I have an appointment for later today to drop the car off. The car gave me the "Stop safely now" warning today too. Luckily I was turning right when the green light went out. I just turned the car off and on a few times and it rebooted lol. I think ill start carrying a starter unit in my car from now on. I usually keep a cheap DMM with me to check voltage...but that accessory port one has to be nice so you can watch the voltage while driving.NightHawk wrote:Yes try to get that TSB performed that should include a firmware update to fix the 12v battery issue.
I had 12v battery issues for the first few months I had my 2014 FFE, but after the update I've never had any more 12v battery problems - for almost 2 years since then!
Though I do have a 12v battery charger in my garage for emergencies, also a 12v lithum-ion starter unit in the car, and a 12v accessory port voltage display unit just to be safe!
Ill keep you guys updated for sure. I know the TSB mentions some E Focus may experience the SSN as well as a low state of charge on the 12v battery. I am curious on what they find.triangles wrote:If you got a SSN you have a problem other than your 12V battery. When the car is on, it is powering all the 12V systems thru the DC-DC converter which includes charging the 12V battery back up. Think of the DC-DC converter being the equivalent of an alternator on an ICE car. There could be a problem with the DC-DC converter cutting out but that is a bit above my head as I do not know if that would even trigger a SSN. However I do know that damaged HV cables or their connectors can trigger a SSN. Either way let us know what they find.
It wasn't going to cost anything because it was covered under the powertrain warranty. But since the pcm update was already there they didn't want to do anything else without me paying for a diag.triangles wrote:WTF is the dealer charging you for a warranty repair?
I'd check out another dealer if you can or ask to speak to a different service advisor or the service manager.Krisverde wrote:It wasn't going to cost anything because it was covered under the powertrain warranty.
