Some vehicles built 11/29/2004 and prior may exhibit the wrench light on with both P2106 and P2135 diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). ACTION: Replace the throttle position sensor (TPS) following the instruction sheet included in the TPS service kit. Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using WDS release B36.11 and higher, or B37.2 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the B37 CD. Calibration files are also available at www.motorcraft.com. CAUTION: FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE TPS REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION PROCEDURE WILL RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE TPS SCREWS.

Some 2005-2007 F-Super Duty vehicles may exhibit a speedometer and/or tachometer indicator issue. Symptoms may include intermittent, large inaccuracies, or jumping/bouncing/erratic pointers. ACTION Refer to the Service Procedure. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Verify there are no diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). If there are DTCs present, follow the appropriate procedure in the Workshop Manual to clear the DTC and resolve the concern. 2. Confirm that the axle ratio and tire size are properly configured in the ABS module. 3. For a speedometer related concern, If no DTCs are present, the issue may be with any of the following components: • Cluster • ABS Module • ABS Speed Sensor • Vehicle Wiring • If the symptom is a continuous (non-intermittent) large inaccuracy, ensure that the axle ratio and tire size are properly configured in the ABS module. To identify the cluster as the root cause: 1. Monitor the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) PID in the powertrain control module (PCM), and the speedometer needle position while stopped. 2. If the speedometer displays 5 MPH (8 Km/h) or more, and the VSS PID indicates zero, replace the instrument cluster. 3. With an assistant observing the diagnostic tool, drive the vehicle at 20, 40, and 60 MPH (32, 64, and 97 Km/h) as indicated on the diagnostic tool, and record the value indicated by the speedometer. 4. If the speed indicated on the diagnostic tool versus speedometer readings vary by more than ± 5 MPH, (8 Km/h) replace the instrument cluster. ABS Module Concern To identify if the ABS Module is the root cause, refer to diagnostic procedures in the Workshop Manual. For any customer complaints of jumping/bouncing/erratic speedometers, a wiring concern may exist which is severe enough to interrupt the signal, but not severe enough to totally open/short the circuit.

ISSUE Some 2006 Explorer, Mountaineer and 2007 Explorer Sport Trac vehicles built on or before 8/8/2006 and equipped with a 4.0L engine may experience coolant leaking from the radiator. ACTION Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Replace the radiator with the updated radiator following Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 303-03. NOTE NOTE: A REVISED FAN STRATEGY IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR THESE APPLICATIONS 2. Reprogram the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 58.2 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2008.11 Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.
