extension cord or short adapter cord to hack up. That way you only have one end to install. I bought this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S2P6HG6/ and this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007HFT034 I also have NEMA 6-50 for home charging and needed t...

Re: 2012 Died And I Owe Thousands On It

Financed it in February and loved the car. The SSN warning came on and the dealer just called. It is out of warrant and the battery is trashed. Waiting for them to call with whatever "buy back" options I may have. Not sure I ever want another Ford so I may just need to eat the $6k loan and save up ...

Battery cell technical information???

I'm looking for information on the cells used in the FFE with the intent of evaluating the feasibility of rebuilding a FFE battery, possibly with higher energy density cells. If anyone knows where I can find information on the LG cell models used in the FFE packs and/or similar sized cells from othe...
