Does your scan tool have access to the PAM module?

Using your scan tool can it show you if the sensors can see objects?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No I did not. I don’t have a scan tool. Is there anything else I can check? Fuse or something.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 months ago

Fuse 35 is the fuse to heck. Beyond that, I will have to say have a scan tool check it out or replace the PAM park aid module.

You now will see a rating scale a row of yellow stars from bad to excellent, because I have posted my 1st full/partial answer. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

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.

BRNew Jersey
