    AP Reinstall After Purge Valve Recall Performed

    Hello guys,

    I've seen some talk regarding AP roms and the purge valve recall. I called and spoke with Cobb this morning who stated they have not seen any issues with AP reinstalls after the PCM update for the recall. I've been kind of worried about this considering the $$$ I've dropped on the AP and a variety of tunes. Cobb also asked to contact them immediately if the AP doesn't install correctly so they could pull diagnostics and create an update file.

    Hope this helps someone out there

    Great info!
    seems to be a none issue. as always recommended to plug it in to a PC and upgrade to the newest COBB AP version

    Happy tuning!

    15 ST3 fully bolted w/WMI
    STRAT tuned

    I just dropped off for update. I uninstalled AP before. Update was done and purge valve failed. Part will be replaced tomorrow. I will update as soon as I try to reflash tune. Should not be an issue I believe since a previous update bricked reinstall due to reflash using 2016 strategies. So AP recognized car as 2016 USDM instead of 2015 so stratified updated my tune to reflect 16 strategies.

    Dealer stated that my purge valve and gas tank were fine. They did however, flash the PCM. Once finished I installed the accessport and it recognized my car without any issues. I'm not sure if the dealer is just blowing smoke, but I didn't have any problems with the reinstallation.

    I emailed Strat a week or so ago and they said that unless it is flashed and comes back as a different ROM ID or whatever that it should be fine. If it is greyed out and will not install then you need to pay for a ROM update on the tune. So you have a 50/50 chance that everything will be fine. If not then the tune needs to be updated to reflect the change. I bet it is like stated above where some older models the ROM changed to make a 2015 look like a 2016. I need an oil change soon and the dealer thru in a service agreement, oil and rotate, so I get it done there. We shall see if they do the recall when I get that done.

    Thanks for posting this, I asked a few times about this in the other thread about the massive purge valve recall so it's interesting to see now that people aren't seeming to have issues. Thats a good thing to know some have gotten the update done and not had issues with the AP reinstall. Good to go and thanks again, I guess Ill be calling my local Ford for an appt.
