Is there any other way to trigger the zone lighting? Doing the world's slowest tap dance on the Sync screen is a terrible user experience. I don't know how the programmers and engineers that made that thing aren't embarrassed to even come to work in the morning. I need to be able to just push a button and have the dang lights all come on. I hate that they turn off once exceeding 5mph as well. Not sure there's anything I can do about that either.

They are accessible via the FordPass App. Not saying it’s any better software, but it is another place.

Oh I forgot to even mention that. Access through the FordPass app is even worse than the touchscreen!
If you are an iOS (apple) user it can be done from the Ford Pass Shortcuts which then provides a world of options to you.

There is a Discord channel that the developer has for all the shortcuts he's created that tap into Fordpass functionality.

Figures. All Android here. That would be cool. I don't like that turning on a lightbulb would have to go through the internet, but honestly would be better than the horrific Sync touchscreen.

Thanks for the tip! I installed all the shortcuts.

I downloaded the Discord App but could not find any information on Ford Pass. Where do I find that on the app?

Have you tried using the buttons by the lighting controls? These don't cover all the zones, but they work really well for what I need.

The lower button turns on the running board lights and the bed lights, and the upper 2 buttons control the spot lights on the side view mirrors.

Are the controls available in FordPass 5.0 on iOS? I don’t see them and do like to use them at night

You should be able to click on the link below and you can join the Developers Discord "server". If you are not familiar with Discord... it is essentially a hybrid of a chat room and a message board. Think of each "server" as a different message board/community.

This link is for the Developers server which is called "Henrylink"

Attached is a screenshot explaining all the shortcuts he has Fordpass integration for. Some obviously are EV specific and some are ICE specific.
