With my previous Chevy Volt you could override the time programmed charging schedule by plugging in the charge cable then quickly removing it and plugging it in again.  That would tell the car to immediately charge.  

 

I can't find any way to do the same thing with the CMax.  There are some times I want to charge during peak periods when at home, but I can't find a way to conveniently do this.

MyFordMobile or via Sync is the only way that I am aware of.

MFM only successfully connects maybe 1 time out of 4, with no rhyme or reason when.  That's not very useful.

 

 Is there simple way in Sync to override for just one time?

On my 2013 you can tap the leaves on the bottom of the main screen, then Settings, and there's a "Charge Now" button.

Yep, just change it from the settings screen.  and if the car isn't on, you can just press the power button on the Sync system to turn it on so you can change it.

Is that the same button that turns the audio on or off?
