Re: Clunk in Transfer Case (Video)

Not sure how it is with the FFE but on my Escort ZX2 there was a little clip in the splines of the half shaft that held it into the transmission. Not sure how it's held in on the FFE. Definitely should not be able to freely move it in and out of the TCM that much. From your video it just looked like...

Re: 12 Volt Lithium Battery from Ohmmu

It's not quite $100 cheaper than what I paid for mine.

I think the OHMMU ones can be used to start an ICE where these cheaper ones can't put out more than 50A. So there's that I guess...

Re: Battery Cooling Redux - It's Over

Glad you figured it out. I'll have to tuck this tidbit away for future reference and hope I never need it :)

Thanks for sharing!

Re: New Owner, Dealing with Inherited Key Situation

I didn't think forscan supported PATS for the MK3 focus??? Well it has been several years I guess they finally added that functionality. I ended up buying a 3rd used fob off fleabay. When my car was in for my 12V issues they had to reset everything and asked for all my fobs to reprogram the car to u...

Re: 2012-2014 FFE Battery Life

aswilliams131. Financially I think you made the right choice. It would be a different story if they had made hundreds of thousands of these cars and you could readily find salvage parts to fix them but they made less than 10K of these cars in all the years of production.

Re: 12 Volt Lithium Battery from Ohmmu

There are far cheaper options out there. I bought one similar to this a year ago. https://www.amazon.com/Lithium-phosphate-Rechargeable-Off-Grid-Applications/dp/B08FJ44ZBP The brand on mine was moseworth and doesn't appear to be on amazon anymore. it has a 50A rated BMS that will cut power to protec...

Re: Reminder of why EVs can be awesome to own

In Ohio 1 year is about $200 more than your 2 year registration but for 1 year. Yeah the $200 annual EV tax blows.

Re: Proactive upper battery back coolant bypass? Opinions

Yeah what Anti Climax said... You could also use one of those sump pump failure alarms that goes off when it detects water. Personally I keep an occasional eye on the fluid level in my coolant reservoir. I will likely watch it like a hawk after my warranty expires next winter. If you live in a very ...

Re: Proud New Owners

Welcome CarlPace! First a couple of things. The battery thermal management (TMS) is only functional when the car is on or plugged into L2 (240V). At least here in Ohio a car interior can easily get 130F+ in the summer sun. Since the upper pack is partially in the car that means the battery can be ex...

Re: When to say goodbye

Or the other way to look at it is that you got your purchase value out of your car for 8 years. Everything beyond 8 years is a free bonus until it dies. I intend to keep my '14 FFE until it's eventual death. I view every day past the my 8 year warranty that expires in November as a bonus. The car ha...
