    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Hi Bill, I'm the one that remote starting works for, but I don't have the same symptoms as you. I don't get the hill descent/tract control lights, and my blinkers/horn don't flash/beep. My headlights turn on and off very rapidly as well as the start button led and the leds above near the cockpit...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Sounds like we have the same problem for sure. I did make a post about mine, we were able to get the dealership to reproduce the issue and open a case with Ford, which sounds like good news but it's not - nothing happened after that. They replaced the ignition switch, checked those ground wires...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    We are taking our ST for a long trip for xmas, (these days it sits the garage 8 days a week) and it is almost sure to happen at least once, so I will try the the push and hold the start button to see if that has any effect.

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    That's a good idea. I still have the adaptor from upgrading my 2016's Sync2 to Sync3. Thank you!

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Gotcha, I should also mention that I've been able to have my dealership reproduce and witness the problem, which is how they are able to open the case with ford. Without them reproducing, they cannot officially open a case with ford. Unfortunately, Ford has told my dealership they need us to...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Watch the video: Several other videos also document this symptom. It is definitely not normal. I understand that you think it's an accessory mode thing, but I have been stranded for 45 minutes before I found the remote start work-around. Believe me, this is not normal. I grew up on a farm...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Hi, Please see my post: Major issues on 3rd day, 55 miles. I have the same issue if yours also blinks the headlights when you hit the start button. I have brought it to ford multiple times, I have had them do multiple updates. Still, the problem persists. Most people I've read about are able...

    Nope, nada. Are you having the same issue?

    Explorer brake controller?

    It is 3035-P - this is the one I bought for my 2016 and when I transferred the harness and controller to my 2020, it worked perfectly.

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Please see my previous reply - you will see I got them to open an official case. I am under the impression that it may have something to do with the BCM or similar and a reset of the BCM can cause the problem right away, so if you get them to apply TSB 49128 it may exhibit the problem...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Update: My ST was just in the shop for over a month. At first they could not reproduce the problem, which really is the reason why this isn't fixed yet. The issue is that it is so random, but for me at least it is reproducible at least once every couple of weeks. So when I brought it in I...

    Sync 4

    Seeing as the old edge just got sync 4 during a refresh cycle: 2021 Ford Edge Gets A New 12-Inch SYNC 4 Infotainment System | Carscoops I think this should bring us hope that the explorer will get sync 4 maybe next year or the year after, which opens the door to us retrofitting sync 4 into our...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Thanks metromike, I will definitely let you know if they fix it and hope you do the same! The last updates they did where a couple of modules, but not the APIM as for some reason they said ford was having server issues that day. The car did work for a time after the update but that's probably...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Just an update that I am still having this starting issue. Plagued us terribly this weekend - car was having fits starting. Headlights flash but no action when you click start. The dealer said they had fixed it by updating some modules. Not. Just scheduled an appointment again for warranty. 2...

    Need crossbars for ST

    They are radically different from the 2011-2019 generation. My dealer ordered the wrong ones (2019 version) twice and sent them to me. When I attempted to install, they were not even close to workable.

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    So apparently the dealership can't do much unless they can directly reproduce the problem while the machine is hooked up. Is that seriously how it is these days? I can have an major problem that occurs twice a month but they can't fix it unless it happens while it's in the techs hands? Sometimes...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    Hi Metromike, I'd love to hear if you know more yet! My explorer really was crabby today and I scheduled a visit to the dealer tomorrow. I was able to capture the evidence on video pretty well. I even drove the car home, which is a 25 minute, 12 mile commute - plenty of time to charge the...

    Need crossbars for ST

    Mine came "dealer installed" which means as soon as I bought the vehicle they had to order them. We tried for months to get them in before the correct ones finally came in. In the meantime, with ski season about to start I had already decided that the harbor freight cross bars for $70 would be...

    Explorer brake controller?

    Thank you!!! I've looked a few times but did not think to look behind the airbag in that area. I only looked around where it was on my 2016 Platinum. This is really great, I'll try to get it installed before the new year and will report back with my finding and other pics if possible.

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    When the car isn't in a starting mood, it won't matter if the door/seatbelt, etc. is done, nothing will happen if you hit the start button. If you walk away and come back 20 minutes later, it seems likely to start. This doesn't seem to make my wife happy, because then she has to take my car...

    2020 Explorer Starting Problems

    I have exactly the same symptoms as the videos and reported them right after I bought mine, I think it happened that very weekend. Has happened maybe once more since then (Sept) but yesterday it was very stubborn. Only trick I know is that remote start on the fob will cause it to start. Hit the...

    Neat things you have found out on the 6th gen.

    On my st, tow/haul mode gives transmision temp gauge in the cluster.

    Explorer brake controller?

    Curt is listing this brake controller harness: Trailer Brake Controller Harness (Packaged) as compatible with the 2020 Explorer ST/Plat (possibly more). This is the same harness that I had on my 2016 Platinum. This leads me to believe that the brake controller harness is available for use and...

    Folding Power Mirrors - 2020 Explorer & Aviator

    I know it sounds trivial but this makes a good difference IMO. Whether or not I snag on the mirrors while nearly sliding along the garage wall is the difference between swearing off a big car next time.

    Front hitch

    Had a front hitch on my 2016, wondering if anyone knows about one for the 2020? I think they mount the same place as the bull guard, and the PIU shows a bull guard so I have hope. Has anyone removed the plastic guards underneath to expose the frame?
