My new ‘22 Platinum is in transit to my dealer (being shipped). The only deletion according to the window sticker is park assist 2.0. Everything else is there(built in navigation, blue cruise etc).

My question is, will I still have front parking sensors now that they deleted the park assist 2.0?

The way I am understanding it, the park assist will help you to parallel park and perpendicular park, which I probably wouldn’t use much anyway. But I do hope it has the sensors up front still, to tell me how close I am to cars objects when parking.

If anybody knows if the front sensors will still be there, and functional regardless of the park assist 2.0 delete, I’d welcome any input.

Thanks in advance for any info Gentlemen.

Do you have the 360 cameras or the Co-pilot Assist 2.0 (adaptive cruise)? I don’t have park assist and have the front parking sensors with those 2 options on my 21 Lariat.

This is the front end of a recent arrival KingRanch with every option available, but did have Park Assist delete.

Yes, I do have the 360 camera, and I have the Co-pilot Active 2.0, and Blue Cruise. I ordered it with almost every option accept the moonroof(I’m not a fan of moonroofs).

So it looks like I should have the front sensors too…as you do. Thank you dhrandy.

Ok great, I see that it has the front sensors. I was worried if they deleted the park
Assist as it says, that the parking sensors would be gone. But it looks that’s not the case. Thanks for the pic and reply Snakebitten, appreciate it.

I have a ‘19 King Ranch now, fabulous truck, and I optioned it out with all the tech four years ago when I ordered that. But one thing I did miss when I went from a Denali to my F150 was the front parking sensors. So I was glad to hear that Ford was adding them in 2021.

You don’t have park assist?

According to the sticker, deleted with a credit$

Honestly, I have no idea what "chip" is missing, because I got EVERYTHING else.

That’s why I’m like WTH? You have the outer sensors and all. Do you have the park assist button above the screen?

I do not
I figured sooner or later YOU would actually discover exactly what the Park Assist Delete actually is. Or was. Of course Ford could possibly use the same terminology and yet it not be the same exact removal of components/software? But like you seem to wonder, as well as I, it's difficult to know what my truck is actually missing.

Bluecruise, Accident prevention, pedestrian alert, adaptive cruise, every camera and the necessary modules for all those features. And then of course the 6 front bumper sensors.
I'm surprised the discount is $365
What's missing that Ford considers is worth that much considering the value$ they have been placing on some of the other deletes?

Just so you know, I am thrilled that I got a 4/11/2022 build that never got bumped, no chip-hold, and shipped almost immediately. Less than 72 hours.

Anyways, no hurry for an explanation. It'll make sense to someone like you at some point. Heck, it might even be an easy add-in and I'll get the last laugh. :)

That is really crazy. You have the outer sensors. If those are sensors I bet we could make that work pretty easy. I am going to look at your vin agian. see what your programming looks like.

That's just like you Jesse. You HAVE to know and make sense of things. It's how YOU are wired. Lol

It's a gift!

Be careful with that. There was a glitch in the Lariat packages in 2021. I have 360 cameras, co-pilot assist and package 502a and do NOT have front sensors. Kinda pissed me off because lower Lariat packages (500a and 501a) did have front sensors.

I don’t know if that glitch carried forward to later models.

I wonder if you compared my modules to yours you might be able to uncover something because I have everything, too, including the active park assist; though mine is a Lariat 502A. As I mentioned on the PowerBoost thread on the F150EcoBoost forum, my bet is there is a dedicated microcontroller module that manages all of the sensor inputs to control the steering, brakes and throttle to manage parking the truck. There has to be a good deal of software and memory needed to manage that complex a function. Plus, it needs to be able to distinguish between parallel parking and vertical parking on either side of the vehicle.

That's a good idea RossRR

I'll take a look

Yours is first. (39 modules listed)
Mine is second (41 listed)
