Re: Power Steering Problem

I have done this many times myself. If you do not press hard enough on the brake pedal, when powering on the vehicle, it will not "start".. If you shift into reverse or drive, the vehicle will just roll a little, without power steering. This happens because I do things so fast, I might get them out ...

Re: 12v battery keeps draining daily - what are the biggest culprits?

First off, how is the battery recharging daily, and how do you know it is draining? Is that the original battery? If so, you probably should replace it. If the battery is fairly new, try removing fuse F1 (I believe) the fuse for the TCU. If that stops the daily drain, then there is a firmware update...

Re: Lateral Link Rear - Sound over bumps.

I just looked at the service manual. For the rear suspension, none of the procedures to service links or anything with the rear suspension stated to remove the battery pack.
Sounds like somebody wants to make extra money.

Re: Better 12V battery option?

So why not a deep cycle battery? Doesn't have to be Lithium based. Aren't those supposed to be able to go flat repeatedly? And I thought pulling fuse 3 stops the TCU from draining the battery? Also, didn't Ford release a firmware update to fix the TCU draining the battery problem? Considering the ne...

Re: New to me 2013 FFE

Using one of those vacuum coolant bleeders works pretty good to pull all of the air out of the cooling loops. Just gotta make sure the coolant does not get drawn up into the bleeder. If you use Forscan to control the coolant pump speeds and valve positions, keep in mind that arbitrarily setting the ...

Re: New to me 2013 FFE

Hey there Steve, Welcome to the club. I see you are jumping in with both feet to do diagnostics. If you haven't downloaded it yet, get the service manual from the link I posted a while back. Here: http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4921&p=32331 Good move to pull fuse #3, (if I...

Re: humming noise

I dont know where you are located, but a good independent shop that specializes in hybrids might be better than the dealer. At least they would be knowledgeable of electric drivetrains.

Re: humming noise

I am guessing that is 165 kilometers range? A 2017, 2018 should get that range in mild weather. In slightly warmer weather, the range will increase, but any use of the A/C will quickly negate that. Cooler weather and use of the heater could bring the range down to 140. There are some basic means of ...

Re: Hello, should I return my car?

Congrats, and thanks for keeping it "in the family".
The 2017 and 2018 with the greater range and DC fast charging make a great car better.

Guess you will have to change your moniker, eh? (onlybimmers)
