Lane Keeping Equip

Picked up my 2017 F350 in February and already need to get the windshield replaced. My truck has most of the options available but the lane keeping is not one of them. There isn't a button on the dash for it, nothing on the window sticker about it, nothing anywhere. When the company showed up with the standard glass they told me it was the wrong one, they said I needed one for the lane keeping. After explaining to and showing them that I didn't they pointed out that my truck did have the lane keeping camera mounted under the rear view mirror. If you look through the windshield you can actually see it. My questions are is this something that I can activate by simply installing the needed button on the dash or would it also take dealer updating in the ECM? Is this something anyone else has seen, Equipment partially installed in a truck without the option?
Thanks,
Keith

That camera could also be automatic dimming headlights? It's possible that camera is used for both systems?? The auto rain sensor is back there too, but I don't believe it's a camera.

I just looked at my truck and I have two devices behind my mirror, one above the other. I have all the bells and whistles to include adaptive Cruise, auto dimming lights, rain sensing, and lane keep.

To answer your question further, from other research on this site, it seems very difficult to be able to add a system that wasn't installed at the factory. Most certainly there is programming involved.

Thank you, I asked the glass guy about the auto high beams, he pointed out that it was a sensor on the back of the actual rear view mirror. I'm still hoping I can modify/ update this option. Still wondering why its there to begin with, if it is only for the lane keeping. Hopefully someone will know, thanks again

Auto dimming highs beans do use a camera to detect tail lights in addition to street lights, so if you have the Auto Highbems, then you will need the correct windshield. The LKA uses it's own camera, so there would normally be 2 of them if you have both features. That sensor on the mirror is for the mirror autodim to compare forward light levels to rear light levels, so if the rear sensor has a higher light input it will dim the mirrors.

I ordered a cab-chassis and could not order some of the bells and whistles, I need a 203" for my flatbed is why I ordered.

I too wish to add Blind spot monitoring, adaptive criuse, and enhanced trailer tow. I know some sensors are in the taillight, which I don't have but through disection of a damaged one A proper camera or radar can be installed.

I understand it will be expensive, and I might have to buck up and buy some parts from the dealership, and that wiring might have to be scavenged from wrecking yards. I really don't expect to find the pigtail just sitting there blanked off, but will take a look.

First thing is to install a bed camera, I ordered the Factory camera system for the Cab Chassis but it did not come with the bed camera, it is on it's way and the Headache rack will allow visibility. Same for the aftermarket bumper and the adaptive cruise.

Are there any other tinker'ers out there? How about a way to hack the ECM? I would really like the exhaust brake to default ON. Unless someone can impart a reason why It should be off all the time.

Even though this is for F150, a lot is now shared between them and the Superduties, so give a look at these two threads, you might find some useful information. Beware, they are LONG.

The adapter to connect the laptop to the OBDII costs about $20, and the software is free.

Lane keeping is a camera/sensor under each side mirror.

The 2008 Rams were the same way and someone figured out how to install a resistor into the switch and it would then default on instead of off on startup. Get someone who knows wiring real well and you might get the exhaust brake fixed.

I wish my truck had blind spot also. Would be nice in such a big truck. However Adaptive cruise is a pain in the butt. I have it in my 12 Taurus SHO and wish i never got that option. It will slam on the brakes if someone changes lanes in front of you and they are to close but the get out of the way but it's to late and your brakes are applied. I would test drive a car that has that to see if you like it.
