We need beta-testers to test learning functions for automated transmission Powershift 6DCT450 (MPS6) on the following vehicles:

Focus Mk 3
Focus Mk 3.5
Kuga Mk 1
Kuga Mk 2
Kuga Mk 2.5
Mondeo Mk 4
Mondeo Mk 5
Galaxy/S-Max 2006-2014
Galaxy/S-Max 2015+

The function contains 2 parts: "Shift Fork System Learn" and "Clutch System Learn". It is relatively safe. It is recommended to have USB adapter for testing.

If you want to participate, please contact us via PM or email (http://forscan.org/contactus.html)

Update 2018-12-25: testing is finished.

I wish I have some spare times.. 2 kids! :)
I work for a ford dealer, so it's easy for me to revert back if something crash.

Are you talknig about the DSP6? In north america this transmission is called like this.
Mabye I could give a try one night.

I use a VCM2 to communicate.

DPS6 is Powershift 6DCT250 with dry clutches, used on Focus and Fiesta family. Function for DPS6 learning was added to FORScan 3+ years ago:

https://forscan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1672

So it doesn't require a beta testing.

MPS6 is Powershift 6DCT450 with wet clutches, used in European models: Mondeo, Galaxy, S-Max, Kuga. Actually had no chance to see MPS6 on any of models for North America, so not sure if it is used there at all.

Clutch system learn. Mondeo MK4 Powershift 6DCT450.
I tried the test and was surprised. Previously, the gearbox changed poorly up and down with small gears. Now, after a small test drive, everything has been softer than it should be. The test ( forscan ) was frightening but at least initially excited about that.

i would try it cant hurt as long as you follow the instructions , if it doesnt then i would start suspecting something mechanical or a fault with the anti wheel spin / anti locking sytem , not sure what its called or if it uses the same system to detect when the wheel looses grip , would suspect it does but dont know for sure sorry .
