  1. Why does Ford hate Tom Petty?

    Follow-up: I switched the "button" assignment of the Tom Petty Station and another Sirius station and that fixed it. Go figure. Ford's sync engineers would do well to quit adding new features until they get this kind of thing well sorted.
  2. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    my advice (free advice is often worth the price paid): keep on trucking. It's highly unlikely you'll strip the splines badly enough to stop you cold. Ask a dealer to take a look at your convenience.
  3. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    If you want actual Ford technicians to work on your truck, you need to be an executive at Ford (and work in Dearborn)! :)
  4. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    why bother with all that work? FoMoCo & your dealer would do all that for you, no? Plus there's the possibility that the recall will do it again w/better parts at some point in the future.
  5. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    The recall letter says Ford is working on a different and hopefully final fix for this, but there's no expected availability date mentioned.
  6. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    depends on how much free time you (and your truck) have! Mine has been in the shop 55 days since I bought it. :(
  7. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    If your truck's splines are nearly stripped and you hit the accelerator and the last spline says 'F you, I'm done" and then your truck doesn't move, that could be really bad, right? My dealer service guy said he had a customer with a truck like mine who had to be towed in. I asked him if he...
  8. Can anyone tell me what this is (part failure on axle)......?

    in case anyone missed it, here's the recall notice: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2023/RCAK-23V896-5442.pdf
  9. Why does Ford hate Tom Petty?

    dang, that would drive me nuts. Has a dealer reset or re-flashed any of your truck's gear?
  10. Why does Ford hate Tom Petty?

    well, there are no OTA updates available and I'm not going to screw around with a manual update. This is annoying, not life-changing, so i'll keep fiddling to see I can find a workaround. thanks for the input, y'all.
  11. Why does Ford hate Tom Petty?

    My truck has sync 4 version 23159_PRODUCT, revision 915.
  12. Why does Ford hate Tom Petty?

    hmm, I thought the truck had/has its own cellular connectivity for all navigation and infotainment purposes. I will investigate and report back.
  13. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    lucky you. My PowerBoost is at 36K miles and is on its third set of axles.
  14. Why does Ford hate Tom Petty?

    I have the B&O unleashed (what an overhyped name) system and one single preset for Sirius, channel 711, Tom Petty's Buried Treasure keeps losing its marbles. I've attached some photos, but here's the sequence: - start truck and sometimes the soft button for the station has "lost" its logo and...
  15. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    LOL, I'm on my third set of axles. I don't think that's the fix you want.
