Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have used this scanner dozens of times on similar trucks. And I tried another one that normally works and they both don't.

Ok. Which is pin E36 in the test (AE5 part)? It's on a diff plug then the B ones?

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Is that the front of the 3? It is a manual trans and only has rear 2 plugs on pcm.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
As far as I can tell...

I recommend taking it to a shop and have them put a hi-end scan tool on it like a FORD IDS

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Tried another pcm from a automatic tranny one and that one connected.... Then put the old pcm back in and now it connects...

sometimes you just gotta shake your head at these vehicles.

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.
