2008 Ford Taurus X Limited 3.5L (W) 6-spd (6F50)—1FMDK03WX8GA01845

hi everyone. the reason i put 2008 and 2009 for the years, is because i have run into some problems unique to the edge/flex platform when programming ford dealer supplied pcms. these pcms go through the whole process then completes "BUT" says did not accept all data. then wants to re attempt to program saying to check data link power or power to the pcm, and that the pcm does not have a vin number..... please perform pmi. and when i try to perform the pmi it goes nowhere. now second, when i attempt to do it again not turning the key on, it wants to pull the "incomplete" session back into play. now when i go into "previous sessions" on the screen, i can delete the session but it only will put the session in the deleted file. which does no good because it will pick it back up when trying to program the pcm with key on or no key on. any tips on removing the sessions in fjds? and has anyone run into programming problems like this on these fords. i have absolutely no problems with any other fords. any attempt wants to pick the session back up with the same results. any help would be appreciated. thank you steve

If you have 2 keys, you can do a little trick by leaving the key off while FJDS attempts to ID the vehicle. After the 3rd attempt you can manually input info relevant to the vehicle/pcm. I’ve had to do that in several cases and worked fine, but not 100% foolproof. Scannerdanner recently had an issue just as you described on an Edge, multiple failed programming attempts. Got a different

Usually when I have received this message it is do to the incorrect part being installed. Ford is horrible about splitting production dates, and it is not uncommon to receive the wrong part due to missed sub notes from the parts department.

This might be a issue with the interface you are using. I do agree with Daryll you may be able to manually enter the vin then program. If you have access to a vcm it might be worth going that route

Hi Steve, Not sure of your whole process but Ford modules program much better when you intake data from the original and exhale into the new module. Maybe try reading the old one then swapping to the replacement. This is assuming that the original PCM will still communicate. -Mike

I have seen this issue with … Taurus, Sable, Edge, MKX etc. the 3.5 engine that melts coils. I have been able to work around this with the Inhale from original module everytime. If you are worried about damaging the replacement coils, pull the coil fuse form the underhood fuse box before reinstalling the original PCM. I had similar issues with Focus PCM's with axle ratio not being

Hi Chris. Thank you for your response. I am running Windows 7. Tried locating the tire sessions through the c drive. After moving through the program files to the fjds , no access to any sessions. Also do not have a hidden file tab on top of page. I would have to believe that there would be a folder for these files.

Hi Chris, I went through my control panel under folder options ,advanced settings and found the hidden file option. Then went back to your instructions. I did find the sessions. I will return to the vehicle tomorrow and will update how it went.

Each version of windows is a little different, good effort finding it.

Ok, got the Ford programmed. The key to getting it done was being able to delete the prior session where repeated attempts wanted to resume the failed "incomplete" session. Thank you Chris for the guidance in deleting sessions. I was then able to copy and paste.
