2013+ Digital Speedometer update

Post by SevinSyn » Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:30 pm

Hello everyone!

I've been reading all over the place to no avail, so I figured I'd ask this question myself!

Does anyone know if the civi Taurus's are able to have the VCM update to P-011 shown here: https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas/no ... /P-011.pdf
To add the functionality of the digital speedometer in the information cluster or is this restricted to the Interceptor Sedan/Utility.

I've been fortunate enough to drive both, however going from being on-duty to riding in my Taurus knowing the analog gauge is 3-3.5mph off really bothers me, and using diagnostic mode for the speed is just too much to do every time.

So now that some time has passed has anyone gotten this done at the dealership??

I want this done but I do not think it will work on a retail Taurus.

The thing is though alot of the retail Taurus's have the exact same cluster as the interceptor series. I'd imagine it's the same. One of my friends from highschool is a Ford tech, I'll send him a text tonight

It may be possible to convert the same style civi cluster to that of a PI with forced firmware. They must be of the same design, (two analog gauges on the ends). This won't be possible with normal ford software though.

I already posted this question before on this forum and was told it could not be done. However, if you want to go to Ford and prove them wrong I am interested to see what they say.

So I spoke to the dealership today and they told me it's not impossible, however they won't do it. Anyone willing to try to copy and paste a few files? Lol

Its a little more difficult than a copy and paste of some files. I could probably do it but you would have to pull it from the car and send it to me so I could upgrade it on my bench.
