  1. Ford BMS Battery Monitoring System: How it Works, How to Properly Charge, How to Power Accessories

    Without discounting the possibility that your H6 is indeed shot, you might try verifying that you have all OTA updates and restore your SOC to 80%. You may well find that your problems are solved. In reading through the thread, my theory is that folks have been monkeying around with SOC...
  2. Ford BMS Battery Monitoring System: How it Works, How to Properly Charge, How to Power Accessories

    So it seems clear that Ford actually solved the problem properly. Good news.
  3. Ford BMS Battery Monitoring System: How it Works, How to Properly Charge, How to Power Accessories

    I agree in all respects, particularly that Ford was/is compelled to find a happy medium which in all likelihood satisfies no one. The corollary is that it’s almost certainly true that there is a set of parameters which would be “more optimal” for any particular given owner. Unfortunately...
  4. Ford BMS Battery Monitoring System: How it Works, How to Properly Charge, How to Power Accessories

    Just to repeat myself a bit - especially for those who are tweaking the Target SOC value using Forscan, be aware of the Law of Unintended Consequences. As an engineer myself, I can safely say that virtually every design parameter represents a trade-off of some sort. In this case, it is unlikely...
  5. Recent Cruise Control "update" is a safety hazard - how do you submit feedback to Ford?

    Here’s how my ‘22 non-BC truck works (I experimented with it extensively to verify, YMMV): - thumb the cruise control button and the truck picks up the current speed and sets the cruise to that value. (I have not seen it do anything different when accelerating). - when I thumb the switch to set...
  6. CAI for Powerboost?

    Okay, I’ll bite - what is “CAI”? Unless your post is meant only for the cognizant who will of course instantly recognize the term…
  7. OTA update wiped tune

    I don't think that helps. OTAs generally come over the cellular connection. Supposedly, enabling wifi only makes OTAs quicker, but there's not a lot of evidence at least on the forums that Ford actually uses the wifi connection even if it's available. Furthermore, I believe that "disabling"...
  8. Tunes are getting erased by Ford

    I mentioned in the other thread that the ability to do firmware updates OTA has become like a drug to manufacturers. They cannot resist the urge to constantly monkey around with the system. It's gotten to the point where the engineers are, ahem, "encouraged" to release updates and bug fixes...
  9. OTA update wiped tune

    It’s just speculation on my part, but it would not surprise me if it turns out that this method, which worked fine this time, leads to all kinds of trouble with some future OTA update. Just because it worked fine this time is no guarantee it will next time. Remember, there are often many many...
  10. OTA update wiped tune

    Even worse, the layman’s description of each update is insultingly dumb, “Great news! We’re making your truck run better!”
  11. OTA update wiped tune

    Unfortunately, the ability to go to OTA updates has become kind of an addictive drug for e.g. the car companies. “Let’s release this feature/uodate/bug fix to production before it’s really wrung out and we can fix it with an OTA update later.” Testing and validation of complex hw/sw systems is...
  12. Bike Rack Setups - Show Yours!

    Things may have changed but as I recall Yakima stff was more expensive than either Thule or Rhino. As far as I'm concerned, Rhino and Yakima are more-or-less equivalent. I can't recall the details, but there was something functional about the Thule that placed it a step lower in my eyes than...
  13. Bike Rack Setups - Show Yours!

    LOL! That’s kinda the nature of a tandem, eh? We don’t call ‘em long bikes for nuthin’.
  14. Bike Rack Setups - Show Yours!

    See my post below for the parts I used. I went with Rhino Rack for no particular reason. Near as I can tell they are more-or-less equivalents.
  15. Bike Rack Setups - Show Yours!

    Yes. I used the following parts, all from Rack Attack: 1. Rhino rack Vortex bars - 71” RRVA180B 2. Rhino rack Quick Mount leg - RRRLT600 3. Rhino rack Wuick Mount heavy duty spacer 20mm - RRQMHD20 The 20mm spacer is key, since it raises the rack just enough that the handle on the RetraxPro XR...
  16. Bike Rack Setups - Show Yours!

    Our bike goes on a Rhino Rack which fits into T-slot rails on our tonneau.
  17. AC Stopped Working - Brand New 2023 F-150 Lariat

    At least that's the fantasy world version of how one might imagine it's supposed to work. It's going to the dealer in a few weeks - we'll see if they can talk some sense into my truck because it's living in a world of its own ... nothing like the fantasy world you described.
  18. A different kind of A/C problem (too cold)

    I've begun to suspect that there's a problem with the climate control in my '22 XLT. - in auto mode, it frequently turns on the A/C, even on cool/cold days. Nothing like a refreshing blast of cold air on a cool or cold but dry day. - the temperature knob seems to be there solely to keep me...
  19. Persistent Phantom Notification

    It's ironic, isn't it, that an update intended to resolve connectivity issues should itself have such problems.
  20. Pedestrian Sounder

    I have a '22 PB. I'm getting older so maybe my hearing is fading a bit, but I haven't heard, or noticed hearing, this sounder. Although I can clearly hear the backup chime. Is it possible that this thing is louder on some trucks than others? Or perhaps the dealer toned it down using Forscan...
