Expert:  A. Penland replied 5 months ago.

I need to know what module you are getting the U1009 and U1027 from? They are communication codes and they are produced when a module stops communicating with the other modules. But I need to know what module they cam from. Instrument cluster, Engine Computer (PCM), ABS module......

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Different tech here, would you like me to try and help?

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris

u1009 code is engine torque u1027 code is missing data engine rpm my car is a 99 Lincoln town car
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Do you know which modules stored these codes?

Are these the only codes. I would expect some P codes from the PCM or some ABS codes with this information.
