I stand corrected, just went out and tested / ran up the windows, once it is, thank you.just push the button once and it just runs the accessories. That is what Ford considers ACC mode, like what the keyed systems were.
Interesting. Please add your F150 year and trim to your profile or a signature block, there might be a clue in that. Mine is a '22 Lariat 500A for example.it only cycles between ignition on and off. there is no legit accessories mode on mine.
I know what you mean. There isn’t a way to have the old ACC mode on this push button system. If radio operation is what you desire - no need for ignition. Just hit the power button on the radio while the ignition is off. That’s closest to the old ACC functionit only cycles between ignition on and off. there is no legit accessories mode on mine.
boom! i want old school accessories mode where i can only utilize the radio. No climate controls or etc..I know what you mean. There isn’t a way to have the old ACC mode on this push button system.

Just an addendum, if you have a powerboost, you get full ac in accessory modeOK, so I just went out and 'tested' on my '22 Lariat 500A; when I push the 'start' button once without touching the brake:
The green light on the Start button blinks rapidly; I get a message on my info screen saying "Full Accessory Power On" which can be dismissed by pushing the "OK" button on the steering wheel. Everything keeps working without interruption no matter how much I open / close the driver's door.
- I can listen to the audio system, no problem
- I can run the climate control fan at whatever speed and vent outlets selected, no problem
- I cannot get actual cooling AC of course (the engine isn't running to drive the AC compressor)
All above with my keyfob in the vehicle of course.
Not sure why the OP can't replicate that, but IMO the behavior I'm seeing on my truck is exactly analogous to a 'traditional key-start vehicle' with the key in the "accessory" position.
One might wonder if, for whatever reason, the OP's battery is below the level that allows all this to work due to its 'battery saver' feature (only a wild guess)?
This is the Wonderfull thing of the powerboost, you get cold AC without the engine on.
Ok-- I still don't understand fully. I've got the Powerboost Lariat 501a, and also love the idea of full Air conditioning while no ICE is running. To do this, I start the truck (with foot on brake). Questions:Just an addendum, if you have a powerboost, you get full ac in accessory mode
