    Has anyone had problems accessing all of the modules? I only have access to 4: BCM x2, APIM, and DDM. The few models I was able to access worked (double honk disable and adding heated/cooled seats and steering to home screen). The modules I really want to change (fake engine noise, lincoln mirrors, auto start/stop disable) don't show up in Forscan when I connect. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Anyone out there in the Souther California area (or within a few hours drive) who's comfortable doing this? I'd gladly pay someone to do it. I'm a Mac user and not the most comfortable tackling something like this on my own... boy, that sounded pretty weak. LOL! Anyway, hope someone out there can help.

    Hi, I made my first change today using OBD MX and Forscan to turn off double honk to module to BdyCM As Built.. The double honk went away but tire pressure no longer works. i saved before making the change.

    When I made the change, it said there was a checksum error, continue anyway? is that normal?

    EDIT: (Nevermind, the tire pressure came back after a while.. guess it resets the values.)

    What about checksum warning, is that normal?

    Yup, checksum warning is normal. I got it when I was making my Lincoln mirror changes.

    Tell me about it. I just got in last week. The same crazy crowd still here.

    I keep checking this thread to see who in my town has a Fscan so can get one and not ruin a whole truck. That double beep scares me every time!

    I’m in SoCal. Got forscan yesterday & set it all up today. No more honks, autostart, Seat coolers & warmers on display & folding mirrors. If anyone down here needs any help shoot me a message. I’ve got it all set on my laptop with the passthru. Don’t need WiFi or Bluetooth. Used my Mac with parallel for PC.

    I bought a Bluetooth one because I’m stupid & impatient. I only have Apple so I ended up using parallels and a plug in pass thru device. It was like $20 on Amazon. Got mine squared away, then eb3 saw my post on here. He stopped by & 15 minutes in the driveway had him all set too.

    i just did my programming today.... the TPMS will disappear because you reset the module, but after you drive it for a little bit, it will re register again. Mine took about 3 miles driving for all 4 to register again. It's fine :)

    EDIT: ooops i didn't see your edit, you figure it out lol

    Does anyone in the Fort Worth/Dallas area that has a current subscription want a 12 pack to help me make a few changes?

    I followed the steps but my Raptors Mirrors still won’t auto tilt down when going into reverse.
