This article is a PCMtuner guide on Ford SID208. Same operation for Ford SID209, select the corresponding module during operation.
Step 1. Identification
Identify ECU via OBD with ECU in car, or on bench with OBD breakout.
Select Module 07 – Ford SID208, click “Identification”.
Note these ECU details including VIN, SW Version, etc. if needed.
We can get VR files or damos for free by these details.
Step 2. Read Password
Select Password option on Module 53.
Infineon Tricore BSL>>Password>>Ford SID208
Step 3. Save Password
Wait for password reading.
Save it as a file. (Default file name will be serial number, which are also on ECU cover)
Also, program will also display ECU status like if signature verification is enabled.
If signature verification is disabled, we can read/write this ECU as regular SID208/SID209; If not, go to Step 4.
Step 4. BSL Unlock
Open ECU, solder two 1kΩ resistors:
Connect 1kΩ resistors to two via points, connect the end of the resistors to the two upper pads.
Step 5. Read ECU
Select Module 53 – TC1797 Micro, click “Read”.
Load password file we just got.
Program starts to read ECU micro data, which may take around 2-3 minutes.
Save data file.
Repeat above steps for EEPROM data.
Select Module 53 – TC1797 EEPROM.
Then, Identification>>Read>>Load Password File>>Read and save EEPROM file
Now we can write EEPROM or Micro data back to ECU,
Or remove resistors, restore module, and write normally.
1)When writing file, PCMflash will not correct checksum on this ECU, please manually checksum with things like winOLS.
2)Do Not tick “Verify/Fix CRC” before writing.
Alright, that’s how to handle Ford SID208 SID209 by PCMtuner ECU Programmer.
