Truck has a short list of things wrong thats all started happening in the last 2 weeks...

1. Radio screen has gone black. Audio still works. Hard reset does nothing.
2. Loud screech sound from speakers when turning truck off.
3. The tail-gate applique has started to come off of the tail-gate.
4. Theres a rotating grinding type thing going on at the driver front wheel while coming to a stop 50% of the time applying brakes.
5. The Ford chime works 50% of the time when door is open.
6. Hood flutters going over 80mph or if theres a strong head wind.
7. The dreaded clunking sound coming from the rear.
8. Drivers seat bottom is loose.

Anybody have anything to recommend they look at/do while its in there?

I don't have anything to add, but please let us know what they say about the black radio screen. My '23 had been doing that intermittently as well, I think it has to be the latest Apple update (hopefully you're iPhone as well so we can isolate this a little?)

Good luck,

Have them check the battery. At 3k miles my 2022 was checked and had low voltage (still started and ran fine). Had some random electrical issues (kind of like the ones you describe). Replaced the battery under warranty and have not had any issues since. I think some of these trucks sat for a long time and the batteries are no bueno.

Let me know what you find out on number 4. I've had the same issue for a long while. I have taken it to two different dealers and of course when they have it, they don't hear it or it doesn't do it. Pretty sure it is an IWE issue though. I need to get mine back it since it has gotten worse as of late. It doesn't happen all the time though which is why I avoid taking it in. Feels like I am wasting my time.

Man, I have a 23 that I picked up in September that I'm compiling a list of issues...

1) AC freezes up when humid and at freeway speeds
2) Half the time the tail gate will not lower (remote or button) or latch when doing "auto lift"
3) Hissing from the power on board battery area (or rear speakers) when seat coolers are turned on.
4) Loud popping over speakers when turning the truck off.

Maybe ask them about a M/T tire that looks cool and doesn’t make noise? :p
