NOTICE:
Some areas contain Bronco Easter Eggs that have been posted…..

Turn Around, if you don’t want them Found!!!

We all know some of the little secrets that the Bronco holds….
Most of us know where the different Easter Eggs are located throughout the Bronco, most of us know that when unlocking our Broncos and when you want to open the windows at the same time, to push the unlock button again but hold it this time for 3 to 5 seconds and it will roll all the windows down.

EDITED:
I believe you must have Mid Package or higher for the windows to roll down with key fob, not confirmed yet!!!

Another secret that probably not as many know like the windows rolling down, is when your Key Fob has a dead battery and you use your key that’s within the key fob to get inside the Bronco, “well how do you start it” simple, pull all the junk out of your center arm console and remove the rubber bottom, there you will notice an area where your Key Fob will lay inside the bottom of the console, just place your key there and your vehicle will start…..
Finally the one I discovered by accident…..
I have not seen this anywhere so far on Bronco Nation about this little discovery that I found purely by accident.
While wiping down the interior of my Bronco after a very dusty Drummond Island trip, I accidentally pushed the Volume Button on the Radio, long and behold the Radio turned on and this was without my key fob with me.
I have always during the summer went out to my Bronco for lunch to listen to the radio, I have always just pushed the start button once, turned off my lights, and left it on that way so I can listen for the half hour that it stays on.
We all know if you turn it off with the doors closed the radio will stay on (preset amount) 10 minutes and then goes out, and if your doors are open it will shut off instantly.
Now without hitting anything, other than unlocking your doors, jump in with or without the doors open and just hit the power button on the radios volume control, only the radio and the infotainment center turns on and I believe it stays on for approximately 20 minutes.
I am not sure if there’s a preset time that can be adjusted or not, I haven’t seen anything yet in the infotainment center, plus you can also turn off the infotainment screen at any time, so this will leave you with little power being consumed while your listening to the radio.
This especially works well when your significant other is being dropped off at a grocery store and you’re waiting to pick them up, you can listen to the radio for a longer set time, just by hitting the power button on the radio.
Maybe everyone knows about this, “but I didn’t, and I thought it was something worth sharing with everyone.”

Well now it’s your turn!
Has anybody else discovered anything that may, or may not be new to all of us, or even something that you haven’t seen before, but you think everyone has, so you don’t post it!!!
Because I guarantee there are some of us out there that don’t know about the couple of gems I’ve posted, and they’re just finding out about it now…..

Fascinatingly... I am going to have to recheck mine because I think it displays differently. I am pretty sure I do not have the black dashed line down the middle instead I have two white solid lines that project where the outside of the tires will travel. as I change my steering the white lines curve to reflect where my tires will travel. I do not think I have the blue "P" in the upper right... maybe... I do know I have a representation of the bronco that shows when things are in the range of the sensors... It shows which sensor is detecting something (the light area shown behind the bronco) each 25% will light up orange when something is detected and will turn red if as things get closer.

You may have a different view selected.
If you have the 360 view from overhead it has the white lines that show a couple inches past the side mirrors that line up with the lines of most parking spaces as well as the green lines that curve to show your vehicle path along with the dotted black trailer hitch centering line. I prefer that view. As I tell my wife, if you can't park straight with all that help you don't need to be driving,lol.

I actually don’t have overhead view, for I only have a Big Bend and I can only get Mid Package.
“But” you discovered the black dotted lines and that’s another thing I have never noticed until I zoomed in on the picture…..
I need to get my head out of……ahhh……the clouds. 🤣

I think it is the 360 view... It is what ever comes on when I put it in reverse. I am usually looking over my shoulder and using my mirrors out of habit.... But then the thing starts beeping and I stop to look at it wondering what the hell is going on.... OH>>> I am 5 foot away from something that I already knew I was 5 foot away from...

Well, more than likely I am the last person that owns a Bronco to discover this, and I don’t know why I never noticed this before…..
The Blind Spot Detection with Cross Traffic system was something I have never set before, and I’ve been driving my Bronco for almost a year now.
Just yesterday I was backing out of my parking spot at work, and I noticed that in the backup camera at the top left and right side there are two icons, and since I still drive like I don’t have a backup camera I have never noticed the Icons.
The top left Icon when you tap it Zooms in on your visual area to see things closer.
The Top right hand side, is your on/off for your Blind Spot Detection with Cross Traffic sensors……
I have always wondered why I have never heard it go off after almost a year now, and like I said, I’m probably the only person that didn’t recognize this before, but I thought that was awesome to discover this……


This is with it off…..


This is with it on……

Since I have added the trailer hitch and have used the trailer several times I found the turn off the beeping noise button but I didn’t know about the zoom I would just get closer to the screen when hitching up. LOL

Agree. If you’re open to a beer recommendation… Try Estrella Jalisco. Cheers!

My Bronco didn’t come with a bottle opener, so I’ll be still twisting my caps off!!!
Why they wouldn’t put them in a 2 door, I’ll never know… 🤔
Maybe Ford thought owners with a 4 door party more than the 2 door owners!!! 🤣🤣🤣

I get WAY more foot well heat with the auto climate control than when I choose it manually. Will be leaving it on auto from now on this winter.

When we were headed to Drummond Island the first time with my son, I asked him where do you want the heat/air set at , and he told me he always uses AUTO it keeps it very comfortable, and he was right, never even touched it once…..
I will have to give that a try and see how much of a difference it makes.
Thanks @Sven for the info!!!

I purchased a two door because I already had several bottle openers and did not need another. 😁

This is funny...
Do wonder what the reasoning was behind only the 4 door having the bottle opener ..

The Ford engineer who designed that panel must be a short person. I sit tall in the seat and cannot see the buttons, so I have to go by touch. A terrible design IMO because the buttons lack any type of surface texture to differentiate them from the surrounding plastic. They should have indentations or bumps.

I installed one of the little fuzzy dots that you put on a cabinet door to keep it from slamming against the cabinet. It's low profile and self sticky. 10-second mod.

Found this and thought it was cool. Maybe others have found it which I’m sure they have.
