Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

Sorry you all have had issues with your AC. Both my 2015 and 2017 FFE's could be used to store meat in the 100+ degree summer days.

Well, anyone looking for a parts car, our 2012 is being auctioned off. It was reporting 77% battery until a day or so ago when the 12v battery died.

I'm shocked the airbags didn't go off.

Re: Registration / License Plate Cost

Yep, in VA it costs me more in the extra EV fee than it does for the electricity to run the car.

Re: Sync 3 questions.

That is extremely interesting that you get climate controls using the 2018 Escape APIM.

Wonder if we can tweak the FFE APIM to get them.

Re: Sync 3 questions.

No, on the FFE the climate controls do not show up on Sync 3 (as they do in other Fords)

Trying to recall, I think some places sell "kits" to allow a Sync 2 to 3 upgrade.

Re: HV Battery Issues - Out of Warranty

If you're out of warranty by only 4 months, call Ford yourself. I had a PT Cruiser that was just out of warranty. Power steering pump started leaking. Was going to be $1500 to repair. Called Chrysler, they said you pay $150, we'll pay the rest, and they did.

Can't hurt.

Re: EV not charging (2015 FFE)

Hmmm, try setting up a value charge profile and then setting it to value charge.

Couldn't hurt to see what happens.

Re: Remote start during long term parking for 12v

The remote system will shut down (you won't be able to start it) if the car isn't communicated with for a few days (3 I think???). When I'm gone on a long trip, I just refresh the status on the main page of the app and that does the trick. I don't remote start it. Never had any issues with the batte...

Sounds like it's the bunny hop.

You'll find other posts on it.
