    understanding what sensors and DTC to read/dump in CarScanner ?

    I read and exported my DTC from CarScanner the other day.... hoping to see something to give insight to my front camera 'blinks', and/or my one recent center screen blink. I read the DTC, and exported to a text file... but it looks to me like some of the codes recorded might not apply to the MME...

    Anybody tried Emergency Flat-tow w Regen to charge when stuck in the boonies?

    I haven't tried it, but I am concerned with an upcoming trip I have to make in Northern New Mexico.... way off main roads, NO level 3 chargers within 200 miles, and NO Level 2 even anywhere close. Trip research shows I will be right on the edge of safe range, and would be in trouble if temps...

    SSM/TSB for common problems not officially Recalled - [more info needed on front camera failure]

    I thought I'd start a short list of 'critical' issues that @Ford Motor Company has not issued recalls for, but chosen to handle with SSMs or TSBs to handle problems that require actual Dealer-only remove/replace service work to fix. I am starting with ones that I have personally suffered thru...

    20,000 mile checkin - post yours when you hit the mark

    I saw @SnBGC 60,000 report, and thought I'd start one for people hitting 20,000. I think it might be super useful for @Ford Motor Company to spot trends for what is holding up, and what is not. I'd suggest that if you've hit 20k miles, you post YOUR report on the good, bad, and ugly experiences...

    Front camera error Alert pops up and goes away - what's the fix ?

    Over the last month or so, usually when I hit a bump like railroad tracks, or a bump while making a turn, I have noticed an Alert flash up on the display. It doesn't stay up long enough for me to get a picture, but is is something like "Front Camera error - Service suggested" and then a second...

    Slow Tripping in Northern New Mexico

    Pretty! But risky since there are NO L3 chargers north of Santa Fe. There aren't even any public access L2 stations until Taos.... But I had a job to do in Chama, and decided to risk the drive up and then over to Taos hoping to find a campground or resturant with a 240v outlet before I got to...

    Anybody add a front tow hook to US MME yet?

    I am considering adding a front bumper hook similar to what is available with EU Mach-e.... Has anyone done this yet? If I pull the Frunk tub out, will I have access to the back of the bumper, or am I going to have to pull off the whole front facia to get to the bumper? I am hoping I can get...

    I seem to have a growing pile of mods and repairs as I go on down the road with my ePony 'EVKARMA', so I thought I would start a thread to act as an index to the various mods, workarounds, fixes, and enhancements to put together a rough index to various mods as an index to specific threads. ----...

    DIY cargo floor bracket repair

    There have been a number of people, including myself, that have had the brackets holding the cargo floor in the 'upper' position shear right off. In my case I had only a moderate amount of weight in the cargo area, but I hit a 'speed table' (hiding in the shade without the usual warning sign or...

    HowTo Fabricate Portable Power and charge from your MME

    Just wanted to post a couple pix of my 'mid-size' Portable power unit... 2kWhr of Lithium battery, 3000watt pure sine inverter, and a custom cord are all you need to keep it charged from your MME by accessing the 12v connection points for 'extended use' or re-charging when you need to, and then...

    Anyone had 'Service Vehicle Soon' Alert (SVS) progress to 'Stop Safely Now' (SSN) before they managed to get HVBJB replaced?

    I am just wondering what the risk is continuing to drive around with the SVS Alert on screen while I wait for my replacement HVBJB to arrive. The alert DOES limit max output from normal 200kw for my Select to 125kw, so I am wondering if this has proven effective in preventing unexpected...

    any statistics on progression from ServiceVehicleSoon (SVS) to StopSafelyNow (SSN) ?

    I am wondering if anyone has been keeping track of the percentage and/or the elapsed time or miles or conditions between when people first got a SVS Alert, and when/if it progressed to SSN. The reason this is topmost in my mind is since having the SVS Alert pop up (10/5/22 for me), I am very...

    There have been a couple threads lately (post software 'recall'/update OTA) from people that got the error Alert 'Service Vehicle Soon'. (SVS Alert) I got just such an alert 10/5/22 at 18,165 mi on the OD. I have a Select AWD-SR, so was in a 'lower' risk group, but it did eventually happen. I...

    Anybody else show your MME at a DriveElectricWeek.org event? I did.

    I did... at our local event on the Santa Fe Plaza yesterday. It was a lot of fun! There were 2 new MMEs, my 2021 MME, two Lightnings, a Rivian, eTron, eHummer, Kia ev6, ID.4, the City's new eSchoolBus, and a host of Teslas. My MME was the only one with any modifications, everybody else was...

    Bluetooth suddenly fails to connect phone FordPass to MME PAAK, [fixed by uninstall / re-configure of FP and PAAK]

    My BT connectivity, and use of PAAK have been flawless for over a year.... but BT connection reliability has dropped dramatically over the last couple days. I would see temporary 're-connecting to <my phone>' on the main console screen occasionally, yesterday PAAK failed with no BT, and the...

    So.... when I first got my MME I had a problem w Display heating up and going black when I parked or drove facing South.

    Fix(es) for Display Overheating

    Shortly after I took delivery of my MME, I noticed I had a repeatable problem with the center display screen going black when it overheated. This occurred not just when parking in the sun, but even when driving South since the back of the display sticks up, is black, and has no ventilation. I...

    Using your Mach-e to Power electric devices for 'Glamping' or Home Emergency Battery Backup

    I used to have a '66 Sunbeam Tiger.... headers, big cam, dual point ignition, etc.... damn thing ran HOT, but in the old days the top of the motor was uncluttered, and you could fit a good sized baking dish right on top between the carburator the radiator expansion tank such that it wouldn't...
