Better replacing the PCM with the same module, or with a module that was used in 2005/2006 Escape (starting with 58LA-12A650). Few other modules starting in 58LA-12A650 and ending in different way , may be adapted, but this risks to get you in more troubles. This truck has already enough problems with its own PCM .

Here a ready made search showing a number of PCM used by the Escape. Select only modules used in 05/06 Escape.

After replacement the PCM must be re-programmed using a com tool. For this you will need to go to the dealer or to any Ford garage.

About the PCM, there are 8 years/80K miles warranty on the part. Ask to the dealer if you are still covered.

About the failure, the PCM must be diagnosed accurately. Misfire or no power to one of the spark plug is not necessarily PCM. The coil driver is responsible for this problem most of the time.

I uploaded here the relative service document.

Looking for e8tf-12a650-x2b ecm

This is the PCM engine computer. It is the engineering number off the part itself. The service part number in the catalog will be different. Something like E8TZ-12A650- B.

999 of 100 that are replaced have nothing wrong with them. So, you probably are not oing to fix your issue.

What cause the O/d light blink

it's usually because you have a bad VSS, Vehicle Speed Sesnor. It sends a signal from the trans to the speedo and engine computer. Usually speedo stops working too.

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) (9E731) is a magnetic pickup that sends a signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) . This VSS signal transmits vehicle speed to the powertrain control module .

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
