Searching... Idle Timer

I have been searching for awhile now and I am looking for the several page link that talks about the 6.7 and all the technical information about the new diesel. I thought I read in that information that there is or will be an option for an "idle timer" for shutdown cooling.

Can someone point me back into the direction of that link or a link (if any) that talks about an "idle timer" for the 6.7.

Thanks for your help.

only idle timer i know of shuts off the engine after ten minutes of idleing....it's an emissions thing and is only on the xl and xlt trucks...the assumption being that these models are mostly work trucks and "they" (epa) don't want engines idleing for long periods....this information from the ford source manual

The idle shut down is a option and not EPA mandated in a 6.7 like it was in over 14,000# GVWR 6.4's.

The Engine-Idle Shutdown Module is installed in the same location as the Reverse Aid Module and the Reverse Aid system is standard on Lariat or better trim packages.

I'm pretty sure that idle timer just shuts the truck off after a set time. If you remove the key it will shut down normally.

Are you referring to a cool down timer? hose items typically allow you to activate the shutdown timer for a period of time and then you remove the key and lock up.

On the timer I put in my GMC I would push a button "X" number of times for an "X" number of minutes I wanted the truck to run. I would then pull the key, exit and lock up.

If you stepped on the brake after key removal it would immediately shutdown (theft prevention).

The company I got mine from does not have them for the Fords, but I have a request in.

That is exactly what I am thinking about.

Wondering if anyone has made any progress on this. So far mine has never been shut off hot, but would be nice to be able to have a Timer manage this for me. Had a Mechanical one in one of my Older Pete's, and later an electric in my 96 Pete, but with these Computer engines there should be a Program Flash available.

From the 2013 63.7 manual..
ENGINE IDLE SHUTDOWN (IF EQUIPPED)
Your vehicle may be equipped with an engine idle shutdown system. This
system automatically shuts down your engine when it has been idling in
P (Park) or N (Neutral) for five minutes (parking brake set) or
15 minutes (parking brake not set). When the engine idle shutdown
process has started:
A chime sounds and the information display will show ENGINE
TURNS OFF IN 30 (seconds) and start counting down.
The 5 or 15 minute timer can be restarted by changing the position
of the accelerator pedal, brake pedal or the park brake within the
final 30 seconds.
When the timer reaches zero, the engine shuts down and this
message will appear in the information display ENGINE TURNED
OFF.
One minute after the engine has shut down, the electrical system
simulates key off, even though the ignition is still in the on position,
initiating normal accessory delay period.
The ignition must be moved to the off position to reset the system
before restarting the vehicle.
The engine idle shutdown idle timer does not start if:
The engine is operating in power take-off (PTO) mode.
The engine coolant temperature is below 60F (16C).
The exhaust emission control device (DPF) is regenerating.

I've been looking into this as well for my truck.
I actually wanted to go with the BD diesel brand aftermarket cool down timer, but unfortunately they don't make it for our year trucks yet. I asked about buying a universal style one and figuring out on my own what wires to splice it into and what not to get it to work, but they said with all the electronics in the vehicle it may still not work properly (or run properly when the key is removed.)
The only other option would be to install an aftermarket car alarm that has the built in "turbo timer" option that would do this. For me at least I rather not mess too much with the wiring since it could lead to problems down the road.
Maybe the 2013's have this option, that could be installed on the 2011's and 2012's??
