fuse 40, check traction control, transmission data error

Post by frustrateddad06 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 1:28 pm

Hey guys, I'm really hoping someone can at least point me in the direction of a possible fix for this issue. Here we go:
My 06 ford freestyle keeps blowing fuse 40 upon turning the key to try to start the car. It shows check traction control and the traction control light is on. It started while driving the traction control light came on and the car went into limp mode. I was pulling out of a parking lot with a slight bump when it happened. No rain or anything to trigger needing traction control. The only way to get the car to start into limp mode at that is to jump the starter. It is throwing 21 different codes. I've seen one other post with this exact same issue from a few years ago but it was never answered. I hope someone can help. If you guys/gals need anymore info please ask and I will do my best to answer. Thank you for your time.

Let's look at the scheme. Your problem is hidden in one of six modules.

Try disconnecting one by one and start engine:
-a/c clutch relay

connectors:
-egr valve
-vapor management valve
-oxygen sensors
-evap canister vent control solenoid
-cvt.
Inspect the wires (wiring harnesses) for a short circuit. I would also check if there are no replacements for high current fuses in SmartJB (why does the main fuse blow, and not the secondary ones?).
Let's hope that cvt is OK, because other modules are easy to fix.

Thank you, I will check all of those out and let you know. Do you think that a bad ground could possibly cause this as well? If so, would you possibly have a diagram of the ground locations so that I can be sure that I check them all. Thank you again for your response.

I think, problem is in EGR valve. But I am not mechanik.
I downloaded the schemes from open sources to my cloud https://yadi.sk/d/bVCqWMW250XdgQ

ok thank you. If I disconnect the egr valve will that help me know if that is the problem or will I still have issues from the ecu looking for the egr valve and not finding it?

it was the egr valve, disconnected it car started right up and didnt blow the fuse. Only thing is that its still showing the traction control light maybe once i replace the egr and reconnect that will go away. Thank you so much for your assistance
