Re: help reprogram pcm

This car is central configuration (CC) based (2011MY). You need to upload your factory CC ABD using BdyCM Central Configuration (Main) function and see if it fixes the problem.

Also you need to install the latest (2.3.37) FORScan version. You use 2.3.35 that is outdated already.

Re: Service Procedure is not supported (PCM Reset)

Users often misunderstand this function. The module reset is a simple service function that just reboots the module. It is similar to pressing "Reset" button on your desktop. It is helpful if module behaves non-adequate or freezes. It is also necessary in some cases, for example after configuration ...

Re: Ford Focus ACM dead after failed Calibration file write with IDS

It is hard to say why your ACM cannot be programmed by IDS and FORScan. But in contrast to IDS, in case of FORScan you should be able to provide debug information for analysis so we could check and find out what happens. Instruction on how to prepare & extract debug information can be found here: ht...

Re: B2139 with virginized fuel pump

Hello, This procedure in FORScan is identical to Ford IDS. The procedure is stable for many years already, a lot of people used it. The fact PATS lamp didn't indicate any problems after programming most like means programming was successful. It is hard to assume was was going wrong. In such cases we...

Re: Antivirus false positive

We tested 2.3.37 on virustotal.com before the delivery, it didn't show any detections with Microsoft. It started to show it only on December, 1st. So either the site (virustotal.com) has problems with antivirus update, or Microsoft identified 2.3.37 as a threat AFTER the release. Anyway, we have sub...

Re: How does FORScan identify modules that are present

Yes, FORScan has its own database, so it knows what modules are available for every model. For Explorer 2017+MY it looks for FCDIm and FCIMB modules (not FCIM). Please also note that FORScan performs full scan only on the first connect. Please find more details in this article about vehicle profiles...
