Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This message usually indicates a problem with the parking Aid system but in order to know where to start your testing you are going to need to start first with scanning the system to see which B code is setting, if you can get this done and post back with the results I will send you the test steps to determine the cause.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Cuando le conectamos el scanner no da ningun codigo ya q no essta leyendo el scanner
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Cuando se le conecta el scanner no me brinda ningun codigo ya que no reconoce el scanner
Expert:  Ronnie replied 10 months ago.

With out knowing the fault code then your going to need to start with the enclosed pinpoint test. Copy and paste it to your browser to open and view it.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
My Lincoln Navigator was on and trailed off and now a message saying PRNDL error no park assist want help me solve it myself please...
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Sorry most of us on here do not speak Spanish. We have to use the Google translator. Are you having trouble with the Parking Aid — Reverse Sensing System?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok I'll use the translator.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

So are you having trouble with the Parking Aid system?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Lincoln was on and after 3 to 5 seconds trailed off and I said message prndl error no park assist and does not recognized the scanner
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Previously while initiating reverse sensors did not sound but the lincoln worked well and now with the message not to turn.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Check fuse #27 in the dash fuse box first. It is a 5 amp fuse. It sends power to the Parking Aid Module.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
All fuses and relays this good and were tested.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Ok, go to the parking aid module mounted behind the left rear inside trim panel and check for power on pin #12, the GRAY/YELLOW striped wire with the key turned on. See the diagram below to see what the connector looks like and where pin#12 is. It is connector C4014b.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
11.5volt
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Check the ground wire on pin #7, the BLACK/BLUE striped wire.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Has continuity and measure 4.5, 5 ohms
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Ok, what type of scan tool are you using? Some Scan tools do not communicate with the Parking Aid Module.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I had rented a Snapon scanner and always said he could not communicate.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Then either the PAM is bad or the wiring from the diagnostic connector to the PAM module is bad.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I thought that the scanner was bad and got another but does not read let me know how I can solve this.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Below is the network pin point test.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
16.5ohms
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
H2 is 16.5 ohms
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Below is the location of connector C238. It is behind the drivers side kick panel.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
H4 6.7ohms
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

The problem is in the wiring between the DLC and C238.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
As I can verify.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Use a separate piece of wire and run it from the DLC to C238. Leave the factory wire intact. The new wire will be what we call a jumper wire.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I make a puende from the C238 to be a jumper or dlc.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Run a wire from pin #3 at the DLC to pin #6 of C238. Then retest it like in H4.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
H2 or h4
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

H4. Then see if the scan tool talks to the PAM.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry doing something wrong is 9ohms h2 and h4 is 6 ohms began the process again because it was bad cable using a multimeter.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

6 ohms is too high. It is supposed to be below 5 ohms.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry is h2 is. 9ohms
H4 .6ohms
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
0.9ohms and 0.6 ohms
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Sorry, that is good, That is below 1 ohm. If H2 result is 0.9 ohms, go to H7.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
H7 already made the step and the problem remains the same.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

H7 states to replace the PAM. Did you replace it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I have not replaced the piece as expenses not want to do without knowing what the problem is. You recommend replacing the PAM.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

The scan tool you have will not communicate with the PAM. Either the scan tool is not capable or the PAM is bad. You may want to take it to a dealership and have them scan it before spending any money on parts. Just to make sure.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok so soon have that information I will contact you.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

No problem, please keep me informed.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
If the sensors are damaged could also cause the problem or not.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

If there is a bad sensor or the radar sensor is bad, then it will cause a problem with the parking aid, bud it will not cause the module itself to fail.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
right now under the information we have verified the problem is in the module.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Publicado por JustAnswer mediante solicitud del cliente) Hola, me gustaría solicitarle la Llamada telefónica. Dígame si necesita más información o envíeme la oferta de Servicio Adicional para así poder continuar.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
right now under the information we have verified the problem is in the module not sensor.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Right now, yes a module, but I would like you to have a different scan tool, preferably Ford to test the system for proper operation and trouble codes before replacing any parts. Kind of like a second opinion.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
On the day Monday or Tuesday I'll get the module and will scannear and let you know what happened.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The coach of the ford that came to my house and went away and did not communicate with the bus that says you can not communicate..
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

Go to the DLC connector where the scan tool connects. See if you have power on pin #16. See the diagram below.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.
