Just a little background on me I do Performance Engine Tuning and so I'm very familiar with downloading and uploading the ECU bin files and what these different fault codes mean .Basically anytime you have an internal memory checksum error you're looking at a failed or corrupt bin file in the ECU. The checksum is a method of a computer file checking its data Integrity by adding up a certain row of the file in hexadecimal format and then verifying that it adds up to a certain number.There are cases in which you can reprogram the ECU and get this fault to go away, but if when you install a new file the full code does not go away then it means that the ECU is faulty.No some software updates don't actually rewrite the entire bin file they only rewrite part of it and then that case you might not be able to get rid of the fault code, however unless you want to try to get the knowledge inability to download the whole bin file and reupload it on your own using an aftermarket free software on the internet, you're basically stuck using your scan tool and the partial bin file update.Because you can probably get an ECU fairly inexpensively on car-part.com, and because they're going to be a fairly steep learning curve learn how to download and upload files to the ECU I think I would recommend you just getting a used ECU and programming it to the vehicle.If I've answered your question to your satisfaction please remember to hit accept next to my name is ***** ***** the only way that I am compensated for my time. If you have any further questions about this even after hitting except you can respond to this topic.

Oh and answer your question no there's no way that it's damaged wires this fault specifically means it the file on the eeprom inside the ECU is corrupt faulty wires could not cause this.

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.

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.

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.
