    2020 Ford GT battery DEAD: HELP

    Battery replacement, $980 retail price and 270 battery installation. Yeah, $1250 to replace a battery. All at three years and TWO DAMN months beyond warranty, despite being in the shop for warranty work for six months. But, very low cost to add a charging connector in rear, which I velcroed to...

    Meteorite. Came straight down on me. Or a parabolic throw from a vehicle in the slow lane.

    Oh yes, right thru it. Have several minor pits that the film may have saved the windshield.

    2020 Ford GT battery DEAD: HELP

    I do not know how your trunk cigarette port in the storage space is connected nor if it can carry the 7 amps I found needed to energize car and get door locks and window opening to occur. I do not have the port in my car and I have a lower current battery maintainer. Your port may be fused to...

    2020 Ford GT battery DEAD: HELP

    A 2020 should have a power port in the back (https://www.fordgtforum.com/forums/threads/dead-battery.37310/#lg=attachment60950&slide=0). Connect charger, boost and hope that it can provide the ~7 amps needed to blink lights on and energize the car. If not enough current like old chargers car...

    Dead battery?

    “Yes, but it is a "backup to the backup" just in case....” And what if it is parked at the mall, and it might rain? Windows open and frunk released? It needs a high current terminal access in the rear and a battery booster stored in there. I will be looking into that.

    Dead battery?

    Where in the back? On the “old ones (2017)” too? Can it carry the 7+ amps to get the car to life?

    No, you are wrong. I am sure that there are four shock absorbers. And you should know that.

    Heads-up on OEM Shock Replacements

    I just installed 4 new Ahlman shocks today and I think I set a record: Four smashed bloody knuckles or finger segments! That’s only one per shock!

    Car wash advice

    Open the back engine cover, in the place where it’s being washed and cover vent exposed engine with large towel. Close cover. I use a foam gun, cuts dirt nicely, with lower pressure electric pressure washer, kept at a distance from the car. Never power wash windshield if you have clearplex...

    How low can you go?

    How low can you go?

    Fuel capacity is 15.2 gallons but the fuel gauge and remaining miles display is set for 13 gallons. This was done to keep the fuel pump happy while racing and turning that the last two gallons are not sloshing around and creating fuel starvation (from an earlier post)...
