    Can't Hear Turn Signals (normal?)

    I noticed this as well and thought it was odd. I assumed it was normal. I don’t think there is a way to make it any louder, unfortunately.

    How serious is this recall notice? “BATTERY ENERGY CONTROL MODULE SOFTWARE UPDATE”

    As others have said, it comes down to your personal assessment and tolerance for "risk". I would personally still take the trip and try not to think about it too much. If you DCFC, maybe avoid launching back onto the highway. Good time to plug the main info thread here. DevSecOps has a ton of...

    3.3.1 Power-Up SYNC Software Update

    Strange… the Auto Ambient Lighting toggle under Drive Modes is gone. I can change it in the Settings > Ambient Lighting but it doesn’t automatically switch any more.

    DIY Tutorial for Hardwiring a Dashcam and Radar Detector

    You were totally right about this, auto mute is just fine with the redline 360c. I haven't felt the need to use the button I installed once yet.

    3.3.1 Power-Up SYNC Software Update

    Quite the busy week - I just got 3.3.1! (I’m in EA) I went from wondering if my car had an issue with getting OTAs to receiving 3 in a week. I’m pretty sure my 2/22 built premium already had the climate control tweak though, I can’t spot any differences there.

    Power-Up 3.2.1 SYNC Update

    The "No and dismiss icon" option is definitely new in this update, and a great change. I had already dismissed the icon but had to go through the old workaround of activating it and THEN signing out from the Alexa menu in Settings, which made the icon go away. The icon never re-appeared and...

    Why did my car try to charge outside of set hours?

    I would think that'd be somewhat unpredictable. I think it's generally advised to disable any scheduling in your EVSE and use the car to manage it. That's what I do with my ChargePoint and it is usually very reliable, except when software updates zonk the schedule which is rare and depends on...

    Why did my car try to charge outside of set hours?

    Mine did the same thing last night (ignored my schedule and charged to 100%). I got 3.2.1 OTA yesterday afternoon and chalked it up to that. I checked earlier and it looks like my schedule is still in place so hopefully it’ll be a return to normal charging tonight. edit: weird stuff happening...

    DIY Tutorial for Hardwiring a Dashcam and Radar Detector

    I used 15/16 because they're unused/vacant in my car (Premium w/no MagneRide) and switched, which is all I need since I'm using the ivolt battery for my cam.

    DIY Tutorial for Hardwiring a Dashcam and Radar Detector

    I just came in from installing the button in the location I mentioned above. The little panel that holds the sensor for (I think) the interior motion detector for the alarm, directly below and behind the screen, pops off very easily - 2 clips - just be careful, this wire and assembly seems...

    DIY Tutorial for Hardwiring a Dashcam and Radar Detector

    I think this spot would be great if I can find a way to get the wires behind the dash without drilling. It even almost goes with the lines of the trim. There's not as much surface area for the 3M VHB as I'd like, but enough that I think it'll adhere to the back of the screen just fine. This...

    DIY - Mounting Escort Radar - Mag Mount Specific

    I received my mount in the mail yesterday and had to post that the shipping speed, build quality, instructions, fit and finish are all 10/10. Well worth the $25 to have a great mounting solution to an otherwise fairly limiting situation. Thanks again DSO

    DIY Tutorial for Hardwiring a Dashcam and Radar Detector

    For those who have used hardwire kits for radar detectors that include a remote mute button (like the Escort one) - where have you stuck the button and routed the wiring? Looking for some inspiration... currently thinking that having the button stuck on the under side of the leathery trim below...

    DIY Tutorial for Hardwiring a Dashcam and Radar Detector

    How have you found GPS reception to be for your camera in that spot? I'd love to put mine there and avoid using the precious limited "black dot" (non-IRR) space.

    Ford PowerUp 3.1.1, 3.2.1, and 3.3.1 (Update)

    first OTA for me as well, 22 premium. I’m in EA fwiw. I *just* activated the trial for Alexa so I could delete the GD alexa icon from my screen, and now this pops the next day. I already had Alexa obv so this seems like a mistake. I’m going to stop thinking about it as long as the icon...

    DIY How To: Add Hands-free liftgate back to 2022 Mach-E

    The Mongoose works great with FDRS but is $500. You have to use ForSCAN for this procedure, and the Mongoose can't read one of the modules you have to reprogram for this (APIM), so I would not buy the Mongoose just for this. The OBDLink is $60 and works great with ForSCAN. That's the only...

    DIY How To: Add Hands-free liftgate back to 2022 Mach-E

    Fantastic guide, everything went great. I had to buy the OBDLink EX since the Mongoose I just bought for FDRS wouldn't read APIM, but other than that this was smooth sailing. I was bummed that this wasn't available on my 22 but love having it re-enabled. Thanks a lot!

    Accessories - from must have to optional

    I totally agree that it’s a waste if you want it to keep your car cooler, but sometimes after a long day in the hot sun you just don’t want to be in the sun at all any more. For those times, the sun shade is a nice option. This one is super subjective but I definitely like having it for those...

    Did not one person from Ford ever drive with the windows down during development?

    I snapped the wire in mine on day one when I was trying to see if it could be twisted and folded up like a figure 8 and stored. No, no it cannot.

    Post here if you have an active FDRS account and are willing to look up info for others

    Awesome! That's what I was hoping was the case. My handful of updates went great, I just finished and cleaned up in time to watch Better Call Saul and life is good. I did have to restart FDRS to get OBCC to clear but that did the trick. I just took a drive and all is well. Thanks again for...
