It looks like at least one connector will need replaced on the harness and possibly two.

It might be a trip to a scrap yard to salvage an old harness and then splice the connectors on.

That's good news.

You should also be able to use FORScan to automatically download the "AsBuilt" BCM file for your car direct from the Ford servers. So if your saved file is corrupt due to the damage, then all is not lost.

Yes it did download the "AsBuilt" as I checked after to make sure before I began fiddling

That is possible but ......... if you use your original BCM files then the keys should be already coded in.

If the keys do need coded in, then all vehicles  2013 onwards can only be coded by a Ford main dealer.

Yes it should be possible to use the licensed version of FORScan to programme the replacement.

Make sure the part number of the replacement is an exact match. The revision letter must be the same or higher than the original.

So I have the part number, which is DV6T-14A073-DL so do I need an exact match to this? 

when you say the revision letter must be the same or higher than the original which letter do you mean...sorry

Normally I'd say the "L" but on your BCM to be honest I'm not sure.

Dave @DaveT70 is usually good on these revision letter issues, perhaps he can help.

I've been searching for a good few hours, I can't find an exact match, but ones ending in K, H, M

 

Hopefully @DaveT70 can share some wisdom with us to see what I can do.

Thanks so much @unofix your help up to yet has been amazing!

That would suggest that it is the last letter which is the revision on your BCM. Based on that the only one you can use is 'M'

That's what I thought too, so fingers crossed I can get the M and do it

Is there any specific splice connectors that you reccommend?
