Looks like either screen failure or worst case the underlying electronics/chips that 'drive' the screen have failed.Can anyone tell me how to fix my screen? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Its a 2013 Ford Escape.
What update did you install? MFT? I updated but I still don't have Instant MPG. ThxThere are about 3 different threads going in regards to the instrument cluster. As of now, I have confirmed that ALL 3 trim levels of Job 2 (Dec 2013 and later) Escapes have the digital speedometer. As of now, there is NO update to get the digital speedo after the fact for Job 1 (earlier than Dec 2013) Escapes.
I just had the latest update installed, and it did give me the instant MPG, but no other enhancements. My dealer is currently looking into it, as a few other dealers are.
Also, maybe a mod can consolidate these threads?
What do you do following the restart? Do you then let go of both buttons? I have tried this "reset" a couple of different ways and my MPH still has not returned.You can display a digital speedometer by accessing the diagnostic mode on the information screen:
On the steering wheel controls on the left, hold OK Button and the Right Arrow button at the same time for about 5 secs.
*Start the vehicle while continuing to hold steering control buttons.
*You are now in test mode.
*Use the up/down arrows on the right side of the steering wheel to scroll though the options.
*To return to normal operation, shut down and restart car.
Do you have a link to the software used in that screenshot? I don't want to download the wrong thing. If you have a link to what device to buy to connect, that would be helpful too!the new IPC firmware version for a Chinese model escape is DV4T-10849-RGA
I am not sure whether this apply to a US model.
I read from our forum,there are some UI changes after upgrade to this new IPC firmware,like the a progress bar when a door is not closed.
for how to enable speedo via VCM，please look the picture from below link
I know you not able to read the chinese words，but just remmber the highlight menu position in the list
it should be：moudle program-> programable parameter -> vehicle setting -> Special Function, -- Digital Speedo Configuration
then just follow the wizard to enable the feature.
Do remmber when the wizard ask do you have a GPS ,choose NO,other you lose the direction display in font of your mileage.
Do you know where to find it in forscan? Or what UCDS is? Is that software? I have the VCM2 from ebay with the IDS software but I couldn't see any option when I followed No Digital Speedometer that comments guide on that chinese websiteyou have to activate it via the forscan or ucds
Direct Config (IPC LEVEL3) Parameter DE02, Digital Speedo Feature : Enable
So I was playing around in ForScan last night and there is actually a way to enable the Quad screen through the IPC Config! (So you don't have to visit the Stealer!)Bit of a thread dig here but is the Cluster software a dealer only thing or can it be done via Forscan?
I have (what I assume to be) a Job1 2013 Escape (I’ll check my build date in the morning)
not hopeful for the digital speedo based on this but I’d love to just get the quad display!
edit: yup Job1 08/12
