Has anyone else noticed battery voltage while driving no longer dipping below 14v regardless of tricks to keep it bumped up IE blower on 5+ etc. I used to be able to show the voltage drop while changing blower settings... No more. Maybe something has been snuck in. 🤷


Edit: All lies. Truck back to 12.~V on low blower again today. Strange.

Got one today

WOW, I feel like I’m really far behind. The last update I had for my 2021 Limited is 4.2.4. I’m new to the site, so I’m not sure if different year models receive updates on different schedules or if all the F150’s should be about the same. Should I be concerned?

Don't feel bad. The last update I received for my 2022 Lariat was 3.5.2 on 9/15/22. :(

How far behind do you think you actually are?
I bet it's much less than you might think. :)

The distance between 4.2.4 & 6.1.0 is barely a lane change.

UPDATE and yall are going to think i am NUTS or paranoid or wally world is cyber attacking my truck
rugedraw confirmed i had no update, THANK YOU very much.

today i went to chiropractor, truck sat for 45 minutes or so OFF but able to see wifi all around it.
got in truck and EVERYTHING booted up perfect and speedy
even pandora resumes where song left off when i shut off truck and took phone with me


then i went to WALMART, parked very near spot i did yesterday , near garden shop
i needed a new lawn tractor battery.
i was in store about 40 minutes, yes they were slow to ring me up in auto area.

i walk out to truck, click to unlock, walk around and put new battery in bed and secured it,

got in truck and pressed START. truck started... dash came up... SYNC and radio screen remained BLANK, no sounds, no screen. I waited and started to count 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand etc. got to 39 and screen pops back to life with my 75th screen and then it slowly reconnected phone and started pandora back up. and a brief flash of screen to black and boom everything back to normal.

around walmart parking, there is a taco bell about 300 feet to the west and whataburger about 200 feet west of truck. directly in-front of truck about 300 feet is very tall high tension power lines

my phone could see numerous wifi presences , but only connected to my trucks internet.

is it possible walmart is trying to hack my truck, or something else in this particular parking area?

I highly doubt it. My truck has randomly taken forever to boot up the Sync screen a few times in the 2 years I've had it now.

Apparently, HAL likes Wal-Mart and Taco Bell, but will not admit this to his human owner.
