Tested OEM EVSE and it appears to do L2 Charging fine….

Long story short, I found myself in a position where I have 3 different OEM EVSE's that are all capable of running at 220v. They came from a 2012 Ford Focus Electric, 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and a 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Must mention that the Ford Focus Electric had a recall on the EVSE and or...

Re: 2012 Bleeding Brakes and Coolant Flush?

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.

Re: 2012 Bleeding Brakes and Coolant Flush?

Well, this may be taken care of. My daughter decided to do some "enhancements" including bending the frame. At the collision shop, they stated prognosis is not good....

Re: 2012 Bleeding Brakes and Coolant Flush?

Interesting, I suppose what you are saying is that brake fluid is a lifetime fluid? Playing the devil's advocate, isn't Lifetime generally described as 10 years so it should be changed at some point? Don't get me wrong, I don't want to do unneeded work if I don't have to. Brakes feels fine, only hav...

Re: 2012 Bleeding Brakes and Coolant Flush?

Yeah, I read the Shop Manual, that is where I got the information that you need to plug a computer up to have it open 3 valves and turn on the coolant pump while cycling out the old coolant.

2012 Bleeding Brakes and Coolant Flush?

We have owned this 2012 FFE for about 3-4 years now and have really done 0 maintenance to it (pop the hood and see there is coolant is where it needs to be and rotate the tires). Was looking at bleeding the brakes and swapping the coolant. Bleeding the brakes looks pretty standard with a pressure bl...

Re: How to have start charging even though set to "Value Cha

Thanks, confirming what I have been seeing.

The app seems to work pretty good to change it, I just have to remember to put it back.

How to have start charging even though set to "Value Charge"

Is there a way to have the Ford Focus Electric start charging immediately even though it is set to "Value Charge"? I read the manual and I couldn't find anything. On our Chrysler Pacifica PHEV, if it is set to start charging at 2AM, if you plug in, unplug, and plug back in, it will start charging ri...
