2011 F150 FX4 5.0 Supercrew 6.5 box. Minor Issues

Traded my 06 F150 5.4 for the 2011 FX4 5.0.
A few issues now;
backup sensor error....check backup sensor on display.
Box sidesteps open on there own.
Rear license plate bulb electrical socket melted with burnt bulb.
And is there a sync update available via USB download.

For the update you can go to www.syncmyride.ca and put your vehicle info in and see. Do the back up sensors work? It's either a sensor or the wiring for them.

I usually get the dealer to do any SYNC updates, blew up a couple of modules on the wife's Edge, but easy enough to fix with a new module.

Haven't got much use for the box side steps, seems odd they'd open on their own, not sure what sort of latching mechanism they use, but that would be a good place to start.

Replace the licence plate socket and make sure you've got the right bulb installed the right way.

I'm no expert, but sounds like you've got too much heat going on, maybe too much current flow ?

Check to see if your backup sensors are clear..with all the snow we've had here in Ontario, I've had mine get blocked and scream the minute I put it into reverse.

Hope those suggestions help.
