Re: Got a wrench today

Speculating because I don't know for sure but I would think they would be integrated into the battery pack. You can here them clicking/clunking when you power on/off the car and the sound is coming from the battery area. If they're not in the battery I'd be surprised because there isn't much room back there for anything other than the battery. I would think they would be relatively easy to replace. If ford was smart they would have designed it so they can be replaced without having to remove the battery but I'm not too optimistic about that.

I got the wrench yesterday on my 2013. My wife had the car, she parked it into the garage, and when I came home from work, the wrench was off but I hooked up ForScan and got a bunch of codes:

P0C91 Hybrid/EV Battery Temperature Sensor J Intermittent/Erratic
P0C8C Hybrid/EV Battery Temperature Sensor I Intermittent/Erratic
P0AC9 Hybrid/EV Battery Temperature Sensor B Intermittent/Erratic
P0B6A Hybrid/EV Battery Voltage Sense J Circuit Low
P0B65 Hybrid/EV Battery Voltage Sense I Circuit Low
P0B51 Hybrid/EV Battery Voltage Sense E Circuit Low
P0AA6 Hybrid/EV Battery Voltage System Isolation Fault

Today, as she drove it home again, the wrench came back on.
I will call the Dealer ASAP.

Did you get yours fixed, Triangles? what was the problem/solution?

Thanks

That P0AA6 one was the one that did in my 2013. They couldnt make it go away and said it wasnt safe to drive with it, so that was the end of the road for it.

Follow up to my Yellow Wrench.

A few days of driving, with the Yellow Wrench coming on and off, came back to the car one day after work, and the SSN was there, and the car, of course wouldn’t move. Towed to the dealer.
A few days of diagnosis, and today I get a call from the service advisor, that coolant is leaking in the HV battery and Ford has authorized its replacement. The Advisor was in awe that the cost for that repair will be $33K. They will follow up tomorrow with an eta on the battery shipment.

So I will probably be getting a 33.5 KWH battery?

Yes, congrats. I should have squirted some coolant into my battery.
