    Hi all, I'm trying to add all the interior illuminated parts to my 19 Ecoboost. After searching the forums, I noticed there's not a lot of info regarding Mycolor on 18+MY Mustangs, so I guess I'll also be trying to consolidate what I've been able to piece together from posts elsewhere. If anyone knows of a thread that discusses 18+, I'd appreciate a link.

    I would also like to thank eddison for this quote in the mega thread for the Mycolor hack, as I never would've guessed Ford would actually put wiring into the vehicle when they had no intention of utilizing it from the factory.

    My 101a does have the wiring in it, at least for the door sills, as that is as far as I've checked given my time. I did install the illuminated sill plates today, however they do not light up upon the door opening. Would this be due to a different method of wiring used by Ford from the factory compared to when one puts the kit in themselves and uses the panel under the passenger side kick plate? I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't light up otherwise, as I don't see Ford not wiring the harness fully so it can be used by the plates. If anyone has any ideas I'm completely open to them, thanks for your time!

    You need to enable power to go through those cables using Forscan

    Hi guys
    have a quick question. I have a base 2017. If I get this part FR3Z-13C788-E this should help me get the mycolor in my car correct? I upgraded to the digital dash and it has mycolor but the module in my car does not support mycolor/ambient lighting. I want to put in the lighted cup holders and will try to see if the cabling is there for the parts
    Thanks

    Tbh I'm not quite sure on my end, though it seems like that would be the case. Looking at the As Built data program I have the part number seems to have changed from my understanding, though I'm not sure how the part number changes on a year to year basis. My father's '15 EB Prem was part number FR3T-14D644-BE, mine on a '19 101A EB is KR3T-14D644-AA, and a '19 EB Prem is KR3T-14D644-BE. The latter two I can confirm (I think) is the difference on a 19. This might even vary from the '18 MY as a user on here was selling his lighting module from an '18 101A EB and that part number was FR3T-14D644-AF.

    I can't even find my part number through a search on Ford part websites at all, so I'm at a loss for what part number I need to look for, unless I'm entirely wrong on it and looking at the wrong device. 13C788 will bring up that control module, but every label I see on any of them is 14D644.

    My module is FR3T-14D644-AF so that is not a my color module
    I was informed that the 15-17 is not like the 18+ and does not have the harness for the my color.
    Working on another idea from a user that did this successfully.
    Thanks

    For finding ford parts, the best way I've discovered (when trying to add active valve exhaust)

    Go on a Ford dealer's website and search for a car which has the thing you want. Find it's VIN and enter that VIN into https://parts.ford.com/en.html and then search for it.

    The only what I could find active valve mufflers for my car was like that.

    Got the BCM-B in from a premium Mustang, came off a convertible so I just had to switch the code over to a coupe. All the ambient pieces do light up now, though I can't change them since I don't have a high series cluster. Right now they glow that ice blue Ford uses for the other buttons inside. This project will have to be on hold for a bit while I get some money saved for a cluster now, but I can collect the rest of the ambient pieces in the meantime.
