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.
J2534 Device using Ford Module Programming (FMP) can Reprogram and Configure most Modules. Latest Calibration Information
