On that note, did we decide the lights were caused by the difference in vin's between the modules?

Well that's what I've concluded, anyway. I think I am the only guy on here who has done 2 of these AND gotten the lights to go out in both.

I tend to agree. I installed ford 500 modules, but from different cars. Lights are still on. I may look into getting the stuff to actually let me reflash these.

that's if I keep the car.....transmission shifts great, but has this weird clunk when downshifting from 6th to 4th, mostly on the highway. I'm probably going to swap out valve bodies, maybe just try a different solenoid.

Has anyone done this freestyle trans swap from cvt to 6 speed in metro Detroit area? Wondering if anyone has price to have this done. I have 2005 with 192k miles that cvt trans just died . like to possibly get the 6 speed put in if possible. Let me know if anyone would be interest or know someone that may want to quote doing the work.

Anyone out there willing to do a trans swap for me. I have (2) Freestyle's that trans just died.

If can give a cost for the swap. I'm in Metro Detroit Michigan.

Thanks, Dan

Ive put a few thousand miles on the engine/transmission combo. Took it on a trip last week. Seems pretty solid. In theory, should be very reliable. This drivetrain only had 50k. Had a trans with that weird recall. I just reused my 06 valvebody. A little disconcerting, but seems ok.
