My buddy Ansy just picked up another used 2013 Ford Cmax, only 24k miles and it seems to have been driven by a lady on the ice the whole time. Trip 1 was not reset, showing 992 gallons burned and a very low mpg number of 24.6, not sure of the nature of how she drove, but that's related to her. The good news is that the HYB seems to be in very good shape, the bad news is that he discovered that the cigarette lighter on the console, and the one inside the storage box, as well as the lights in that area (around the cup holders) and lights for the heated seats are all out. Also the heated seats don't work.
Yes he can take it back to the dealer in CT and have them take a look, but its like a 2 1/2 hour drive, I thought to ask here if someone has any idea about this it would be great. I tried to check some fuses but did not find any that were broken. If you know which fuse is for that area, maybe I didn't check the right one. Other thought was that perhaps some wire harness is disconnected somewhere that supplies the power to that area, the cover for the fuse box is missing under the passenger side and it looked like someone in the past disconnected the 2nd big plug from the left on the fuse panel, the locking mechanism on it is broken.
Anyways, if anyone has any suggestions to try please speak up and thanks!
