Hmmm, never heard that before. What states? My 03 Savana uses parking lights as DRL's.

Darn! Someone beat me to it!

I was hoarding this for myself over the past couple of days. I saw some talk about it on some ST forums as well. I was reading about FoCCCus, ELMConfig, and there's also something called UCDSys, but it's Russian and you have to buy their adapter and pay for "credits" - but it even allows you to update the BCM/PCM! WOAH! When did they add flashing support on the FoCCCus for MK3!?! No one tells me anything! When it's available, I'd like the IPC update without having to pay my dealer...

Links to good reads:

The problem with USB, it requires a driver and a special bus. When you write data to a car, it's usually written on nonvolatile memory such as nvRAM and CMOS. You can't write to these memory using a fast bus such a USB. USB run at higher frequency and it's too fast. There's other reason but they are fairly too technical for me to explain it.

Yeah that's one thing the guy over at the ST forum is working on. Trying to see if he can get that IPC from the Escape with current MPH display to flash... it will be interesting to follow the progress on all this.

That'd be cool. Or maybe eventually seeing things like tire pressure, oil life, etc.

I also want to try to modify line 184 and see if global open / close (sunroof optional) will work on our cars!

I was wondering when we'd get VAGCOM like functionality.

EDIT:
Looks like it's time to do some research... :P

I'm not necessarily talking about everything a tuner or even the IDS tool can do, but why not allow gauge cluster backlights to change color, which head unit function always starts up when you turn on the car (USB vs FM radio, for instance), allow parking lights to come on automatically based on ambient light but before the headlights turn on, etc. Even without all that, it would be SO much easier to do things like turning off the seat belt chime, resetting oil monitors, etc. that often require complicated routines involving the pedals and turning the ignition several times.

There is a LOT of computer controlled stuff in cars these days, why not let the user edit it all, via an easy to use GUI?
I can just imagine the meeting Ford, or any car maker for that matter, when they discuss the idea of allowing customers to modify settings like this. The meeting wouldn't last two seconds before the lawyers stand up and say "no f'n way". There is zero chance that car makers, any of them, would allow a customer to use a third party tool to modify anything as it would expose them to huge legal vulnerabilities...

It's illegal in Arkansas. There may be an exception if it was factory installed, but it's been the law for years.

I'm pretty excited about this. Does this mean I could add foglights/new switch assembly to my '14 SE and enable them with this?
