SOURCE: Flex Fuel sensor Truoble Code

If your flex fuel sensor is bad there is a product on the market that is a much better alternative compared to purchasing a new sensor for over $600 or even a used one for typically around $300. The product is called a Flex Fuel Sensor Replicator made by T&S Electronics and can be purchased off their website The cost of the Replicator is $150 and it is very simple to install. In fact, your old flex fuel sensor stays in place so you don't have to mess with your fuel line. The wiring from the original flex fuel sensor is hooked up to the Replicator which sends an electronic signal to your engine control unit that "replicates" the signal the ECU would get from the original FFS when you are burning standard unleaded gasoline containing up to 10% ethenol.

The only limitation present with the Replicator installed is that you can no longer burn E85 or other alternate fuels (no big deal for most people). And, as an advantage you should see a 1-2 mpg improvement with the Replicator installed.

SOURCE: I am having two issues

P0302 code is a mifire for cyl #2, Check the ignition coil for the number 2 cylinder.
P0715 Turbine Shaft Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction - With Automatic Transmission
Possible Causes Setting Conditions
* TSS connector is damaged (check pins for damage, and for moisture)
* TSS signal circuit is open, shorted to ground or shorted to voltage
* TSS has failed
* PCM (Powertrain Control Module) has failed

To test the ignition coil for the P0302 code
Turn the ignition OFF
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the wiring harness from the ignition coil.
Check for dirt, corrosion or damage on the terminals and repair as necessary. Measure coil primary resistance between ignition coil pin 4 (B+) and pins 1 (coil 2), 2 (coil 3) and 3 (coil 1)Resistance should be 0.3-1.0 ohms. If resistance is out of specifications, replace the coil pack. If resistance is within specifications, proceed to secondary windings testing.

It sounds like you are losing your Keep Alvie Memory when you turn the key off. There should always be power to the PCM.

OBD Inspection Maintenance (IM) Readiness indicators show whether all of the OBD monitors have been completed since the last time KAM or the PCM DTC(s) have been cleared. Ford also stores a P1000 DTC to indicate that some monitors have not completed. In some states, it may be necessary to perform an OBD check in order to renew a vehicle registration. The IM Readiness indicators must show that all monitors have been completed prior to the OBD check.
PCM Locations

  • Focus - passenger side behind kick panel.
Keep Alive Random Access Memory (RAM) The PCM stores information in Keep Alive RAM (a memory integrated circuit chip) about vehicle operating conditions, and then uses this information to compensate for component variability. Keep Alive RAM remains powered when the ignition switch is off so that this information is not lost.
I can see pins 71 & 97 at the PCM supply battery power to the PCM. There may be another pin that supplies power at all times but I can't find it right now. You need to find the pin that is powered to the PCM with the key off, and make sure it's got power with the key off.

2000 Ford Mustang- Just had new tires, brakes ,tuneup and gas cap. Service engine light keeps going on.. never has before. Any ideas?

this light has NOTHING TO DO WITH MAINTAINENCE, what it means is that a malfunction has occurred in the electronic fuel injection system or the engines electronic emission control system, there are well over 200 such faults that trun this light on,when the light is turned on a fault code is set in the memory of the computer that controls the system, to find out what this code may be you must have a shop test the system, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, you may also have it tested by any Kragen or Autozone Parts store for free in most area's. This willgive u a code but not any info oon how to fix the problem that turned on the check engine light, for that u need a qualified technician

This is the biggest flaw in emissions testing. It takes 4 tanks of fuel and 1000 miles of wasteful driving to reset the computer on the FORD TAURUS (I've got a 2000). So much for pollution control!

Runs rough on startup

Run in to autozone, pep boys, or other major autoparts store & they will usually do a free code scan for you. Once you know code, easier & better/cheaper to fix, than guessing & replacing parts that are fine.
