Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

Yep, I've seen this type stuff from Ford before on warranty claims. My truck had a turbo go under warranty. The cause of the failure was actually the exhaust manifold cracked. Ford refused to cover the exhaust manifold (which feeds the turbo), on what was basically a new truck. Raised a huge stink ...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

Yep hear ya on the cost. And speaking of cost.....I heard back from the dealer today on my car. Looks like part of the wiring harness that goes from the charging port to the battery is bad and has to be replaced. Ford is claiming this is not under warranty and the dealer wants $1300 for parts and l...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

New Battery would be awesome! Oh please let the bad connection be internal to the battery...... Meanwhile I wait....and drive the rental base model Fiesta they gave me. Man that thing is a tiny tin box. So Carbuff, are you going to get another electric car? If so which one? There are a lot of inter...

Re: Car will not start

You can always buy a beater and put an order in for a TM3 or wait for the e-Plus Leaf. There's always the Bolt you could get now. Oh, I picked up a beater a few weeks ago when I felt a quick end might be in sight. Ive now got a 07 V8 jeep commander. 12 mpg, 4wd goodness. LOL. The polar opposite of ...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

wow carbuff! Glad the dealer stepped up and did the right thing. But still troubling they couldn't fix the car and make it right. Got a msg from the service manager on my car today. Sounds like they are going through the wiring harness looking for possible bad connections. Some how I'm not encourag...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

I dont think its going back to ford. Its property of the dealer now. Either it will get wholesaled out or perhaps they will keep it as a dealer car and wait for the battery to go bad and have it replaced by ford. My guess is its going to the middle east. LOL.

Re: Car will not start

Actually, someone local on craigslist is selling a leaf for fairly cheap. Seems like a shame to let my 30 amp charger go to waste. LOL. No matter how cheap used Leafs are I don't think I'd buy one...the styling is just too, you know, and I'd be constantly worrying about battery fade. I'm very happy...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

Well, my car will not be fixed or repaired. Wholesaled or crushed is my guess. I get paid off today. Kudos to the dealership for doing the right thing when Ford would not. Im out a few bucks but a lawyer would not be free either. Still getting a decent check. Ill continue to monitor and post occasio...

Re: Car will not start

Carbuff IANAL but it sure sounds like you have a water tight case for breach of warranty. If successful I would think that means you get lawyer fees from ford, plus punitive damages then you can take all that money and put it toward a Tesla Model 3. Be finally done with Ford. Actually, someone loca...
