Only just installed the latest version last night of elmconfig, but unlike last time it now reads From my engine ECU so I managed to update the pcm firmware from ANC to ANE, no idea what changes are but ANE says something about Sticky Throttle Pedal QSF lol again no idea what that is, but may fix a problem I've experienced on longer journeys where the throttle pedal becomes unresponsive.

As far as I know mileage correction down is something IDS can't do, nor can it activate auto locking... It used to be able to do the latter but ford removed it when people started asking their dealer to active it.... Something to do with it not unlocking the doors or not reliably unlocking doors... One of the 2 in the event of an accident. So ford left it switched off to cover themselves.

It's probable yep that they was reworked in terms of software.

Only reason I knew was because, a few years back now, a car infront run over a roadsign... It flicked it up and it smashed into passenger corner of front bumper which completely smashed up the plastic ECU casing...ECu in fact fell onto the road at 70mph and got dragged along until I could stop where I had to tie it up again.

But price tag of a grand put me off, but has been operating fine to date barring new engine loom I had to fit and new plastic casing.

But when I had it apart, obviously noticed it had a sticker over it and always questioned why, but assumed it must of been done by ford direct centre... But what you say about supplier doing it makes more sense.

I tried to find a replacement sid803a 2nd hand but didn't have any luck from a ford car, found one from peugeot with same engine as an sid803a but couldn't prove the insides were the same or that it would be possible to flash it with ford calibration. So stuck with one that's in there now.

Does anybody know why I'm getting the error frw.dat error when I try to even just read the PCM on the intial screen which shows hardware and software versions etc?

Probably the latter, wouldn't of been the dealer as it had security bolts on the cover.

I assumed it www the ford direct centre. But could of been the factory, maybe 7M5T was for pre facelift cars without Keyfree, and 8M5T is for facelift cars and as my car is a mid 2008 car it could of been old stock from the 2.1 models which was pre facelift with facelift electrics (2007).

Just tried new software and was going to do an update but keep getting frw.dat error when I read from pcm.
