Adaptive Cruise control from 2019 on 2017

Recommended Posts

As we know on restyle (2019) Edge the adaptive cruise control has been upgraded. And and more specifically it now has start/stop feature.

I'm curious what is needed in order to upgrade old system to new one?  Is it possible to do this just by upgrading distance sensor?

I would be very interested for this, but I remember reading a reply from Dan on the Fusion or F150 forums where he stated something that there is an additional sensor on the windshield required, hence it is not an easy upgrade.

Yes, the new system incorporates the windshield camera as well as the radar.  The modules that are used for Adaptive Cruise include the PCM, BCM, SCCM, Gateway, ABS, RCM, IPMA, IPC and CCM.  Chances are you'd have to replace most of those because the software you need likely wouldn't be compatible with the modules you have.  It will likely end up being cheaper to swap out your 2017 for a 2019 vehicle than it will be to try to correctly update the ACC on your 2017.

You mean camera behind the windshield on the back side of the mirror? I have it also

You have a camera, but you don't have the IPMA module that interprets the image so that the ACC can use it.

ok, isn't IPMA is the module that enables the lane keeping assist that my Edge already has? Just to clarify I have all the features that are possible on Edge

It would be like trying to install Windows on a Commodore 64.

I am trying to figure out a camera in the upper windshield can see around the front of the car and see the ground?

Why would it need to?  It's looking ahead at the car in front of you.  It would never let you get close enough to something that it would lose sight behind the front of the car.  Besides the radar is still there, it can "see" everything in front and isn't blocked by the hood.  The cameras that are used in the 360 parking view is mounted in the front grill, not the windshield.
