Great news about the charger being replaced, but I have been going back and forth to the dealer since 2014 over the engine light and wrench coming on and then going off after a series of stops and starts. The dealer told me they could find the code if the engine light was off. The other day the engine light came on just as I was going to have my oil change done at the dealership. After changing the oil the service folks told me the code was PODC9 and that they said to start the investigation of the issue I would have to buy a Ford Charger and stop using my aftermarket internet purchased charger.


I have all my service records dating back to 2014 on this issue with different codes and repair work done to no avail. The BECM was replaced a while ago, I thought it might be the octane (lol) it seemed to work for a while! Now, I'm heading for the dealership on Tuesday and I would like to know if anyone has experienced the same issue.


My thoughts are that I shouldnt use the extension cord with the charger, could this be causing the engine light and codes?


Thanks so much, appreciate all the comments

I use an extension cord with the charger all the time.  That doesn't cause any engine codes..

Quite a few of us use aftermarket charge cords with no issues.
