You will need an OBDLink connector that you can get off of Amazon, but read through the above before purchasing anything.

Wow, those are all excellent 'upgrades'!! Adding those to the list of things to do.

Have you actually done these using forscan? Or are you just stating you would like to know if/how they can be done?

So far I have added the seat buttons to display, broke the honk honk, turned steering wheel heater to hot.. Thinking about turning all 12V outlets to always on but sort of happy with my fuse box mod way so I have two on and two on timer still.

Still looking to find a way to auto fold mirrors. All doors unlock with engine off in park, open close Windows via fob, radio play without all power on, adjusting steering wheel effort at highway speed, lower the speed where auto high beams work, fog lights on during day with auto lights set and DRL on. LED parking lights on all the time. And I'm sure much more to come.. What if any of this we can figure out I don't know..

In the Manual (page#64) it is under autolock & autounlock - "When your doors auto lock while driving, stopping the vehicle then switching the ignition off or to accessory and opening the driver door unlocks all your doors."

I have done the same as Livoniabob. I also have done the engine noise enhancement from on to off but liked it better on so changed back to on.
I didn't do the navigation because I have it factory but Texasfording has a PDF on it and a thread.

I too would like to do the auto fold mirrors and try the other stuff mentioned. I would also like to turn off the door ajar warning on the wife's Explorer like you can with seat belt warning. Long time problem with those switches.
