1100Re: [force_ev] More Drive System Problems
- Jan 4, 2005My 99 Force makes this noise when regenerating in the first couple of
miles after a full charge. My battery monitor shows that some
batteries go way overvoltage during that screeching regen, so I think
it's not a good thing. I turn off regen during the first two miles
if I have a downhill stretch or must make a quick stop.
