  • DTCs P06EA, P06EB, P200C and/or P200E, proceed to Step 3.
  1. Is DTC P200C and/or P200E stored in PCM memory with no other EGT DTCs present?
    1. No – proceed to Step 5.
    1. Yes – proceed to Step 4.
  1. Use Integrated Diagnostic Service (IDS) freeze frame data readings to confirm when DTC P200C and/or P200E were set. Replace the corresponding EGT sensor as instructed below. Refer to the WSM, Section 303-14 Engine Control Components for EGT sensor locations and replacement procedure.
  • If EGT12 temperature is 650 °C (1292 °F) greater than EGT11 temperature replace EGT 12.
  • If EGT13 temperature is above 900 °C (1742 °F) replace EGT 13.
  • If IDS freeze frame data shows EGT13 temperature is 650 °C (1292 °F) greater than EGT12 temperature replace EGT 13.
  • If EGT14 temperature is above 900 °C (1742 °F) replace EGT 14.
  • If IDS freeze frame data shows EGT14 temperature is 650 °C (1292 °F) greater than EGT13 temperature replace EGT 14.
  • If two or more EGT sensors are reading 900 °C (1562 °F) or higher, or if the freeze frame temperature data does not fit the criteria listed in Step 3, this article does not apply. Refer to PC/ED manual pinpoint test RC to diagnose the concern.
  1. Based on the DTCs retrieved in Step 1, replace the corresponding EGT sensor(s) as instructed below. Refer to the WSM, Section 303-14, Engine Control Components for EGT sensor locations and replacement procedure.
  • DTC P06EA on 2011-2012 pickups replace EGT14 and on 2011-2012 chassis cabs replace EGT13.
  • DTC P06EA on all 2013-2015 F-Super Duty models replace EGT12.
  • DTC P06EB replace EGT14.
  1. Is the vehicle a 2014-2015 pickup (Chassis-Cert) model and built on 11/7/2013 and through 12/10/2014?
    1. No – repair is complete.
    1. b. Yes – Reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration using IDS release 94.04 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. Clear all DTCs.

NOTE: ADVISE THE CUSTOMER THAT THIS VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH AN ADAPTIVE TRANSMISSION SHIFT STRATEGY WHICH ALLOWS THE VEHICLE’S COMPUTER TO LEARN THE TRANSMISSION’S UNIQUE PARAMETERS AND IMPROVE SHIFT QUALITY. WHEN THE ADAPTIVE STRATEGY IS RESET, THE COMPUTER WILL BEGIN A RE-LEARNING PROCESS. THIS RE-LEARNING PROCESS MAY RESULT IN FIRMER THAN NORMAL UPSHIFTS AND DOWNSHIFTS FOR SEVERAL DAYS.

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.
