  1. The truck won't charge... again.

    It sounds like corrupted location profiles. An update a few months back corrupted mine and it did whacky things. If the location profiles are intact and it thinks it is outside of the location profile GPS area it should start charging right away. I'd follow @TaxmanHog's direction and delete...
  2. The truck won't charge... again.

    You might also check the time/timezone settings on the Emporia and the truck. An update a few weeks back took out the settings on my truck and turned off the automatic time set feature. I had to turn it back on to get back on schedule. Perhaps the Emporia has similar time/timezone settings...
  3. Gateway Module replacement

    I believe the gateway module is behind the rear seats. It would likely be a quick physical change but there may be a series of updates that needs to happen to activate it. I expect they are a bit nervous about giving you a timeline due to the length of time it can take to get through the...
  4. The truck won't charge... again.

    It's odd that you don't have a "Charge to 100%" option. That would seem to be the EVSE telling the truck not to charge. Do you have any settings in your Emporia charger that would limit when the truck can charge? Maybe reset the Emporia EVSE back to factory settings and see if it works then...
  5. 285 75 18 Nitto A/T tires on my 2022 Lariat ER

    I don't have that much faith in the range calculator in NAV and even less faith in the GOM ;-). In theory, it should work that way after the truck adjusts to the new "driving" conditions. In practice, I'm not sure it will but let us know how it does. I think you can correct the...
  6. Charging failure, repeated

    I've had this happen a few times in the last 18 months. In most cases, I've reset the EVSE to clear it's brains (breaker off-on or unplug re-plug). That usually solves it. It was likely the communication module on the EVSE was hung up. Try cleaning your contact socket/pins on the truck and...
  7. 285 75 18 Nitto A/T tires on my 2022 Lariat ER

    The hit probably isn't as bad as it seems. About 8.4% of the apparent range hit is the tire size. You'll cover more ground for every rotation but that won't show on your gauges unless you do a speedo/odometer correction. that probably means you are 15-16% actual range hit primarily from the...
  8. Wireless CarPlay intermittently has no sound

    I've used CarPlay for over a year occasionally needing to toggle off/on in iOS settings but then it stopped connecting wirelessly altogether. I can still connect by wire but it's frustrating that I can't connect wirelessly anymore. I've done the "Forget Device" thing and removed the phone from...
  9. Of what use is Off-Road display of steering angle, tilt or yaw?, pitch?

    The display is only important if you are doing serious off-roading. It can be quite useful in those situations. The steering angle is useful in really deep snow. Otherwise, it's just a cool gadget the truck can show since it has all of the sensors for stability control anyway.
  10. Running the Battery to 0%

    When planning a flight we plan for our destination and an alternative should the destination be untenable.... I've simply transferred that method to driving EVs. I plan to stop a bit earlier with a known backup plan that I can still reach. It's happened twice in 20 months where my chargers...
  11. Diamondback SE hard tonneau cover installed!

    Well worth the investment. I've had both SE and HD versions. SE is awesome and easy to take on/off with one person. HD is a fair bit heavier and one person can still take it on/off. The panels are about 50lbs each. It can carry 1600lbs on top. There are two minor advantages of the HD -...
  12. What is your SOH? Milage? and how do you use your Battery?

    You can see your SOH go up in some cases. If you charge to 100%, drive down to about 10-20% and L2 charge to above 80% again, it will balance the pack a bit and recalculate the health based on the more accurate numbers. This can result in SOH increasing because your pack actually improves...
  13. Most important Lightning secret: how to release a stuck charger cable

    In my case, it just snapped back onto the clip when I used it. Reattaching was pretty straightforward. It took a bit of a wiggle. I also was glad I read a post on this forum on this before I needed it. ;)
  14. What SOC level does the Lightning start limiting throttle?

    95% in coolish weather if normal until the battery pack warms a bit. I've noticed this is pretty consistent if the battery pack is cold-soaked below 60°F but it warms up in 5-10 minutes of driving. I noticed this more especially after the BECM software update. In your case, did you have a...
  15. I need info on home charging

    One other consideration - If you have Time of Use electricity rates, there is a cost differential depending how long you need to be plugged in. If you push into the higher TOU rates, it may make sense to consider the electrical upgrade to keep you in the low TOU. For me, this was significant...
  16. Reduced Power after update

    Thx, this is good to know. I'll add this to my list of tricks for the Lightning if the symptoms are persistent.
  17. Reduced Power after update

    Just curious if you got back to 100% after a while?
  18. Advice on New Lightning - 2023 XLT or 2023 Lariat Extended Range

    I've driven both but I like the Lariat better for all the additional features. It seems worth the $8k to me to step up however that is very much a personal choice. I have the moonroof on my Lariat and love it. XLTs tend to have slightly lower depreciation rates if you look at it from a total...
  19. Advice on New Lightning - 2023 XLT or 2023 Lariat Extended Range

    How does Comma 3X compare to Bluecruise? Interesting dynamics in this space.
  20. Had to call for a fob to start the Lightning

    I've come to the conclusion that Ford does OTA updates while the truck is running which sometimes temporarily kills PaaK. If you are on a longer run of 10 minutes or more, sometimes the truck will complain that there is no key after you are moving and it goes away after a few minutes (I assume...
