Ford Bronco EEC IV Codes


NOTE: When you see "is/was" listed for a code:

For a HARD fault code the sensor IS out of range right now.

For a MEMORY code, it WAS out of range at one time (possible intermittent wire etc.).

 

Some codes pertain to more than one system but there will be only one of the systems on the vehicle.

For example code 58. A vehicle with a VAT sensor will not have an Idle Tracking Switch.

 

Differences in test mode noted as:

 

(O) = Key On Engine Off test

(R) = Key On Engine Running test

(M) = Memory code
