👍🏼 . 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?

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.

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.

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.
