25 MPH is awesome for EV travel even up a steep hill.

Make sure the EZ Exit is activated for the passenger seat.  It makes it much easier to get in and out of the FFH.

Set the left screen to Engage.  I feel it gives the clearest info on the operation of the ICE/EV modes.  Others will say EMPOWER  is better.

Keep one of the special cloths for cleaning electronic screens in the center console.

Prepare a flashdrive with all your favorite music to plug into the USB port.

Read the owner's manual, twice.

Consider getting air struts for the engine hood.  They are easy to install and add more "class" to the car, as does adding the illuminated door sills.

 

Thanks

Question: easy exit for the passenger - I didn't see that in any options/menus. Where is it.

I have the driver seat on ee but not passenger.

 

Time to RTFM, again.

 

I have tried Empower and Engage (on;y 220 km at this point, mind you), I think I [refer Engage, but I can see the value of Empower for figuring out gas pedal pressure/use.

Easy entry/exit is only for the driver's seat.

Yep, the 12 or 16 way power seat for the passenger is only available in the Lincoln, I think, and the Easy Exit might not even be available for the passenger there.

 

I use a custom display (MyView) with the Empower on the left side of the window and DTE on the right.

Mine's a 2014, but the key fob to Driver selector is obviously an overlooked part of the Owner's Manual.  According to mine - Like most vehicles, get it all set up, hold the selector button, till the beep, continue holding to the next beep, and then hit the lock on the remote you wish to program to that number.

 

Worked on mine.

Wow.  Excellent info.

Just one question: After you DO that, will it automatically recognize which remote is in use.......even without using the remote to unlock the doors ?  If so, that would be GREAT......since you really don't need to use the remote to unlock with the "handle touch" system.

If you personalize an IA fob to your likes, seat adjustment and mirror adjustment, when you push the Start button the seat will move into position and so will the mirrors.  When you turn the car off the seat will move back to allow an easier exit from the car.  If the IA fob is #1, then the first door code will do the same thing.

But my question is:  Do you merely have to have the FOB in your possession for that to work OR do you have to actually have to use it to unlock the doors ??

 

(And sorry but it just isn't coming to me: what is an "IA" FOB ?)

No button pushing.  It's all automatic.

 

Interactive Access Key Fob.

 

When you touch the door handle the car sends out a low frequency signal.

The FOB responds with a VHF signal giving its serial number.

The car checks its stored list of fobs and if there is a match the car is unlocked.  The position of the serial number in the car's table determines what the key fob number is.  The car can have a maximum of 4 IA fobs.

And, at least for Energi & Electric models the dominant fob is number 2. When both fobs are in the car the car must decide which is dominant for starting and adjusting seats.

Okay, Murphy, fess up. Are you a Ford engineer and do you perhaps share an office with Waldo?  ;)

No but I did work for Philco-Ford back in the 60s when Ford bought Philco.  In 1969 they shut down Philco-Ford and I was out of a job.

 

I know how the IA Fob works because I took the FCC registration number, that is inside of the fob, and looked it up on the FCC website.
