  1. Does not work on a 2018 Taurus. All it says is Accessory Power is Active. That’s it. Anything else I do just turns on the power. There is no test mode. Thanks for wasting my time.

  2. For the grumpy butt that complained you wasted his time, it works on my 2017 sel and my mom’s 2016 se and my friends 2019 sho so… Maybe it’s you that’s wasting your own time by not following instructions?
