Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
Below is the definition of the code P050B from the factory Ford shop manual.
COLD START IGNITION TIMING PERFORMANCE.
Did you have this code before replacing all 6 coils, spark plugs and the PCM repair?
no, I was driving my car when the engine light came on. I was driving to get it checked when it started to flash. Within two to three minutes the car lost power. I tried to start it and it would not turn over. I had to have it towed. When my mechanic checked it there were two coils burnt out. So the six coils were replaced and the pcm board was repaired.
when trying to start it would crank but not start. The pcm fuse was burnt so it was replaced. The car then started and when I drove it it drove a little rough for about a minute then was fine. After driving for about 20 minutes the check engine light came on and the code was the P050B code when tested. All the possible problems associated with that code has been checked out and we are still unable to find a solution.
repaired, all new circuits put in mine.
Was that code there before the PCM was repaired?
Where did you get the coils?Ford or auto parts store?
The reason is this code P0050B is leaning towards a bad PCM internal circuits.
you asked what the first code was before the car died, they codes were P0353 Coil C primary/Sec circuit malfunction P0355 Coil E and P0356 Coil F the same
Those are coil driver failures internal in the PCM. I would get a replacement PCM for the vehicle. Since the P050B was not there before the repair, the problem is in the PCM.
