Re: Various public charging networks

Blink and ChargePoint are most common in Washington State. In general, I've found Blink units to be poorly maintained; I've never returned to a unit that I knew was out of order due to vandalism or other damage and found it has been repaired. Fortunately Blink stations are almost always are installe...

Re: How long does the screen stay on ?

After a handful of short trips, I can report that the main MFT screen switches to the "White/Ford Logo" shutdown mode immediately when I open the door after shutting off the vehicle, and turns off promptly. The change in behavior seems to correlate with a Master Reset and then a reconnection of the ...

Re: How long does the screen stay on ?

Today I went through the process of re-registering the FFE with MyFordMobile, since the Master Reset evidently cancels the registration of the car with MyFordMobile. And tonight when I got home.... the screen turned off right away, just like it used to. The one drive I performed this afternoon (whic...

Re: Plug door randomly opening?

I concur; most of the open-charge-door incidents are certainly because of forgetfulness and they have become less frequent the longer I've had the car.

Yes, it can pop open from jarring on the road, but I agree that it is most secure when you close it as intended.

Re: Is ford finally getting serious about EVs?

I took the time to watch that interview with Yahoo Finance very carefully and transcribe the whole thing over on reddit.com/r/electricvehicles. And my impression is the exact opposite of every article I've read about the interview. Mark Fields did not say that Ford is going to make an "electric car ...

Re: How long does the screen stay on ?

Thanks for the method suggestion, NightHawk. I followed exactly that procedure but the display stayed on. During my tests I even saw the "MyFord Mobile is active... to provide GPS navigation" message box show up, even after the car had been turned off and locked. I just did a Master Reset. The syste...

Re: What does my FFE use wifi for?

Thanks for those clarifications and further reading !

My assumptions about why there were both Client and Access Point modes were clearly wrong, and the icons for WiFi/WiFi and WiFi/Cellular on the configuration screen make more sense now.

Re: How long does the screen stay on ?

FordETIS shows my build date as "09.07.2014", which I think must be Date/Month/Year format because the door sticker says "07/14". I have three MyFord Touch related symptoms going on: 1. Twice, the car has been found to be playing the FM radio at high volume after having been shut off and locked for ...

Re: How long does the screen stay on ?

When this happens to you, do the dash displays and speedometer also stay on? Or, it is just the center MFT display? Thanks for the sincere replies; I was concerned that I had somehow not mastered technology like "turn on and off". The dash displays and speedometer turn off the way I expect them to;...

How long does the screen stay on ?

Maybe it's just because I've been driving home in the dark, but I've noticed that my center console touchscreen (MyFordTouch, right ?) stays on for some time after I shut the car off. I've walked away and come back 5-10 minutes later and seen it still on, but never overnight. I haven't checked other...
