Re: Yellow spanner warning light

Dozens of reasons the spanner light can come on and you will have a trouble code set in the ECU. Do you remember the fault message on the display? Poor show by the dealer not diagnosing properly.

Not surprised. Poor show by the dealer from the sounds of it.

Re: New Etis software update showing "ACM"

The charge is the other way round. The dealer charges Ford for the time spent on the car. So a quick ECM update might take 30 mins at what, £90+ per hour dealer rates? That's why the dealer will only perform updates they can charge back (investigating a customer complaint). But like I said before co...

Re: New Etis software update showing "ACM"

Any fixes regarding safety will be managed as recall notifications so don't worry about those. Applying bug fixes will depend on whether you've experienced the bug. It's simple economics.

Re: Sshh. Deep Sleep.

Recording the voltage during your drive is not much use. Better to record the voltage each side of your journey :- Time since last engine off, voltage, driving time, voltage To the nearest 15 minutes will be ok and always take voltage readings with ignition on but engine off. Puts some loads on like...

Re: Sshh. Deep Sleep.

No, you should mash the throttle whenever you can and enjoy the car. Let the software strategy worry about the 48 volt battery state of charge :lol:

Re: Sshh. Deep Sleep.

The DC/DC converter is always converting 48 to 12 volt power. During acceleration (generator acting as a motor) the 48 volt battery powers both the motor and DC/DC converter and the 48 volt battery will be depleted. Lift off the accelerator pedal and the generator switches back to being a generator,...

Re: Sshh. Deep Sleep.

The dealer were very clear that sitting with the clutch in doesn't charge the battery. Bit then everything else they told me was wrong... Dealer is wrong. Both batteries can still be charged with clutch pressed. 12 volt battery is always charged whilst engine is running irrespective of clutch posit...

Re: Sshh. Deep Sleep.

If you're not charging the 48v battery you're not charging the 12v battery..... It's all in the regen. Sounds good, but it's not true :ugeek: The 12 volt battery is always being charged whilst the engine is running. During regenerative breaking, accelerating, idling. It is even charged during start...

Re: Sshh. Deep Sleep.

You're suggesting that locking the car remotely with the app has enabled some, until then, unused functionality which is now keeping the car awake and draining the battery. I like the theory. Does etis show any updates available for the tcu?
