Re: No heat.

Here is a pretty detailed description of the cooling system: Lesson 3 Cooling system (pdf) Thank you, that is cool (warm?). Can we get to others? That title "Lesson 3 ..." leads to wondering what other lessons are available, and where. (Looks like "slides" from a power-point presentation, to accomp...

Re: Cabin preheat via remote start blows cold air...

[...] Pull the plug and it shuts down. Nice and warm. Off-topic, but just checking: I hope you squeeze the little lever on top of the connector and pause for a second (or so), to let the EVSE turn its power off before you "pull the plug". That avoids dragging the contacts while drawing heavy curren...

Re: New Recall - 3G modem?

Recall for modem work (15N04) done quickly enough, no problem seen since. Took about 5 hours, drop-off to call "come get it." Link from home computer still works fine; no difference noted from old, so far.

Re: New Recall - 3G modem?

The dealer said I needed to drop the car off to assess which modem it needed, then drop it off again later when the modem arrived. I took it in for the first appointment and the service rep filled out all the drop off paperwork, then said I didn't have to drop off the car, he'd order the part, and ...

Re: New Recall - 3G modem?

Call to local Ford service place today led to appointment, + word that need the car for TWO DAYS, as must see my [radio?] to get numbers from it, before can order the parts.
Make sense to you?? (At least he said would give me a free loaner while they have my car.)

Re: 230vac EV Home Charger blowing fuses

Doubt that pulling on any wire could cause more current flow; might cause higher resistance (so Less current), OR conceivably move a loose strand to short to an adjacent conductor (?). What is rating of the EVSE? Original fuse should be a bit above that rating. Ford's 120 V "charger" normally runs q...

OR ?) What caused the SSN? What should keep it from happening again? Are you in a part of out country th...

Re: 2017 Focus electric 100-Mile Range, DC Fast Charging

I will say this though, SDG&E has changed things up a bit. [...]That was fine as I'd plug it in around 10pm, not get hit with the other tier charges and [...] I know SDG&E cut some tiers and increased rates, [...] They are also going after Solar too, so some of these utility companies are not huge ...
