    I have been all over the places I can think of, and I cannot find a spreadsheet or any document with as-built codes for a 2013 PIU. I have found quite a few LINKS but they all go to an iCloud page that no longer works. I am mostly trying to work with the stereo, Bluetooth, and rear-view camera...

    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...
