On the phone with my local ford dealership. So far he has told me that no parts are necessary and that it is all software related. He said the longest procedure is an hr and a half and the shortest is 30mins. He said the most time needed is about 2hrs because of paper work etc. He then retracted and said that some modification by applying electrical grease to harness to the high voltage interlock. The harness also needs to be separated from a different part of the harness.
The reason there is a fluctuation in time is because it is conditional. The conditions will be based on a checklist they have, so 30 minutes is the shortest time it will take a tech and an hr and half is the longest if everything on the list needs to be done. I believe he said there will be a software update as well. Hopefully for some reason this update will allow for better battery performance
So to answer every ones question, there is no physical parts that need to be added.
For vehicles built before May 19, 2014
If the high voltage harness connecting to the TCM is currently in two seperate convolutes, then yes, nothing physical is required. If you have both conductors in the same convolute, parts are required. They consist of abrasion sleeves (x2), terminal springs (x4), and HVIL shunt (x1) with electrical grease. After completion, reprogram modules. If they are already in individual convolute, only module reprogramming is required.
Vehicles build after May 19, 2014
Apply electrical grease to the HVIL shunt. Reprogram modules.
Estimated time given for both, 0.5 to 1.1 hours. 1 day car rental is pre-aproved. Owner notifications begin week of January 25, 2016. Applies to all vehicles. Program in effect through December 31, 2016. No mileage limit for program. Affects Focus Electrics built September 15, 2011 through August 15, 2014. Changes must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner. All of the parts for the harness upgrade are in Part Number: CM5Z-15K607-A.
