NOISY while charging 2017 FFE

Thu Jan 31, 2019 7:38 pm

NOISY while charging:

I have a 2017 Ford Focus Electric and live in SE Michigan.. There is loud hum type noise sometimes while charging on 110V; at other times it is totally quiet.

This car is about 1/2 way through a 3 year lease. Prior to this I had a 2014 Ford Focus Electric that did not exhibit this loud noise.

Comments appreciated, thanks

The battery heater sounds like a distant leaf blower. I never noticed it until my 3rd winter.

I just noticed it on my car today too. Mind you its -8 out today, which normally its above freezing here in Vancouver, but it made the noise (funny enough)
on my level 1 charger, level 2 charger, and even at the level 3 DCFC charger.... I honestly don't recall it ever making that noise in my 1 year history of owning the car...
