Ford Edge battery/Failing voltage regulator/charging system diagnostics on two 2011s

I recently purchased the SOLAR BA7 battery and charging system tester. (Link Below) I have been having battery issues with one 2011 Ford Edge Limited without remote start. The battery registered as weak and had some strange charging lights that I will have to work on and see if it is just the battery or if the issues are deeper than just a bad battery. The other 2011 Ford Edge limited with push button start and remote start had no issues and check out great. I also tested the battery on a 2011 Toyota mini van and it failed all the tests and registered as bad, which is what I thought it would do. It is the mini van for my church and was just helping out.

Ford Ranger EV Charging with AVCON connection (plus thermal video)

I charge the Ford Ranger EV for the first time. This 1998 OEM factory-built electric truck used an AVCON charging connection. It’s similar to what we use now, the J1772 “J-Plug”, only it’s boxier and rectangular. Fortunately, some EV charging equipment was included with the truck! As best I can tell, the AVCON charging system was just an earlier version of our current J1772, so it should be no problem to build a simple adapter for charging at public charging stations!

The truck charges at up to 6,000 watts.
I also got out my thermal camera and filmed the heat signature of the charger while it was running.

While the company, Avcon, is no longer in business, it was originally in Franklin, Wisconsin – about 35 miles from where I live!

I used a FLIR brand phone attachment thermal camera in this video:

Ford Mustang GT BULLITT Wont Start! | Best Car Battery CHARGER

Today we tried to start up the 2008 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt with no success, but thanks to the help of the Ship N Shore Speed Charge car battery charger we where able to start it up and get it running. The Mustang Bullitt was sitting in my garage for almost 3 weeks without any attempts to start it, but since I finally got the registration done on the car, I will start to use it much more often. No, my Dodge Challenger SRT 8 has not been sold yet, but hopefully it will be very soon.



2012 Chevrolet Volt High Voltage Battery Charging

Weber State University (WSU) – Automotive Technology Department – Advanced Vehicle Systems Lab. A brief description of the 360V Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery charging procedures for the 2012 Chevrolet Volt Extended Range Vehicle. This vehicle combines an Electric Vehicle (EV) for trips 25-52 miles in length with a gasoline powered generator (40 mpg+) for trips with no length restrictions.

There are several battery charging options available for the Volt:
1. LEVEL 1 CHARGER: The 120V charger that comes with the vehicle, just plug it in to a power socket in your garage; it can take up to 10 hours to charge a fully depleted battery.
1. LEVEL 2 CHARGER: The 208V – 240V charger that you must purchase separately. These chargers must be professionally installed. There are federal tax credits for the chargers. These chargers can take 4.75 hours on 240V or 4.5 hours on 208V to charge a fully depleted battery. Chevrolet Volt charger options can be found at

Be aware that some chargers are only for the Chevrolet Volt (15 Amps) and others support the Society of Automotive Engineers SAE J1772 standard which will charge many different electric vehicles (15 – 30 Amps) including the Chevrolet Volt, Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus EV, Toyota Prius PHV and RAV4 EV, Honda Fit EV, Tesla Vehicles, and etc.
