What % of people on here do we guess have had shut down prob

Fri Nov 15, 2013 8:01 pm

Just signed a 3 year lease and knew a little about the shut down errors but just found the the topic area http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=15 its a bit scary and concerns me, as it should. Have been excited about going to get the car this Sunday but now want to have the recall work done before I pick the car up. The link to the web page to check your vin is here :shock:

The number of people who have HAD "Stop Safely Now" (SSN) errors are between one and two percent.

It is hard to say how many unless Ford released the data. I think any car had the potential to do it regardless whether it has or not. My car was fine until last month. Fortuneately, the fix from Ford came out a week later. I don't want to Jinx anything, so knock on wood, but I haven't heard of anyone having the problem after performing the update.

For a while I was tracking the reported SSN errors here and on Ford's forum in a spreadsheet (you can still see it in the thread but I haven't updated it in a while). At the time it appeared that the number was something like 2% - 3% (a little higher than unplugged estimate).

Those numbers are for the SSN's reported here but my estimate may be a bit high (and unplugged's more accurate) because:
  • - There would be many people who DON'T get the SSN issue not on here (they are happy)
    - The majority of people who get SSN Google the error which drives them here (increasing the % here)
Having said all that there are people with tens of thousands of miles on their FFE who never got a SSN error.

No issues here, until I plugged in the Progressive Snapshot device. Then lots of shut downs. Unplug the Snapshot, no issues. 5200 miles in.

With a gas powered car you have to worry about getting bad gas. This could cause a perfectly good running car to stall out unexpectantly. With the FFE i have never heard of the car stalling out because of bad electrons.

I copied that spreadsheet, then updated it some into October, based on what I read in blogs (like right here).
My count was up to 50 cases, with a fair amount of detail, but cannot say it is complete (or error-free).

Thanks for the responses guys , even the yelling correctional response about shut down error.....oops i mean " HAD "Stop Safely Now" (SSN)". The car was flashed before I picked it up with the updates, now i just have to learn to live with range anxiety. On my trip from Seattle to Bellingham Wa. I stopped in Burlington for a charge and there was a leaf already there charging. Although I already new about and chose the FFE , the CHADeMo made me very Jealous and think about my choice of EV. Ultimately i chose the ffe for the driving experience and the technologically advance interior, the lease takes into account the advances that will take place over the next 3 years. The super charged NSX takes care of my days off of ffe

CHADeMo

What would it take for an FFE to be upgraded to a CHADeMo?
