Stumbled upon this forum. Recently purchased a 2018 F-150 TIA... err, Mini stroke? Baby stroke? 3.0L Powerstroke?
Previously had a '13 Ram 1500 quadcab and with my family (soon to be) growing in size had to upgrade my seating arrangements. Was able to get the '18 for a good deal and certainly has more bells and whistles inside than I could have ever wanted. Was hesitant for buying a diesel (especially a 1st year Ford run) but after researching the motor's history and knowing that the fuel economy was supposedly wonderful I decided to pull the trigger.
So far, less than 2 weeks of owning it I have put on almost 800 miles and averaged just under 23mpg... not too shabby. While the ride feels a little rougher than my Ram I can say everything else in the truck makes up for it (except that auto start/stop... thank goodness for that button).
Not sure if I am going to do anything much to the truck. Ordered a tri-fold hard bed cover, vent visors, bug/stone guard and weathertek mats... I think that would be good for now. Perhaps a decent air filter in my future?
Here to have a few laughs while gaining knowledge and ironing out bugs.
Ditto what wreed says, forscan is great! In the meantime you can just unplug the battery management plug at the neg terminal of the battery and auto start is gone. Welcome!
I discovered when unplugging the BMS cable, my radar was not turning off anymore, which led me to investigate more and over night my voltage would drop into the 11s. I plugged it back in and disabled ASS with Forscan and now radar goes off and voltage is a healthy 12.6v in the AM. So unplugging the cable, all the trucks modules do not shutdown at night draining the battery. At that rate I could see the battery being unable to start the truck in a few days time.
1) Switch the ignition on
2) Press the memory button
3) Select the mirror you want to adjust
4) Put your vehicle into reverse (R) and let the mirror automatically tilt until it stops
5) When the mirror is in its tilted position and is no longer moving, adjust it with the controls
6) Hold the memory button for 5 seconds to save the setting
7) Press the mirror button and return to park (P
8) Hold memory button again

convert... I guess. Grew up a Merc guy had an '88 XR-7 that I modded and made it into a 12 second-ish street rod. I loved my '13 Bighorn but I made the mistake of getting the quad cab instead of the crew otherwise I'd keep it until the wheels fell off [insert Dodge FCA joke here]. Here is my old baby... gonna miss her.
