let me begin by saying i know absolutely nothing about forscan.. but would anybody happen to know how to turn off the enhanced engine noise inside the cabin of the st? it’s killing me.. the ford dealer couldn’t figure it out
Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
This has been discussed in this thread. Found the posts by using 'Search' feature. So far there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it OFF even with FORScan. If it bothers you that much, then just stay out of 'Sport' mode as Mike suggested.

you removed the enhanced engine noise on a 2020 explorer st?

Yes, there is zero noise coming out of the speakers. It's quite pleasant how quiet it is driving now.

IDS tool. A web search reveals that the interior engine sound enhancement can be turned off by a dealer tech using the IDS. That is now the project for today. I will report back.

It is done! Took the dealer all of 10 min. FREE ............. No more exhaust sound enhancement ............ Sooooooo......... Yah don't need the Forscan app to do this. And, because the dealer used their equipment, it will stay shut off. "Gotta Love It !"

This is the identical system that is used on the Mustang and the pickups with the exhaust sound enhancement feature. The techs are trained on this. If you are getting pushback from the service writer, go over his/her head to the service manager. Ford issued a TSB long ago instructing the dealers on how to do this. Hell, it's in the shop manual. If you still get pushback, you need to seek out a different dealer that won't blow smoke up your a**.

Did you reenable it when you sold it?

Has anyone used the IDS tool to disable the double horn honk? I ask as it is not active on the PIU.
