And where is the push to require noise emitters on bicycles, which are far quieter than even the stealthiest EV and just as potentially dangerous at high speed
Momentum = mass x velocity

A Mach-E is two orders of magnitude more massive than a bicycle. Even if it's going relatively slowly, it'll do more damage to a pedestrian than a bicycle.

I know it is a requirement, but they could have changed it a bit. For example the KIA Sorento hybrid has a more acceptable beeping IMO.

Good grief. Have you heard the beeping on trash trucks? Relatively speaking, I think Ford gave us a pretty decent V1.0 backup beep. Perhaps, in an OTA, they’ll give us a menu of backup beeps to select from. Hopefully, “obnoxious garbage truck beep” will be one of them. If so, I will take great delight in spending as much time in reverse in my neighborhood as possible (many of my neighbors are morons and deserve it 😀)

I too could enjoy that. And would use it in crowded parking lots. Just not at my own house when the kids are sleeping.

Once the robot revolution begins they will purposefully not alert you to humans, sight impaired or otherwise. The backup tone is just the Gov’t planning ahead. It’s their strong suit.
just use one of these and you should be fine.

I don’t know if I’m more grossed out by the flagrant disregard for people with disabilities or the fact that @GoGoGadgetMachE uses Bing
What does message board virtue signaling feel like? I imagine it’s like a sip of warm hot chocolate while snuggling a puppy. Is that about right?
Whatever, guys.

I use Bing also. Because it's better for Googling things. It's not a "virtue signal" or any other pejorative neologism.

I'm also not ashamed to admit that my puppy training skills aren't good enough for me to simultaneously snuggle a puppy and prevent it from stealing nearby hot chocolate. Besides, keep the chocolate away from the dog. ;)

Great now I’ve gotta leave my irc chat to fire up Netscape and ask Jeeves what a pejorative neolugey is. This will take a minute on my P90.

let me summarize: "I'm annoyed by a federally mandated noise so screw blind people; you can hack in a resistor to bypass all that pesky safety nonsense or shove in some kind of blocker. It's all about me, me, me!"
Don't treat us like criminals. :confused:

I also wonder what your profile pic means? I hope you know that it is also a crime to put down the Horse badge from a Mach E? Because the Mach E is truly a Mustang. 😏

Okay, enough jokes. I understand that the pedestrian warning noise is law and for safety reasons. and that’s absolutely right. But I was hoping to find a solution to put off that awful Beeping noise. I mean c'mon is the MME an industrial vehicle or what?

Yeah I see your avatar, mister @xXCheXx. Really troubling to see this police vs "not" post police @GoGoGadgetMachE tension here in our beautiful Mustang community.

🙊😭😝

Wish they had just stuck with the low growl forwards and backwards. Then this whole thread wouldn’t exist.

I admit the sentence was a bit out of place. I didn't mean to offend anyone with it. ✌
let's forget the whole thing, I think there has been enough arguing about this topic. Let's close the thread, okay?

Okay, I tried a resistor and it works as expected.

Disclaimer: The following information is for proof-of-concept purposes only. I do not recommend or endorse disabling any safety feature in this or any other vehicle. Do not operate your MME on public roads with the pedestrian warning sound disabled.

I was going to try some different resistors to see what would work. The first one I tried was a 5W 4.7 ohm, and it worked fine, so I didn't try any others. The connectors for the speaker wire slide right off the posts, and the resistor wire can be threaded through the holes in the posts, wrapped around, and crimped with pliers. I drove around for a bit (on a private closed course) in silence and then felt the resistor to make sure it remained cool to the touch, which it did.

how cool would it be if we had a choice of various 'exhaust' systems at a low idle. A big-cam small block rumble one day, smooth v-10 purr the next.....

Being the bleeding heart, tree hugging, ultra-left wing libtard that I am, I’m not sure I like this (won’t someone think of the children? 😀)
Actually, I just don’t want to see anyone get sued by little Suzie’s mommy and further gum up an already overburdened court system (for which I pay with my tax dollars!)
