blackout mod 2014 ford

Postby coloradopse » Tue Mar 03, 2015 3:27 pm

Have a quick question, have a few 2014 ford f150's that i will be outfitting for an agency here in the next few months, the agency is requesting hlf and tlf with a blackout mode to cut tail lights and reverse lights. what is required to do this blackout mode on the newer vehicles without the computer freaking out? does the computer just need to see continuity through the circuit via a small resistor or does it need an actual representation of the load?

You can kill the brake lights by putting a relay in line with the brake pedal switch. Pull it off and open it up to figure out the right pins, but two will activate brake lights and the other activates the transmission interlock. This can be another good option... put a hidden switch somewhere on the interlock, and you can let the vehicle run but prevent anyone from putting the vehicle into gear.

There's no monitoring on the reverse lights. The computer won't care.

You can actually go onto the www.motorcraftservice.com website and for less than $10 get short term access to the 2014 F-150 service manual which has all the vehicles wiring schematics.
