Howdy .. and WTF? :lol:

This is simple, fundamental Base 16 arithmetic - ADD '8' to whatever value is in that position. Remember - it is HEX:

Trailer Brake Control Module enabled
IPC 720-07-01 xxxx x*xx xxxx if your as-built is 0, use 8. If your as-built is 6, use E

Trailer Brake Controller Gain Setting enabled
IPC 720-04-01 xx4x xxxx xxxx

Perhaps you should READ the Tutorial - yer understanding appears somewhat lacking. http://forscan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4393

Additionally - you should NEVER be saying " ... I believe ..?". You should KNOW. Refer to yer backups if in doubt to confirm. Screenshots before changes work well too.

If yer unsure about what you are doing - don't use this tool, as the consequences of fekking something up are potentially dire.

BTW - the trailer brake config is the same from 2015-up; yer 2017 ain't special :lol:

Salut

Thank You Vladsky for posting this info. I used it to activate a trailer brake control module on my 2017 Expedition. I was a little nervous changing the as built codes, but they worked perfectly!!
