  1. Nothing is illuminated while it’s in remote start mode. You have to either put the key in or hit the start button to actually turn on the vehicle. Think about it - why do you need any controls if there is nobody in the vehicle?

    Damn that’s over 8 hours labor - ridiculous!

    No monthly charge unless you want a data plan.

    I’m seeing $320 plus installation. We don’t use it enough to upgrade.

    There is a shuffle button - try toggling it.

    How do I update the maps?

    Yes. Try owner.ford.com.

    That’s almost certainly from the 2020 Aviator. So many problems even 1 year after launch.
  8. No it doesn’t say PNCS. I would consider the Coopers but they don’t make a 21” tire. The Michelin’s are really the only other reasonable choice and I love Michelins. Just hoping they stay quiet.
  9. Has anyone else had noise issues with the 21” OEM Pirelli Scorpion Verde tires? The original set developed a loud roar at 23K miles. At the time there were no other tire choices so I replaced with the same and they’ve been nice and quiet until the last couple of months. Was riding in the back on the way to the beach and it was super loud again - at 46K miles. Like clockwork. I assume it threw a belt both times. The noise changes with the road surface. I’ll be replacing with Michelin’s this time. Just curious if anyone else had the same issue.

    Hope it's not a lemon ...

    An easy fix but get Motorcraft fans.

    You need to check the code but it’s probably the purge valve.

    Not necessary. The PCM will protect it with the factory parameters.

    Electronics Behaving Strangely

    9 times out of 10 it’s the battery. If it’s more than 3 years old just replace it.
  14. Yep I just spliced into the rear PowerPoint on the left side but all I was powering were the led trailer lights.

    Simple question

    Studies haven’t found them to be statistically safer which is why they aren’t mandatory in the US. Just look at all the YouTube videos of people pulling out in front of others and it’s clear almost all of these are caused by the driver never even looking. If you can’t see a 4000 lb vehicle in the daytime within 100 ft then lights won’t help because you’re not looking. That said they don’t hurt much so I wouldn’t turn them off.
