Re: Cannot re-program old keys on new ECU

Couldn't you tow it to the dealer and pay them for less than $1200? Personally I don't mess with that stuff, it's not worth the risk.

You might want to look into ForSCAN to see if it will do what you want.

Re: So these cars are not called Taurus anymore?

Correct, the police version does not use the Taurus name at all. Which, by the way, Ford does not make the (Taurus) police sedan anymore. Similarly, the police Explorer does not use the Explorer name, it is called the Police Interceptor Utility, and the Fusion is called the Police Responder Hybrid S...

Re: Transmission question

Were you able to duplicate the jerking motion while watching the misfire counts? You want to watch the misfire counts as you duplicate the concern. I'm not familiar with the P1124 code, it may be related. I see P1124 Throttle Position Sensor Out of Self-Test Range @ Ford OBD Codes . I suppose if the...

Re: Transmission question

Is the P1299 a current, pending or permanent code? If it's not current or pending, don't worry about it, it's just historical and to my knowledge can't be cleared (it just tells Ford techs that the engine may have overheated at some point in the past, which I believe they use for warranty claims - a...

Re: Transmission question

I’ve heard the same thing about tapping the brake regarding the F150, I’m sure it would be the same. Check misfire data & fluid condition.

Re: Transmission question

It’s probably a misfire or a torque converter problem then. Check Mode $06 misfire data next https://www.motor.com/magazinepdfs/072011_09.pdf

Re: 2000 Taurus died going down the road

There are no fuel pump diagnostic codes. Can you post the exact codes? I would recommend stop replacing parts and diagnose before buying anything else. For example, if it has spark that's good enough, it doesn't warrant plugs, wires and coil packs if you have spark. The coolant being blown out is co...

Re: Anyone what this part is called? Child seat anchor cover??

I had one of those missing on a Jag I owned a few years back. I priced it out and promptly decided I didn't need that little piece of plastic in place. I still had it, it had just broke off. $17.91 is a deal compared to Jag pricing. The funny thing is my Jag was an 06 so it had a bunch of Ford parts...

Re: What MPG is everyone getting?

Have you scanned for diagnostic codes? Check your tire pressures, alignment in spec? Correct factory tire size? etc.

Are you tracking fuel economy manually using km driven & liters used vs dash readout?
