FJDS Warning !
Warning the recent FJDS version is not working properly . Avoid it . Do not update FJDS.
What version? I just updated mine monday and installed rack in a 2019 ford and performed pmi with no problems.
116.01 and 116.04 is working fine anything past these . I updated yesterday if my memory serves me .
👍🏼 . It took 4 hours to find the problem . you can roll back software to fix the concern .
I sometimes save software instead of direct download. If not where would you find legacy fjds software?
I had to contact Ford tech line for the previous software . …
Specifically FJDS will not pull the files from the ford server on 116.05, I was able to download manually from motorcraftservice.com/diagnostic/Sup… This worked for one vehicle but not for a 6.0 PCM PMI, FJDS would not list the TCM files separately so I could not down load them manually.
I rolled back software. back to … . Then it worked as usual no problem .
Seems to be an ongoing pattern for FJDS. I'm not sure IDS had the issue with this. Most importantly Download the updates and hold the most current and the last full version.
Agreed , I was just wanted to save someone the headache if possible .
We usually keep the .01 version running and saved. We will try the .01 first and only add the update once we know it is stable or needed. Keep the .01 in a file or even running on another computer.
I think I am going to adopt your idea so in the future I’m not running around Trying to explain to my boss that Ford screwed up their own software hahaah
