Was this an error, or was your MME really unplugged?
oh it was really unplugged.

The Fusion Energi wasn't smart enough to do this. I was actually very pleasantly surprised (although I think there's been talk on here that I should have expected it).

fun thing I saw last night starting the car - it was too quick for me to get a picture - there was part of a GIANT Garmin logo that came up on part of the Sync screen (presumably, part that hadn't finished drawing yet). clearly that's coming from the navigation part starting up but it was interesting to see since I'm fairly certain that we're not supposed to see that :)

another few bits of stuff for my ongoing thread.

I haven't seen anyone mention that the FE wheel at least has a fake metallic look which is actually, for me at least, really pretty - it's in the surround of the buttons:

also - and this is documented but I missed it:

if you hold the cruise SET +/- toggle, the car will do what some other does and after a few MPH, it will start doing 5 MPH increments. (I don't know what it is in KPH. the manual just says "large increments".)

lastly today I was behind a woman doing 30 in a 35 for about 2 miles of residential no-passing zone with a line of unhappy people behind me... the zone changes to a 45 and I thought "well at least we'll get to 40" but nope, still 30. after another half mile or so, there's about 1/4 mile passing zone before no passing again because of an intersection. Because of oncoming traffic, not even the full 1/4 mile was open but... in this car, I was able to blast on by her and never even worried about it. as I said to my girlfriend telling this story to her, that's why I have a car with a pony on it. 😉

that's my answer for now. I really can't explain it. I was completely primed to hear it after all the back and forth on this site, and hearing it in the videos. But then I didn't and I thought, "ok, cool"... but now I do :(


you have no idea. Just ask Ernie.

this is a family forum (TM) thank you very much. 😂

that's common here too. Not sure what was going on there. too late now.

first excuse to buy a paint pen I guess. since it will be hidden behind the plate it doesn't have to look too great tbh.
So, apologies are in order. I tried one pedal today for the first time and all I could think of was "feather the pedal." It was the precise terminology and Levine is currently in the process of updating the manual.

Interesting. I didn't even know that was a thing. I haven't seen any extra for Connected Services yet, but I do still have an extra 22,000 points for some reason.

I got a few FordPass messages over the past few months and maybe one email saying "hey don't forget to do this by March 31 to get this bonus" - I think that was the date anyway.

22000 is for the car purchase. Less than an ICE car bc of the 250kwh charging also provided.

Right, but I spent the original 22,000 points within minutes of getting them. Then I got another 22,000 a week later. I don't know why.

Ahhh. Hmmm. I had 22k added and deleted - for what looks like my cancelled premium. Then another 22k added for the FE. All at or about the same time. Maybe u scammed the system!

I have a feeling it is somehow related to the fact that I spent the first round so quickly. It's almost like somebody (or a program) saw that my balance was zero and thought they forgot to give them to me.

Another update - doing my first EA session as I type this. Plug and Charge worked fine. It's cold here so the rate is subpar (56 at a 350). Two Teslas at the nearby Superchargers which is two more than usual.

The main EA app crashed on one of the stands. I politely rebooted it (it's Windows 10).

👍
Even at your temperature you should be getting better than 57 kW.
