I recently bought a new '12 GT 5.0 and love the car but I've heard most newer cars now have a blackbox/tattle tale that police can access if in an accident etc.... is this true and if so where is it and how do I disable it ?? Big bro doesn't need to know when I stray.... thanks

imagine the owners of some dodge trucks..   as they leave the new car lot..  they do a massive burn out.. turning on the check engine light..   when the code was checked.. it as a ABUSE of vehicle code.. warrantee void.. and that code could NOT be erased..  and since it was usually read at the dealership.. it was entered into the online warrantee database.. so end of warrantee ..

i don't know if fords have that same feature.


there are articles all over the web on these....

I found an article from May 2011 saying that all new cars in the U.S. have to have a blackbox after June 2011 (http://www.examiner.com/article/new-car-purchases-starting-june-will-have-a-mandatory-black-box-installed) Now, where is it and how do I turn it off ?
