@Magma_Red_F150 - thanks for summarizing all of your FORScan mods. I just plugged ODBLink MX+ this morning for the first time to see the plethora of data that is available. I see now that I will need to purchase the full license to alter anything, but I think what you listed is a complete list of the mods I would want to make. Thanks again.

Does disabling the auto start stop disable other features? I thought I read that it disabled the battery management system.



Two separate things, one is a hardware mod, the other a software mod. A person can unhook the battery management system and that will disable the auto start stop feature from what I understand. Using Forscan it is a software option to disable the Auto Start Stop in the Body Control Module.

Autofold Mirrors - Lincoln Style
Double Horn Honk disable
Bambi mode "Ability to do fogs & high beams at same time
Engine temp show
Sync 3 New Blue Theme - GT Performance boot animation
Disable Auto Stop/Start
DPF Filter percentage full to the gauge cluster

I completed all those mods with FORScan, besides the disable of auto start/stop. I really like having the auto start/stop in the city. I’m hoping to get the revere dip mirror working (I tried both F and FC codes accordingly to no success). I currently have saved memory 3 set has my reverse mirror dip setting, but would be nice to have it work as in other 2018 F-150’s.

Thanks for the codes ect. Such a bog help!

I have done:

Heated/Cooled seat icon to home/climate screen
Auto folding mirrors(tow mirrors), non-Lincoln
DPF guage
Bambi mod
2 honk eliminator

I am going to be attempting to add adaptive cruise in the coming months and Forscan is essential. Wish I knew about this when I had the 15'

@Joe8813 you were able to get the auto folding mirrors working with the larger tow mirrors? I thought I read a while back that it required swapping a couple wires inside the harness going to the mirrors...but I may be recalling this wrong and maybe that was for getting the tilt mirrors in reverse option to work.

I did. I had to swap pin 18 and 19 otherwise they work opposite. It literally took 10 minutes a side. Pop the panel and the hardest part is getting that little tab to release the wire. probably took me 5-6 minutes on the first on then a minute for the rest.

Yes Exactly right. I have mine unplugged at the battery instead of changing the software. Just my preference right now. Does exactly the same thing.

I was able to get the Auto Start/Stop, Stop/Start message, Bambi mode, DPF %, and Double horn to work... But was unable to get the Heat/cooled seats to show on the Home Screen. No Biggie.. as of course I have the buttons... Will poke around more soon... So far liking the ability to personalize the truck a bit.

To do the Autofold Mirrors - Lincoln Style.. Do you need to do all 3 settings listed?

DDM 740-12-01
PDM 741-03-01
PDM 741-12-01

Just making sure I am reading it right.

Has anyone had success with adding mirrors dip in reverse?

Reverse mirror tilt down

DDM. 740-03-01 FXXX

DDM 740-13-01. FCXX

PDM. 741-03-01. FXXX

PDM. 741-13-01. FCXX

Reverse Tilt Mirror Calibration:

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

Heated & Cooled Seat Icons AND Heated Steering Wheel on home & climate screen

APIM 7D0-01-01 XXXX - XXXX - X6XX

Perpendicular and parallel park assist
PAM 736-04-01 X3XX - XXXX - XX

I added the park assist mod since I did not see it added yet to this thread.

I tested the perpendicular part this week and it worked great.

When I started the Truck this afternoon the Heated/Cooled seat icons were on Home screen.. guess it needed a longer cycle off time.



May try that Perpendicular park assist... I already have Parallel.. .... Although... How do you activate it? Same Button as Parallel??



Next will be Temps above Gauges.

Yes first push selects Parallel and second push selects perpendicular.

Use your turn signal to select the side of the truck to scan and take your hands OFF THE STEERING WHEEL and let the truck do the steering.

Only operate the brake (you can ride the brake to make it go slowly) and gear shift when instructed.

Go slowly the first few times you use it.

I made it fail the first few attempts because I didn’t trust it.

Now I am confident it can park the truck without my help....

Perpendicular park is only backing into the spots.

OK, totally rookie questions here. DPF means "diesel particulate filter," right? What is it, where is it, and why would we need to know the percentage? What is the REGEN cycle some people refer to on the forums? Thanks!
