F150 Tremor FORScan

Yes, it's a factory option in either General or Vehicle settings, under "Mirrors", you can elect to have them fold on lock or not. I did change the code in my 2020 Raptor to enable folding mirrors, so yes, I have done this code before, but not needed on Tremor (I have 402a package, not sure if that is required or not).
Thanks for the info because I had no clue.
I haven’t played with many of the settings since I purchased it.
 
Yes, the only way. A dealer won't do this for you.
Does this work on 22's if we didn't have it from Factory? I was under impression there was no "chip" to provide digital readout...

TIA
 
He might have gotten confused on something.

There is physically no hardware for digital temp knobs if they don’t have them. ForScan is only needed to match the programming of the new knobs if you do replace them with ones that have temp readout and also remove the info from the sync screen so it’s not redundant.

I tried to look into swapping just the knobs only but to my minimal surprise the circuit board doesn’t even have the ribbon cable connector and who knows what else is missing from it. So if you want temp display knobs you need to swap the whole unit. There’s no workaround in software, it’s a hardware thing.
Ahh, makes total sense. Thanks!! I can (continue to) live without it. I guess I can cross that off my FORSCAN to do list.

The entire module is only about $110 if you want the temp readouts. Since I replaced my HVAC when I added my heated steering wheel to get the heated steering wheel button, I opted to get one with the temp dials. Easy swap and I prefer the looks of it.

Do you have a part number for what you bought for $110?

I did mine as well but wondering if yours is throwing ftv code in hcac? I think it’s normal bc it’s not original part but I’ve been reading that dtc’s can prevent ota’s and wondering if this is true? If it is I may change it back and look to sell

I have a 22 and the digital readout works just fine. All I had to do is reset the hvac. In forscan and it took right off.

Nice. I didn’t replace mine. Just gonna keep it how it is.
 
The prices on these seem to fluctuate based on demand, and one with the heated steering wheel button might still be in high demand from people adding back the heated steering wheel since it got cold. I didn’t look up what part number I installed, I just did a quick google search, hence why I accidentally linked one w/out the heated steering wheel button, but I did seem then at that $110 price last spring.

When i enabled glare free headlights last week I didn’t have a code. When I first installed it I did, but I just cleared it. Not sure why it hasn’t come back. I have received OTAs since installing this module.
 
I have a controller with heated steering wheel and heat/cooled seats. Does not have the digital readout though. If anyone is interested?
 
Is there anything in here about headlight brightness? I have the 402a and I’m really disappointed in the brightness of their “upgraded trim” model

I thought same thing but it’s normal. Take it out to a back road with no lights or traffic and look again. It’s bright and looks great. I forget what they call it but lights dim for traffic so you don’t blind them. Pull into a drive through for a burger. Pull right up to the car in front and the lights nose dive down so they don’t get blinded.
It does leave enough of the road lit so you can see ok.
I had an xlt loaner and they appeared brighter and I thought the same thing.
Dealer will say they are not adjustable but they are. Thing is by raising them would just blind other drivers.
Oh, they auto level so if you lift… zero adjustment needed

Yeah I work nights and drive constantly from 3-6am just about everyday and I’m not impressed at all

I think they are great, I was impressed by them. IDK, maybe there's something wrong with yours? You have any pics? When you start up, do you see them auto adjust (moving left / right +up down)?

BTW, chatGPT says:
According to a Ford Tremor Forum, you can use Forscan to adjust the settings of LED lights to make them brighter. You can also use Forscan to boost the brightness of DRL LED bars

Yeah they adjust and curve with the road. I daily drive an 2023 x3 and maybe I’m just used to those lights? I understand from a luxury standpoint that bmw trumps ford, but from a price point my tremor is close to 30k more?

I drive an 2021 X5 with the bendy lights - "Laser" lights aka "Icon Adaptive Full LED Headlights w/Laser light", I believe they are the "Top of the line" for BMW so I have similar comparison, IMO, both the Ford and BMW are great, I don't see that Ford is chasing or far behind BMW in any respect as far as LED adaptive headlights. Anyway, IDK, I hope your lights are working as designed and not having some sort of issue. Maybe I need to take the Tremor out some more at night and pay closer attention though.

Who knows. Maybe it’s all in my head and I’m just being super picky lol
