Re: 2017+ usable capacity

I suggest using Forscan and an OBD reader to get the capacity from the battery module. I use OBD Link EX USB reader, as my Bluetooth reader doesn't work well with this car. Much faster than trying to do a rundown test. Good luck with your search.

Re: 2014 Focus EV vs 2016 E-golf

What area are you in? That commute in cold climates might be iffy with the 2014 model, as range decreases substantially in winter. And I'm going to be super sexist here, but in my experience women don't tolerate inconvenience with automobiles. She's not going to be happy rolling into the driveway wi...

Re: Upgrade to Sync 3.4

I've done the update two or three times using Cyan's updater on my FFE and Expedition. I generally do it to keep maps updated because there's a lot of construction and new businesses opening in my area. Never had an issue with it, though it does take awhile. The last time I tried a map only update, ...

Re: Long term support - keep or sell?

I have similar concerns, as the quality on my Expedition is spotty and I'm wary of owning my 2017 FFE outside of the warranty. For the meantime, my wife and I are really enjoying our ownership experience. My original plan was to drive it until warranty expiration, then upgrade to a later model, but ...

Re: Air Conditioning drawing more than normal

Dark window tint, and garage or shade. I've noticed that the AC power use decreases as the interior cools off. The last time I idled with AC on, it used 8 miles of range in the first 30 - 60 minutes, then only power consumption dropped drastically.

Re: New to me 2017 FFE getting ~70 miles per charge

I'd like to learn more about using the Model S modules for backup. I'm interested in getting a salvage 75 kWh pack for solar storage. Is there a written guide online someplace? These packs are the cheapest I've seen per kWh of storage.

Re: Numerous Issues - HELP!

Rather late, but I recall seeing something about software updates to address the vehicle killing the 12V battery while parked for long periods. Also, someone said something about the circuitry using power for the cellular module, which communicates with the Ford app. The person suggested that places...

Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

I've heard of this issue, but have not experienced it personally with my 2017 FFE. I'm in Houston, where the summers are generally very hot and humid. My wife did say she saw it happen once, but it did not last very long. My car is generally in the garage when at home, because that is where it charg...

Re: Sync 3 questions.

It works, I did the Cyanlabs update a few days ago. Takes about 30 to 35 minutes to update everything. I used their sync 3 updater and a 32 GB USB drive.

Re: PERFORMANCE TUNING ANYONE?

Bump for new 2017 owner. I guess this never went anywhere? How different is the software compared to other Ford products?
