  1. Preferred charge time ends an hour early

    I have the preferred charge time at my house set to midnight-3 PM. The only control is through the car settings; the EVSE is set to 24/7. Yesterday I plugged in about noon, it started charging, and then at exactly 2 PM it stopped charging prior to reaching the SOC setpoint. The car clock is...
  2. Map/dome light bug

    I tried a couple searches and didn't find anything. If you have the map light on when turning off the car there is no (reasonable) way to turn it off. To replicate: Park Turn on a map light Turn off the car All the interior lights come on and pressing the button for the map light does...
  3. Am I alone in having crappy CR1 aero covers?

    Car is about a year old and ever since new I've had problems with the aero covers popping out away from the wheel, and some of the foam dampening pieces coming out. Is this normal? I haven't been able to find other similar complaints. Any thoughts on how to best fix this? I need to do a tire...
  4. Seat covers to reduce swamp ass?

    The Select/CR1 non-perforated seats are quite warm in the summer, resulting in swamp ass and a moist back. Are there seat covers that make a significant improvement to this? I'm not familiar enough with covers on solid seat material to know if the neoprene or whatever they're typically made...
  5. Which cheap TPMS re-learn tool?

    I need to buy a tool so I can set the proper tire locations after doing a rotation on my 2022. Which of these will work? https://www.amazon.com/VXDAS-Programming-Training-Transmitter-8C2Z-1A203/dp/B07WDFJKMB https://www.amazon.com/VXDAS-Relearn-UL-50448-Pressure-Monitor/dp/B07YHPYHL6...
  6. Scissor jack options

    I've heard bad things about the Modern Spare jack and basically all of the other chinese scissor jacks, so I'm investigating alternative options. The Tesla forum loves the used aluminum Porsche jacks (https://www.ebay.com/itm/134160597691 for example). However, they only have a 2200 lb weight...
  7. A primer on EV power contactors

    I learned today that a new co-worker was previously the reliability engineer for contactors on a well known EV, so I picked his brain. Most of what people have been discussing here is correct but there are definitely some misconceptions. Background: Despite what suppliers say, contactors...
  8. BNSF limiting cargo, including automotive, into CA starting next week

    What a great railroad! I wonder how the STB will handle this; they're already displeased with the state of freight movement. Hopefully Ford is a big enough customer they are exempted...
  9. The 1PD brake light algorithm needs fixed

    In the past couple months I haven't been behind very many MMEs for long periods of time on the freeway, but two of them had had the brake lights going off like strobe lights. This is presumably from 1PD. One was completely ridiculous, and one was just quite annoying. Yet I'm not sure I've...
  10. Does 10 ft pipe/conduit fit inside?

    My 2009 RAV4 will fit 10 ft lengths from the rear left to the front right with the back seat down and the passenger seat reclined. Very useful for picking up PVC pipe and conduit without needing to spend time securing an external load. Will 10 ft lengths fit similarly in a Mach-E? It would be...
  11. 2022 ranges by trim level

    Hello, has any more concrete information come out via press releases / PR events to help clarify the conflicting/old info on ford.com? I'm trying to decide on a trim level for an ER AWD model. Here's what I'm finding: Scrolling down to specs at https://www.ford.com/suvs/mach-e/ CA Route 1 =...
