what do I need to do the downloading and uploading ?

Klause, to down load and up load you will need a dealer scan tool or access to one if you are trying to do this your self.

I do not have a dealer in my area (I have moved to Europe) and I was wondering if there was a work around. It seems like it is impossible. Thanks.

Unfortunately no there is no work around . It has to be done or it will not work.

Hi Ron,


can you please also provide me with the instructions of downloading and uploading from the SJB (Section 418-1, mentioned in the previous doc). My local dealer (Europe) does not provide and deal with Ford Escapes so I would like to hand them in the instructions just to be safe.



Hello again Klaus, See the programming instructions HERE
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Thanks Ron, but you have already provided me this section and it does not have the programming instructions. It refers to section 418-01 for them but it does not have them.
