Re: Things new onwer should know?

I have installed a Schneider Level 2 charger. Very useful.... If you end up needing to use public charging, Blink and ChargePoint are two of the bigger networks. And getting an RFID card from them ahead of time will expedite things, as many sites begin billing to charge. Recargo.com and Plugshare.c...

Also it is possible that the 240V is on different pins on the plug from the 120V
AC power (120V or 240V) is supplied over same pins (contact #1 & #2 of J1772 connector).

Re: Can I use my 20a, 125v outlet with a charging station

So how does a level 2 charging station inform the car that more current is available? The 240 volt L2 EVSE installed in your garage generates a "Pilot Signal" that tells the car the maximum current draw available in amps. The on-board charger in the car then respects that maximum. The L1 charging c...

Re: The MyFord Mobile app

RESOLVED!!! Actually spoke to the Engineers over the MyFordMobile feature about the 'imbedded modem', 'TCU' etc. The modem communicates to the 'cloud' with help from AT&T. In a phone call they suggested I inspect fuse #1 ‘telemetry’ in the rear fuse block. I did; it was good (tested 0.055 ohms) and...

Re: Took delivery!

New proud owner of a FFE - as of last evening. I purchased it at Future Ford of Roseville - which was a positive experience. I phoned them on Tuesday and told them I wanted the leather seats and the White Platinum paint color. They said they had one arriving on Thursday which I could take home on F...

Re: What do you want to know about the Focus Electric?

What is behind the little plug in the bumper to the left of the grill? This is a guess as I did not find it in the Owners Manual. Some cars have a threaded hole in the bumper to insert a "Tow Hook" that would be used to winch car onto a flatbed tow. If so, cover will have a slot to pry off/open, bu...

Re: Road trip experiences

I'm confused by what's meant by 0 miles range left but 10 miles of surplus left. Aren't estimated miles all the same? - at least they are on the LEAF. From the Owners Manual; "Budget Text — Shows the distance to your next charge point and the surplus distance available, or your budget and status if...

Re: Road trip experiences

Just got back from Dad's, 76 miles each way (I-85 from Charlotte to Spartanburg)... ... Made it home at 4:45 PM and plugged in. In the first hour of charging since plugging in after the yellow warning light, I’ve picked up 35 miles. It reached 50%, 40 miles in 75 minutes. But it took until 10:30 PM...
