Ford Focus mk2 ASR, ESP issue after odometer write

Post by pjung »

Hi All,

I have a Ford Focus MK2 2.0 l petrol car. I tried for curiosity to write the odometer on my car, I was able to increase the km value, but not to decrease it from the "odometer write" menu. Than I tried to use the menu under IC programming, called "write odometer value in km" or so. As I wrote the former value from this menu, the decreasing also didn't succeeded, but many problems came instead of.

The problems I got:
- auxiliary heater failure (the car isn't equipped with such that)
- EPB malfunction (the car isn't equipped with such that)
- a lot of configurations altered (chime beeping continuously in reverse gear; speed warning chime at 120 km/h; the 5 km/h offset is gone; the engine is cutting off at 7000 RPM - normally it could run up to 8000 RPM - ; I got an extra menu item, "hill launch assist", which would be nice, if it would work)
- And the worst of all, the ESP and ASR are completely gone. It doesn't shows up like a failure, it is invisible for the system. Even the check light won't show up when I set the car on ignition.

I tried to reprogram all the systems with IDS, but it doesn't helped, I could only get rid of the reverse gear warning, the auxiliary heater, and EPB warning (I set the last 2 to unequipped). The other nasty problems are still there, and the car won't recognize that she has an ESP and ASR.
I used the newest version (2.3.29) of FORScan, with VXDIAG VCX nano, for the odometer write procedure. The car is a Ford Focus MK2 2.0 l petrol version, with 145 HP / 107 kW, from 2005, engine code is AODA, the ECU is a Visteon ESU13 5M51-12A650-SD 3CGD.

Could someone please help me with this issue? With some AS built data, or maybe with a factory default flash image for the systems in the car, or something, which can revert those to the original state.

And I think this is a software bug, which should be solved, or the function should be removed or disabled, because it can cause major problems.

as stated in all the release notes , odometer write can only be increased , their may even be a warning before writing it too.
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .
The search function is there for a reason use it.

Yes, but there was the option to decrease, and you get a warning almost before every write operation, and this operation seemed harmless...

as far as i know their was never an option to decrease the milage for legal reasons and to not allow clocking of cars etc where people lower the milage of of them.

This answer isn't helpful with the main topic. But there was an option "write odometer value in km", which is legal under certain circumstances. By the way, increasing can be also illegal, but in this topic I asked for how can I fix the ESP and ASR which are gone, and the other modified parameters.

Have you tried loading copies of your saved files? This circumstance shows why it is wise to save every file, not just the one you think you are changing.

Your fallback can be to get the files off the Motoecraft site and reload the ones that seem to be affected (IPC, BCM etc). The question is do you load and test one by one or do you do all of the at once? I don't know.

I haven't saved, because I did not modified AS Built data, and I don't expected that this will cause a lot of trouble.

The Motorcraft site can be a solution. I think it is more safe to load and test them one by one. I tried to reprogram every available module with IDS (including ABS), but this hasn't solved the problem.

How can I use this data to revert everything back to factory settings? And I also downloaded the .as file, which is an XML formatted file. Can I import it somehow?

I have never used the Motoecraft files and I don't know the exact procedure. This question has been answer many times on the forum so you should find it with a search.

With the Motorcraft AB file it was pretty easy to fix the problem. FORScan can open it, and is able to use most of the blocks from it. After applying the original AS-Built data, everything works fine, as before the problem. :)
There was only differences between the IPC configurations.

Thanks for the help!
