Is the little button at the center of the charge level indicator ring, used to lock and unlock the charge cord? If so does anyone know if there some sort of indication that lets you know if the cord is locked or not.Elsewhere under the hood and other hatches:
Also under the hood are a few key hatches.
The obvious filler tube is windshield washer fluid. Next two it are a couple of small panels, the port panel next to the windshield fluid seemed to access fuses and the starboard didn't open as readily so I didn't dig.
But then there's the big panel.
I popped off the panel between the Frunk and the windshield to check the access to some inner workings. It seems to be held in place by nine pop-clamps. It takes a patient effort to free them all to get the panel off.
Inside you find
On Port: 12v battery and brake fluid
On Starboard: Coolant? It seems to pressurize to 21 psi and has the color of most coolant.
Also a fancy silver box that seems to not want you to peek inside. I think there will be lots of those parts in the Mach E with do-not-touch electronics.
I confirmed what we already know: the tow hook panel on the front bumper isn't a tow hook panel at all. I definitely didn't see a tow hook stub in there. It does contain access to the red and black jumper cables to get you into the Frunk when the 12v battery is dead:
From the gauge of wire, they could be used for slow charging or maintenance charging but nothing fast. They must not be live to the battery when the battery is live as they are just sitting in there loose and uncovered. Definitely something to read about in the manual.
And there's the all important hatch to put the horsepower in:
Unlike my Leaf where you can only open the charging panel from a button inside or the fob, the Mach E's is like an unlocked gas cap panel. You push on the side opposite the hinge and it pops right open revealing the J-1772 connector:
With the magnetic panel keeping the DC connectors clean that rounds out the CCS Combo connector:
Next up, the hatch.
Looks like the little indicator lights inside the charge port door circle when locked. Check out the 10:00 mark...Is the little button at the center of the charge level indicator ring, used to lock and unlock the charge cord?

Actually there have been cases ofJust make sure the dog keeps its mask On over mouth and nose.
Lots more room than our Leaf, more room than the Prius we used to have. probably similar Space to Nissan Rogue but doesn’t feel as chunky. I’ll know more once I drive it.
Hi Mach e people... Thanks for your interest. The canine friend is a Boxer 24 in tall. It is best by far to make the cargo area the special place just for a dog. A basic SUV dog barrier works well. Pads all around provide a little safety. The dog gets used to riding back there. Makes for a happy trip, all around.How big is the dog?
I dont personally know of a vehicle that is close but I have to say it is slightly smaller than a Honda CRV (last five years models). Its the right size for me at this time in my life. The trunk with the floor in the lower positions works to be decent size. Personally I thought it to be more like a raised family sedan like say an accord, Mazd6 - something like that.Lots more room than our Leaf, more room than the Prius we used to have. probably similar Space to Nissan Rogue but doesn’t feel as chunky. I’ll know more once I drive it.
Despite lower ground clearance, seat height feels higher than the Leaf - very comfortable.
Feels like it’s going to have a wide turning radius with that Mustang-length wheelbase.
Supposedly the light indicates lock/unlock status per the Ford rep that explained the buttons to me.Is the little button at the center of the charge level indicator ring, used to lock and unlock the charge cord?
