You must not have an Escape? In case you did not know 2020 escapes do not have a steering lock.

If those vehicles have ACC then they should have lane centering?

Just finished installing the switch and followed your instructions. Everything works perfectly. Had a little issue with air bag light coming on but found that i had not pressed the orange clips completely in, once I did that all issues cleared.

Thank you 360alaska for taking the time to figure all this out and providing easy to follow instructions.

No problem, by the way, I’m working with a programmer to port openpilot to the 2020+ escapes using the lane center function. It’s not released yet, but we’ve got a test build that will steer the car.

Clarifications based on feedback:
  • To be very clear, your forscan adapter must support MSCAN.
  • You must clear your DTCs after programming all modules.
  • Added separate values for Hybrid Vehicles.

Lane centering assist is truly amazing technology, when I got my titanium escape I thought it was the coolest feature. It makes highway driving truly effortless when combined with ACC. In order to complete this mod you must already have ACC with stop/go. For a 2020 escape, the IPMA(camera) is exactly the same whether you’ve got a SE or a titanium. (LJ6T-19H406-CD) It's just a matter of turning it on, the only part that is needed it the lane center buttons and even with that, you may be able to activate lane center without the lane center buttons. Feel free to test it by enabling it in forscan without changing the SCCM settings.

Here is a basic idea of how to access the steering wheel buttons by removing the airbag:


1. It is recommend to disconnect the 12v battery and wait 20 minutes ensure the supply to the airbags is drained.
2. Remove the upper steering column shroud by prying with a trim tool between the upper and lower column shroud.
3. With the steering wheel in the 90 degree position insert a flat blade screwdriver and pry up to release one side of the airbag. Rotate the wheel to the left to 270 degrees and do the same for the other side.

4. Disconnect the horn connector
5. Disconnect the two airbag connectors by prying up on the orange clips and then remove the connectors and set the airbag aside.

6. Disconnect the electrical connectors to the left and right button packs and gently pry the trim surround out with a trim tool.
7. Swap the button pack by removing and replacing two torx screws.

Look at the how to I made for that, you have to add the radar module and configure it for acc/stop and go. All hybrids should be stop and go capable due to having the electric brake module.

My 2022 SEL 2.0 came with the electric brake module but no ACC. Looking to install the sensor to be able to get Intelligent cruise control with stop and go, but I'm a little confuse as to running the wires and where to make the splice to the sensor. Any help would be much appreciated. It can be through private message to avoid hijacking this thread, or I could start a new one if that is the consensus.

Check my article on how to add acc. If it really has the Electric brakes you can add the full setup.
