hello all, we replaced the transmission assembly in this vehicle last week and now we need to reprogram the Solenoid Body Strategy Data File and the Solenoid Body ID. the question is this, can I do this with my J-box or will it need to be done with a factory tool? thanks!

It can be done jbox. Personally I would download forscan​.​org it is only 10 dollars for an annual script and it does this easier (in my opinion) than the ids does

I purchased this $50 USB interface on Amazon, so far so good. Forscan​.​org folks say they worked with the hardware company for maximum compatibility. amazon​.​com/dp/B081VQVD3F…

Yes, you can do this with your jbox in FJDS.

Do you have the new numbers to input into the pcm? If so a J-box will work. We do them all the time.

Do you flash Mazda or Jaguar on this laptop? If so you will have to delete them to flash a ford. Send me a picture of the error if you can. ford and chevy are known to have server issues. I can tell you they won't admit to it.

When installing a new solenoid pack/valve body, a scanner capable of the procedure will be needed to program the new 13 digit solenoid strategy and 7 digit solenoid body ID codes into PCM, and then the adaptive learning drive cycle will need to be performed.

Make sure your laptop is connected to the internet for that step. Its reaching out to Fords server to download the cal file for those strategies.

The PCM controls the transmission this year, that is why the SSID's need to be written to the PCM to allow for proper control of the solenoids. I would update the PCM to the latest calibration as part of the programming process. This is where FORScan falls short. Updating the software is not part of that software. FORScan is a great alternative but is lacking when the controlling module…
