    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    I assume OP is not using anti-lock brake stickers in the image

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    Looks good. Couple of questions: 1. What is ABS? 2. Do you have a link to purchase?

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping the seller of the limited badge might have a platinum badge also but no luck. I'll be getting the ecoboost badge though. Probably going to end up plastidipping the platinum badge since I can't seem to find one.

    Platinum Sensor Locations

    Does anyone know where I can find a map or location guide to the front sensors for a 2018 Platinum? I have adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and parallel park assist. I am trying to determine the level of effort to relocate whichever ones are necessary to...

    Push Bar for Explorer

    Bumping this up to see if anyone knows of or has installed a grille guard on a platinum that did not interfere with adaptive cruise control. I found some sensor blocking stickers that can be put over just the blocked parking sensors so that wont be a concern. Just worried about the adaptive...

    Max Tire Size

    Ive been toying with the idea of ridge grapplers in this size for a while and you seem to be the only person who has actually tried this so hoping you’d be able to answer whether in your opinion 265/65R18 would fit. Calculating the difference between 275/55R20 these are -0.9% in circumference...

    Dashboard Mat/Cover

    My 2018 Explorer Platinum and I are moving to Arizona in a few weeks. As much as I hate to add a dash mat, I think it’s going to be necessary. Anybody have a dash mat on their 5th gen that could snap some pics and/or give me the product details and a brief review? Haven’t had any luck finding...

    2018 Sport w/ Borla '16-'17 Catback Installed!

    Thanks for confirming this works and for posting the vids. Sounds great! I am finally convinced that this is the way I will go as well. Edit: I am not having much success finding any 2.25 -> 4.0 dual tips. Would you mind sharing the details on the ones you have?

    Thanks for confirming. That’ll make the job much easier.

    How to: 2011+ Grille Removal with pictures

    All of these grills look great and I am looking to plastidip mine soon. I just went out to get a better look and it seems the Platinum grill is solid with airflow only coming from around the grill itself. I'm thinking it could be dipped without removing the grill at all. Anyone with a Platinum...

    Borla for the Sport

    I see what you mean on the exhaust tips. So based on that I could just get the previous version borla exhaust and if I wanted quad exhaust tips I could have the stock ones or similar ones welded on I guess. Anybody foresee any issues with that approach?

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    At this point I’m more curious what is going on. I have thought about this as a feature with the only downside being if I left it unlocked at some point anyone could drive away with it.

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    Both times we used the interior lock button. To be clear, when the known fob is not in the vehicle, this method locks the doors appropriately.

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    Couple more test results below. I’ll be bringing it in to the dealer this weekend as I’m pretty sure it’s a defect now. I’ll update with what they tell me. 1. My wife was able to drive to work without the keys, turn it off, lock the door, leave it for 8 hours, unlock using the keypad on the...

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    That I’ve done and I was able to leave town, turn the car off, and restart the car and drive home. This was done on accident and the reason I started the thread. I’m not ready to drive it off and turn it off for an extended time yet because if it doesn’t start back up I’ll have to have my wife...

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    Currently there is no setting to disable it on my vehicle. I’ve searched everywhere that’s been recommended and haven’t found a key. I’ll be taking it to a dealer next week to see if they can tell me anything. I haven’t had a chance to do more testing on it but I’ll be doing that early next...

    Borla for the Sport

    You think there would be any issues with the mufflers though? The 16 is a dual exhaust with one pipe coming from each muffler and the 18 is a quad exhaust with two pipes coming from each muffler. I don’t know a whole lot about exhausts/mufflers but I assumed this was the main reason for the...

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    I’ll take it in next week. I did ask about the key when I bought it and they said it’s about 50/50 on a used vehicle whether they have 1 or 2 keys. I’m not really expecting they can do much about the second key but I will see if they can figure out why it operates normally without any key present.

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    I’m still under 36k. You think I should just bring it in to the dealer?

    2018 Platinum starts without key

    Thanks! I appreciate the testing. I guess I need to tear it apart and find this key. I think jmr must be right since I’ve never gotten a warning that the key wasn’t detected. Thanks for the insight guys, I’ll update if I find it.
