Hello need some help if you can assist or point me in the right direction. I have a 2017 FORD Expedition. When I load FORSCan and I select 2017 MY it starts to load the modules correctly but the entire program crashes and shuts down when it gets near the end of detecting the Modules. When I select 2015 or 2016 it completes detecting all the modules and finishes and the program loads correctly. I have installed the Dealer OEM Trailer Brake Controller in the Dash and everything is working with the lights and it detects when I Connect and Disconnect the Trailer but it does not activate the Electronic Brakes on the Trailer and does not allow me to adjust the Gain setting. I am not seeing the settings in the IPC Module as expected to be able to Enable the Trailer Brake Controller and Gain Settings

FORScan crashes at this point for me too. I didn't think to try an older model.

I loaded Forscan version 2.3.15 and chose sync 2 and it loaded fine. Version 2.3.16 kept crashing. However my trailer brake controller is not showing up in the IPC module. If you find the answer for my issue please let me know.

I am having this issue on my 2017 expedition as well. Did you guys find a fix or get your stock break controller working?

Make sure you have the most recent forscan version. Double check your adapter software driver. Looks like there are two changes to be made in the IPC one to enable trailer brake module. The other to enable gain
