Ignore the instruction signs if you want to use EA Pass+ membership discounts. Use the app to initiate the charging session, then plug in. If you want to be really safe, turn off plug & charge in the truck or on the app.Thanks GDN. I understand how blue oval charge is meant to work but every EA station I've been to says to plug in first then initiate the charging. So I'm wondering if anyone has had success activating the charger before plugging in. It seems that plug in and then initiate via app or nfc membership card is negated if plugging in will trigger blue oval charge network payment processing. I want to be able to use blue oval sometimes but take advantage of EA member discounts in the long run.
Ford has initiated their own discounted system. Blue Oval Charge Network membership will be $50/year and provide the same discounted rates at EA stations. The big advantage is you get that discount when you use Plug & Charge. I'm in a test program with my Mach E now and it works fine. Ford is supposed to roll it out soon.
