Hi
the main problem was there is no self becouse the programming of pcm was clear, so I need for the code of programming to pcm.
The serial number of pcm is 98rz12a650ALE
or 98BB12A650ALE ( its the same )
thanks for help.

You can not clear the PCM so its not functional
when you disconnect the battery you are clearing the codes but PCM will retain all programming software
and you need to hook it up to a computer and need software from ford to reprogram it
it the PCM was not changed than all car info should be in it
again what is the issue that happening making you think that the PCM need to be reprogrammed
does the engine crank?
Have you check the security system?
Do you have security light on when trying to start

Connect New Generation Star (NGS) tester to Data Link Connector (DLC). Insert unprogrammed key in ignition and turn to RUN position. Wait for theft warning indicator to go out (about 2 seconds), then flash rapidly. Select PATS module on NGS.
Select IGNITION KEY - CODE ERASE FUNCTION test (press TRIGGER twice). TEST IN PROGRESS will be displayed on screen. After 8 minutes, TEST COMPLETE will be displayed on screen. All keys are now erased. Turn key off, then to RUN position. Wait for theft warning indicator to go out (about 2 seconds). PATS key is now programmed. To program additional keys, see KEY PROGRAMMING - SPARE KEY.
