Hi all. Informing with another post that a major update will be done to the spreadsheet by the end of today. I'm adding in quite a few things I've deciphered so stay tuned for the next update!

Another update coming within the next couple of days.


Firstly, apologies if anyone had troubles accessing the link. I was informed by someone on Instagram that the link was dead for some reason and I made a new one so it should be fully functional. I have no idea if it was dead for a while for some so, again, apologies.
Also, I have discovered the right codes for the Climate Controls in the right side of the cluster, as well as enabling/disabling the menus in the right side such as the Entertainment, Navigation, and Phone menus.


A few more things will be added so stay tuned!

I'm glad the Climate fix for the right hand IPC is out there now. I was disappointed they removed it in the newer model years. I flipped it on in my Explorer and I do use that panel.

The feature I miss most, however--in my 2013 Bull, text messages would also appear in the right hand IPC. You could see the texter's name -- and have the car read it out with a push of the right OK button. My 2014 Bull had that feature removed and nobody ever found out why. (The feature was also a bit unreliable though, admittedly...)

I'll see if I can find that text feature as well. I'm hopeful that someone can test the codes I have for the climate controls and what not so we can confirm whether or not 2014 has a newer cluster or if it's just a programming thing that removed the climate control.
I can't live without climate control in the cluster itself. It's extremely useful and it's very odd it was removed.


In the meantime, I'm also trying to figure out how to disable the interior lights without having dark car enabled. Dark car disables puddle lights which kinda sucks and I like those on.
Park assist is also a feature I'm trying to find. I noticed after swapping SYNC3 in both the Taurus and Mustang, the upper right car icon in the backup camera screen went away showing how close you are to an object. I've concluded SYNC3 definitely had something to do with it. I already have this feature in the spreadsheet in PAM, however it's hit and miss for a lot of people for some reason so I'm investigating further as to what fully controls the PAM display.

Can confirm that Climate is in the 2014+ clusters.

Oh gotcha. I think I read your comment wrong. Anyway, the right side menus in the cluster are in the spreadsheet now. I also managed to find the rear park aid function so if anyone swaps to SYNC3 and wants the enhanced park aid icon, it's now able to be added back.
A few goodies were also added into the BCM tab. At this time, I'm trying to find that text message function in the cluster that you mentioned.

No dice on my '14 limited.

I went to add climate and found my hex value was already "F". I tried changing it to a few of the other options and even though i saw the menu change, CLIMATE was never an option at all. I set it back to F like it was...no climate.


I also tried to change the number of FM presets from 6 to 10 and it didn't work either.

Hmm, interesting. Let's try this. PM me your VIN. I wanna see what's potentially different with your car and see if I can make an as-built file to send to you that'll hopefully enable climate. It's possible it's more than one digit and I could have overlooked it.
