No Crank Dead Battery – 2009 Lincoln MKS

NO CRANK / DISCHARGED BATTERY – BUILT BEFORE 3/17/2009
LINCOLN: 2009 MKS

 

2009 MKS vehicles equipped with the Intelligent Access with Push Button Start system and built before 3/17/2009 may exhibit an engine that will not crank caused by a dead battery condition.

This concern could be caused by customers accidentally leaving the vehicle’s Push-Button Start system in Accessory mode as they exit the vehicle.

 

The Push-Button Start system will not turn off the vehicle automatically when left in Accessory mode.

A new 60 minute time-out feature is available to customers who routinely leave their vehicle in Accessory mode; vehicle will automatically turn off from Accessory mode after 60 minutes.

Reprogramming the Remote Function Actuator (RFA) module will enable this time-out feature.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE

NOTE: A RED TEST-EYE INDICATES THE BATTERY IS DISCHARGED, NOT NECESSARILY DEFECTIVE.

NOTE: FAILURE TO FULLY CHARGE THE BATTERY BEFORE RETESTING MAY CAUSE FALSE READING.

  1. Inspect and evaluate the battery charging system, to determine the cause of the low voltage condition.
  2. If the time-out feature is desired, reprogram the RFA module to the latest calibration using IDS or Ford J2534 release B61.07 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2009.5 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.

 


 

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.

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