Question about 2006 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

Stalling I have two 2006 crown vic, both use the same number part ECM and on one all 3 ECM's work, however 2 mechanics have told me that the ECM is bad on the other one, plus there doesn't seem to be a security programing problem. On one of the vic's it stalls, cuts out, while driving over 35 mph when the accelerator is pressed down?

    the car starts every time but if I'm going 30 mph and step on the gas it stalls out, the little wrencj light turns on and the car cuts off. If I put it back in park it won't start but if I turn the key off and turn it back on it starts again. Like I said before the ECM works on my other 2006 crown vic.

Testimonial: "However my car (2006 crown vic) is at the mechanic and he is telling me that the ECU (computer brain) probably has to be programed. Maybe I don't understand why this could be the problem for its stalling and cutting out when pressing the accelerator up over 35 mph when I've plugged 2 different ECU's in and the symptom remains the same but when I plug the same 2 ECU's into my other 2006 crown vic it runs properly without being programed. Both ECU's are identical in part number and I disconnected the negative terminal before plugging the ECU's in. So I believe I'm waiting for the mechanic to come to the same conclusion. Then he can start looking at different sensors in the throttle body and maybe the MAF sensor or even the O2 sensors. I'll give update when the mechanic gets back to me, what do you think?"

    I think first your mechanic need to drive the car with scanner and read the MAF,O2/1.O2/2sensors.key on engine off depress throttle very and read the graphic for dead spot.that's the easy part. Second connect fuel gauge and read the pressure engine off,engine running and driving down the road.restricted cat will hold the engine power and some times will kill.I don't think programming is your problem because the car starts and drive . Security system will kill fuel and ignition in 2 sec. after start.very common problem with ford computer is the plug. if you push to hart before the pins are lineup together will brake the locks and wire will come out. Inspect the female side for pins pusht out of place

SOURCE: vam stalling

there are too many reasons...

it could be fuel pump,, it could be ignition coil overheating, it could be the computer itself...

you need two things for the engine to run,

1 is gas
2nd is ignition,,

with these two misfiring or your loosing one of them, it will stall...

i hope i was able to give you some thoughts....

SOURCE: Stalls at low speed when in cruise control

You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!

low fuel pressure can be caused by fuel pump or pressure regulator. The regulator is on the upper side of the engine and looks like picture below. Check the vacuum hose all the way to see if it has a loose or broken connection. The regulator is much easier to replace that the pump, so I always recommend one replace the regulator before the pump. If you know someone that can check the fuel pressure before the regulator, you can actually determine which part is bad.

I put a 2006 mercury motor and transmission in a 2003 crown Vic rite it runs good but, it change 1 gear and after that my speed thermometer jumps from 50 to 130 and makes my car shut down

no idea what a speed thermometer is and what it does in the vehicle
all well and good with what you have done but the ECM for each vehicle will be different and so will be the TCM
the change is not just mechanical but will require a lot of electronic changes as there are too many years development between the transmissions

This is what I did on my 99 Grand Marquis. Maybe it will work for you.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 3 seconds, with the 4th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds, press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cylcle to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF.

Where is theEMC on a 87 ltd 302 fi crown vic and what happens when it goes bad?

The ECM is located under the dashboard.
Try this before you replace the ECM change the pick up coil in the distributor the symptoms you are having usually happens when the pick up coil get hot and is defective. Here's how disconnect the battery, remove the distributor cap and you will see a disc like object below the rotor. It may have two or three screws holding it in place remove them and then remove the pick up cool. They start at $24.99

Yes. You need the ecu that came with that engine. Did you switch intakes? The f 150 4.6 has a taller intake and I believe the stroke is different. I would switch the throttle position sensor too.
