Re: Potential Focus Purchase

Yay it was dry! Those plugs are a pain to pull out and almost harder to push back in. Especially when it's cold and snowing. I did change the coolant this summer and have just recently used the heat for the first time since. I'm hoping the low coolant was just burping the air out of the heater loop....

Re: Potential Focus Purchase

LOL I was thinking electrical plugs, not drain plugs :lol:

On a more serious note, I just checked my coolant and it is low :shock: My warranty expires tomorrow. I think I'm checking my plugs tonight...

Re: No heat

I would first try to make sure all the air is purged from the heating loop. If you have a laptop you can manually force coolant pumps on and open the diverter valves. Just don't have the pumps on 100 or you may cause cavitation which will only create more problems. You can do this with forscan and a...

Re: Lifting Points

I use the crossmember in between the rear wheels for lifting the back. I have used the control arm right under the spring but that is super sketchy and I wouldn't recommend doing that. Not sure how to describe what I use for a lifting point in the front. but it's a significant frame piece. I don't u...

Re: Potential Focus Purchase

What plugs are you referring to? the battery is split in two. The lower pack is where the gas tank would be and the upper pack is between the rear wheels partially in the passenger compartment. Honestly I would avoid a used FFE unless you can afford to be buying a paperweight. They made so few there...

davideos,

I missed it over on the fb group. Glad you got it back up and running with a relatively simple fix.

Re: care for older battery

To get kWh on your trip meter you have to turn on "Enhanced trip meter" It is there in the menus for the left screen you just have to find it and enable it.

Re: new battery for Ford focus electric for 55 kWh

ivankovff, I don't but it looks like Hemia has what you are looking for. I have a 23 kWh 2014 FFE and if or when my battery dies, my FFE will be a project car that I try to build my own battery. My biggest problem will be that I have I have zero experience with CANbus and don't know electronically w...

Re: new battery for Ford focus electric for 55 kWh

I'd love to help but I wouldn't even know where to start. I'm handy with electronics but don't know how any of the module programming works.

Re: care for older battery

Not to be a Debbie downer but I hope you didn't pay much for it. You are out of warranty and if your battery has a problem it is a throwaway car. FYI the most common failure method is cells swelling which results in coolant connections in the battery being pulled apart and flooding the battery with ...
