Got word from the Ford Dealership that they did not know about the FENG. Had to explain this exists in the Explorer ST. Because they do not know too much about it, they said they could not figure out how to turn it off.

Wait so does this work on our ST?
Only way I know of is through ForScan. Have not found a Dealership with the 'know-how' to disable it themselves.

If anyone knows the process, please send that over. I'd like to get that over to my Dealership.

I went to the dealer and walked them thru it. but the software for the 2020 vehicles is different. so for now there is no option to shut off the noise.

I purchased my ELM 327 thinking it was going to be a piece of cake to install the FORScan program. Well I’m having a heck of a time accessing the activation code. Someday when I figure it out I will have great ST without that stupid fake engine sound!

Depends, some dealers will do it for you (other members have indicated), some will just don't want to be bothered, others have techs that do not have the knowledge etc... Usually dealers service centres should have access to all the vehicle codes, programs, software etc through their Ford computer software system.. Hope that helps

This is correct. My dealer isn't even acknowledging their vehicles make a fake exhaust noise. :rolleyes:

Well, I finally got the Forscan figured out went in and changed the code in ASM. and I got to say I’m somewhat disappointed. It is quieter but still pretty noisy. But I still do like the car. As we all know nothing’s perfect. By the way every Ford dealer has what’s called an IDS program which they are able to go in and change codes same as Forscan. They just don’t want to be bothered!
