Focus woes?
#11
Here - this is image #1 for the Codes for the computer - to see if you have the correct numbers. The 2nd image isn't worth putting up - it's just a picture of that stupid under-hood sticker that the dealer puts saying they have modified something. Hope this helps WinkYea, also, the only way that I know of reprogramming stuff like this is TO GO TO THE DEALER. Here in the detroit area they charge from 1-2 hours labor (no parts are included) so expect around ~$200 for everything. Smile

Quote:Some auto stores and every ford dealership can reflash your PCM. Sometimes, when a problem like this is discovered a reflash is the fix. If its covered by a TSB it should be NO CHARGE to you if you take it to the dealership (not sure how the warranty works :dunno: ..even if they dont cover it, its not that much to get a reflash) They are constantly updating vehicles and the controls for the PCM for better economy and conditions like this. Check it out.


If the vehicle is out of warranty, which it probably is or else this thread wouldn't exist right now, I can guarantee that the reflash will not be free. TSBs do not mean that the problem will be fixed for free by the dealer. TSBs are there to simply aid the technician in diagnosing problems on more complicated issues. I have yet to meet an independent shop that can reflash PCMs, only dealers can AFAIK.

You are probably looking at the labor rate of an hour for a reflash, so anywhere from $65-$90 depending on how much your dealer charges.

Sometimes A1 Cardone will flash a rebuilt PCM for ya. Youll have to see a parts house for that.

MY car has a rough idle sometimes, and when its wet it tends to do strange things. I pinned the wet issue to a slipping belt. The rough idle I don't know aobut...

How are they capable of flashing a PCM for every make and model of vehicle?
