2007 Ford freestyle awd transmission swap

Post by itsmeinetx » Tue May 14, 2019 8:36 pm

I have a 2007 Freestyle awd and it has stopped shifting properly so I found a used freestyle awd transmission, now my mechanic tells me he think that the tcm has to be reprogrammed for the transmission to work, and they guy selling the used one is telling me it doesn't so can someone please clear thus up for me.

The trans will work without it, but your ABS and TC will not work unless the trans, ECU and ABS module all agree on VIN.

If you can, get the ECU and the ABS module (only the electrical part, no need to open the hydraulic lines) from the donor and put them on your car. That is much easier than finding someone to flash your trans controller.
