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...

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 para...

Re: 2012-2014 FFE Battery Life

Don't buy it unless you can afford to throw away the car at any given moment. The batteries should be good for 100K plus but many have experienced coolant leaks in the battery that have killed the batteries. Ford offers a refurb battery for $13k plus more to install it. So it's a throw away car if s...

Re: AT&T sunset and MyFordMobile app

Thank you! We've pulled the fuse from the "Cellphone passport module", fuse F1, rating 5A, located in the Luggage Compartment Fuse Box. So far, so good--I took our FFE out this morning, and all seemed fine. I was wondering if I'd lose any other capability if I pulled that fuse, but I didn...

Re: Used FFE Thoughts

They were indeed sold in northern Illinois. I live in Northern Ohio and bought mine from a dealer just across the border from you in Wisconsin. None of the Ohio / Michigan dealers wanted to sell me a FFE at a reasonable price in 2014. I actually found the dealer I got mine from on this forum. They o...

Re: Departure times not working after 4G upgrade

can you set your go times from the Sync screen in the car or are go times completely broken with the 4G TCU?

Re: Mobile aplication will not work in februar :-(

I am not aware of a way to change go times in the Ford focus Electric's User interface. In the settings somewhere in your sync system. I don't use it and it's been so long I don't remember exactly where it is but it is there. Also Go times and Value charging are dependent on the TCU so pulling the ...

Re: AT&T sunset and MyFordMobile app

Hi All, My car is a 2014 Focus EV with the SYNC 2 system. I’m trying to decide what would be the benefit of upgrading to 4g vs. upgrading the system to SYNC 3. I’m unclear about what features disappear when 3g turns off. Mostly when I’m out and about I like the idea that if I lock my key fob in the...
