Re: Focus Electric won't start

Based on this thread and another on the MyFordMobile.com, we are now at 3 cars out of ~150 sold that have reported this issue. Perhaps it's a catch-all error for any problems in the electric drive equipment but it seems like a high number to me.

Re: What are you using for a charging station?

I'm using the Schneider EVSE unit and it works very well except for some strangeness when I use Value Charging. Can't tell if it's a Ford issue or a compatibility issue with the Schneider. When I'm setup to Value Charge beginning at midnight and simply plug in the EVSE, what I see happening is this:...

Re: Dead 12V battery

Thanks for detailing your debugging steps. There aren't very many of us FFE owners and this information is really valuable. I believe there is a DC/DC charger that charges the 12V battery from the main battery, so I'm surprised the 12V would go flat. Was your main battery flat? Perhaps this charger ...

Re: Under Reported Mileage on myfordmobile.com

Not sure if it will help, but I sent an email to myfordmobile.com support to request they use 1 or 2 more significant digits instead of integers for their storage and calculation.

Re: Charging Port Door Opens Randomly

I guess I was considering the ineffective latch mechanism as a likely manufacturing problem that could be corrected by replacing the door or the port latch.

Re: Charging Port Door Opens Randomly

I'm not having this problem, although the plastic design doesn't give me the greatest confidence that I won't in the future. I would consider a trip to the dealer for a replacement part.

Re: Under Reported Mileage on myfordmobile.com

It appears to be tied to the Key Personalization feature. I think I had 11 Miles on the other key when I finally started using my key. The Info window next to my total miles says this: This is your personal odometer. It will not match the odometer in the vehicle, rather a total of your trip miles. T...

Re: Under Reported Mileage on myfordmobile.com

I've been using both the MyFordMobile app on iPhone and myfordmobile.com website and have noticed that they truncate/round a number of reported measurements. I haven't looked at the details as much as you but will start doing that. I just compared my odometer reading to MyFordMobile app: 1412.2 Odom...

Re: Is the heater/defroster a range killer?

Also note that Ford uses the MyFordMobile App/website to allow you to setup "GO Times" where the car is prepared for use while still on the charger. This means heating or cooling to your desired temperature at the time you designate you want to leave. This reduces the power required from the battery...
