2017 Ford Explorer B14E7
I'll make this brief, a body shop replaced the right front lights and or headlamp module. code won't clear out but all of the headlights work.
My main question is how would I search for a discussion on the code? I read the site quite often but have never searched for a problem on it. thanks
B14E7 FORD: Code Meaning, Causes, Symptoms, & Tech Notes (engine-codes.com) See if this link helps. It would help to know the suffix of this code. Basically there is a CAN bus issue
yes, i realize that now. my scanner doesnt report the suffix. I found out now that the Head lamp and fog lamp module were replaced. Are they programable, I am on hold with Drew Tech know waiting to talk to them about programming.
Drew Tech can't do it, I'm sending it to the Dealer. Thanks for everyones help.
According to shopkey, this does require configuration. If the suffix is 55. DTC B14E7:55 “Not Configured”
Scott, the 2017 model explorers usually do not require to be programmed. The new model (2020 models) now require programming.
Scott, I’d start by calling the dealer and getting the correct part number for the headlight and Headlight module. We’ve had similar issues. Most of the time, it’s the ballast, but often the installed headlight is incorrect.
If the LED Driver was replaced, it needs to be initialized. there should be a scan tool function for LED Lamp Driver Module Initialization. You can swap modules left to right, reinitialize and rescan and see if the fault moves with the module. connect the diagnostic scan tool and execute the “ LED Lamp Driver Module Initialization” routine ~FoMoCo
Chris is absolutely right! Do these all the time for the collision centers. Time to invest in an OE tool to get the suffixes in order to diagnose the vehicles properly. The Ford VCM3 is rather cheap and so is the subscription and you don't need drew technology to do it. Just read service information. It is all in black and white.
