Auto Highbeam setting defaults to Off with key cycle

Post by FIRESHO » Fri Apr 07, 2017 10:49 pm

I have a 2015 SHO w/PP I bought the car used with 29,000 miles. Currently at 35,500 miles.

From day 1 of my ownership I noted that in order to use the Auto Highbeam feature I had to enable it through the menu every time I stated the vehicle. It works well for that driving cycle, but after turning the car off and back on again the setting in the menu is defaulted back to disabled.

I have a video of this to share as needed.

Speaking to other SHO and Ford owners this is not how their vehicle functions. After visiting the dealership today they have no idea how to fix this problem.

Any one else experience this and get it fixed?

Thanks in advance

Sorry but your dealer is lazy....I will say I am assuming your build date falls within the specified dates. Found in 15 seconds of looking up known issues in the dealer site:

SSM 44835 - 2015 Taurus - Auto High Beam Setting Resets With Key Cycle - Built On Or After 6/2/2014 And Through 9/18/2014
Some 2015 Taurus vehicles built on or after 6/2/2014 and through 9/18/2014 may exhibit an Auto High Beam feature preference setting defaulting to off after a key cycle. To correct this condition, re-install the As-Built data to the Image Processing Module (IPMA) module. Using the IDS, select Module Programming, As-Built, then IPM-A. Refer to section 10 of the SLTS manual for appropriate labor times.
