Hello everyone,

This upgrade was a long time coming, but was put on hold while the dealership did a warranty fix on my radio reception. Ended up needing to replace the antennae mount and its wiring. Only took the dealership about four months to fix it, but I digress.

The actual physical swap was really easy. I used the 4d video as a guide and everything went smoothly. The one thing I forgot to get before the swap was some double sided automotive tape to mount the GPS, so not quite done.

I have the Sync 3 upgraded to the current 18093. Surprisingly, the APIM I purchased off of eBay was suppose to be a non Nav, but once it fired up, I had navigation. The about screen shows I have 1.15 NA maps.

Programming the APIM has been a little problematic. The MFT used the following:

2014 EX XLT As Built
Accessory Protocol Interface Module Inst
7D0-01-01 2221 1000 6B97
7D0-01-02 0401 4000 0221
7D0-02-01 5553 0004 0086
7D0-02-02 8200 0000 005D
7D0-02-03 0000 DC
7D0-03-01 014B 5803 0082
7D0-04-01 0103 0200 00E2
7D0-04-02 0001 DE

I used the following As Built from a similarly equipped 2017:

2017 EX XLT As Built
Accessory Protocol Interface Module Inst
7D0-01-01 2A2A 0502 0C40
7D0-01-02 0289 0004 9A03
7D0-02-01 5553 0104 C047
7D0-02-02 0200 8000 005D
7D0-02-03 0005 E1
7D0-03-01 0000 0002 00DD
7D0-04-01 0100 0100 0BE9
7D0-04-02 0002 DF
7D0-05-01 1A2C 1A2C 2B94
7D0-05-02 FCDA
7D0-06-01 805E
7D0-07-01 0A00 3300 001C
7D0-07-02 0000 1770 0067
7D0-07-03 0056 5688 0015
7D0-07-04 886A

I started off with reprogramming the APIM with all the data from the 2017. Right off the bat, I had issues with volume cranked way up and the volume know not working. That was fixed using the spreadsheets (don't remember the exact code for it, but I should note it in case I have to start over with the AB data.)

I do have some remaining issues that I have yet to resolve.

  1. Clock shows --:-- despite the time being correct in the settings.
  2. None of the preset station buttons work to change the radio. I can long press them to reprogram the buttons to the current station, but a short press doesn't change the station
  3. My climate section isn't working. The temps are not listed and the heated seats do not work. On the home screen, the heated seats are grayed out. I have no controls over the rear climate.
  4. The voice button/switch on my steering wheel does not work after the switch.

The first two issues were also experienced by a user on the F150 forums, but an actual fix was not posted from what I can tell. I've messaged the user and waiting to hear back. FORScan - software to enable/disable features in your truck - Ford F150 Forum - Community of Ford Truck Fans

Some of the settings I was looking into:

Aux Input Installed (Feature 1) & Ignition Type (IT) & Speaker Fader in menu
APIM 7D0-01-01 xxxx x4xx xxzz (have a keyed ignition, not push button)

Climate Front Zone & Steering Wheel Angle Sensor (SWAS) & HD Radio, DAB
APIM 7D0-01-01 xxxx xxx3 xxzz (have a HD capable ACM)

Climate Control Type
APIM 7D0-01-02 xxxx x2xx xxzz


Heated Steering Wheel & Heated/Cooled Seats
APIM 7D0-01-01 xxxx xxxx x3zz (heated seats only)

Rear Climate Control Type & Heated Windshield HMI (HW HMI) & Common Global Electrical Architecture (CGEA)
APIM 7D0-01-02 xxxx xxxx 9xzz (not sure about this one; apparently 9 is default)

Parking Brake Type
APIM 7D0-02-02 xx0x xxxx xxzz (mechanical, not electrical)

SYNC 3 Theme
APIM 7D0-02-01 xxxx xDxx xxzz (GT boot screen)
APIM 7D0-03-01 xxxx x4xx xxzz (GT theme)

Drivetrain Type
APIM 7D0-03-01 xxxx xxx3 xxzz (4WD)



What is the following and should it be done?

PAM APIM Display Functions 11-18MY PAM 736-03-01 xxxx xxx* xxzz 0 (SYNC 2 Vehicles), 8 (SYNC 3 Vehicles) Change for SYNC 2 to 3 upgrades



I'll see if I can find a free hosting site for some pics.

Thanks in advance and I do appreciate any input.

Went with the professional... had Jason from Fordpimods send me the correct code. Running through the checklist of issues, they all seem to be working now, though I forgot to check the steering wheel button. Have to do it in the morning.

Thanks Jason

Might be worth updating your thread with the codes you got, as others might run into the same issues.

Seeing that this was the work of someone else (Jason from Fordpimods), I don't really know if this is something I should post. I would think it could lead to lost revenue. In my case, it was money well spent.

I agree. Do not post.

Exactly the same problems I am facing. Tried many options but no luck.

Email Jason from Fordpimods. Pay the small fee to have him send you the programming. Its well worth it and worked perfectly.

Yup, figured that it would be the case for me too and already placed the order with him.

Does the climate radial dial pop-up for you in Sync 3 when you use the hardware buttons to change the temperature? My volume radial dial works fine, but when I try to change the temp, the climate radial dial does not pop up. Normally not a problem, but with CarPlay/Android Auto I'm not able to see what the climate is set to without going back to Sync3

I have the touch panel, so don't have this issue

Welcome to the Forum jordan.:wave:
I'm not familiar with a "Climate Radial Dial" in either the MFT is had previously or the Sync 3 I have now.:dunno: In any case, my Climate is always set on 'Auto' so I know what the setting is. I always use voice command to set it as well.

Thanks Peter!

When I was in a 2016 rental with Sync3, if you use the hardware buttons to change the temperature, a radial dial would popup on the screen to show you what the temperature is set to, much like if you change the volume and the volume pops up (example here: https://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/150623_157_ford_764A0465.jpg ). After upgrading my 2014 to Sync3, I don't have the climate popup while using the hardware buttons and I'm not seeing the exact option to program with Forscan 3 to modify that.

Which Ford vehicle was the rental? An Escape? Sync 3 only came out in the 2017 Explorer.

I've changed both radio volume and temperature settings and only the volume adjustment produces the radial dial.
EDIT: Just went out to try this and you are correct. There is a little dial that pops up. It seems to be smaller than the volume one. I guess I've never noticed it since I use the voice command and don't look at the screen when doing so..

Emailed Dan at 2gfusions and its a known issue with the Explorers that the climate dial doesn't show up. Most likely a software change on the new models that came with Sync3.
