I've got a PCM update for my 2013 Kuga, apart from backing up the AsBuilt is there anything else I need to do after installing the new firmware?.

Will all the current fuel trims etc be reset?.

Has anyone had any luck lately with getting hold of the beta version of software or is it just a waiting game?

Would love to get this - trying to "recover" a dead module before I get a new one!

I'm interested in testing the 2.4 beta version for programming firmware in my 2018 Escape. Have the J2534 programmer. I have a lifetime forscan license. If someone can send me a link for 2.4, I'd be grateful and will report back with results. Thank you.

Hi,
I would like to become a beta tester too. I have an ELS27 and I can test functions on Mondeo Mk4 (facelift and pre-facelift), Galaxy Mk3, Focus Mk2, Focus Mk3, Focus Mk4 and Mondeo Mk5 (Europe).
Thanks!

I'd just like to confirm a successful gearbox TCU firmware update on our 2013 Kuga Powershift 6DCT450.

I had to use a 12 amp battery charger to get sufficient voltage, the car seems to run a lot of systems with just the ignition on.

I used a proper 2board VCM2 clone, estimated time 2hr to 3hr but in really took 2 minutes!.

I did have IDS as a backup if things went wrong but FORScan is so much easier to use and navigate, a credit to the Team!.

Car is night and day different with the new gearbox software.

Thanks again, Keith.
