Hi all. I’m just popping in to give a quick update and ask a couple questions.
Why does my car power steering not work sometimes when power on? The first time this happened a couple three weeks ago the car powered on then said have power steering serviced. Extremely hard to turn wheel. I shut car down. Power on again and it’s fine. This happened again tonight but without the check power steering message. Power car off then on and it worked. Maybe you forgot to step on the brake petal and ended up in Accessory Mode.
How do I get my car to stop the service mobility tire message every time I power the car on? I’m never going to use it. So I couldn’t care less and it drives me bonkers having to hit ok every single time I power the car on. This just started within last couple days or even today . Go here to make it go away. http://fordcmaxhybri...e-mobility-kit/
And an update on my MPG. Well I reset my lifetime summary about 3 weeks or slightly less after I bought my cmax. I have filled it twice only and that was since sometime in April maybe. The Empower screen shows 44.8 avg MPG. Is that from when I got gas the last time since I reset the trip meter thing or is that since I reset the lifetime summary? And is that pretty good?
Do you reset your #1 trip gauge and Tank Average on Empower Screen every time you fill up? If not it is the average for the last time it was reset. I haven't reset my #2 trip for about two years.
Tonight I just got home from Enumclaw Washington. I live in Burien Wa. Takes about 55-60 minutes. About half off freeway and then half on I-5 north when going home. Tonight when I got home it said 52 MPG. I’m getting numbers much much better then you guys could remember when I first got it and started asking some questions in here.
I’m using cruise more and notice it seems to do an ok job now. I have a question. When cruise is on, a lot of times the screen shows Charging Battery. While I’m driving. Sometimes it says Hybrid. Which is better? Better mileage? Of course it runs in EV a lot to and I know that’s off the battery. I don't know if you watched my You Tube Videos (http://fordcmaxhybri...mileage/page-1 You get the Best MPG's when you drive the car, but ECO Cruise does a pretty good job.
Anyway. Thank you all so very much for everything and being kind and gentle with me. I truly appreciate all of you so so much.
