2018 Platinum, though I can still lock/unlock and remote-start, the listed date for updating mileage, oil life and tire pressure is now 4 days old (2/12/22) even though I have tried many times to "update" the data by swipping the app down on my iphone. Really weird if you ask me.
Searched our database and still don't see anyone's creative success.
Somebody has surely come up with a way to mount a wireless charger in our Explorers. Short of just plopping one of those discs down at the front of the console, we need a collective "think tank" approach to the challenge...
Okay, went out to check fluids, search for leaks and just stare at my 2018 Platinum 3.5EB. I even removed the beauty cover just to take a look. All was great, with a small exception that 36K mileage has put some debris in places. I blow that out another day.

I want to change the turn signal bulbs, front and rear on my '18 Explorer Platinum.
I am afraid of the hyper-flash and wondering what others have done. Specific bulb? Add resistors?

I need some clarification on whether my '18 Platinum is just GDI or also PFI.
My question is in regards to preventative maintenance for valve deposits.
I currently feed the EX with 93 octane from a top-tier supplier. She runs better, more power and a couple MPG's as...
Hey Explorer Community,
Living near Memphis, I am looking for someone willing to make a couple of changes to my '18 Platinum.
I know I want the lane-change blinker increased to 6/7 blinks instead of 3 and any other that might enhance my experience.
AND what are your favorite changes to the...
Does anyone know the location for the sensor that dims the driver's and rear-view mirror?
I am just curious since there is no visible photoelectric cell in the rear-view mirror that is visible.
New here, but a "forum" member for decades. Corvette Forum and Glock Forum are the two longest-running homes for me.
Just wanted to say I am enjoying the '18 Platinum. Lots of premium appointments AND that wonderful Ecoboost powerplant.
I am always looking to better any...
