    New owner question about displayed range and real world range.

    Yes it does. It also helps to understand that it uses your driving history (how you drive and the conditions you were driving in) and that the history is weighted in favour of the most recent use. In other words, your energy consumption during the most recent ten miles of driving count for more...

    Free adapter?

    When this was posted in a Lightning forum, I posted this comment... If buying an MME or Lightning is being "ahead of the curve", then buying an FFE must have been downright clairvoyant. Someone else responded saying not clairvoyant enough to see in advance how poorly Ford would treat us...

    12v battery appears dead

    Follow-up: when it came time to try starting, I reconnected the battery but left the power supply connected like getting a boost. It started fine, but the 100% SOC HV battery showed a GOM of 0 km. As it sat on for a few minutes, the range started to increase. I took the car for a short drive (2...

    12v battery appears dead

    My FFE is 6 years, 5 months old and I've never had an issue with the 12 volt battery - until today. Used the car to run an errand and everything was fine. Got home and parked behind my son's car and a couple of hours later when he needed to go out, mine wouldn't start. The display said I should...

    Traction Control Off Warning

    About two months ago, I got a "Traction Control Off" warning that cleared itself before I could get home and see if ForScan could give me any further information. This did not recur again until a week ago when it came on on two occasions. Both times again, it cleared before I reached home and...

    Charge Time Estimate Garbage Since Upgrading Modem

    My FFE was in for the 144,000 km service check yesterday and I asked for them to do the TCU update. For $159.95 I got back Value Charging, Go Times, and a reasonable estimate in the display of how long it will take to charge. Now I just got to see if Ford's customer service is willing to...

    Value charge issue.

    My FFE was in for the 144,000 km service check yesterday and I asked for them to do the TCU update. For $159.95 I got back Value Charging, Go Times, and a reasonable estimate in the display of how long it will take to charge. Now I just got to see if Ford's customer service is willing to...

    Free adapter?

    I could be wrong, but I don't believe there is any software support needed to use the NACS adapter with an FFE. My wife's Lightning recently got an update related to NACS charging, but it was for FordPass support to allow plug-and-charge, not for the charging itself. I never expected to be...

    highway range

    It would be more correct to say "while driving under highway conditions" as it's compared with "city conditions". While speed is one factor, the greatest effect is from the stop-and-go of city driving versus not having that on the highway. All that stopping and going and constant changes in...

    Free adapter?

    Getting back to the Ford-provided NACS/CCS adapters... Ford announced today that the ability to order the free adapters is available, but note that on their website they say "offering a Fast Charging Adapter to 2021-2024 Ford Electric Vehicle (EV) owners and lessees enrolled in the BOCN" So...

    Value charge issue.

    I lost Value Charging and Go Times when my FFE got the 4G modem in March 2022. It was bad TCU code causing it. The other noticeable effect is that the charge time estimate is totally bogus. It started as being "5 minutes" regardless of SOC, but has occasionally changed a bit, but still pretty...

    Lets take a poll, who has the most miles/years on their FFE?

    Got my 2017 FFE in November that year and am a week or two away from hitting 145,000 km (about 99,100 mi). Still getting close to the same range on a full charge as when new. It seemed to be dropping about 3% per year, but this past summer had many days starting with more than ever on the GOM...

    Free adapter?

    It looks like FFE owners are left stranded again by Ford... Ford CEO confirms complimentary charging adapters coming soon I'm pleased to confirm that eligible #MustangMachE & #F150Lightning owners in the U.S. + Canada can reserve a complimentary adapter starting soon," Farley wrote.

    2017 FFE Battery degradation

    A major reason that the A/C is not such a hit on the range is that even if you don't feel the need for the compressor to be on, the motor and battery will need some cooling that just running coolant through the radiator will not be enough for. What we've noticed regularly is that when you switch...

    Charging Start and Charging Complete Times Stuck

    Did you happen to get the modem upgraded to 4G at that time? I did and lost the ability of the car to implement Value Charging, and it's estimated time complete charging has nothing to do with reality. Ford was aware that the TCU software installed with the upgrade had a bug that messed this...

    Charge Time Estimate Garbage Since Upgrading Modem

    I won't hold that against you. :) Sure, it's 50% more, but I was thinking if it took a minute, it would cost an hour of labour, which is $165 (CAD) according to what appears on the invoice.

    Charge Time Estimate Garbage Since Upgrading Modem

    I'm going to ask my own dealership, reminding them that we just purchased an F150 Lightning from them. As for the TSB, yes and no. The bulletin from Ford Canada from this past April is primarily about the extension of the program to replace the modem. It does specifically have a paragraph that...

    No Cooling

    On my 2017 FFE, both caps are black. The low pressure port is closer to the front and the tube that rises up to it is thinner than the tube rising up to the high pressure cap. However, the line that the low pressure tube connects to is thicker than the one that the high pressure cap's tube...

    Charge Time Estimate Garbage Since Upgrading Modem

    While my FFE is at a dealership for service on something else, I asked about getting the latest TCU update in the hopes that it will fix my Value Charge/Go Times problems. For whatever reason, it has not been updated OTA. They have told me they could do it, but I would have to pay for it. I...

    No Cooling

    Understood. "100%" that is visible is not really 100% of the battery's full capacity for a few reasons one of which is to give the perception that there is not much or any loss in capacity as the battery ages. If what reads as "100%" when the vehicle is new is really only 80% (as an example) of...
