Ford van must relearn parameters

Some Ford E-Series vehicles equipped with the 4.6L or 5.4L engine may exhibit a MIL on with DTC P0130 (oxygen sensor circuit Bank 1, Sensor 1) and P0150 (oxygen sensor circuit Bank 2, Sensor 1).

  1. Retrieve all DTCs in the PCM. If both P0130 and P0150 are present, proceed to Step 2. If not, follow normal workshop manual powertrain control/emissions diagnostics.
  2. Reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration using IDS release 73.02 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2011.5 DVD. Calibration files may be obtained at

Advise the customer that this vehicle is equipped with an adaptive transmission shift strategy which allows the vehicle’s computer to learn the transmission’s unique parameters and improve shift quality. When the adaptive strategy is reset, the computer will begin a re-learning process, which may result in firmer-than-normal upshifts and downshifts for several days.
