  1. I'm loading in back, passenger can't enter door?

    Do I have some setting wrong? I've been in the situation more than once where I am loading something in the back (lets say groceries) and my wife cannot open the passenger door until I open the driver's door first. Clearly the car knows I'm there because I opened the hatchback door...
  2. Advice when your dealer has trouble installing 21p22?

    I took my 2021 job 2 in for the update today and they spent the "whole day" without success. I have to pick it up because I can't leave it for them to try another day. When I bring it back, can I direct them somehow to give them a head start for next try? I suspect they haven't done this a...
  3. When will job 2 MMEs get improved charging upgrade?

    Of all the upgrades released, the one that I am most interested in is the lowered time to charge from 80% to 90% when on the road. My most likely long-distance trip I make is Eugene, OR to Seattle, WA at about 300 miles and the difference of being able to get to 90% instead of 80% quickly can...
  4. Has anybody had their BlueCruise take evasive action?

    I use BlueCruise every day (and yes, I feel for those who don't have it yet), but I've always wondered what would happen if someone merged into my lane while I am in their blind spot. Will BlueCruise choose simply to brake or will it actually swerve to the side to avoid the car? Since this...
  5. Why is there always a flag and "1 mi" below my range?

    On the line below my battery range but above my battery %, I see a "....1 mi (flag)". It never changes. What is this about? I searched the manual but couldn't find it. I'm sure there is an obvious answer.
  6. Has anybody plotted freeway speed vs. charge time on a trip?

    If I drive at an average speed of 75 miles per hour for 150 miles between charges it will take two hours. My battery will have gone from 80% to x% and take y minutes to recharge back up to 80%. If I drive at an average speed of 65 miles per hour for 150 miles between charges it will take 2...
  7. First practice charge in the wild, some newbie questions.

    I'm getting ready to take a 300 mile trip to Seattle so I thought I'd work the kinks out of how to charge on the road by using a local EA station. Some notes and questions: 1) Wow. The length of the charging cord was short! I had to move my car three times and then inch as close as I could to...
  8. Could paint chips be a warranty issue?

    I've had my rapid red Mach E for 1200 miles now and I already have three paint chips on the hood. I do drive six miles on the I-5 back and forth to work, but our CR-V which does the same thing (which we have owned for over two years) has very little damage on the front. My build was in the...
  9. Do you use third party route planners for charging?

    I haven't taken a trip yet requiring charging, but am getting ready to do so from Eugene, OR to Woodinville, WA in a week. I searched around the interwebs for route planners and came across abetterrouteplanner.com which seemed interesting. I compared their plan with the Ford Pass plan and was...
  10. Four touches to turn Auto Fan off??

    The Auto button only cycles between level 3-2-1 and not off. The only way I've found to turn it off is to: Touch the fan icon. Touch "-" which causes "off" to appear at the bottom of the fan speed scale. Touch "off" Touch the fan icon to close the slider. That seems like a lot... Am I...
  11. Tips for a fussy charge port door?

    I've had my Premium for about two weeks now and when I attempt to close the charge port door I am successful maybe 50% of the time. I've tried to push harder. I've tried to hold. Nothing seems to reliably work and it just comes down to doing it twice or even three times. Do others have...
  12. What would happen if you shifted to R or P while moving?

    I can't say I'm a fan of the gear dial. For example, when I park at work, I have to back up to park. Spinning the dial from D to R is more prone to overspinning to P than with a tranditional system which may have means to help prevent a mistake. It got me to wondering, what would happen if...
  13. Do people find the actual brakes too responsive with 1-PD?

    I've had my Mach-E for 48 hours, but I have extensive 1-PD experience on a Chevy Volt so it didn't take long to accommodate to the much more aggressive regenerative braking and actual stopping ability that 1-PD offers on the Mach-E (I do sorta miss a brake paddle though). However, I am finding...
  14. When should you expect your car to show in palsapp?

    I currently have a delivery date of 11/1-11/7, but I've gone through the process of one date, then N/A, and now this so I'm not entirely trusting. A few questions: 1) I assume my car is still in Mexico. Does it go from Mexico to Kansas City first? Can I ever tell if it's made the trip into...
  15. What does sitting in a parking lot in Mexico for three months do to a battery?

    I can't imagine this is the best way to welcome a new battery into life. My MME was built mid July and I assume is still sitting somewhere in Mexico without a brain. Is this of concern considering I still don't have a delivery estimate and it will likely be 3-4 months without a charge?
  16. Vehicles with higher VIN# in showroom while mine is stuck in purgatory?

    I have a Mach E ordered on May 3rd and "built" July 11th but is slated to be delivered on the generic "10/31". I've been watching inventory to see if I can find a similar model and snatch it up earlier. Today, for the first time, I noticed a VIN# with the last digits substantially higher than...
