    Anybody play with Arduino / CAN-BUS? Looking for the front camera trigger

    Hey all, greetings from the Flex forums. As you probably know, the Explorer gets all the fun new technology while the Flex has been completely forgotten by Ford. Pretty much the only difference between a 2013 and 2019 Flex is Sync3 and paint colors -- no new features. They haven't even...

    Rearview Camera Problems

    Was running errands, and everything was fine. Except at one point, my backup camera stopped coming on. The sensors still beep, but instead of the camera shot, I get my home screen. And, the Ford logo that normally appears when I start the car, is gone. Anyone else run into this problem...

    Installing Backup Camera and 8" Screen in my 2013 Explorer - Is it possible?

    Hi, I purchased a 2013 Explorer a few years ago and did not opt for the backup camera and 8" screen. Is it possible to have this done aftermarket, if so will a Ford Dealership do it or do I need to go to an aftermarket auto accessory store? I would prefer to do this over selling purchasing a...

    Rear bumper replaced now camera grainy

    I've always loved the rear camera resolution of my 2013 Explorer. I had to have the 3 piece non-painted portion of the bumper replaced.

    Rear View Camera and Trailer Hitch

    I LOVE IT!!!!! I backed it up, nudged the hitch with the ball, put the Explorer in park, hit the brake, shut it off, walked around back, gave the trailer a shove and dropped it right on the ball. That easy, that fast. Incredible!!!! What is especially cool is that the dashed line...
