Hey all ... two things:

 

First ...

a) If your airbag light is NOT on, you should get your RCM reprogrammed. (14E02)

b) If your airbag light IS on, they will replace the RCM (14S21), which already has the new programming so you wont need 14E02.

 

And a question ... for anyone who's had their RCM replaced, what happens to your (Hybrid) lifetime fuel economy?!  How about Trip A or Trip B ... I'm using Trip B to keep track of my fuel economy annually, and resetting only at one year anniversaries.

 

Thanks!

How does reprogramming the RCM fix the electrical short issue these modules are experiencing?  That is what the recall is about.  If all they needed to do is reprogram the module, that is what the recall letter would have stated... not replacement.  14E02 refers to reprogramming the PCM, not the RCM.  Two completely different issues... Emissions (14E02) and Air Bag (14S21). 

 

Edit:  Fixed typo for 14E02.  :)

My bad ...

 

  • 14S04 is not necessary if you have 14S21 completed first

 

Sorry for the confusion. 

 

I'd still like to know if anyone is aware of what happens to lifetime FE or Trip computers when this is done ... thanks!

I answered my own question:  My LFE and trip computers were untouched, though I think I lost my lifetime Regen miles.

What did you have done? 14E02 (not the subject of this thread) causes the Lifetime Brake Score & Regen Miles to be reset. 14S21 is the replacement of the RCM. Right now there are not many parts so few owners are getting this part replaced.

I had 14S21 done, and while my car was at the dealership, they performed 14E02 also.

Well isn't this timely!  The 14S21 was announced in late Sep 2014, I have seen zero issues until this morning when the airbag light came on and stayed on, so I ran a VHR with results shown below.

 

Very timely coincidence since I just happen to already have an appt for tomorrow to get it done, along with the 15E03 PCM update and to check out the good old 'ping-pong' sound...

14S21 and 15E03 all done, and the "ping-pong" sound turned out to not be the thrust washer thing, needed to replace the "engine support insulator" which is part # DG9Z-6038-G ($88.00 on fordparts.com) which surprsingly needed replacement but all is now nice and quiet again.  I say surprisingly as I try to be very smooth with my driving and always avoid hammering the gas or brakes, but hey parts go bad now and then.  So at least I can now say I've made my first extended warranty claim, with 64k miles...

Hi Machoman1337,

If you need any help at all, let me know; I can get a customer service manager in the mix. He will make sure your car is well taken care of, and in a timely manner. 

 

Thanks,

 

Mathieu

Thanks Mathieu. I get my servicing done at Richport Ford in British Columbia and I'd just like to know the first possible date that I can secure a 15S16 fix :)
