2021 Mustang Mach-E GT – De-energizing the High Voltage System

From WeberAuto.

See how to de-energize the high voltage (HV) system of a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach E GT! This new Low Voltage Service Disconnect (LVSD) method is used by all 2020 and newer Ford electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.
