Service Brakes Ford 2013
The Regenerative Braking Will Cut Out Under Specific Circumstances And The Car Will Feel Like It Is Lurching Forward Instead Of Slowing Down. The Situation Is: Braking Using Only Regen Brakes, No Friction Brakes; Steady Pedal Pressure; Going 15-20 Mph; Turning The Steering Wheel At Least 90 Degrees Left Or Right; Driving On Smooth Pavement. Data I Have Logged From The Sobdmc Indicates That The Traction Motor Briefly Reduces Its Negative Torque Which Causes The Car To Surge Forward. In One Instance That I Logged The Negative Torque Shows Around 48 Ft-lbs And Then Suddenly Drops To About 8 Ft-lbs. The Traction Motor Then Gradually Increases Torque Back To The Appropriate Level. In Another Instance The Negative Torque Suddenly Went From About 28 Ft-lbs To 8 Ft-lbs. The Drop In Torque Occurs In 1/10 Of One Second Per My Logged Data. It Takes About 2.5-3.0 Seconds For The Traction Motor To Return To The Appropriate Level Of Negative Torque To Stop The Vehicle. This Behavior Began Occurring Right After Our Vehicle Was serviced By A Local ford Dealership. The Work Done By The ford Dealership Included Replacing The 12v Battery & 3 Recalls: 14s21, 15e03 & 15s14. I Believe That This service Is Responsible For These Problems, As This Issue Was Not Present Before Our Car Went To The Dealership.
