Which is on the light side, given that LCM replacement for the previous recall was 0.6(w/ adjustable pedals)

Well, this thread scares me. I was at the dealers with my car to get the mod when I read it. Talked to another patron getting the same thing done and he said the service manager said 1/2 day. Since I am retired I told the service manager he could keep the car 2 days.

I just received a letter from Ford about this fix; it is a hack job if I have ever seen one. There is no way I will allow them to do this to my Marauder. I will run the Dorman piggyback unit I described earlier until it fails, and then I will send my LCM out to fastblacķmerc for repair. 🤠

Good Luck!

Let us know what problems you encounter after the modification.

I have no idea why I've never heard a peep from Ford about this or the previous recall. ? Weird.

Can't wait to get mine back. SO I don't have to keep kicking mine or rapping on it with a screwdriver handle. I picked a good week to send it off. Supposed to rain for days here. Thanks Fastblack 0--=--0

Hokey smoke! Are you certain you want to crawl under the dash to unsplice all those wires?

Are you the original owner? If not the LCM may have been replaced under a previous recall.

Or Ford may have no record that you own the car.

I think you hit on something; although I am the original owner, the LCM failed early on, along with the radio around 2005 and both were replaced back then. I would think tho that LCM would the same as the first so would have been part of the other recall, but maybe they installed a newer one.

I'm not going to worry about it, just glad I'm on the site here and learned about this kludgy workaround so I can avoid it.

Unfortunately Ford replaced the LCM (when they could get them) with one that had zero improvements, so it's a matter of time until that one fails.

Just an FYI... Ford will only do one replacement / fix of the LCM on their dime.

Thanks for the info; can't say I'm surprised at that.

Due to another failed work item I decided to see if the mod was actually done. It was easy to tell.

Sent mine out on Monday, got it back on Saturday, installed on Sunday. Everything works as it should, tucks up nicely, never to be disturbed again.

The car runs better, looks better and gets better fuel economy too!

(The last sentence is embellishment, but an unsolicited testimonial non-the-less)
