Hey Ford Pay Attention!

I for one would like to see you add a chime, and a idiot light that tells us when our trucks are in regen [cleaning exhaust filter] This would help to keep us from shutting our trucks down in the middle of the regen process and wasting fuel.
Not too much to ask on a $60,000 truck is it? Come on, listen to us out here!

Better yet...It would only cost them a little bit of time in programming to add it to the multi-color display...

There is a message that flashes to tell you when it is starting the regen. Says "Cleaning Exhaust Filter".

Isn't that the truth! The old 1980 Nissan 280ZX my wife had 20 years ago had that on it!

Yes, but it's so easy to miss. I know I have, and others on here say they miss it as well.
What I'm saying is, there should just be a chime to call your attention to it so one doesn't miss it, then as result, shut the truck down during regen. I also mentioned an idiot light so that we can tell when regen is over. They could make it a scrub brush and a muffler looking thing. It's Simple stuff that makes a difference.

Sounds like a better opportunity for a tuning company.

I agree. Light for regen and operator command regen standard on diesels with % soot level shown. Washer fluid! I was stunned it didn't have a light. I ran out and was like…whoa…where's the light showing me it's out? I thought I had a burned out light…NOPE! No indicator for washer fluid. Heck, a $20,000 car has them. How about actual tire pressure? And, actual DEF fluid level. There are so many small things that are really programming related…very minor actual costs!
