Ford device to boost connectivity in its models without modems

Recommended Posts

 

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co said on Friday it would sell a plug-in device to enable features like remote start, security alerts, a Wifi hotspot and vehicle location assistance on 2010-2016 model year Ford and Lincoln cars.

Is there any update to this plug-in device?  Can't find any info on the internet. Would be nice to have!

The cellular kit they sell only works for some 2014-2017 models. The part number is DL3Z-19A390-B. 2018 has a different kit that may not be released yet.

 

When they said 2010-2016, they mean only certain models, not all Ford/Lincoln models. There is probably only a single 2010 Lincoln model it would work on if I had to guess.

 

No way to start the car via the OBDII port alone on the older models because it requires an ignition harness to physically switch power on to the various modules including the PCM.
