How did you determine the pcm was bad? Expensive guess.

The dealer can program it for you if it is the issue

what was the code?

Wasnt a guess we hook up our bidirectional scan tool got the code diagnostic it using alldata procedures did some testing and after back back checking everything else glow plug, fuses relays, Fuel module, injectors, high pressure oil pump, etc we can to that conclusion and in the caribbean there no ford dealer on the island I already have a vcm but could get it reprogram they said because its diesel and the vcm is not for pickup. Was wondering if there's a vcm just for diesel or some other tool I can buy to do it?

Yes, just for diesel. The numbers must be the same or it will not work.

The numbers on the pump. You may need to remove the pump to see the numbers.

Once you have the numbers, then you can persue the issue with e bay or amazon.

Ok thanks so once I get the number I use this to get a vcm just for diesel to reprogram the new pcm is that correct? And number of the high oil pressure pump? Those numbers?
