No
Ford Mechanic: 6Bucs, Ford Senior Master replied 7 months ago
Ok, that code is set when the instrument cluster loses communication with the transmission control module. You can try unplugging the connectors at the module under the hood to inspect for any loose connector pins, corrosion, or water intrusion, if nothing is found to be problematic, the network communication and programming are going to need to be checked with the factory IDS diagnostic equipment.

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
