      Thanks jmr061,

      I know that on the 17 keyed PIU, you can hit the lock button under the light controls and remove the key and it will keep the engine running just as secure-idle did on the earlier vehicles-with the shifter locked. Ford now refers to this as police engine Idle. Is there a different feature as well?

      Intelligent Access are vehicles with Push to Start ignition. Makes sense that Secure-Idle is for these vehicles only since there is no physical ignition key. FOB leaves the vehicle and you can't shift out of park.

      Police Engine Idle - http://www.fleet.ford.com/resources/ford/general/pdf/police-vehicles/2017 Police Interceptor Utility New Product Updates 3-14-16.pdf

      I should add that prior to the 2017 PI model Ford had no factory option for any sort of police engine idle feature. Any solution was aftermarket.

      I'm going to plug in tomorrow and see if the value I used on my F150 is in the BCM.

      How about Auto Relock? If you accidentally hit the unlock button or whatever reason vehicle will relock in 1 min.automatically if door isn't opened. That's also in BCM. Does anybody know the values?

      A 11-15 Explorer is not the same electrical platform as a 15+ F150 and BCM programming is completely different.

      I removed the momentary turn signal flash dealy altogether with "0", people behind you don't appreciate when you flip the lever from one side to the other to try and cancel the signals in a panic:snicker: o_O

      The Interceptor Order Guide for 2017 specifies this for Police Engine Idle Feature:

      Police Engine Idle feature
      – This feature allows you to leave the engine running and prevents your vehicle from unauthorized use when outside of your vehicle. Allows the key to be removed from ignition while vehicle remains idling.

      In case anyone is looking for the codes to end hyper flash.

      Bcm

      726 13 01 changes to 0000 0000
      726 14 01 changes to 0000 0000

      Did this for a 13 Limited. Lights on and off, no hyper flash

      Thanks to the Taurus forum member nevcofleet

      I'm not sure if you guys are still using the 2011-2105MY spreadsheet in my sig, but I updated it with the turn signal duration and hyperflash from the last couple of pages...

      In case you don't have the link to my spreadsheet, I just added tabs for the different IPC types as they have different features in the as-built data. I will be adding decodings for each of them.

      I am now tracking changes for 2011-2018 MY.

      Could somebody tell me what the traffic message channel is and does it show up under Nav screen or where? Don't know anything about it.

      It shows traffic digitally transmitted by FM radio stations instead of Sirius NavTraffic. If you don't subscribe to Sirius, I would enable it. I believe it shows on the map and 'show traffic' screen

      I enabled traffic message -under Nav menu I hit traffic which gave me the options- Traffic On Route (not lit up) -AllTraffic-Traffic Ahead. Both of the last 2 just say No reported traffic incidents. No option of show traffic and no traffic shown. On a brighter note the Nav (allow while in motion works).

      That means you literally changed your lane in less than 3 seconds when the whole point of a turn signal is to warn other motorists that you are making a lane change which takes a little more time. The point is not to signal AS you're already changing lanes.

      Police engine lets you take out the key and the car will keep idling and won't let you shift it out of park while secure idle for civilian vehicles turns off the vehicle if you attempt to shift it out of park without the key.

      It doesn't shut off the engine, it just locks the shifter exactly like police engine idle does on keyed vehicles and lets you take the IA fob away from the vehicle without anyone being able to steal it.

      My contact with Ford says that this is the same function, one is for keyed vehicles and one for keyless(intelligent access). It was not called Secure Idle due to legal reasons(another 3rd party company uses this name) - as jmr061 mentioned, this function on Interceptors was not available until the 2017MY.

      Guys, Hello! I decided to look for an answer from you on the forum, because you feel that you are good at delving into the topic. The situation is the following. I have Explorer 2016 lim sync2, my son's Explorer 2017 lim sync3. Camera we are factory, all the blocks are. I don't have the dynamic lines in the rear camera, it has it. I analyzed the difference between our configni and other machines, studied the forums, but was not able to find the solutions. I feel it's close. I now hit the combination on the address Lines Rear Camera Equipped 11-16MY PSCM 730-01-03 **xx zz 00=Not Present, 01=Present. If I put it in 01, I have a couple of errors in the ABS. Can someone tell me what it is and how to get around this problem. With respect. (Sorry for my English, I use online translator.)

      Another incomprehensible thing is. When you turn on the heated front seats out from under them starts to blow the cool air as if included ventilation. Can anyone come across? How can this be addressed?

      If anybody discovers the values for secure idle (11-15 MY) it would be appreciated if you sure the info.
