Hello all,

I wanted to start a thread here for people to want to get their VINs run through PTS or FDRS. Anyone that has PTS or FDRS access, please feel free to jump in the thread and provide info if a request is made.

PTS shows OTA history and/or if you have any active OTA triggers waiting to install on your vehicle. You can also pull window stickers, see what DTC's the truck is reporting to the cloud (this only works if you have your Fordpass set up), pull up wiring diagrams, check for open recalls, warranty history, and more.

FDRS checks will show all modules on the vehicle that have a pending update on Ford's server. This can also be done with PTS, but it is not as accurate as FDRS. Any questions about the FDRS process, please refer to this thread; let's keep this one specific to VIN checks and not FDRS procedural questions:

https://www.f150lightningforum.com/forum/threads/lightning-software-updates-using-fdrs.11029/

If you prefer to not post your VIN publicly on the forum, feel free to message me privately. In your request, please specify what you need checked. OTA history? Modules pending updates? Why is an OTA failing? etc

Note: If you want an FDRS specific check, please note that I only have FDRS access in the evenings when I am home with my laptop. Unless someone else with FDRS access can chime in, any specific FDRS checks would have to wait until I am home for me to do.

Got your message. Your truck has gotten one OTA (4.2.1.1) and that was three days ago. List of modules with pending updates according to PTS is below. Your VIN has been removed from the screenshot.

Just like above, your truck has only gotten one update (4.2.1.1) and that was 3-4 weeks ago. Modules still pending updates are below:

List from PTS is below. As I mentioned in the OP, I have found that the list in PTS and FDRS differs. PTS does not do a good job of showing any APIM, GWM, or TCU updates pending that FDRS will show.

I'd like to know about updates, I got one but nothing thereafter. I'm going in for the low voltage battery update tomorrow.

APIM OTA 23-PU1103-NAT-VCE was sent to you about 4 hours ago. It is sitting in your queue waiting for you to start the truck to download the files and attempt to install the update. If you have access to it, start it and let it run for 5-10 minutes. Remote start will not work.

No OTA's recorded yet, but the truck was built less than 4 months ago, so that is not surprising. Modules with pending updates are below.

OTA 4.2.1.2 was sent to you about 2.5 hours ago. It is sitting in your queue waiting for you to start your truck for it to download and attempt the install. If you're still on the 4.x.x string of updates, it will be a while before you see the IPC update you want.
