Re: TMS and Cold Weather

Preliminary battery temp readings. I finally found my ODBII dongle. It looks like with Forscan there is no battery temp sensor, I only found the battery coolant loop sensor which is what I'll refer to as battery temp. I also didn't see any parameter that indicates whether any of the 3 battery heater...

Re: LED's in Headlamps

Piracy, the easy choice!® :lol: In all seriousness windows is free. You can download the ISO from microsoft and the tools to put it on a thumb drive or burn it to a DVD if you like. The only drawback is you will have an annoying watermark on the screen until you register it (pay for it). If all you'...

Re: Winter Wheels

Careful, at least on this side of the pond Escort had 4x100 bolt pattern and focus up to 2012 had 4x108. I have some unknown volvo wheels 5x108, 15" diameter, unknown width (best guess is 6") Offset is slightly different, wheels sit slightly farther out. No appreciable handling difference. If anythi...

Re: TMS and Cold Weather

Correct TMS only works while plugged in or car is on. I don't know for sure but some say it has to be L2 and that TMS doesn't work with L1. Honestly I wouldn't worry about it. The battery weighs ~700lbs That's not going to cool off or heat up very quickly. The high around here for Wednesday is -5F a...

Re: See Manual - P0C4A:00-08 / 0CE0:00-08

That pump circulates the coolant that heats the battery pack and takes the heat away from the charger. I would be curious to see what that pump does when you plug in and the battery heaters kick in.

Re: PCM programming update

F that dealer. Never give them any more business. A SSN error should have been a warranty claim and they should have followed any FSAs and updated your modules under warranty. It would probably have taken less than 30 minutes with a laptop and IDS to update the modules. I suppose I could be wrong si...

Focccus: It's a super buggy Russian program. Be careful it may cause your car to brainwash you into voting for Trump.. LOL. I usually have to run it several times before it completes the read without errors. It basically just edits the car computers configuration file telling the computer what hardw...

Re: EVSE Recall mail

like kalel14 said. it's pretty much the same. There is just a thermistor in the plug now to detect heat due to a crappy recepticle or corrosion on your plug. This tells the unit to either throttle back or turn off if it detects heat. Not sure exactly what it does when it detects heat other than save...
