  1. Heavy Duty Payload Package and PowerBoost

    PB also has 3 leaf springs like the HDPP.
  2. Damn the bad luck...

    Holy shit you're probably right
  3. Damn the bad luck...

    This is the correct take. This is a seller's market, and an opportunity to see the real character of the people selling you something that they know that you want. Walk away. Also, maybe place your Lightening order with another dealer. They don't deserve your business.
  4. Honorable Dealerships vs Dishonorable Dealerships

    I recall your story about that crazy accident. Very glad to hear that the Tomball dealer is honoring your original deal. Having purchased my Ford from Austin, I can definitely say that if I need to buy another Ford, I'm going to be doing so in Houston....
  5. Propower 2kw + 3.5L Ecoboost (nonhybrid)

    I have a Powerboost, and under generator mode when the engine is running, it's running at a much lower output than it would if it was straight up idling. The "other" F150 forums some users have reported that running it overnight will work fine, but is also expensive in terms of gas...
  6. Hi-res lossless/24-bit music over wireless CarPlay seems to work

    Documentation from Apple is not at all very clear, although their FAQ does specifically say that in order to enjoy truly lossless audio, you need to be on the USB adapter. The fact that they don't specifically say that it won't work via Wireless Carplay, and the fact that everywhere I can...
  7. Powerboost Exhaust, or 2021 3.5EB too?

    I purchased one for my truck to help me diagnose a CEL. It has its limitations as many of the diagrams are screenshots from internal Ford software that's designed to be interactive. That being said, it's a wealth of information and I don't regret buying it. It came in very handy getting me a...
  8. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    Ok, final update (unless something explodes). I drove from Austin to Dallas to visit my parents, and joyrode all around Dallas on 35, 30, and 75. Revved the shit out of the engine and pushed it hard. Drove it carefully and got excellent gas mileage. The truck drives smooth as butter, and the...
  9. Ford is Considering Shipping Vehicles Missing Chips for Dealerships to Finish (If They Want)

    Having just gotten my truck back after being at the dealer for nearly 40 days, I completely understand where you're coming from. There is definitely value in investing in diagnostic tools and a service manual. I got a lot more traction when I diagnosed my own problem, could prove it, and then...
  10. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    Update: At long last, I got an email from the service manager that the truck is fixed. A quick glance at my Ford Pass app shows the CEL is cleared, which makes me happy. The hybrid drive unit that they tried to rush order was delayed by Ford to even order until today, which I learned last...
  11. Lariat and higher are built in Michigan?

    My dealer told me that only Lariat or above trims had the 7.2 kw generator option. These forums is where I found out that they are wrong. Honestly Ford's biggest weakness is their dealer network.
  12. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    I just got a call to VM. The part they ordered won't fit the engine. The part they need is on backorder. I haven't been in my truck in 3 weeks. I have no idea where to go or what to do from here. Any ideas or thoughts?
  13. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    New update: I inquired with the Service Manager about the status of my job, and he told me that the "hybrid drive had arrived" and showed me a picture of the install procedure. When I saw this email, I thought to myself...wait...didn't you tell me last week that I was getting a new...
  14. 3 - power train malfunctions in a week

    Get a scanner tool and pull the codes. Post them on the forum. I can look them up for you.
  15. 2021 F-150 CoPilot 360 hack for completely hands free driving

    Am I the only one that gets nervous at how casual he's being trusting the Co Pilot to pass a semi and a concrete barrier at 78 MPH? I don't trust any machine/sensor 100% in that specific scenario...anything can fail and there's a number of ways something can spoof the sensors...and the...
  16. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    Further update: Ford Engineering has informed the dealer that a whole new transmission will be sent to be installed (with the new hybrid drive). Honestly, that's kind of a relief. I'm quoted 6 business days for parts delivery and installation. I feel a lot better. I didn't want some random...
  17. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    Service Director from Leif Johnson called and left a VM. He finally confirmed that yes, the hybrid drive unit will need to be replaced, and that they needed to put a ticket to Ford's engineering team to make sure all details are understood. I should get an update tomorrow. Finally some...
  18. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    Read some reviews on other car forums that https://www.factory-manuals.com/ is legit. For $90, I was skeptical. But after using it, I'm super impressed. It's an absolute wealth of knowledge. I learned a ton about how the Hybrid system works in this truck, which is how I know that this job is...
  19. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    So, outside of these forums, I vented my frustration on social media and tagged @Ford on it. A social media specialist responded damn near immediately and I've been in constant, consistent contact via DM. He's created an escalated case for my concerns and informed me a customer experience rep...
