Check THIS out!! I had a feeling my ride was too stiff, compared to my Gen 2 and what everyone says about Gen 3 being butter. I dug up this Gen 2 guide and tried it. Minor extra step to put the live shocks in engineering mode but FORScan explains it during the procedure.

Huge difference in ride quality over rough pavement and a washboard dirt road. Amazing this was off by so much. (Pic is my before and after).
I may have missed it.. what mods did you do to your suspension then? that's quite a bit off..

Based on the thread he started, I don't believe that he had any mods. That was just the settling of the springs. I am sure this is calibrated on the line with zero settling done. I would think the dealership would run this calibration again after shipping and some settling but I would also be beneficial after some miles.

above was the part of the quote was trying to relay to you...

He posted a link to how to here I believe.. I have not done it yet.. only had mine for 3 weeks now. thinking of checking, but the ride is ok to me so far. came from a non LValve 18... sooo.. still getting used to not only the live shocks but the over ride with the 37s
Please post the steps and I will check mine.

As beachz said I’ve been whining about a surprisingly stiff ride compared to my 2018. No mods and 1600mi on the truck now. Found the link above and decided to try it. The ‘before’ readings were with no mods. Truck did sit in Dearborn for quite a while, so it doesn’t have the miles but it’s had a while to settle if that’s a thing.

Here’s the procedure link again for the person that asked. https://www.fordraptorforum.com/threads/how-to-2019-live-valve-recalibration-forscan.82737/

Ditto.. don't remember hearing that.. now I'm gonna try to listen for it, lol
Turn the ac off and the radio down its not loud and as long as the ac is on and the seats aren't folded up it's not really noticeable. I just recently started paying attention and was wondering if there was anyone that had a code for it.

So.. to add to the confusion.. yesterday eve, got in, and voila.. it works. used it the whole 15min drive home.
This morning.. again.. it's like it's just not 'in the mood' lol.. no sense of it.
So I made a post about this a while back breaking down the technical details and why CarPlay craps out a lot (usually at start of truck) and in certain areas. But to sum it up, it’s partly due to the protocol CarPlay uses to connected wirelessly.

When your phone connects to your car via wireless CarPlay it is not actually connecting via Bluetooth but by a 5Ghz band (this is what most wifi routers use today). Due to the congested nature of 5Ghz and it’s relatively low strength in terms of range compared to 2.4Ghz, I believe the signal that the raptor send out to your iPhone to connect gets interrupted by other signals. I’ve noticed that if I start my raptor near an airport and try to have it connect to my iPhone via CarPlay, it will simply fail to do it until I get far enough away (usually requires a cold restart of the vehicle, everything off and on again).

I’ve noticed the same issue near other areas of heavy 5Ghz (certain antennas and apartment complexes). Overall the issue is so sporadic that I can’t pinpoint the reason without proper debugging tools that only ford has access to.

So to put it plain and simple, your forscan mod likely did not cause the issue to start, I’ve had it happen from day one without any forscan. It’s weird too because if you try to plug in via usb for CarPlay, that often won’t fix it either. I’ve also noticed on the screen it says CarPlay is disabled and sometimes it can’t re-enable is unless I cold restart otherwise I get an infinite loading screen to enable it.

Hopefully ford finds a solution to this soon because it’s super annoying, at the minimum they could distinguish connecting via cable va wireless for CarPlay since it seems the vehicle tries to auto detect but use wireless first if it thinks it can (even if wireless is not working like mentioned above).
