I thought I'd post a different FFH fact every so often, here's the first.
(This is something the Dealer Prep looks for when getting a car ready for sale)
During vehicle build, some vehicle modules are set in factory mode including the IPC and the BCM. While in the factory mode, the IPC displays FACTORY MODE CONTACT DEALER in the message center. If the vehicle is set in factory mode, the system does not automatically revert to another mode and must be manually set to either the transport or normal operation mode. When the vehicle build is complete, the vehicle is set to transport mode. While in transport mode, the IPC displays TRANSPORT MODE CONTACT DEALER in the message center. Transport mode reduces the drain on the battery during longer periods where the vehicle is not used. Various systems may be altered or are disabled when in the transport mode. The vehicle automatically reverts to normal operation mode after being driven 120 km (75 mi).
IPC = Instrument Panel Cluster
BCM = Body Control Module
