Re: Considering giving up the fight

I am sorry that you have an HVIL problem, but it isn't as complicated as you might think. Each high voltage connector has a mini subconnector for HVIL. The error that you got means that some high voltage connector is not properly seated/fastened. From the service manual: P0A0A:01 Normal Operation an...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

So maybe this is something that we could put our collective heads together and try to figure out. Why are the cells swelling? I found this article online: https://www.dfrsolutions.com/blog/why-do-lithium-ion-batteries-swell and there are 5 reasons listed: Overcharge conditions which accelerate paras...

Re: AT&T sunset and MyFordMobile app

Yes, that is the correct fuse. Strange to call it that. Its called the Telematics Control Unit for other years. See here: https://fuse-box.info/ford/ford-focus-electric-2012-2018-fuses-and-relay Lately I have been hunting a 880ma parasitic draw in my 2017 FFE 12 low voltage circuit. It has been tryi...

Re: So Ford thinks this is a recall?

Well, if enough people voice their concern about this "recall" we have to pay for, the NHTSA will start an investigation.

Re: SOBDM Parts - EM58-10B689-AD

Yep, thats the SOBDM. Congrats!
You would think that a charger that big, it could handle 10kw charging. I swear the charger in the Fiat 500E is half that size, and it can handle 7kw charging. Why is the SOBDM so damn big?

Re: SOBDM Parts - EM58-10B689-AD

Ok, I went to the website, and they hopefully are sending the correct part. But something really has me puzzled. In the SF Bay Area, there are absolutely no FFEs in junkyards, same with Sacramento. Yet some junkyard in the Middle of Nowhere Wyoming, has 8 of them. What???? And they pretty much look ...

Re: SOBDM Parts - EM58-10B689-AD

Congrats on finding the SOBDM cheap, and in Wyoming of all places. Do verify that they are sending you the correct part. In the invoice, they call it a DC converter/inverter. The DCDC converter is not the SOBDM, and neither is the inverter. The SOBDM is the on-board charger. It is located on the und...

So Ford thinks this is a recall?

So the MyFord Mobile app doesn't even try to work, it just pretty much says: "You're Hosed!" So I thought to check the Ford Pass app, just to see if it still communicates with the car. Nope. But I noticed on the Home screen, there is a recall icon. If I touch it, it opens a file about the ...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

Thank you so very much for these photos! It is very interesting, that at the top of the pack, the liquid appears to be water condensate, yet at the bottom of the pack it is definitely coolant. And the way the silver nuts are corroded, it appears that the condensate has been there for a while. I see ...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

If it is not too much trouble, can you post pictures of the pack interior and the leaked coolant, and what appears to be the suspect origin of the leak?
Thank you very much!
