Re: Acceptable disconnect

Well some cars won't let you do that at all--they lock the cable to the car. You'll get tons of opinions here on that. So far I haven't been in a situation where I needed a charge that bad (my FFE didn't have a fast charge and I never encountered the situation with Level 2. On the Bolt its range is ...

Re: Sync reboot and no propulsion

Yup the FFE is very particular about starting up. You can't just hop in, start it, and go--it doesn't like that at all. Typically my procedure was: Open door, get in Foot on brake Press start Close door Keep foot on brake buckle up Adjust radio, etc. Shift to D or R You need to give it that extra be...

Re: SKL Motorworks advertising a FFE Performance Chip

Considering it looks like that modifies either the throttle position or the MAF sensor reading I doubt that would work with the FFE as it has neither.

Re: Key In Fob

When the 12V battery dies you wouldn't be able to get in the car without using the key as everything is electric.

Re: Go time - not working?

Well "modem update" could very well have been the 2G to 3G update; or it could have been a software update. You don't really know. My lease was up right around the 2G -> 3G transition. As such my 2013 FFE had a 2G modem in it and my 2016 C-Max had a 3G modem in it. Not sure about the longevity of th...

Wasn't an "issue" (e.g. something wrong with the modem) it was the fact that AT&T decommissioned the 2G network and thus the cars couldn't talk to the server anymore unless they were upgraded to 3G.

Re: EVSE Mounting Ideas

Short cords? My Bosch/SPX EVSE (ironically originally sold for the Volt but I've used it for my FFE, C-Max, and now Bolt) has a 20ft cord on it, my Clipper Creek EVSE also has a 20ish ft cord, ok my Juicebox has only about a 3ft cord. Or do you mean the other cord? The input cord? ah yeah they all h...

Re: charging rates

Maybe Chargepoint is wrong, but it shows that my newly installed home EVSE is pulling 6.98 kW (though it shows 23 miles added in an hour (real time). I thought it peaked at 6.6 kW. I'm running it out of a Nema 6-50 with a 60A breaker. Its 6.6kW into the battery, there are losses in the EVSE, and th...

Re: Performance Upgrade Complete

Funny, as soon as I bought my FFE I was very tempted to stick some ST badges on it. Only because if you know what ST means, you know that my Electric isn't one. If you cant tell the difference, you most likely have no idea what those letters mean. Blasphemy? Not at all. I once raced an ST with my F...

Re: New to me '13 FEE

Where are you located? Its possible those are already taken (here in Michigan the DMV has a website that you can check to see if a personalized plate is already taken).

I had one on my FFE (Ford Focus Electric): ZZZT Yeah I know "what?" sound it out--electricity ;)
