    Electrify America pricing on Blue Oval charge network

    I just went through this yesterday with EA. If you want to use your pass+ discounted rate, you must use the app and not the Blue Oval network. Here is what I learned, open the EA app and pick your charger, where it says plug in then swipe right to initiate, swipe right first then plug in your...

    Car completely died on me about an hour ago.

    Ford Roadside told me, they will only tow an EV. They won't do anything else.

    Me too, how long does it usually take to get the next one?

    Car completely died on me about an hour ago.

    seriously, I'm not going to explain it as I'm not an screen repair technician. Besides, an explanation won't solve your problem. I wish you luck.

    Wow….. could the screen be damaged somehow undetected by the naked eye? Any other issues with the screen?

    Why am I a ”know it all” and your not? Not teasing either….. Can‘t we have a disagreement / debate / conversation with out name calling? Let’s be mature please.

    Wireless Charging as seen on Ask This Old House

    They said that it would be integrated with the current software and screen once into production. Assuming [and I think they will] car companies buy into the technology. I love the idea but would not add a screen to my dash, talk About a distraction……..

    4,708 mile trip - 12 states, 8 National Parks (missed 2 and 1 monument due to weather and car issues) - and one failed HVBJB...

    I get it, but at least it’s a lot more stations for us. We get the charging station technology, not the Tesla car technology.

    HVBJB recall: what breaks? and how can it be fixed?

    Your kind of implying that the design was sound and Ford just miscalculated the power going through the connector. I would suggest the more likely aspect of this issue, is that the vender cut corners and provided Ford with a sub-standard connector not to spec. Just my thoughts…..

    Plug in to Maintain 12V Battery

    Your mostly likely right. I didn’t always pay attention to the manufacturing date of the vehicle. I can say that my new MME was manufactured in July this year and I bought it September 30th. So in theory, I should have a pretty good 12v battery. Let’s see…….

    Plug in to Maintain 12V Battery

    All 12v car batteries should last 4+ years, period. When they don’t, it’s caused by the vehicle or the battery itself. I grew up in Minnesota and in my day it got frick’en cold in the winter and super hot in the summer. Back in the 1970’s and 80’s, batteries lasted 5+ years no problem...

    Plug in to Maintain 12V Battery

    I think we are talking about 12v batteries here and not EV 12v batteries. So other than the battery being a little smaller at 330 cca, which some small cars actually use, it is the same battery whether in An EV or ICE. My experience with Ford is that 8 out of 10 new Ford cars I’ve bought over...

    First Tesla Superchargers with "Magic Dock" CCS Adapter are online... and charged up a Rivian

    Someone needs to develop wireless charging for our EV’s. Pull up close, auto connection, can decide on the vehicle screen to charge or not. Now that could simply eliminate any physical connects. To some degree, that technology already exists. Wouldn’t that be cool……!

    Plug in to Maintain 12V Battery

    Are you sure the HVB won’t keep the 12v battery at a nearly full state of charge nearly all the time? You’re right about lead batteries. An ICE vehicle will constantly keep the 12v battery at a full state. Seems weird if the MME dosen't do the same….. but I don’t know….. I’m just asking…..
