Hello All,
I decided to upgrade my 2017 XLT 4" screen to the 8". I bought a used APIM, screen, HVAC module, and faceplate from a wrecked 2016 Limited. I was able to get the phone to work and the screen itself working, but the seek, media, and phone buttons on the steering wheel do not function. Only the volume on the steering wheel works. The rear seat radio controls also still work. The other issue I have is the rear control clock and radio buttons stay on all the time and end up draining the battery over time. I updated the ACM and APIM to match the previous posts on pages 81-82 and have gotten to my current point. Any advice?

The Double Honk and a BUNCH of other stuff is in the Easy config drop down area for the APIM and BCM for the 2020+. Make sure you are running the newest version.

I have a 2021 Expy XLT (200a). I downloaded the current version of Forscan (2.3.41 beta).
When I connect to the vehicle, it pulls the BdyCM module (AS BUILT) but does not give me an option for the easy-config version.
Also for many of the 2021 F150 Spreadsheet items, I am not able to see the same address codes in my AS BUILT format.

Example: PSCM 730-03-01 for Disable Auto Stop/Start listed in the spreadsheet. That address does not show in my PSCM AS BUILT.

Has anyone else played around with Forscan on the '21? I did get the Disable Double-Honk working. Would like Disable Auto Stop/Start and Global Windows.
I would consider starting a Google Doc for us if it's helpful.

Downloaded Forscan yesterday after receiving my OBDlink. Plugged it in and played around with a couple things. I stayed in the easy config versions of most everything.
Under the IPC it listed a bunch of options for IAT display, Boost/Vacuum Display, Air/Fuel Gauge Display, and Selectable Drive Mode. I enabled all of those and have not noticed any changes. I'm assuming it is because these trucks are on the odd side and don't support that.

I did go into the SCCM and change the # of flashes for the lane change turn signal. I ended up using "A" for the digit to change it from 3 flashes to 5.

Only other things I changed were Bambi Mode and Fog Lights to DRLs. Waiting to drive it today and find out if that worked.

On the left side of the cluster where it displays trans temperature, oil pressure and oil temp. Is there no other gauges/values you can enable to show there?

Finally, it's been a long time waiting but it's here and it works, well somewhat.

I was tinkering with the asbuilt, comparing it to a 2012-2014 Explorer and I stumbled upon the hex that controls the dynamic guidelines. Catch22, it only works after the vehicle has been driven for a mile or so and it resets to the no-dynamic guidelines we're accustomed to at the next restart. Drive it again and they come back. I don't know if it's a LINBUS bug or the PSCM lacking the Steering Angle Sensor hex bit but Hell I'll take that over not having them at all. ;)

Rear Camera Dynamic Guidelines ... BCM 726-36-01 - Xxxx-xxxx-xx / X=6
