I admire those of you who have gone the route of a FDRS license and updating on your own.
I am also amazed at the number of posts in this forum about dealer-based updates going off the rails, failing, requiring long drawn out factory specialist engagements - things just not going smoothly...
When I bought mine, July 2021, dealer told me it would cost $1k more if I didn't finance. I told them I would take the advertised Ford Credit - 1.9% for 60 months.
The F&I goon called me a few hours later to report they got me "a sweet deal" with XXX monthly payment. Only after pressure did...
I too am seeing the mobile charger starting to fail. the Grizl-E 40 classic seems like the choice for me for a reliable dumb EVSE.
My question: is the Grizl-e input cable long enough and flexible enough to allow mounting the unit similarly to the Ford Mobile charger - with the unit mounting...
Does anyone have a technical assessment or real design data on the expected lifespan or duty cycle of the Ford Mobile Charger?
It seems a bit "lightweight" for daily use-- which Im doing now. Honestly, I'd be OK to learn NOW it is not designed for daily use so I can:
1. put the mobile charger...
- the offender saw you were at max change, or near max charge.
- they really needed a charge to get home or get to the hospital to visit their dying mother.
- is new to all this EV owners and courtesy stuff, and is at this very moment is reading some Tesla forum and is sheepishly...
I've had this same "screen lost colors" twice over the last week or 2. It was only a problem on the radio display - all colers were present in Android auto apps.
Once I did the dark/light display toggle and the colors were fine after that. Another time, the display retuened to normal...
I gave up on using the USB for music directly after a few crashes (sync, not the car)
I now use th usb connector now for my phone. Using Android Auto and musicolet as the music player. It is the best android app for stored music I could find. It just works!
Public policy question - Isn't charging the patrol car at home the equivalent of paying for your own gas?
I hope the Juicebox is smart enough to record your use - so fuel expenses can be reimbursed.
Overall, this is a great test and public service to show the viability of using an BEV patrol...
What??? No more ADM??
What are they trying to do - ruin the dealer experience?
But I hope we can still pay extra for paint treatment, fabric protector, tire wax, void-if-used extended warranties, asteroid strike insurance!! Why else do we need dealers?
I would not recommend Kelly Ford in Beverly. I could not get a professional response to body damage that occured prior to delivery.
Sales says talk to Service Manager
Service Manager say talk to General Manager
General Manager doesn't take or return phone calls
Seems like we are learning what...
Do we expect to know how long the vehicle would need to be parked for the update? Minutes? hours? days?
How can offer a schedule for the car to be parked, off with doors closed, etc if we don't know how long it will take?
Could it be true??? Did the 4.10.0 update end the Andoid power drain problems?
Previously, some of us reported inconsistent but significant power drain problems on Android if trying to use FP as intended, advertised and sold as a feature on MME. (It was on my Monroney label as a working...
I would ask for a representative (an officer of the corporation, or another agent designated to represent the company) of the dealer to either put it in writing that you must buy the extended warranty in order to get the publicly offered financing in the car. If they won't put that demand in...
The penny "charge" may have been a preauthorization of your payment source on record when the charge starts. Then when the charge is complete, the system confirmed they don't need to charge you after all.
