    Ford financing nightmare?

    The service plan is a Ford plan. Its only honored at ford dealerships. It doesn't cover 100% of what the bumper to bumper warranty covers, but it is almost everything. Yes it does cost money, but its extending the coverage period of the warranty. It works just like the warranty does. Drop it off...

    Have you Received OTA 2.3.0?

    You'll get a notice in FordPass after an update to tell you what version it was. That notice will show in the car for a while after an update as well when you check for an update. Sometimes it will stick until the next update, but other times it might disappear randomly and go back to up to...

    Their fix also made my cars picture show back up in the EA account as well.

    SSM 50213 - FordPass App Frunk Button - Failure To Open Message

    My guess is they want to enable the frunk and bluecruise for everyone around the same time. Plus with how dealers have been handling the current set of updates, you have a high chance they wouldn't even install what is required anyway.

    SSM 50213 - FordPass App Frunk Button - Failure To Open Message

    All OTA updates got pushed back due to an issue they found in the deployment process. And none of the updates released to dealers enables the button yet. At this point, I'd expect it to start coming out in the next month or two.

    SSM 50213 - FordPass App Frunk Button - Failure To Open Message

    The update has not come yet. Nothing a dealer can do.

    Ford financing nightmare?

    You are confusing the Service Plan with a maintenance plan. The Premium Care plan he has a contract for is extending the factory warranty to 6 years 100,000 miles with a $100 deductible. At $5000 it is not worth it, but at $1500 it may be for OP. I've had it on several of my Ford's and its...

    Flat-conveyer car wash = N+L?

    Good to know. I never had an issue with it, but I also don't actually use the brake pedal much either. haha

    Flat-conveyer car wash = N+L?

    Is this only if you use Auto Hold and 1PD off? I have auto hold but use 1PD, and just have to put it in neutral for it to roll freely.

    obd2 scanners

    There are no phone apps that can make changes. There is a windows application called "Forscan" that can make configuration changes though. Another is UCDS, but it costs money.

    Ford financing nightmare?

    If your car is totaled, and they decide its worth less than you owe, GAP coverage pays for the difference so you're not on the hook for it. Traditionally new cars lost considerable value as soon as you buy it. Combined that with the longer financing that is offered can put you underwater as...

    More early adopter fun... Joining the 12V club

    If you're not getting any errors or notices in the car, I'd say you're OK. The car absolutely freaks out with tons of errors if the 12v is actually low. Do you have any accessories or anything plugged in inside the car that might be pulling power higher than the car is expecting?

    There is another thread about the 12v battery, and there is multiple people that have had the notification while getting PPF/Ceramic/Tinting done.

    You should ignore this if your car is being worked on. It is a false alarm.

    More early adopter fun... Joining the 12V club

    Its very common to get this while you're car is getting worked on. They are working with the doors open for long periods of time with the lights on which likely trips the power saving feature of the car. Both times I had my cars in for PPF and Ceramic coating, I got this notice because the doors...

    Ford financing nightmare?

    This is from the Flood Ford ESP page, but its the same at any dealer. I believe you do have to cancel through the dealer you ordered it from though. Can I cancel my Ford Protect Contract? Yes. For most states if you cancel within 30 days and no services have been rendered you can receive a full...

    Ford financing nightmare?

    I'll tell you right now, don't do that service contract. You can buy it yourself online for much cheaper. Any more than this is 100% profit for your dealer.

    Start car Mach-E video animation

    Its possible they may add it in later. Ford usually has different boot animations for various models. Like my last car, a Ford Edge ST, and it had an ST boot animation instead of the normal Ford one.
