2021 Mustang Mach-E GT – High Voltage Components

From WeberAuto.

See the high voltage (HV) components of a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach E GT! Almost every electric vehicle has these same high voltage components. Learn their names and their basic functions.

I have been away from Youtube for eight months developing a new training curriculum for my college classes and the hybrid and electric vehicle classes I offer to the public. I am back now and will be releasing new videos as quickly as I am able.

I was wrong about the hood electric open hood only, there is a release handle, but it is behind electrically opened doors. If the doors were locked when the 12V battery died, then a special procedure shown here is needed.

0:00 Start
0:08 Introduction
1:38 HV common component – The Front Motor Inverter
3:18 HV common component – The DC-to-DC Converter
4:45 The 12V AGM battery
5:28 MUST SEE: The under frunk Jump Start terminals
6:17 Remote auxiliary stud box to open the frunk if the 12V battery is dead
6:43 MUST SEE: The green colored under frunk Low Voltage Service Disconnect (LVSD) connector
7:28 MUST SEE: The low voltage low current and high current fuse blocks.
8:55 HV common component – The Electric Air-Conditioning Compressor
9:18 The coolant chiller
10:00 HV common component – The On-Board Charger Module
12:16 The two coolant expansion tanks (Reservoirs)
12:54 Passenger compartment heat and the four-way switching valve.
13:36 Why there are a few more coolant hoses than some other electric vehicles
14:23 HV common component – The Front Drive Unit and Motor
15:30 HV common component – The High Voltage Battery
16:18 The Electrical connections at the high voltage battery
16:26 The small orange connector receives up to 43 amps of DC current from the onboard charger when using an AC Level 1 or AC Level 2 plug-in charge cable.
16:26 The large orange connector receives up to 300 amps of DC current from a DC Fast Charge station when using a DC Level 2 plug-in charge cable.
17:25 The metal electrical connector feeds DC power to the front motor inverter
17:37 The black low voltage data and power connector
18:18 The coolant hose connections at the front of the battery
18:42 HV common component – The Cabin Coolant Heater
19:00 HV common component – The Rear Drive Unit and Motor
19:30 The coolant hose connections at the rear of the battery
20:00 Mercon ULV Drive Unit Fluid
20:28 Special adapters are required to lift the vehicle and remove the high voltage battery
