this morning on way to ford to get battery checked, etc the notice that 6.8 was ready to install
so i told the service manager to ignore it and i would update at home tonight

so he comes out and say we downloaded 6.8 and there is a 3 hr update pending
so we are going to do it.???? i said hesitantly yes

Best of luck my friend. I think mine downloaded 6.8.0 last night, but it just says that there was an update and says nothing else germane, like which update it was.

update
new battery CHECK
6.8 rescheduled for 8 pm
ipma reprogramming did not have to be done for battery stuff, which is good as i didnt want to have to re program my forscan changes
service manager winked at trying to get super duty ipma data ,, he said its coming......but no date on his end either
he said he looked at my forscan changes and left them alone, and made sure his f150 was same same, as built he says.....nope ford didnt build it like that.
:love: :love: :love: :love:
gained 27 miles dte from when i dropped her off
that quickly disappeared in about 10 miles at 70
i am blessed to have a dealer service area that have f f150s and have a sense of lets do good

Wait a minute...I misread your PM. They did do the IPMA update. Also the PSCM, PCM, ABS and BCM.

Good news: You can now turn on the turn signal camera feature. ;)

Turn signal cameras and 50/50 view at speed should work. Congrats on a dealer actually doing updates for you. 😎

You have a solid dealer.
I’m also fortunate to have a solid dealer.

Looks like we are the exception to the norm around here.

no they told me they were doing the IPMA...and i asked if it was the new update? like a dummy i was UNCLEAR
the tech was going to do the IPMA update to fix the battery charge system ..that was explained when i picked it up. that they didnt need to do it as the truck worked perfect once a GOOD battery was placed in service

when they tol me 3 to 4 hrs, it was because the tech was unsure as to why the 2nd battery took a powder and was afraid the truck would not do the charge correctly with new battery,
i knew before i left the BMS stuff was working, the fan on 5 for 30 seconds works very well
at stimulating it

so i asked when i picked it up if he had done the super duty upcoming ipma for turn signal with trailer bit. HE WINKED and said its coming, but he doe snot have the files yet.
of course i smartly said you have 2 2024 super duties on lot, one limited and one lariat 450...can you download it for me.

so now at 8 pm, 6.8 is to load, and we wait for the new ipma stuff that we are eagerly awaiting.

my service writers both have 150s and an expedition
he copied screen shot my new as built s before the start and confirmed they were still good
plus he uses forscan to change his truck and exp
they are not as fwd thinking as we are, but he does like the glare free and the some of the other things
he was skeptical about glare free, it took a few days to sell him and few days of driving in dark to get to work ad was sold

yes i am happy these 2 guys are user friendly

wonder what that was ? only thing that was screwy was the eng temp had the oil pressure gauge next to it
vice eng temp, then trans temp, then over on right the boost gauge then fuel level
all my phone stuff worked including pandora,
what grabbed my eye 1st was DTE was higher than when i arrived
then it settled down to pretty close to what it was at arrival, but still higher than when i arrived
they did do a drive down the street to verify lane camera and 360 stuff was working. not sure if it was required?
did it indicate any thing like what you have for your truck?
i dont have an invoice yet, as it was all warranty.
i will get it tuesday

Yes, it is the same IPMA software that I have. No calibration was required when I did mine.

i think it got really low right before the 3 days of below 9 f and it couldnt recover, even after being charged up
