Hi
Today my car got its first 12500 miles service. I asked them if they could do a software update as well and they said no problem. But when I collected my car they said there is no newer software available for my car.
I have checked on Ford Etis website and there are few software upgrades available for my car.
So, did I get a lazy mechanic to service my car or is Etis wrong ??
I have ROM version 1304 installed on my car at the moment.

See attached screenshot.

Welcome to the club - I would say that it depends what firmware he was looking at? PCM, Instrument Cluster, ECU or radio...

 

Give them a call and find out what they refer to?

bit of free advice. DONT get your injector calibration updated. Ford are now saying a lot of Mondeo's are having problems with injectors after updating calibration files.even though your car is low mileage & I wouldnt think it would make a difference anyway. All 4 of my injectors failed not long after I had mines updated(matter of weeks)!

when you say etis thats just the standard menu mate. Its in case a new module etc has to be fitted/calibrated.

actually I'd go so far as to say get nothing updated at all. If its working ok,leave it alone mate.upto you though,but my car was running A-ok then I wondered if a calibration would help fuel economy. It certainly didnt help my economy lol. even before I made the appointment,I was kinda warned about some of the problems Ford were having regarding injector calibration-updates,but I thought "Nah that wont happen to me".

Famous last words eh

Call them up and ask what they have recorded as the version of software seen on the car. Then point them to this resource. Alternatively, call another dealer, tell them you want to bring your car in for an update. Give them the version numbers and see if they confirm they are the next for your car.

Thanks. I sent you a PM with the VIN number.

I see updates in Etis after entering your reg. number go to "vehicle software" in the top menu. See attachment from the first post as well.

haha they're 'never wrong'.thats the thing no-one knows until his car is plugged in & showing any updates done. since his is a euro5 2012 i think,i wouldnt be surprised if there isnt any just now,& if there is,it'll be a b*****it optional update that'll make no difference whatsoever(ie ABS)

someone in Fords ears just pricked up at the sound of his £70 rustling lol

Sorry, I had a busy week and didn't have time to ask. It could well be as Stooge75 suggested in his post above. I will update as soon as I know more.

Hello All,

 

I've question, is it possible to upgrade software in Mondeo from 2004? it's EURO 4 Stage Emissions.

 

Thanks

Yes but not a good idea. Why would you want to? On some euro4's you can run into problems after the update re injectors etc
Your main dealer will probably tell you this also
