It sounds like a replacement charger is in order. I got a mailing about this one. It does both level one and level two charging, and has a 3 year warranty:
Hopefully it lasts longer than the OE unit! (I'm not on good terms with the significant other, otherwise I would ask her about hers).
Thanks. I have seen them as low as $215 for a level 2 N 10-30. Both the duosida and esubar brands. I know nothing about their reliability. http://www.ebay.com/...738.m2548.l4275
I don't know why I have two charge cords fail. Certainly seems worth harping on though if only to document a premature part failure that SHOULD last the life of the vehicle. If someone else experiences this perhaps this will help them.
If Ford replaced it again after less than two years, I will post it.
If I have to buy a new one because this fails completely in less than two years I will let you know what I go with and post a performance review.
If anyone has tried one of the cheaper level 2 chargers and can post feedback that would be great.
If I was looking to buy a C max I would like to know that some charge cord are failing in less than two years of usage and the dealer wants $500-$700 for a new one.
Yes certainly crap happens. I am sorry your cable was stolen Raja. A stolen cable doesn't seem to be a generous nor particularly thoughtful comparison to a cable that fails prematurely.
Raja, you have posted over 3000 times here, many of them thoughtful posts trying to educate Cmax owners on HVB usage to prolong battery life.
Thus, it is hard to understand the snarky irritation caused by my posting and documenting the MFM notifications of successive charge faults on my vehicle.
The rational albeit cynical explanation would have me suspect employment by Ford in a social media and information capacity, but since that is cynical I will accept that you are just passionate about the car (as many of us are).
Since you have been so thoughtful and passionate in you numerous post perhaps you can allow me to post information that is important to me with the condescension in your responses.
I appreciate your informative insights, but it is lost when you come across as irritated and authoritative. Peace.
