Yrs they tried but pcm not contacting the keys thet said to me.
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 11 months ago

does there scanner even communicate with the PCM?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
That i dont know they said maybe but im not sure.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What would help this problem?
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 11 months ago

if the scanner does not communicate with the PCM, then the download of the new software most likely corrupted the PCM, and the PCM would need to be replaced,Tim

Customer reply replied 11 months ago

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
