This ford transit came into the workshop on a recovery truck from an ipswich based ford sales specialist.
The vehicle was fitted with a replacement used ECU / PCM that required programming and initialising with the BCM.
Ford IDS online
The ecu programming is completed using ford IDS online to transfer the original OEM factory data to the ECU / PCM.
Ford IDS Diagnostic test
Firstly we ran a self test on the vehicle to ensure that the original diagnosis was correct then we proceeded to the programming stage. After the procedure to program the ECU / PCM was started this normally takes 30 / 40 minutes to complete.
After the programming is completed the initialisation with the other car modules need to be started to ensure the ECU PCM can talk to every module in the vehicle including start authority with PATS (Immobiliser).
