Weird situation earlier today…
Driving along highway, BC activated normally.
Suddenly the car like panicked and started prompting and beeping to “resume control”. Couldn’t get it to realize I took control back, turning off cruise control a few times got it to chill out. Then got a warning...
He made a comment that the bumper charging wires will allow the doors to be open... is that actually to jump the 12V? I thought that was just a mechanism to pop the hood up, then you'd have to jump the 12V?
Eh. I used adaptive cruise and lane centering pretty frequently with just a light finger on the wheel… so was already pretty comfortable and trusting of the car… this isn’t that much more advanced in theory
Do you use 1PD?
I use 1PD... slow to a stop (stopped traffic, red light, etc.) and never touch the brake... so it never activates the "hold"... but then if i'm on a hill or extended stop, ill tap the brake to activate the hold. Seems like same intention?
Any reason why it doesn’t cover the full seat? I’ve got a crappy one now for two young kids in car seats… have to go look at mine, but I think their feet land higher than this would cover
I’ve been pretty happy with it so far.
Trust the machine!! :)
only complaint I have, is like others, I’m super surprised we don’t get an audio cue When BC disengages. Seems like a bit of a safety concern to me.
regarding updates… manual Frds updates and ota updates are unrelated and don’t correlate to each other (probably should ford…)
go into general > about sync and you should see 4.0.22095 revision 421
regarding BC- yeah, under adaptive control you should see hands free. When you activate adaptive...
yep look under adaptive cruise control. Should say “hands free” under one of the options…. Then just turn on the cruise control like you normally would. You’ll get a warning about bluecruise that you have to OK every time (kinda annoying). You’ll see the hands free come up on the left and may...
I highly doubt it’s an infrastructure issue. Data and bandwidth is just $$ these days and easy to implement
I think it’s more risk based.
if you’re doing an OTA update and something goes terribly wrong, you could leave people without a working car
If it’s in a dealership, it’s in a safe...
Ha- im dealing with same. Sounds like dealerships aren’t used to people being smarter than them on something new they’re just trying to figure out.
Really appreciate this community and all the troubleshooting help that occurs!!
