BCM replacement, TPMS will not complete. dome light blinking
Replace BCM on this F250. got everything set up, still have dome light flashing and cargo light flashing so set up isn't complete. only ting I cannot get ready is the TPMS system. says not configured. have codes for all tire sensors including inside and outside duals which this does not have. SRW truck. BCM was replaced due to inop left front low beam. something happed to the isolation module for the plow and took out BCM initial problem is repaired. looking for some insight on getting through this TPMS system. I am using VCM and IDS on this, so it should have everything I need. CEI lock configured. vehicle starts and runs, also don't really see any menu options for TPMS. did put vehicle in learn mode and it seemed to register all the sensors like normal. tire pressures are set to door spec and what I set the BCM at. thanks for any help.
see final not at bottom! 1. NOTE: Verify the horn operation before starting the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) training procedure. If it does not operate correctly, refer to Section 413-06 Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, then press and release the brake pedal. 2. Cycle the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position 3 times, ending in the RUN position. 3…
That's basically what ive done a few times, DIC says training complete, but still same codes and dic says tire pressure system fault and tire light is on. cannot get though that for some reason. horn operates normal.
Did you run the On-Demand self test on BCM after everything else was done?
This is a very common problem. Are you using IDS and a vcm 2. The blinking lights must remain blinking and will remain blinking until all codes are cleared from the BCM. To clear codes and do not relate to the truck you must use the k o e o test, not continuous memory Clearing of codes procedure. This may require several attempts. You may also have to rerun PMI more than two or three times. When…
When your done with pmi there is a page that basically tells you what steps you need. After tpms relearn you may have to learn remotes if it has that option plus sometimes you may have to do all module scan and erase. You should be good after. As stated above. Tpms on that model is Manual relearn.
If you are getting codes for 6 sensors and you have a 4 wheel truck (srw) there may be a configuration issue. Have you tried running asbuilt function on the BCM?
OK, A couple of things we have learned from doing these. The TPMS is the one always with the code until setup is complete. I suggest forscan.org and remove TPMS at least until you are done setting up. 1. 2 remotes, yes 2 remotes. don't care how many keys. 2. interior lights dim to high to dim 3. not a continuous code scan, On demand code scan. if the horn does not honk it will…
I agree had almost same problem same vehicle being unable to complete program to clear codes...found forscan and it took care of it in 5 minutes...something with fords ids keeping completion from happening
Hey Russ, can you run the forscan with VCMII ?
FORScan runs great with the VCMII
There is a way to setup the VCM2 as J2534. We recently tested this during some R2R testing on a Kia
Sounds like Opus is going to buy Forscan next....I know, "no comment" ;-)
I'm not in charge of mergers and acquisitions...…. LOL I try to be well versed in all things Ford and have used it outside of the office as well. For what it is, mostly free or close to it, it is quite powerful.
I'm the last person anybody would want to try and do something with Windows, but I was thinking I should at least download that, and store it, before it costs a lot of money and somebody here (Maui, not DN) needs it. Now that I have typed that out, I think I may have done that a year ago and can't remember where it is! :-)
Daniel, Have you done a PMI on the module? The U2200 is a common code when the BCM hasn't had software written to the module when installed. What tool are you using to perform programming?
You need to make sure 2 remotes are programmed IF it has power locks. If you only have one or none for that truck you can borrow them from other fords. A 2004 Taurus remote will work. Then rrun self test ON THE BCM ONLY. That’s the last step. Clear codes from there and it will rerun. Fix whatever codes THEN come back
This one has no remotes nor power locks
Then run the self test for BCM only and see what pops up
Hi Daniel, First of all is the module new or used? If new, do you remember the module going through a programming process? It should have gone through a process that says something like "there are multiple memory locations" and the programming takes about 10 minutes. The second part of the process is the As-built. As-Built goes very quickly. It can be done by inhale / exhale, from online…
Downloading IDS 117.03 give that a whirl, now that you mention it I seemed to go through a loop as well with the "as built" BCM is new from ford. I pretty much will not deal with used modules.
I had an issue last week on a BCM for a Focus, went to 117.01 and went through fine
I'm having the same problem, except the truck I'm working on doesn't have TPMS. The BCM apparently thinks it does. I used my AUTEL scan tool to perform the procedure when replacing the BCM. After having the dome light flash anytime the key was on, and also having a code for data being corrupted, I decided to program it using AS BUILD DATA. Still have the same problem. I can't communicate with a…
I have had no luck with autel. It always corrupts my bcm. I end up using ids and I've never looked back. You will need at least fjds and a script and redo pmi. Then you can finish the relearns including parameter reset.
Hi Lamont, You can address this by cloning the BCM from the original. It requires a tool like the VVDIprog. Contact me for the particulars.
Hey guys, thanks for jumping on and helping me out. Tomi, I believe you. I don't do a lot of this type of work, thus I can't see investing in equipment, so I took the truck to the dealer today and had it flashed. Problem solved. Next time I'll know not to trust my Autel for this operation. I do like the tool though.
