HI, Thanks for your thoughts on the fog light. There are undoubtedly many viewpoints but my intention was not to start a discussion of that again. :)

Sorry

 

Wasn't intending to take us off on a tangent but hopefully someone might get to see the thread who can help with your deactivating the three flash feature.

 

Apology not necessary I am just a user here like everyone else. Thank you though for the idea of a wider audience I hadn't considered that aspect as a possibility.

 

I think that the more "active" a thread is the more chance someone will see it in the "news feed" column and wonder "what's going on there"

Your question led to me doing some digging around, because i have the time with lockdowns etc, i found threads from other manufacturers forums where it is possible to program the number of flashes and potentially turn it off.

 

So hopefully someone will say it is possible.

 

In the meantime this one below about the Ford escape got really out of hand and got locked by their admin.

 

It doesn't answer your question but it is entertaining.

Guess we may all have issues that others see as a non issue.

 

With me its Computers and phones installing junk that I don't want.. Why does my new phone

have Facebook and Netflix on the home screen and why is the app locked so you cannot

uninstall them?

 

No issues with them pre-installing bloatware if it gets them a few pennies, but not being able

to uninstall it is totally wrong.

 

Or Vodafone tacking on a free trial of secure net despite me telling them many times over do

not put that onto my account. Logged in 1 hour after the call and there it is 3 month free trial

and £1 /month after that.

Thanks for the effort, I suspect from the thread you found that ford have this fixed in stone, no idea why. I have the ability even to set my headlights to left or right hand drive without getting out of the car (what wonderful progress from stick on lense covers!) so I am sure it would not be technically hard to turn off the 3 flashes, just badly considered.

HI wombatch.

 

I'm the other end of thespectrum. I have just collect a new stline. Yesterday I took out the laptop and used forscan to do a few adjustments. One of them was to increase the 3 indicator flashes to 4. If youare familiar with forscan and know how to use it, here are the codes. Note that the minimum is 1 flash. Hope this helps. The capital X is replaced by the

the numbers in the list depending on how many flashes you want.

 

Automatic Turn Signal Flash Count       724-01-01 (2014+ MY) xxxx xXxx xx    

 

(SCCM) 0 (One Flash)    

 

  4 (Two Flashes)    

 

  6 (Three Flashes - Default)    

 

  8 (Four Flashes)    

 

  A (Five Flashes)    

 

  C (Six Flashes)    

 

 

E (Seven Flashes)

Thanks for this, I'll order the cable. I did also see some other stuff that talks about this, not specifically on a Mondeo but on several other ford models it seems the behaviour can be set by forscan along with the cancelling behaviour of the indicator (apparently you can set it to specfically require cancelling).

In case anyone is interested there is this big spreadsheet (a phrase with granny and eggs springs to mind but maybe it is of use) https://docs.google....95730/htmlview#
