Re: myford app subscription

My start of service date was June of 2017 and my ford mobile still works. My guess would be that Ford would be more interested in the car's data than to let the service expire.

So you now have 100+ miles of range on your pre-2017 FFE?
Yes. Depending on how I drive, I can get more than that. Usable battery capacity is 30KWh as determined by the tripometer. So my 2012 has the capacity of a 2017.

Re: Coolant bypass valve?

There are 3 coolant loops. One that does the on-board charger, one that does the motor, and one that does the cabin heater. There are 3 bypass valves...one for each loop as well as a pump. The car can configure the 3 loops into one loop for when you replace your coolant and need to purge the air out...

Re: Ford Parts HVB Price Increase

You probably can't get the old battery anymore. I just had mine replaced under warranty and it is the new battery. I'm sure Ford would have installed the old battery if they had one to use. So you had an older smaller battery and replaced it with bigger ? good deal what happened to your battery? I ...

Re: 12V Battery Replaced

Just to follow up, the battery was dead. I thought it would be pro-rated since it was replaced by Ford while under the 36mo warranty 37 months ago, but no, they don't. They only pro-rate if you bought it. So if it died a month earlier, they'd have replaced it for free. Turns out this battery is an o...

Re: OBDII data for LVB (12V battery)

Using Forscan and the OBDII reader, there is a value for a set voltage for charging the 12V battery. I've seen it at different values, but I don't know what the intent would be to change it. I think that the DC-DC is there to charge the 12V battery; however, it will supply current for the 12V device...

Re: 12 volt battery

I believe the 12V battery is charged when the car is actively charging the High Voltage Battery and when the Car is on. I had the radio of my car stay on one time and I figured out which fuse it is and pulled it. After putting the fuse back in, the radio behaved as it should.

Re: 2017 FFE Signature Lighting with Dedicated DRLs

On my 2012 Focus, there is no real DRL. If you move the switch all the way to the right, lighting is automatic and in the daylight, no lights are on. One click to the left, it will turn the headlights on. One more click to the left and just the "eyebrow" over the headlight will be on. Some people li...

Re: Dead 12V battery then traction control freaks out

Went to leave work today and the battery was dead. Didn't have a meter to check it, but this happened in the morning about a week ago and I measured 7v. I was thinking then and again today that I might have some phantom drawl somewhere, but I may have been mistaken. I noticed the sticker on the side...
