    FordPass Connection Issue

    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. I have...

    Wireless Charger Mod?

    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...

    Checking Transmission Fluid

    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. To the point, I wanted to check...

    Dark-Mode Work around?

    I am wanting to be able to have the exterior lights on my '18 Limited totally dark when I am just sitting with the engine running. I see where this is referred to as "dark mode" and seems to be paired with the PIU model. Is there a work-around to accomplish this? With all the computations...

    GDI Clarification on '18 Platinum

    Hello Explorer-Land 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...

    Hello everyone, 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...
