Re: CCS upgrade for older Focus

Do you mean what I call a front junction box? I believe it has some contactors inside, it cables to the DC fast charge terminals, the inverter, and the HV battery. There is also some logic harness attached, probably for control of the contactors and possibly protocol. https://i.ibb.co/DzD0VGw/E86-C3...

Re: Clunk in Transfer Case (Video)

From the video, it looked like that was the LH CV joint. RockAuto has a trakmotive for $75, or a Motorcraft for $144.
Also, what about the differential recall?

Re: Rough engage/disengage feel of engine

Looks like RockAuto sells a motor mount and a torque bar mount for the FFE. Look for the 2012 FFE.

Re: Reminder of why EVs can be awesome to own

California is such that you cannot register anything for less than $80. That is including motorcycles. I believe they have an ev tax as well. With the price of gas exceeding $6 a gallon here, it is more cost efficient to use the EV. Mind you, when gas was less, the high cost of electricity made oper...

Re: The Engineering Dream

Well, lets see. You could download the service manual I linked to. It has some theory of operation type stuff in it. https://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=33336 Ford has a course for technicians to learn about the FFE, I believe that is about $90. https://www.motorcraftservice.com/Pu...

Re: Proactive upper battery back coolant bypass? Opinions

Hmm, I wonder if you could pull the drain plugs from the bottom the battery packs, and replace them with a short (or long) piece of clear tubing. Block off end of course. That way, you could check the tube so often for the presence of coolant.

Re: When to say goodbye

So what about getting an extended warranty for the battery? Is that possible?
Even if it was a $1000 for an additional 5 years, that would be great insurance.

Re: Proud New Owners

I prefer to use the paid windows version of Forscan. You can do more than the app versions, and the license is about $10 a year. I have an OBDLink MX+ as well, and it is great, but for the functionality you need, you can go with the OBDLink EX or the VLinker FS. I also have both. Wow, just checked p...

Re: Proud New Owners

Congratulations! I am hoping the car will give you years of trouble free miles. If you were to use Forscan to see the HV battery temperatures, you might be surprised. The HV battery does have a bit of thermal mass, so even though it can get stupid hot in LA, your battery temperature will probably be...

Re: Sync version and 4g modem

I hope that is not the case, otherwise updating to the 4G modem would just be throwing money away, as I updated to sync 3.4 as well.
