2017 – 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor Updates

2018_FORDRAPTOR_JIMDAVIS_02

Firmware updates are now available for the AP3-FOR-005 part number Accessport for the 2017 – 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor.  These updates include a newly added Tire Size Adjustment feature, reworked Auto Start/Stop functionality, and revised Stage 2 Off The Shelf (OTS) Maps.


Tire Size Adjustment

You asked for it, we made it!  You can now adjust the tire size directly on the Accessport.  This allows the correct read out for speedometer calculations.  Note that if you have a different way of accomplishing this prior to this update, it should be re-adjusted with the Accessport (to avoid DTCs).  This can be done through the “Tune” > “Adjustments” > “Set Tire Size” > and then using the up and down arrows to select the appropriate diameter tire size for your application and pressing the center button.

Auto Start/Stop Updates

The Auto Start/Stop feature had an issue on certain vehicles making the functionality inoperable.  This was generally limited to 17 model year trucks.  Updates are now included in ALL v102 OTS maps which corrects the issue on the affected vehicles.


V102 OTS Map Updates

Aside from the bug fix and new feature mentioned above, the Stage 2 OTS v102 maps include calibration changes.  The previous version of the Stage 2 OTS map revision caused some vehicles to exhibit inconsistent boost characteristics in situations at high elevation (most commonly in extreme cold with <13psi barometric pressure).  The appropriate tuning changes are now included to prevent these issues from occurring.


 Updating Firmware

All of the above updates can be had at no additional cost through a simple firmware update.  Once your Accessport Firmware is updated you can use the “Restore OTS Map” feature found in the “Tune” section.  This will present the v102 maps.  You can then go to “Tune” > “Change Map” > and select the appropriate v102 map for your application and you’ll be up to date!

If you have any questions on these updates or how to obtain them, our customer service team is happy to help!  Give us a call at 866-922-3059 or email support@cobbtuning.com and we can walk you through the process.

        Hi Lars,

        I’m sorry for the confusion. The same Accessport model will eventually work for the 19 Raptor but it should not have been communicated that it currently will. As of now, it’s looking like late May. We do have an email list you can subscribe to so you can be sure to never miss an announcement! https://www.cobbtuning.com/stay-informed/

    Hi Thomas,

    We’re still working hard to meet the May deadline but it may not be until the first week of June. The initial release will be limited to include the Stage 1 map but the Stage 2 map will be released soon after. You can subscribe to all to our newsletter and will be notified: https://www.cobbtuning.com/stay-informed/
