2012 F350 SC 4x4. Tore up my tailgate. Looking at a 2011 with the pull out step. Can I swap the handle/key lock/camera from mine w/o step to the one with the step?
The issue there is a network failure likely caused by a wiring concern. This is why swapping things in late model vehicles is not wise. In the back of your trucks... depending on the options... there are things like Blind Spot Information System or BLIS, LED tail lamp assemblies, trailer tow tire pressure monitoring or TPMS and trailer remote camera systems that use network circuits to function. If the wiring harness is not built the same from one tailgate to another then then there is a distinct possibility that the networks circuits are now "open" which would explain the things you report are no longer working as they all share the same network. There is also a possibility that there is a connector in the rear of the truck that is not fully seated.Got to be careful with the tailgate swap. Mines in the shop now. Long story short. I bought a 2017 F-250 Super Duty Lariat, last Saturday. The tailgate was somewhat messed up. They agreed to swap the step gate with another one one the lot. Went this morning to have it swapped. The wiring harness wasn’t the exact match. They used it and sent me on my way. 30 miles down the road, everything started going haywire. The a/c wouldn’t work, the touchscreen was malfunctioning. The power windows wouldn’t work. Took it back, and when the service manager heard what they did, he knew the tailgate harness screwed it all up, so now I’m in a loaner truck while they fix my truck.
Just rethinking this.. Long as you are able to swap the camera assembly..there are no other electronic wiring things in the tailgate. So it should be a non issue blis and Lane departure are from the 2017 and newer. Rear senses are in bumper not tailgateCan't see why not. Just need to thread the camera wires down thru bottom. Camera is mounted on bottom of ford logo. Call a Ford parts dept and compare part number on step gate to non for logo with camera. It's likely the same. You will luv the step tailgate. Handiest thing for getting in

Yes.... provided the technician can diagnose it. Unfortunately since they decided to swap parts instead of repairing whatever was wrong in the first place you all now have an issue. I am actually surprised the truck made it out of the service bay let alone down the road before the "effect" of this swap was apparent.Ford doctor, is that a easy fix for the dealership?
