Cruise control module programming
hello, I have this 15 ford explorer that was passed to me from another tech this vehicle had some minor damage to the front bumper which also damaged the cruise control module and connector. The cruise control module was replaced with an aftermarket unit and the connector and wiring were repaired. My coworker was unsuccessful in the programming module so the vehicle was given to me I then performed a visual inspection and made sure the wiring was correct by looking at the wiring diagram I verified power and ground to the module both circuits support current flow I hooked up the scope to CAN bus voltage and signals are good. I made an attempt to program the cruise control module but was unsuccessful I suspected that my coworker maybe had a failure with programming so I requested another module I installed another aftermarket module with the same exact results I then suspected a problem with these aftermarket modules and requested an OEM from ford I installed the OE module and I am still unsuccessful in programming the module sets DTC's u2100 and u0300 stored and current in the cruise control module using the IDS the service tool successfully obtains the part numbers from As-Built but does not consider the part numbers as being valid for the vehicle I am using the latest IDS 126.05. I also updated the Pcm to the current calibration any suggestions?
We use IDS for Mazdas which is Fordstuff. I would usually try running a network test to see if module is communicating. If it fails then you will have to look further on the wiring of the module.
Thank you yes I performed the live network test using the ids function the module is green while and has zero counts.
Joe, Is the OEM module new or used? Many Ford modules cannot be used unless you use the Forescan software to adapt it to the vehicle.
Thank you this is a new module directly from the ford dealer
are you running pmi? This should just be as built then straighten module vertical test drive and done
yes I've ram the PMI when the tool obtains the as built data for programming module I hit the tick but I dont see the usual blue loading bar it just kicks back to the tool box.
The programming on this module is pretty straight forward, Ids does the pmi first and then you have to do the dynamic part by having ids hooked to the truck while driving it for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Thank you while programming the module is there a blue loading bar? i have no loading bar after pressing tick mark it instantly kicks me back to the PMI screen also I cannot erase DTC u300 from the cruise control module .
Hi Joe, This is kind of a different slant which you maybe already covered. Was this vehicle originally equipped with Adaptive cruise? Could that be checked with a build sheet somewhere? Does the cruise control actually function as is without that module programmed? I dont know if you still have the original module… Could you somehow temporarily get it to communicate then start the PMI using that…
Can I ask what was the part number on the box from the dealer? I checked VBOM, and the original engineering part number should have been a DG1T-9G768-BB, and the superseded service part should be DG1Z-9E731-G. Just curious.
Thanks, that confirms it is the correct module. I would also double check PCM part number. When I see those errors, there is usually a wrong module on the network.
Hello Joe, You mentioned minor bumper damage… Did you verify the connector replacement/repairs? Does this have ADAS and a forward-looking camera with radar/LIDAR? If any sensors are missing, disconnected or damaged, this will likely lock out any cruise control function and even possible programming. Make sure to run codes on all modules and if possible, get a topography report to verify any…
