It’s a bug in ForScan.
Stimpy, you have anything to back that statement up? I just tried with an "aftermarket" camera and it only made it to 8%. Trying it with the original, though non-working, camera it would successfully complete every time.
The bug is that ForScan does not report that it has failed, it just stops at 8%, then does nothing. There are many bugs like this present in Forscan.

Hey did you guys ever figure out a solution to this? It's driving me nuts! I have tried an aftermarket camera and then ordered a replacement directly from ford. No luck with either of them and it fails at 8% :(

No updates, other than there was something about using non Ford parts... But ForScan still quits without explaining why? If that's true, then that's pretty bad to be honest. Also, if you are using a genuine Ford Camera, then the problem is, once again, a bug in Forscan. Many of the service routines end with failure when using any version of Forscan made in the last year or so, I ended up having to use another program to clean the mess ForScan made of my IPC and BCMi module configuration a few months ago. I don't know how to report it anymore, as there is/was no English presence in this forum to report to the devs.

But the development of this software has all but stopped anyway, they only seem to focus on adding mostly American cars, and adding service routines which should have been there from day 1 for other cars and models.

Most of us have given up hoping for the new UI, Powershift calibration, firmware updates etc...

I wish there was a viable alternative, but it's either Russian daylight robbery with trying to buy tokens, and having to use unknown hardware boxes plugged in to your car, and no support, or paying for a real Ford IDS licence and adaptor...

Man that’s unfortunate. I was hoping someone would have said they took it to the dealership and had a solution haha

I did notice it wants me to program in MS switch setting but IPMB is listed under the HS? Maybe that’s the problem? It would only affect 2016 models since the 2011-2015 models use BdyCM module instead?

Hey just an update. The wire assembly that runs through the hole into the inside of the rear panel is likely the culprit. I had severe corrosion and I’m in the process of replacing it now. Half the wires were corroded on the connector and half were fine. I’m assuming that’s why I could reset but not program it.

Yes, I have heard that the problem most people have with the camera intermittently working, is due to the fact that the camera control module in the boot is badly earthed.

I have heard that attaching a secondary earth also is a permanent fix to this issue.

There is at least one video, made within the last 9 months or so, from a British guy showing you how to fix this on the Mondeo, in a video on YouTube.

Got a link for that video.

Also how do you reconfigure the camera with forscan.
I’m getting B115E in IPMB bus signal/message failure

And C1001 vision system electrical failure in APIM
