I don't believe ground service check and GFCI are inherently in conflict. Manufacturers recommends avoiding GFCI receptacle for two reasons:
* Their ground service check in their product is low quality: it is implemented in a fashion that may sometimes (sometimes or always) leak too much...
Why is that bothering to you? The way Ford implements locking may make it a non-problem for you.
On my current Ford vehicle, front door (both driver and passenger) can be opened from inside with just one pull (the same action as if the car is unlocked) even if the car is locked. For the back...
Ah. This whole frunk divider development finally makes sense now. Here is goes:
In certain countries, there may be laws governing the opening mechanism of the frunk. That makes sense, it would be dangerous if it opens while driving.
This poses a dilemma on the emergency open button in the...
According to the manual, the key has a key blade in it. However, there is no mention of key hole anywhere. And it says:
How to unlock my vehicle if the 12 volt
battery is dead?
You must apply 12 volt power to the 12
volt system. See Jump Starting the
Vehicle (page 269).
It doesn't bother me...
The article is wrong. The SCE $1000 or PG&E $800 cannot stack with the new $1500 Clean Fuel Reward. Both SCE website and PG&E website are explicit about this. There is an existing thread specifically for this topic already at...
PG&E website says the following if you click the "Apply" button for the $800 Clean Fuel Rebate. So @VegStang is correct that one cannot get both even if one gets their car by 12/31. See below (emphasis mine).
The Clean Fuel Rebate program will be closing at the end of 2020. All...
Right now, the only Ford dealer in SF bay area is in Walnut Creek.
I don't see Serramonte Ford (Colma), Towne Ford (Redwood City), James Ford (Half Moon Bay), Sunnyvale Ford, Frontier Ford (Santa Clara), Capital Ford (San Jose), Fremont Ford, Livermore Ford, etc.
I hope they'll all join very soon.
You would have to run an extra wire for the neutral.
If I have to choose between 6-50P/14-50R adapter and a 14-50 receptacle with floating neutral. I'd pick the adapter without hesitation. With an adapter, it's obvious to you and to future owner/resident/electrician of your home what's going on.
Most EVSEs don't use the neutral pin in a 14-50 receptacle. Therefore, such an adapter is OK.
However, be aware that such an adapter could easily damage the appliance and/or lead to a dangerous situation because the neutral pin in the 14-50 receptacle provided by the adapter will be floating...
In addition to the voltage and current not being present in the plug until the handshake (between EVSE and car) completes successfully, all properly-certified EVSE have built-in GFCI support. GFCI stops the current when it detects current leakage (e.g. through your body to the ground, or through...
With the way California taxes car sales (and offer no trade in credit), I'm pretty confident that you'll pay sales tax on the entire msrp+destination.
I'm interested in the $2500 credit, but fully intend to keep the car beyond 3 years. So that's not a concern to me.
