      Sorry about that. New Forscan Update Allows Module Programming

      Just wanted to confirm you got it to work using these settings on ForScan... Only because when the Dealer said it was enabled on their tool, it did not take effect on my '17. It did on the '16 though.

      —Dark Mode 16-18MY BCM 726-32-01 xxxx x*xx xxzz 0=Disabled, 1=Enabled

      I did get it to work on my 17... But I had to change 2 addresses.

      The quick change setting where I click enabled/disabled caused the headlights to flash a couple of times, but didn't actually enable dark mode.

      I was able to successfully enable dark mode, kill the seat belt chime/light, etc.

      Very happy. :)

      For the ‘17 models “Dark Car” doesn’t do anything. You have to enable “Silent mode” aka Silent 5, In addition to Dark Car. Worked swimmingly with FORScan. Dealers could easily do it too.

      I figured it out just now. On the 2017 explorer to get all 4 menus (Nav, Climate, Phone and entertainment) the FORScan code is:
      IPC 720-05-01 xxBx xxxx xxzz
      The spreadsheet has an 8, but that removes the other menus. Place the letter B instead, it gave me all four.
