Lincoln MKZ Hybrid

Post by Haidar »

I change my rear shocks to standard ones, not the one that have plug.
But I have the VDM "Vehicle Dynamic Management" and its triggering "Driver Control Malfunction in IPC",
how to disable it from VDM and/or IPC maybe either one will solve the problem? I just want to get rid of the annoying error message?
Please help

Thanks

The profile mentions "Fusion 3.0 2010".
The question is about a Lincoln.
What is the model year?
Post a scan of the Modules and the initial data so all the strategies can be read.

Hi Ecmbuster,

Its a 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 2014, with " VDM " Vehicle Dynamic Module". The rear and front socks have a plug.
There are three modes for driving in VDM: Sport, Normal and Comfort.

I want to get rid of the message in the cluster
Thanks

If I understand your message correctly, the rear shocks have been replaced and the magnetic sensor didn't come with the replacements.
The front shocks are still original and have the magnetic sensors. All leveling sensors are still connected.
The message on the instrument cluster is a notice / warning for Vehicle Dynamic Management.

One message was of interest with the strategies: Errors: - UNKNOWN COMMAND: 1 ( 1.0% )

When looking at all the strategies, it would appear the dealer has updated majority of the network or someone has been "playing with the car".

There are two ways only to repair the notice / warning on the Instrument Cluster.

1) Install the correct shocks and have the system recalibrated.

2) Call your local dealer and ask one (1) question.
Did this model also come without VDM - Vehicle Dynamics Module in that model year.
I suspect not but you never know because of the inherited problems with these models, especially when the production line was halted for all the controller and network nightmares that were on the production floor and are still being "addressed".

If for some reason there is a model that didn't come with the Vehicle Dynamic Suspension, that proves a challenge.
A) CCC (Central Configuration) if available, will need to be changed to remove Vehicle Dynamic Suspension System network address with IDS.
B) ALL control modules that are connected via network MUST have a new strategies with IDS.
C) ALL Vehicle Dynamic Suspension System components MUST be removed.

Of course all of the questions will arise about As-Built data.
The answer is: If A, B and C are accomplished, none of the As-Built will ever fit because all data via the vehicles VIN, will now be incorrect because of those network changes and Strategy updates.
