      Thank you to the forum and to the knowledgeable people here.

      My 2014 Police Interceptor Utility came w/ ; a 3.7 V6, 68k miles, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Park Aid, Cross Traffic Alert, Sync, Line-In, USB-In?, Rear-View Camera, Surveillance Mode, and Whelen IONs on the exterior mirrors.

      I took delivery of my PIU on September 2nd, and with what I learned here I was able to enable; key-less entry, remote start, dark mode, compass, Intelligent AWD and the theft alarm. I also disabled the seat belt reminder chime....on the driver's side.

      Does anyone else here have Surveillance Mode? I have a question about it.

      I hope it's OK to post this link.

      Here's my PIU:

      I had seen the brochures about new/different factory features for the 2016+ that included references to surveillance mode. Since yours looks more like an aftermarket install vs a factory install, I wasn't sure if it did anything different/more or if it was just a "dark car" like button to turn off all exterior/interior lighting.

      mine does appear aftermarket but it's definitely not a "dark car" like button. it is surveillance mode.

      I got the impression that all Surveillance Mode installs were through a third party chip/controller:

      It's described in the 2017 .pdf marketing brochure with a bunch of other standard or factory optional features, but I don't think I've ever seen an ordering code mentioned for it.

      "System can be configured to meet specific agency needs. For new-production ship-through, contact Crown North America at 1.800.321.4934, ext. 3425, or visit crown-na.com.

      sure. I can't get it to operate properly, and perhaps someone here can help. When the Surveillance Mode button is momentarily pressed it activates SM as if motion was detected behind the vehicle; it sounds an alert in the vehicle, turns on the rear-view camera, rolls up the driver's window, locks all doors, and the headlights & reverse lights flash. <--this all occurs at once.

      I'll shoot some video in the daytime when the truck is not in the garage.
      FYI: my Rear Park Aid, Cross Traffic Alert all work properly.

      I wonder if you need to do the instructions under "Toggle Surveillance Mode Input Sense"

      step 1 is to short the test pads on the module which is located on the left side of the dash behind the side dash panel.
      step 2 is open the driver door...which kinda makes it physically impossible to do step 1 because you can only access the module w/ the door open.

      when I shorted the test pads w/ the door open, I noticed that light one and four on the module do not illuminate at all. Light four is if you have the Hawkeye installed. I guess it isn't. And Light one is Input Sense. Status, light two and light three all light up.

      I have not forgotten about the video. the thing is I'd have to shoot it w/ multiple cameras just to show you exactly what it does.
