These are the things you must know when programming the ECU of your Ford Ranger.

Engine Control Module: Service and Repair

Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Removal
  1. Retrieve the module configuration. Carry out the module configuration
     retrieval steps of the Programmable Module Installation procedure.  See:
     Information Bus/Testing and Inspection/Programming and Relearning
  2. Remove the PCM wiring harness retainer nut.
  3. Remove the ground wire stud bolt.
  4. Disconnect the 3 PCM electrical connectors.
  5. Remove the 2 nuts and the PCM.

Installation
  1. Install the PCM and the 2 nuts.
     –  Tighten to 10 Nm (89 lb-in).
  2. Connect the 3 PCM electrical connectors.
  3. Position the ground wire terminals and install the stud bolt.
     –  Tighten to 10 Nm (89 lb-in).
  4. Install the PCM wiring harness retainer nut.
     –  Tighten to 10 Nm (89 lb-in).
  5. NOTE: If a new PCM is installed, the parameters must be reset in both the PCM
     and the instrument cluster module or the vehicle will experience a Passive
     Anti-Theft System (PATS) no-start. This will occur even if the vehicle is not
     equipped with PATS. PATS vehicles and non-PATS vehicles have parameters in
     the instrument cluster module and the PCM and they both must be reset
     whenever a new PCM is installed. For additional information on PATS, refer to
     Antitheft and Alarm Systems.
     Restore the module configurations for the instrument cluster module and the
     PCM. Carry out the module configuration restore steps of the Programmable
     Module Installation procedure. 

Programming and Relearning
PROGRAMMABLE MODULE INSTALLATION

Programmable Module Installation (PMI) Using The Integrated Diagnostic System
(IDS) When The Original Module Is Available
  NOTE:  Following module installation, some modules require a separate learning
  procedure be carried out. For instructions, refer to the specific module removal
  and installation procedures.

  1. Connect the IDS and identify the vehicle as normal.
  2. From the Toolbox icon, select Module Programming and press the check mark.
  3. Select Programmable Module Installation.
  4. Select the module that is being replaced.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions, turn the ignition key to the OFF position,
     and press the check mark.
  6. Install the new module and press the check mark.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions, turn the ignition key to the ON position,
     and press the check mark.
  8. The IDS downloads the data into the new module and displays Module
     Configuration Complete.
  9. Test module for correct operation.

Programmable Module Installation (PMI) Using The Integrated Diagnostic System
(IDS) When The Original Module Is Not Available
  NOTE:  Following module installation, some modules require a separate learning
  procedure be carried out. For adaptive learning and calibration instructions,
  refer to the specific module removal and installation procedures.
  1. Install the new module.
  2. Connect the IDS and identify the vehicle as normal.
  3. From the Toolbox icon, select Module Programming and press the check mark.
  4. Select Programmable Module Installation.
  5. Select the module that was replaced.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions, turn the ignition key to the OFF position,
     and press the check mark.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions, turn the ignition key to the ON position,
     and press the check mark.
  8. If the data is not available, the IDS displays a screen stating to contact
     the As-Built Data Center. Retrieve the data from the technician service
     publication website at this time and press the check mark.
  9. Enter the module data and press the check mark.
 10. The IDS downloads the data into the new module and displays Module
     Configuration Complete.
 11. Test module for correct operation.
