A new recall...

Today I received a new recall notice through FordPass. It popped up earlier but now it is gone. Something about daylight running lights with low beam light causing problems for other drivers. It talked about a software fix through one of the control modules, and it looked like something that could be done pretty easily in Forscan. Anyone else received this notice? I wanted to put up the recall number and details, but it is gone from my phone.

OK, I found the notice through an Internet search. Here's what popped up earlier. Anyone know the Forscan fix?

As I understand it, the feds don't want the outer ring of LEDs on as DRLs when the headlights come on. The LEDs should go off. Easy enough to change it in forscan but that won't stop Ford from wanting to reflash your truck.

Problem is, does that change various forscan changes back to "as built"? I am happy with it running as it is and don't want any changes.

Amen. I like it as it is, and I love all the other minor adjustments I have made with Forscan.
