Re: LED tail lamps or not?

I know you are referring to the 2013 FFE, however, my 2012 does in fact have LED acccents on the headlamps and taillamps..... I gather from the posts there have been several features removed from the 2013 model - autosensing wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror, garage door opener in visor, and now...

Re: Humming sound when starting the car (even not plugin)

Nate - Way to go on plus 20 miles in your commute. First time out and made it!! :D Your BTW is yes, you do have to reset the trip meter each trip to be able to monitor your current, in route, kWh usage. Their are lots of tricks to use when driving to enhance your mileage. I'll tell you my story. I d...

Re: Humming sound when starting the car (even not plugin)

:D Have fun!

Naterey, The number of miles on the battery is a factor of your last driving efficiency. In the Summer I have had 90 miles show up on the gauge. Start driving, you'll get it.....

Re: Humming sound when starting the car (even not plugin)

But I think FE has 23 Kwh battery. Why does your battery charge to 19.5 Kwh only? (and how do you know that number?) I am not an engineer! But, like you suggested we are all into kWh and the math. Someone smarter then I, a nuclear engineer, reversed the math on the enhanced trip gauge and came up w...

I did send my Ford EVSE to EVSE upgrade and they told me the Ford unit was not worth upgrading. The gauge wiring was t...

Re: Humming sound when starting the car (even not plugin)

I need to drive 60 miles round trip. There is no 120V outlet or "free" charging station at my work place. That's why I am a little concerned about the budgeted miles showing in the dashboard. At 32 degrees 60 miles is cutting it close. Also, if you are home charging @ 120v then it will take all nig...

Re: Technical Service Bulletin TSB 12-8-20

When I bought a 2013 FFE on 31 Dec 2012, the dealer told me TSB 12-8-20 applies only to 2012 vehicles and the issue has already been handled in all 2013s. Mountaineer, You have been a busy blogger today. Good information on many topics. Thank you. During my 10,000 mile checkup I specifically reques...
