Two connectors are in question. If you have any info or schematics that would be great. Pics added.

1) Connector under front bumper : I know it's feeding the LED fog lights, but what about all the other wires/connections?? Maybe the cruise control??

2) Connector on top of passenger side battery : Some multi-point connector that's terminated with a waterproof connector. Maybe a connection used on gasser motors?

For the Fog lamp one what are the wires for on the other side?? 4, 5, 6, 15?? 15 is likely a ground, but what are the others?

The same connector is used for adaptive cruise control.
 
1 is adaptive cruise radar sensor as well as fog lights. (what broncohooves said above).

2 is a ring sensor that goes around the negative battery wire and monitors system current usage. It'll dial up/down the alternator as needed based on system load. Kind of surprised your truck doesn't have it.

Last I knew the 6.7L diesel motor trucks do not use this battery monitor. I think the newer 2023+ trucks do have this battery monitor.

I can see that, although not sure why the diesels wouldn't have it.

I have a 22 with the 7.3 and it's there.

I read that the biggest thing was the Auto Start function that is used when a gasser is at the stop light, the motor shuts down. As soon as you get off the brake the vehicle starts up again.

Now with the 2023+ 6.7L diesel, I think Ford just pushed it across the product line. :unsure: :unsure:
 
My '22 6.7L has the hall effect sensor as well.

7.3s don't have the start stop. I think only the 6.2 do/did but even there I'm not sure.

Now I'm curious why some do and some don't. Seems like both gasser and diesel can have them. My best guess would be something to do with the dual battery but I believe all diesels are dual battery. Something to do with pre-ordering the winch package?
 
I really don't know. It was just what I found, just doesn't make sense. For my truck (late build 2022) it might be a 2023 carry forward due to the way Ford preps the production lines. My CCV filter is the 2023 style as another example. For has done stuff like this in the past so it's anyone's guess really.
 
@FuelTankReInforcedSkidPlt : Another little bit of help if you could. In your posts above there is a connector C139. Can you post what that is used for and the associated wire colors??
 
I'm just here to derail now, how do your like the ODYSSEY Bats? Side note I don't think I have that fuse on my truck lol
I like them! If I ever traded trucks I would swap them over to the new one even. I doubt Ford uses Enersys brand AGMs on the 23 and up trucks, that's why I would move them over.
