F-Series T-Style Radio Tech Support

2015-2020 F150, 2017-2020 Ford Superduty T-Style Radio Tech Support Questions

Below are some of the most common questions we receive about tech support between our T-Style radio and your Ford truck.

The system receives data for the clock from a few different sources which sometimes cause the clock to change times. To fix this issue:

  • Go to the Settings
  • Look for Android Settings
    • (More Settings at the top of the page, or in SYSTEM at the top right)
  • Scroll down to System
  • Open Date and Time
  • Turn OFF Automatic Date and Time
  • Turn OFF Automatic Time Zone
  • Set the Time Zone to your local time zone, then set the time properly

You’ll need to set that setting in your truck’s cluster. (The screen behind the steering wheel on the dash)

  1. Go to the far right for Settings
  2. Go down to “Advanced Settings”
  3. Select “Vehicle”
  4. Go down to “Remote Start”
  5. Open “Climate”
  6. Switch from “AUTO” to “Last Setting”

You likely have an Auto/Dual AC truck, but the radio is set to the Manual AC setting. Follow this Climate Control Setup Guide, or you can find them under Support > Installation manuals & Bulletins.

You’ll need to turn these on in Settings:

If you have the Classic settings Menu (APP Update 4.3 or older)

  • Go to Settings
  • Icon on the left with two gears
  • Enter 9300
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page. Turn on Seat Heating, Seat Blowing, and/or Wheel Heating
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page

If you have the NEW settings Menu (APP Update 4.4 or Newer)

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap System on the top right
  • Go to Setting Guide
  • Seat & Steering Wheel
  • Turn on any options you have, press OK, then Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page

Make sure your climate control setting is already set properly. You can find setups for this under Support > Installation manuals & Bulletins.

If the options still are not there:

  • Go to Settings
  • Open Advanced Settings (Icon with two Gears)
  • Enter 9300
  • Look for “Change Climate UI” and switch this setting. Usually, turn this OFF.
  • Then, turn off the truck and let the radio power off. After 10-15 seconds, restart the vehicle/radio, and your icons should be there.
  • If this did not work, go through the same process, but try the other Change Climate UI option, Off or On.

In the AppList, there is a section on the left labeled “System App” This has an icon for LAMP and SEAT, being Ambient lighting and massage seats.

If the Lamp/Lighting icon is not there:

If you have the Classic settings Menu (APP Update 4.3 or older)

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to the icon with two gears
  • Enter 9300
  • Here you can turn On/Off “Ford Lamp”
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page, or restart the vehicle/radio

If you have the NEW settings Menu (APP Update 4.4 or Newer)

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap System on the top right
  • Open “Factory Settings”
  • Enter 1660 and press OK
  • Go to “Install Set” on the left side of the page
  • Here you can turn On/Off “Ford Lamp”
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page

This means there is a setting turned on for an aftermarket right/side camera. You can turn this off in settings.

If you have the Classic settings Menu (APP Update 4.3 or older)

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Advanced Settings (icon with two gears)
  • Enter 9300 and press OK
  • Turn “Switch to Right Camera when turn signal is detected” OFF.
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page

If you have the NEW settings Menu (APP Update 4.4 or Newer)

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap System on the top right
  • Open “Factory Settings”
  • Enter 1660 and press OK
  • Go to “Install Set” on the left side of the page
  • Turn “Switch to Right Camera when turn signal is detected” OFF.
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page

Unfortunately due to the way the Android platform works the system can only have one active application active at a time. So when you are in a phone call the Bluetooth application must be in the front or the call will drop. Where a navigation app can run in the background, a phone call can not.

If you have the Classic settings Menu (APP Update 4.3 or older)

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Advanced Settings (icon with two gears)
  • Enter 9300 and press OK
  • Turn “360 Camera” to ON
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the page, or restart the vehicle/radio

If you have the NEW settings Menu (APP Update 4.4 or Newer)

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap System on the top right
  • Open “Setting Guide”
  • Tap on “Camera”
  • Turn on 360 Camera, then press OK
  • Save and Reboot at the bottom of the screen

If your vehicle has a B&O Audio system, you will need an additional B&O Adapter. If you install the radio as it comes out of the box, and this issue comes up, you likely need to purchase a B&O Adapter, or install an aftermarket amplifier for your speakers.
