Did you get any trouble codes from the TCM (Transmission Control Module)?
​Make sure all the wiring connectors are plugged in around the transmission. The TCM is mounted on the top of the transmission.

Ok, I'll check. But pretty sure all connections made

If the TCM sees a problem, it will set a trouble code and inform the PCM and the code P2104 is a result, along with the forced idle to protect itself.

Can't check till the morning. Can I still reply then?

Yes, but I work at my dealership during the day. I am only on line in the evening after I get off of work.

Forgot to mention, info screen says Regen blocked and also service brakes

Y​ou may have trouble codes in more than one module. You should have the complete vehicle checked for trouble codes. Not just the PCM and TCM.

Was hoping to avoid that, but as a last resort I'll have it towed.

Did you replace just the engine or did you replace the engine and transmission as an assembly?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Just the engine, dropped the subframe and too it all out, then swapped engines

It is very possible you may have left something unplugged. I have done it and I have been working for Ford for 30 years.

Checked thouroughly for missed connections, but found none. I do notice the throttle body is whining when the key is in on position, sounds like it's trying to do something. Is that normal?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I have done the HV battery recharge with that button by the driver's footwell with a charger on several times, I've also connected the negative battery cable to the positive terminal several times to "relearn" the throttle body as someone recommended. Just wanted to be complete.

What parts did you use from the used engine?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Throttle body, intake manifold, and oil filter housing.

Do you still have the original throttle body from the old engine?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No phone call, sorry, I'm in a movie. I may have the old one I'll check.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
If I can't back out of the call, let's make it tomorrow. Can't do it now

That is the website asking that, not me. It is automated. Check and when you can and install and retest.

Will do I'll write back tomorrow. Thanks

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.
