    Part Wanted WTB: FFE lower battery connector "locking lever".

    If you do that, there are some resins that are stupidly strong. I would not trust FDM to replace what is likely a glass fiber reinforced molded part. Perhaps something like this

    Part Wanted WTB: FFE lower battery connector "locking lever".

    If you do use a dry lubricant, DO NOT USE GRAPHITE as it's conductive.

    Is the FFE Battery a Time Bomb?

    I have a feeling that the usable capacity will have degraded to an unbearable point before it's likely to rupture. Keep in mind that the end of useful life for batteries is typically 80% of the original capacity. Any info on the point at which outgassing ramps up?

    Vehicle For Sale 2012 FFE: $3500 OBO

    *Very* tempting. What's the interior color?

    LED Turn Signals and Headlights

    You can always run a ground if the fixture is floating. Can't speak to blink rate.

    Part Wanted WTB: FFE lower battery connector "locking lever".

    I've found the exact part numbers before, I'll see if I can dig them up to confirm status.

    Battery completely dead after I just charged last night???

    That sounds like a dead 12V battery, a charging station won't help.

    Is this charger selling on Facebook part of the recall?

    The change they made was switching to a Clipper Creek based unit that supported a thermistor in the wall plug to monitor for overtemp if the plug isn't making good contact. It's not inherently unsafe. That said, the dealer may very well still swap it under the recall if it's the old one. The...

    CCS upgrade for older Focus

    If CCS gets set up, it should work normally. It's effectively implementing the factory equipment on the older vehicle. Haven't been able to move forward on it. Some worthwhile info though - the main harness doesn't differ. It's difficult to tell from the pictures Ford has, but it's the same...

    Exhaustive quantitative Power and Energy values at speed

    It's only meant to catalog the energy requirements versus speed. There's a view that shows climate, accessory, wh/mi and range/SoC on a single screen. That might give some clues. The battery heater doesn't kick on unless the coolant going into the battery is at or below 40F - and it's unlikely...

    New owner question about displayed range and real world range.

    EtE is Energy-to-empty. It's the value of actual energy the vehicle can pull from the battery before it's discharged. They might run to "0%" charge but they are not dealing with the actual cell SoC. When your battery is fully charged, the actual pack is at 95.0% SoC. When it's at zero, the pack...

    New owner question about displayed range and real world range.

    It's easy enough to figure your energy capacity using the trip meter, assuming you can't just pull EtE with Forscan. The EPA estimate of 117 miles would be against 29kwh EtE on a new pack, which worked out to ~250Wh/mi. After my pack swap, I could manage that range on a round trip at ~65mph...

    New owner question about displayed range and real world range.

    Pretty much. Prediction algorithm is a pretty lofty term for it. Feels quite a bit like an old windows download dialog.

    New owner question about displayed range and real world range.

    Has that been quantified? I've been considering a long term log of distance and power power use versus the estimate to try and nail down the actual formula. But if someone has already confirmed that, no real need.

    Coolant Change. Use forscan to get the air out?

    Considering the engine RPM control and the thermostat action, it seems doubtful this would be used on the FFE.

    New owner question about displayed range and real world range.

    Round trip from and back to my house, so the same elevation gained and lost in total. Just good old hypermiling.

    If you ramp up just pump A do you hear it running?
