What was the preliminary analysis?
The F-150’s display, managed by the Accent Protocol Interface Module (APIM), threw error code TSB 22-2226. That required the technician to offer an replace to the module, however to not exchange it. From our adviser:
“I’ve seen this occur a number of instances now, on F-150s, Fusions and Explorers. One buyer has been right here 3 times to get this identical reboot. That is as a result of the APIM module has to fail in a particular method earlier than Ford will guarantee its substitute.”
Mike Schmidt, senior supervisor of auto testing operations, left the dealership and put the truck in reverse solely to uncover the cameras weren’t working. He referred to as the adviser and came upon the F-150 had certainly failed the mandatory check routine and a brand new APIM was on order. The dangerous information? It was on again order.
