Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

Hybridbear Bluetooth pairing is a one-time thing, The OBDLink will be powered up enough for pairing once it is plugged in (whether the FFE is powered up or not). Assure that it is paired (look in the Device Manager,..). FORScan won't try to do anything with the OBDLink until you hit its "connect" bu...

Re: Range/Capacity Test

I'm going to recalibrate the SOC
-I assume that's a service function within the IDS (?).
I've also seen discrepancies: The last time that I ran to "Stop Safely Now", I found that it occurred precisely when BATT_TO_EMPTY_ESTIM hit zero-- but the displayed SOC still read 4%.

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

redcelt007 or whomever: I'm trying to track down a problem. If/when you have a chance, could you record the following parameters from the BECM on a full charge. -No hurry, I'm heading out of town (away from my Focus) for a week or two: H_BATT_CHAR BAT_TO_EMPTY_ESTIM BAT_PACK_VOLT HEV_BAT_MIN_V HEV_B...

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

On the Fusion Hybrid/Energi models the battery inlet temp is the temp of the air being pulled across the battery by the fans to cool/warm it. -I wasn't aware of any air-cooling of the Focus battery packs, but the numbers that I'm seeing for BAT_IN_COOLTEMP sure make more sense as air temperatures -...

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

Temperatures from FORScan - I've only spot checked the available temperatures so far. It looks like I'll need to see more extremes in temperatures before I can make sense out of any but the most basic parameters. Low priority for now; I'll revisit these later. AVERTEMP -Average Temperature Range Am...

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

I have been using the 'uncovered' port since it is more convenient not to have that door hanging down. Since you brought it up, I just went out and checked the port behind the door - works fine - I don't see any difference.

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

Forscan: I started with the 2.1.18 beta and as of last week have been using 2.1.19 beta; no problems with either. Bluetooth problem? Does the obdlink-mx show up as being paired to your computer? Which com port? ...

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

Right- Michael originally posited the 8%-90% numbers and my original notepad data collection at 10% intervals over most of the range confirmed that those numbers were close. Looking at a 1 kWh burn test that I logged later--Linear regression gives me a slope corresponding to 81.96%; the intercept is...

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

FORScan Parameters of Interest: BECM - Battery Energy Control Module Name - FORScan Description (the use of "Hybrid" simply refers to the HV battery) H_BATT_CHAR -Hybrid Battery State of Charge Full range SOC (state of charge) which apparently should be equivalent to Dead-to-23kWh on a new battery. ...
