Silent Mode Menu Control 2020 F250

Post by RLGriff »

Hi All,

Is there an option to have silent mode be a menu option on a 2020 F250? It appears to be an option on the 2019+ ranger, but I can't find anything for the f250/f350.

I do have the option for silent mode and dark car and they work, but it's an all or nothing. I'd like to be able to switch it from the menu controls and not have to use Forscan to switch back and forth. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Can you post your IPC as-built line 720-32-01 and BCM line 726-58-02?

Are you running Sync 3.4? If so & your APIM has a newer firmware, it possible to enable Silent Mode control through the APIM by activating center stack settings and silent mode control. This option will be added in Settings > Vehicle Settings.

Great! I added a code above to try for IPC control as well.

I have the extended license and going into the plain english APIM, I enabled center stack controls and silent mode control. That then gave the option you have in your screenshot. Click it on and all lights stay off, perimeter and interior (except for sync screen which is fine). Click it back off and the christmas tree of lights is reactivated.

This way works great for me to leave the lights on to get kiddos in and out of the truck daily, but when I'm hunting or camping, I can turn off the lights without using forscan.

Thank you again for the help. I very much appreciate it!

What version of APIM firmware are people running to get the centerstack settings? I have a 2018, upgraded to sync 3.4, but I cannot enable the silent mode setting in my apim because mine does not go high enough. And, it appears like my IPC does not support showing this option.
