    Disable Backup Beeping?

    When putting cover back on start at one front corner. Put in that screw and then across the front row. Then do back row. After that do push pins. Not that hard if you do it in that order.

    Got my new wheels for winter

    I wonder if it is possible to recalibrate cars computer for different size tires so that all the instruments are still reading correctly.

    Floor Mats that come with Mach-E

    I thought those little cloth floor mats that came with the car were maxi pads. Since my wife is post menopausal I threw them away........

    Got my new wheels for winter

    I really like those wheels. I don't think they will protrude to much. what size tires are you going to use so they don't rub in wheel wells? Also where did you purchase. After the OEM tires wear out I might pick up a set of those for larger tires myself.

    Three days of ownership and only two gripes

    I pulled off the pedestrian sound speaker cover. There is an inside piece in the cover you can remove. I then cut three small layers (round) of 1/8 inch neoprene rubber and laid those in the outside cover and screwed it back together leaving the inside plastic screen out. You can just barely...

    Does anyone plan to use AM radio in their Mach-E?

    AM is only for those long lonely night rides where you can listen to boring talk shows.......

    Three days of ownership and only two gripes

    First....I can't help it, but the low speed pedestrian noise and backup sound are really quite annoying. A neighbor remarked to me also "I thought electric cars were silent, that thing makes more noise than my truck". I have to agree. The noise is much more intrusive than the warning noises...

    Capacitor as a battery

    I remember reading that series years ago. Wonder what Mark Twain would think of our electric wagons.......I forgot what they found when they finally got to the misty tower at the end.

    Capacitor as a battery

    Just finished reading article. Thanks, Mark. Guess for now will just have to charge those capacitors and throw them at my grandkids as they can't power my EV........:D

    Capacitor as a battery

    Ok, I have to admit that my background is in nuclear mechanical engineering and not as an electrical engineer. But a question that perplexes me that maybe someone can shoot down. Electrical capacitors can be charged very very quickly. Why couldn't a large capacitor be used instead of a...

    2022 Mach-E changes?

    I would love to see a Electric GT coupe. Another winner for me would be whoever develops an electric two seater the size of the Mazda that is an convertible. Not sure how they could put a big enough battery in a car that size to give it any decent range.

    I Think I’ve Figured Out PaaK

    SImple solution to PAAK problem. Get another FOB until they fix it.....granted, Ford should provide this but they are not that expensive. My dealer programmed the second key that I bought online for nothing. That was after my wife unloaded on them for not wanting to honor a prior trade-in...

    Finally, Our Star White AWD EX Premium arrived

    I converted reservation to order on 7/20/20. Last five of VIN is 09271. It was manufactured 3/9 and shipped 3/10. All in all that was pretty fast shipping with all of the COVID delays etc. Build date was put back from 2/15 several times until settled at 3/9. I feel very fortunate to not...

    Finally, Our Star White AWD EX Premium arrived

    Came in day before. They did not call me. I called next morning and told them we were coming in to get car. So that may be on me. They only had a lvl 2 charger. Was ok. I wanted to test anyway.

    Finally, Our Star White AWD EX Premium arrived

    We picked up car this afternoon. Too dark for pictures when we got home. Just as note. Our windshield/Roof is aligned perfectly. All body panels well aligned. There is one rear hatch gasket that is a little funky and will bear watching. Neither my wife nor I could detect any noise from the...
