    There are several sheets, only one being actively maintained.

    [MENTION=30267]EastTNMustang[/MENTION] has a thread dedicated to that.

    I was talking to a guy yesterday who wanted to know if it was possible to enable/disable to the so-called "smart-charging" feature on 2015-2017 mustangs. He was claiming the current battery is too "small" to support the addition of power hungry audio systems (god knows if this makes sense) and wanted to be able to turn it off. ANyone have any clues here??

    I have zero issues and push 1400W stereo, two fuel pumps, and two air compressors all at the same time.

    Has anyone tried submitting ideas through the ford site (specifically adding the speed readout) Maybe if enough of us do it they will hear us.
    Otherwise excellent work!

    726-04-01 xxx2 xxxx xxxx - battery management enabled
    726-04-01 xxx0 xxxx xxxx - battery management disabled

    Disabling this makes the alternator run at 100% all the time, thus more charging power to the battery at a possible loss of fuel efficiency.

    I agree but he was making it sound as if it disabled power in some way. The computer senses load and does its thing be ensuring whatever demand is placed on the system it is satisfied up until the alternators capacity.

    That's not exactly what's going on... you never want your alternator to run "100% all of the time" as you would boil your battery.

    All automotive alternators have a regulator to throttle current in the field coils. Ford just chooses to use an external regulator. In the past, both internal and external regulators simply sensed the voltage across the battery terminals and current was limited by a MOSFET circuit in an analog fashion.

    Now it can be done logically by simply turning off the current to the field coil until the battery is drained enough to make charging efficient. This means you're not slowly trickle charging all of the time, but the alternator is actually just idling for periods of time before it begins charging again.

    Even with "power hungry audio systems" you're fighting the same battle... can the alternator keep up? You can quadruple the size of the battery, but all you do is buy some discharge time.

    Question guys: does these mods (such as police mode, no horn, etc) will work also on MY2018 & MY2019?

    Has someone tried?

    Does anyone know if you update to sync 3, if that will mess up previous as built changes we have made? I dont wanna mess anything up.

    Best

    Edit: I meant sync 3 v3.0 my bad... I think we used to be on 2.3 or something

    The software has nothing to do with the as-built changes...Sync 3 has 2 boards - the main one is the APIM which you interact with using Forscan and holds the as-built data and the smaller one which has the QNX image and it's what you see as a firmware.

    Hey folks,

    I tried to change headlamps delay settings, but it is not working.

    I changed this:
    726-14-02 0101 0101 01XX
    726-21-01 01XX XXXX XXXX


    Any tips what else should I try? Headlamps delay is still 14-15 seconds in the dark. Driving through tunnels is a nightmare with auto lights, I have to turn on lights manualy all the time.

    The correct setting is this one:
    726-26-01 xxx* xxxx xxxx Ambient Light Sensor Type Cfg: 0=Slow_FNA, 1=Fast_Row

    Set it from "0" to "1" and the light goes on after 3 seconds.

    My headlights go on very quickly without any modification, why yours need 15 seconds?

    Can Forscan read check engine light codes?
