Summary

Should a customer express concern about poor driveability and high fuel consumption, the probable cause is the calibration of the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).

For markets where FordEtis IDS is used, connect FordEtis IDS and select the appropriate symptoms from the concern descriptions above. Follow the FordEtis IDS instructions to rectify this concern and send any related diagnostic feedback session files. Failure to follow these instructions will affect any associated warranty claim submission.

For markets where FordEtis IDS is not available, rectify this concern by following the attached service repair instruction.

• NOTE: Use IDS 69.03 DVD or a later version.

• NOTE: Before commencing module configuration or programming, connect the vehicle battery to a suitable external power supply in order to maintain a constant battery voltage throughout the procedure. For detailed information refer to TSB 62/2007.

To rectify this concern, a revised calibration for the TCM and the PCM must be installed.

Labor Times published in this TSB are available from 18.10.2010 onwards. Please refresh your Labor Master file at that day to receive the new data in your Dealer Management System. Please contact your internal system administrator.
