  1. Warning for those using the BM-2 Bluetooth Battery Monitor

    Seriously? You think the Chinese government monitors, logs and stores data 24 hours a day from millions of vehicles just to know if I'm going to Walmart on Monday or if I waited until Wednesday? Or if I drove 5 miles to the grocery store or if I decided to go to a different store 8 miles from...
  2. 2kW Pro Power came through for 14 hours of backup power during home power loss

    A guy in Canada ran a test with the 2 kW system and 5.0 engine and found it used .9 gallons per hour. With the extended size 36 gallon tank that would give you about 32 or 33 hours of run time.
  3. A Coyote can sip fuel!

    I've always found, with any vehicle, you get the best milage traveling constantly at the speed that the transmission goes into it's highest gear. On my 5.0 with 3.73 gears that's about 45 which can yield 26-28 mpg. Faster than that and air resistance increases so quickly that by the time you...
  4. Engine Cleaner — Spec. Chevron Techron

    Or read the container of Techron and see how many gallons of gas it's supposed to treat and add the right number of containers to a full tank then run the tank down as low as you feel comfortable before re-filling (I don't let it go below 1/8 tank). I also always add the Techron to the tank at...
  5. Heated seats via FordPass

    My '21 Lariat remote start setting is Auto and the seats and steering wheel never come on (even though it says in the manual that they should below a certain outside temp) until you press the Start button in the truck.
  6. Odd vibration noise from weatherstripping at Highway speed?

    So I found a possible cause for the sound I was hearing which is similar to what you are describing. When I opened the passenger side rear door I happened to bang it with my elbow and there is a piece of trim on the leading edge of the window frame that is loose and made a pretty loud...
  7. ⚠️ Recall: Electronic Parking Brake Unintended Activation -- affects 870K F-150 (from 2021-23 model years w/ single exhaust system)

    I looked at my April 2021 build Lariet today and the harness was slightly touching the axel tube. I didn't pull it off the bracket to inspect the insulation tape because I didn't want to stress the wires. I slipped a piece of spiral wire cover under the harness between it and the axel and...
  8. Ford Saving on Recalls

    I think I remember reading the recall and it said something like less than 1% of the trucks produced had a bad motor installed. I guess I'd hope mine is one of the 99% that are OK and not have the motor replaced (which requires a lot of the cowl be pulled apart) and not risk damage in the...
  9. Auto window roll

    Something people may want to consider, I had a 2016 Mustang with the roll down feature (I think you had to press unlock twice or three times then hold the button down). One day I am leaving work and when I get to the car the windows are all open. I know I didn't leave them open or use the...
  10. 5.0 L COYOTE METAL BADGES

    Not to burst your bubble (and maybe now they are better) but I put them on when I got my 21 and after about 6 months water had gotten under the black parts and left white spots on the surface. I hope yours work out.
  11. Torque Specs

    If you only need a few I'd search the internet and make a list to have when you do maintenance (wheel lugs, drain pan plugs etc.) If you want them all you will need at access the Service Manuals, I bought the CD-ROM from the HELM site for about $200.
  12. Alexa

    I find Alexa pretty useless. She won't index or read the USB drive I have my music stored on so I can't request an artist or album to be played, she only says you have to have an online music source and subscription to select music. I can make changes to the volume, temperature or other...
  13. Heat Shield

    I cleaned the bed of the truck above the shield with alcohol, let it dry and applied double faced automotive tape to the back of the shield then put it in place. I also used foil tape all around the edges (half on the bed and half on the shield) to help keep the edges from lifting.
  14. Noisy Ford Mud Guards

    So I found a possible cause for the sound I was hearing which is similar to what you are describing. When I opened the passenger side rear door I happened to bang it with my elbow and there is a piece of trim on the leading edge of the window frame that is loose and made a pretty loud...
  15. Brake Clicking

    My 2021 Lariat has done it since I got it. Not all the time and sometimes very quiet or not at all.
  16. Turn off all interior lights while idling?

    Yes, there are buttons on the dash to dim the cluster.
  17. Wiper Recall is back.

    I read through all the documents on the NHTSA website about the wiper recall and the Ford analysis predicted 1-2% failure rate over 5 years of service on about 450,000 trucks. I have my fingers crossed I don't have the failure but the odds are pretty good. I'm not going top stop driving the...
  18. Front Camera Washer Removed '23+?

    Easy to check, turn on the front camera and then wash the windshield, if you have the washer you'll see the camera get sprayed.
  19. Key Fob Panic button sensitivity

    I wrapped black electrical tape over the button, 3-4 layers and it's worked really well, only one or two activations over 2 years.
