I'm in SD waiting for a GTPE from the 1/10 build week. It is still on chip hold but I am very interested in seeing what it takes to install a foot sensor for the back. I can contact you when my car arrives.
The module I work with taps into the trunk button (from the trunk) and 12v and ground. Routing the wires through the grommet is no fun but I’m pretty use to it now.

Thank you for the information and the offer to help. I will contact you in a couple months when my car arrives.

I wonder if we can generate enough interest for a groupbuy with them?

For me it was 7/10 because I was the Guinea pig but I did a write up and I think it can done in 1-1.5 hour and 5/10 difficulty.
@Megabueno It would be great to have a write up to understand at least the steps to install this. I am on the fence. I liked the this as an option but it got removed from my '22 order. However, with the stories of the trunk opening and hitting the garage doors, I am not sure I want it now. Hope you can do a quick install summary. My questions would be: Do we have to change the lift struts? Do we have to drill the bumper? Looks like there is a control module, where does that go? Does the car give an error code when it is connected? T

I would need a ‘22 to test. Also, there are two things we need to differentiate: 1) You shouldn’t need new power strut if you have autolift gate but would like to add the foot module. 2) if you don’t have an auto Liftgate then you will need to replace the struts

As for the write up, I can consider putting on together this weekend.

I have a standalone foot module that I would like to try out. It taps into the trunk button, ground, and fuse box. It shouldnt take longer than 1-2 hours to test. If it works, I can sell the unit/labor for a reduce cost of $100. Let me know if that works?

For a ‘22, would it need an aftermarket kit, or could you just order the missing factory parts and install those?

Even if the factory parts are on back order, I assume you could get them eventually.

Someone would just have to figure out exactly what’s missing.

the piece I’m testing would be the standalone part. You can try ordering from Ford, I wouldn’t have a part number. It’s not a kit btw, it’s a module because the car already should have auto Liftgate.

Hi Megabueno. Did you get a chance to finish that install video? My package just got delivered and I think I'm going to try and tackle it this weekend.
