Check out the horsepower readings in the right hand display, lower right corner.

Idleing = 7.9hp.
Accelerating = 25.6 hp.
cruising = 13.7hp.

Good question! Something about a closed loop, and amp output/storage. There is also a fWATT reading, is that the usage? :confused:

Look for the AMP figures. When it is a large number like 1485 or so, the hybrid battery is being "charged". When the number is low--I have go as high as 67 amps--the vehicle is using electric power assist either alone or with the gasoline engine.

The FWT reading refers to the coolant temperature in the "main" radiator for the ICE. Yes, the Hybrid has more than one radiator. The closed loop refers to the "system" in which the oxygen sensors in the exhaust are providing feedback to the engine control module (computer) in an attempt to control fuel dump at the fuel injectors. The SOC refers to the "state of charge" of the hybrid battery. Ford designed the SOC range between 40-60%---it likes to hang around 53%--. When the vehicle's SOC hits 40%, the ICE will restart. When the SOC hits 53%, the second generator will stop recharging the hybrid battery and only regenerative braking will provide charging for the hybrid battery. For your information, you are looking at data which the vehicle was running on E22-22% ethanol and that is why the LFT--long term fuel trim is at 10.6 opposed to a value closer to zero.

What version of scanguage do you have? I have 3.14 which works for everything and version 3.15* that does not work for every hybrid function. Version 3.15 is suppose to work for all hybrid functions while 3.15* does not. I sent my 3.15* to scanguage to reprogram so everything in hybrid operations would work but it didn't do squat. I wonder if it was really reprogrammed and if I should try again? Cheaper than a new one.

Oops, I forgot to ask Scooter Scott how he secured his Kenwood DNX 7100 into the radio opening? I had mine done at the audio shop and later found it the only thing holding it in place is the dash piece! :(

hey Billy -

I recalled this post, and I believe that Scooter actually made a (poorly drawn :angel: ) diagram, the DNX7100 uses the same mounting points

When i Installed mine, I mimicked the system that the factory radio had, using pressure against the left and right sides. I'm pretty happy with it, it didn't require as much "screwing" around.
