Hey All! I was wondering if you someone could take a look at my interrogator logs before I go ahead and try the 3.4 update to make sure I won’t have any issues or things I need to be careful of before I go ahead and do it.
Vehicle is a MY18 Ford Raptor on 3.0.20204. Previous owner did do some Forscan Tweaks, but I haven’t had a chance to compare the originals to whats currently on the truck yet.
Reading through that decoder, there are some oddities that I noticed:
REVELi/B&O Sound System is set to off ( I have B&O )
Cross-Traffic Alert is Disabled ( I thought I had that )
Calm screen is enabled??
BT Vehicle Nameplate ID is set to Ford Taurus?? LOL
Thanks in advance! I have Forscan so I’m able to do anything necessary in Forscan if needed.
Yes, the previous owner did FORScan changes to the APIM.
The country code was changed to 5753, which enables “NAV in motion” but disables emergency safety features. You want to change this back to 5553 (US) before you upgrade the unit. The newer NAV updates are much better, and this mod is no longer needed or recommended.
REVEL/B&O Sound System is set to ON.
Even though it is indicated you have a TCU, the hotspot modem is disabled.
Your theme is set to Lincoln, not Ford.
Calm Screen is disabled.
BVNI is 0E=F150.
Remember, when you read the asbuilt generated by the Interrogator Utility, there are no checksum bits present in the data.
You can get your Factory Asbuilt at: Index - FordServiceInfo.Com (motorcraftservice.com)
Enter your VIN and download the file.
JS7T-14G371-KGA does not show up in the database here. The best way to tell if this one is safe is to look at the manufacture date on the unit. You can compare it to the asbuilt also. You need to verify this is not a replacement APIM.
Thanks. I just sent a message to the previous owner to ask if he had replaced it. I think its unlikely because he bought the truck new and I didn’t see anything in the service history that would indicate that.
Just downloaded the current “AsBuilt” off the truck with Forscan and compared it to both the Factory AsBuilt and the backups that the previous owner sent me as well. The only thing it is showing changed on the APIM is the country code as you said.
Absolutely. We have seen replacement APIM’s show up with the old part number series with 2020+ manufacture dates, so we want to be sure so you don’t brick your APIM. In your case the APIM should be ok to reformat.
Sorry to bug you guys again. I’m currently creating the 3.4.22251 updater USB. One thing I noticed is all of the map files are 3.2 versions. Just wanted to make sure that is correct. Also, is there any reason, I should remove say the Spanish or French voice files to conserve space?
Planning on trying the calm screen to see if it works before messing with firmwares in Forscan.
That is the revs of the maps, not the Sync versions. These are different, what you see is correct. Removing the Spanish or French voice files to conserve space won’t help the performance of the APIM, but it will not hurt anything as long as you use English exclusively.
