Power Flow

Sat Feb 04, 2017 9:36 am

I noticed that my car doesn't have a power flow diagram on the sync screen.

I did some searching around and I think I saw somewhere that Ford maybe stopped the power flow diagram?

What's weird is I didn't even know it was a thing until I started searching around for another FFE (Potentially for a friend that likes the car) and I'm seeing the diagram shown on 13's and 14's on ebay motors/carmax/etc. Please see a picture I found from another one that was for sale.

Does anyone else have this or any information on it? Here's a picture I found off the ebay:

Thank you!

What year is your FFE? If it has Sync 3 the screen may be on a different menu (and depending on which version of Sync 3 as they moved some stuff around).

Mine is a '13. I believe I have sync 2. What I'm seeing looks identical to mine except the power flow.

My '13 always showed the power flow screen, regardless of how many updates I put on it.

By chance, is there a setting somewhere to turn that off or on? I feel like I've gone through every menu.

Not that I'm aware of. Note that I don't have the FFE anymore: turned it in at the end of the lease.

So, on yours, when you press the "Leaf" button at the bottom of the screen (right next to the "Home" button) what items does the menu at the left contain?

Normally, it contains:

Settings
Power


But, yours is just:

Settings

Or what?

That is your problem: I'd suggest you take it to a dealer and see if they can perform a sync update for you.

For some reason your Sync system doesn't think you have an FFE.

When I bought my Certified Pre Owned 2013, I did not have the LEAF icon as well. I knew about it, because I had it on my 2013 C-Max Energi. As it turned out, it still had SYNC version 3.1.3 loaded. The info on owner.ford.com showed this was the current version, but I knew better. After some discussion with the service department, and some online messaging with the IVT Team on http://fordsyncforum.com/, they were able to update me to v3.8, which was the most current, and gave me all of the proper "plug-in" features of SYNC as well as other updated tweaks, including SiriEyes.
Try a call to your dealer first.
