Forscan loads then automatically from the internet
Then you can collect them and flash em onto your module

Anyone with a mk4 here?
I flashed the DDM and RCM module, all went well but some functionality changed. Since i wasn't able to flash the PDM module due to some service interrupted error, the windows on the left behave differently than the ones on the right, when using Global close. The left ones close fast at first and on the last 5 to 10 cm, really slow.
I've also lost some selective unlocking features like the ability to unlock only the trunk while the doors remained locked (using the keyless entry feature). Now all doors unlock when trying to open the trunk.
I didn't mess with the anything else but somehow the steering seems to be affected, the level of electrical assistance seems lower, and requires some little extra force to steer.

I would really like to be able to have the update function.
I have a Fiesta 2018 1.0 (100) Ecoboost Automatic ST-Line X
Focus MK3.5 1.0 (125) Ecoboost Automatic St-Line
Focus MK4 1.5 Ecoblue Diesel (120) Manual Titanium

I am eager to keep the PCM and TCM softwares up to date on the Automatics, especially the MK3.5 Focus as it's about to go out of warranty

Using ELM 327 Modded

Work is in progress, support for Focus mk4 is limited at the moment; not all updated files are available from Ford server, some require paid subscription.
You should avoid messing with the PCM, as you may loose data, that only Ford IDS can reprogram. Best scenario, you get increased consumption.

Dear friend,
Do you have done a full recalibration of your doirs?
Before that you have to reset your module to default and then do a relearning of all desired and needed features.
With my mk3 i ve got similar issues after reflashing the ddm and pdm module
