2006 ford Five Hundred throttle body relearn procedure

I am about to replace the throttle body on my 500, and the literature mentions a 'relearn' procedure that should be done after replacing it. Does anyone know what the relearn process is? I have only been able to find vague non specific references in my web search so far.

The technical service bulletin about this issue says that the software is glitched and that after cleaning the throttle body, the Power Train Module (PCM) needs reprogramming with Ford's new software. I'm not sure if any other shops have access to the Ford software, so I think you may have to take it to your dealership. The learning that the other answers talk about are just general resets.

    The dealer flashed the new program last year, and cleaned the throttle body. We got a little more than a year out of it

    Are the new throttle bodies different and non-glitchy, or is it going to do the same thing down the road? I guess I'd have to wait awhile to find out from you, huh? lol So, have you had any experience with your instrument cluster yet?

    We'll see I guess. Frankly, I am probably going to replace the car sometime next year anyway

Disconnect the negative battery connection overnight, reconnect and drive normally. It should relearn by itself.

Look in your manual at battery replacement. It will tell you the procedure to follow after replacement. The first time I replaced a battery and did not know about this procedure the car ran like #%*^! It wanted to stall, run rough etc. This procedure is done right in your driveway.

You'll need the electrical wiring diagram for that. You can also buy a universal harness where you bought your sterio with the adapter kit.

Burn the lowest octane that you can, based on the specs. Ford has found when people run premium fuel, starting was delayed.

It is actually the lowest octane that has the most explosive power. Higher octane burns SLOWER.

Engine light came on. Auto parts free diagnosis says its the throttle sticking. I clean it, buy a new sensor, and do the relearn procedure.


The throttle body bore must be spotless. It tends to build carbon at the chamber where the throttle plate touches at the fully closed position. After you solve that cleaning issue, use Lucas additive or Mercury Marine (yes, that one) Quickleen twice a year. Presto, no reoccuring issues. Be thorough !

I suggest check the easy things first. Vacuum lines, could cause a lean condition, fuel filter restricting the fuel flow lean condition. Carefully clean throttle body with proper cleaner. I'm a shade tree mechanic but these simple things work sometimes. You didn't mention if you have the cvt trans. If you do and you are going 75 80 on the highway coming to a hill will cause it to race that high. Then when the hill is crested it will slow down, I don't like it either but it is the nature of the beast. I often cancel the cruise on big hills on the highway so it doesn't do that.

The following diagnostic codes P2104, P2111, and P2112 the engine failure mode appears car wont move turn it off and on again and its fine with just the check engine light Happens several timesaday now


all the codes point to throttle body. clean throttle body, especially around throttle plate. check for loose wires, if problems persist. replace throttle body. p2104 is tac system forced idle, p2111 is tac system stuck open, p2112 is tac system stuck closed. clean throttle body good, and see if this fixes it. then go from there. have a good day !!
