Programming Ford electronic control units (ECUs) is pretty straightforward and simple compared to many other OEMs. However, Ford does do one thing differently than most other OEMs. The normal Ford programming procedure has you “inhale” (read and store) the As Built data from the old ECU to the scan tool so that these As Built vehicle specific production and calibration details can then be transferred to a new, remanufactured or salvaged ECU you are installing.
A complication arises when you are attempting to replace an ECU that is dead or not communicating with the scan tool or programming device. In this instance, you are going to have to use a different method of telling the replacement ECU what the needed As Built data information should be. The Ford recommended
