ACTION:

Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE

  1. Disconnect the 12 volt battery. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 414-01.
  1. Connect the Rotunda Midtronics GR1-190 or GRX-3590 Diagnostic Battery Charger to the vehicle’s battery terminal posts only. Battery cables must be removed and no other connections, such as body ground, can be in the circuit during testing.
    1. Select diagnostic fast charge.
    1. On GR1-190 only – select above 400 km (250 miles) or below 400 km (250 miles) based on vehicle mileage.
    1. Select battery type lead acid.
    1. Enter cold cranking amp (CCA) rating of 390 CCA.
  1. Did the battery pass the diagnostic fast charge test?
    1. Yes – allow battery to fully charge. After charging is complete, reconnect the 12 volt battery. Refer to WSM, Section 414-01. Proceed to Step 4.
    1. No – record the failure code. Replace the battery. Refer to WSM, Section 414-01. Make sure the new 12 volt battery is fully charged. Using Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) service tool, perform the battery monitoring system (BMS) reset after the new battery is connected. Proceed to Step 4.
  1. Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using IDS or Ford J2534 release 96.05 or higher. Make sure you are connected to the internet when entering module programming to obtain the latest updates. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraftservice.com.
    1. When module programming is initiated for the PCM, the IDS will check for coordinated software updates for the following modules: anti-lock brake system (ABS), battery energy control module (BECM), secondary on-board diagnostic control module (SOBDM), PCM and transmission control module (TCM). Follow the scan tool instructions to reprogram all affected modules.
    1. Inspect the vehicle communication module (VCM) and cables for any damage. Make sure scan tool connections are not interrupted during programming.
    1. Connect the VCM to the vehicle’s primary data link connector (DLC). Do not connect the VCM to the gateway module (GWM) DLC.
    1. Turn off all accessories (radio, heated/cooled seats, headlamps, interior lamps, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system) and close the doors.
    1. Disconnect any aftermarket accessories.
    1. Disable sleep mode, screen saver and hibernation modes on the computer used for IDS.
    1. Create all IDS vehicle sessions with key on engine off (KOEO). Starting the vehicle before creating a session will cause errors within the programming inhale process.
    1. Connect a battery charger to the 12 volt battery.
  1. Was the vehicle built on or before 11/21/2014?
    1. No – procedure complete.
    1. Yes – reprogram the GWM. Proceed to Step 6.
  1. Was the vehicle built on or before 9/2/2013?
    1. No – procedure complete.
    1. Yes – check the telematics control unit (TCU) build date / part number. Proceed to Step 7.
  1. Is the TCU suffix part letter A or B?
    1. No – procedure complete.
    1. Yes – replace the TCU. Refer to WSM, Section 415-00.

Service Information & Reprogramming

Software necessary to program electronic modules to the latest calibration level, perform module initialization (PATS), and set Programmable Parameters on Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.

Ford Module Programming (FMP) is a software application that allows subscribers to program electronic modules on Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles. It can be used for:

  • Reprogramming emission-related (OBDII) modules on some vehicles manufactured in 1995 and all vehicles manufactured from 1996 to the present
  • Reprogramming or reconfiguring non-emission-related modules on many vehicles (UBP and MS-CAN not supported)

In addition, module initialization (PATS) functions such as Keycode Erase/Reprogram and PCM Parameter Reset can be done using this application.
