My Aux Heater went bad - part FV6Z-18K463-D - 9000 miles. Judging by the lack of others with this issue, it appears to be a one off. Downside is the wrench went on and the part was on back order. Would be interested in seeing if this affects any others.

 

Car was OK to drive while the part came in.

Interesting, our wrench light came on recently and it prevents us from switching between ev modes while on. Its been cold here in NE Pa (10-20F). We've noticed it is taking about 15 miles for the heat to start wirking. At which time it appears it let's us use the EV modes again.

Mine has been going strong with the exact same weather conditions as silvertoy (since it appears we live in the same county - hi, neighbor). Are you using Go Times to preheat the car, and are those working as normal?

 

Is it kicking on the ICE to provide heat at the beginning of the drive, and that's how it's preventing you from switching EV modes?

Hello to you too neighbor. So our go times no longer works. If I try to preheat the car, ultimately it will kick on the engine, even while plugged into our 240V charger. Then the wrench light comes on and says EV is unavailable, eventually the engine warms things up, EV becomes available again, and if I force it to EV, ultimately the climate control gets cold again and locks out EV all over again.

Ah,actually, I just saw you're in Emmaus, we've moved to Dallas,PA since I first joined, 3 yrs ago. But we would have been neighbors ;) I need to update my profile.

I've got 30K miles on the car so far FYI. To the original poster, how did the fix work out?
