Simple stuff right....so I threw in the DRL request as well. No dice with this particular dealer. They say its impossible that mine does not have the ability. I even wrote down the specific steps linked from this thread to get them headed the right way.
I contacted Ford Customer Service on the forum and they were very responsive but limited with what they can do on the technical side.
So my question is has anyone had this process successfully performed around the Atlanta, Ga area or NE Alabama? I would like to find one that has done it previously.
I have called 6 dealers in the Atlanta metro area and have gotten every answer from it can't be done, we have never heard of that, heck well plug it up to the computer but it will take all day for us to try, to please hold for the parts department....I hung up on the last one. Quotes also range from $70 to $150 just to plug in, not even perform the change.
Can we start a list of knowledge able dealers for others to access? Thanks in advance for your responses.
Well....picked the truck up after 5 complete work days at the shop.
Oil change and tire rotate....Check.
Replaced rear window switch....Check.
Geeked up plastic on the sun glass overhead console door by using screwdriver to pry against to get rear window switch out....Check.
Not painting running board where paint has flaked off after sending two sets of pictures to Ford to evaluate repair vs. replace. These are the geniuses that painted the paint to match running boards when they swapped them at time of purchase....Check. (FX4 Appearance running boards are shipped paint to match when ordered from parts dept)
Pulled out housing cover over middle rear seat belt real while goofing with rear window....Check.
Complementary wash job performed by Ray Charles with Ronnie Milsap assisting....Check.
New Large scratch added to left rear door while getting in to bust seat belt housing cover or during Ray & Ronnie's wash job....Check.
Not having one clue about DRL's nor one inkling to listen to the steps provided from this forum nor making one call to someone at Ford with a clue....Check.
Leaving their MAC Tools HVAC leak detector rolling around in bed of the truck only to be found when I arrive at home....Priceless.
Needless to Say the Dealership General Manager and I have spoken....
I have talked via phone with a Metro Atlanta Dealer who states they are cool with turning on DRL's....I'll update with the name/location of the dealer if I can prove their confidence to be true.
