Good morning,

I'm writing today requesting urgent help with my 2012 Ford Transit Connect electric from Azure Dynamics. I shot a short video in my garage explaining the issues I have with the vehicle not driving (despite a full charge on the battery) as well as some of the error codes thrown and visible in the Azure Dynamics diagnostic tool on my laptop. All these issues began when the vehicle "hiccuped" and skipped while driving around 15 miles per hour. For no reason, the car skipped and lurched forward, immediately shut off power with a Wrench symbol visible on the dashboard, and since then I only have about 1 MPH acceleration when pressing the accelerator pedal. Please view this YouTube video and comment below!

Thank you,
Conrad
I would suggest that you need to find and correct what is causing the ABS/Traction fault light. The ABS module is likely sending a command to the controller to limit motor torque. The popping sound you hear might be caused by a repetitive on/off control being sent to the motor and resulting gear chatter.

Zaxxon, please watch the most recent video in my post recent post above. There is no longer an ABS light or Traction control light. They were repaired by Dave Alef from Azure. I have no lights on the dash. Any other ideas about what might be rubbing under the car?

Here's the updated video I'm referring to:

So I am sure I understand. You can no longer go faster than 1 to 5 mph with the accelerator floored? The ABS and Traction lights did come on when the issue started? What was the cause given for the these fault lights and what was done to fix/remove?

If ABS/Traction control is not cause of issue. Based on the operation seen the issue might be related to the motor speed pickup or some issue with the inverter. Are you drawing a large amounts of current from the High voltage battery when trying to accelerate?

In your first video showing the diagnostic tool, Its looks like there are two modules showing red (Charger and WOC). Are they still showing red?

Please run diagnostic tool again and show videos showing all DTC codes and other troubleshooting and tab display screens for TM, Charger, WOC.

When in the Main DTC Tab, can you also show us what's on each of the sub tabs (VCU, TM Info Codes, ...........)

I am not sure what that noisy box is. Can you tell if its something to do with the electrical hydraulic steering? I see there is a fault indicated in the EHPAS/SASM Tab. Are there any issues with steering?
