Front Display Interface Module (FDIM) Screen Flicker – 2016-2019 Ford Escape, 2016-2018 Focus/C-Max

SSM 47748

2016-2019 Escape, 2016-2018 Focus/C-Max – Front Display Interface Module (FDIM) Screen Flicker

Some 2016-2019 Escape and 2016-2018 Focus/C-Max vehicles may exhibit a customer perceived concern of a FDIM screen flicker during transitions between day/night mode and/or during auto headlamp on/off.

 

The FDIM utilizes a ramp up and ramp down strategy of controlling the back lighting when the display setting is in auto dimming mode.

This is a normal condition that does not affect the function or durability of the FDIM.

Auto dimming mode can be turned off to minimize the rampup and ramp down lighting strategy. To turn off the auto dimming mode feature in the FDIM display: select> FDIM settings> Display settings> Auto Dim selection.

Do not confuse the auto dimming mode selection with the selection for auto day/night operation.

Turning off auto dimming mode only effects the back lighting strategy and does not affect any other function or FDIM reliability.
