It's getting cold, so I figured I'd try programming a "go time" to clear the windshield dew before I have to leave. It seems Ford engineers don't understand what their customers want and instead think they know better.
I do overnight charging with a "charge time start" to align with lower nighttime rates. I plugged it in at 10:00pm and it showed my start time correctly. Then I set a "go time" and it suddenly changed the start time and changed to "charging". WHAT????? I don't want it to charge now! I couldn't get it to change, so I unplugged it and figured I'd manually plug it in when I got up in the morning.
When I plugged it in in the morning, it started charging but had a warning in yellow on the screen "charge will not be 100% at Go Time". I didn't say I wanted 100% at go time and I don't want that. I want it to start charging when I say so and heat up at my Go Time. Why can't the car do what I tell it to? At least it worked to plug it in in the morning and have my Go Time setting run the defrost.
It seems the engineers assumed you always want the battery at 100% before your Go Time. I don't.
They also assume you want it at 100% at your charge end time regardless of your programmed start time. I don't.
Stupid engineers. (BTW: I am one)
