Yea you can. You load up the config section in Forscan and do each module at a time using the same AB file.

When you are in the as-built programming section of FORScan and have selected the module you would like to reconfigure (as-built), select 'Load all'

Then in the file browser window that appears, navigate to the location of the as-built file - remember to select 'File type' from the window, and in the drop-down select .ab and the as-built file should appear for selection.

Why is this not working for me?

I have latest Forscan sw, extended license showing activated, Windows 10 laptop fully updated, good OBD unit with USB cable and switch, got the asb file from Ford site came in *.ab file format.

All I am trying to do is reprogram my replacement Sync 2 APIM and load the APIM module asb file. Do you have to reload other modules as well?

Thanks for ANY leads AT ALL.

Will loading the ab file into forscan make a factory reset? I'm stuck with two codes after changing some codes. It was some minor stuff, but now I don't have ABS nor ESP because some DTC errors (U3002:62-48 for PSCM and U3002:62-48 for ABS modules). Will this do the trick?
