Hello. Just found this forum and need some help. I have a 2015 XLT long wheelbase and replaced the left strut. I could not get the wiper arms off the shafts, tried everything. Of course I moved the arms up, down, sideways, pulled, beat, and anything imaginable. Finally unbolted the left motor bracket and moved it enough to get at the strut bolts. Now the problem. When the wipers are on pulse or just hit for mist the right arm will stop at extended. If on delay when the next cycle goes the arm will come back down. If I hit mist, mist must be hit again to make it come back down. I did not remove the bracket or motor from the right side. Searching this forum I did not see anything related to this problem unless I missed it. I did read some things related to the BCM. Does something need reprogramming? Thanks in advance for any help in solving my problem.

There is a calibration function for the wipers in Forscan. I will look for a more generic method.

Here is the Forscan procedure. TC and Focus are there same for this function.

 

Maybe the calibration will reset whatever is causing the problem? I don't know.

 

Forscan has a learning curve and you need an adapter. Details are discussed in this forum and any Focus forum.

You will need a scan tool to read the DTCs. Forscan can do this and also reset modules. If this is too much trouble, you will need to visit a dealership to get this corrected.

Thanks Don. I have an Autel and OTC scan tools. I haven't looked for any programs in either. Never heard of Forscan........ Is that a factory Ford program?

Forscan is hacked software

 

No, it's more like "automotive enthusiast community created" (via a group of beta developers & programmers) software because no - zero - "hacking" of any other program was done to create FORScan. Just because something is not made by a "company" doesn't make it "hacked".

It's used primarily by F150 guys

 

 

I thought it was more popular with Mustang & Focus owners.  It seems to work well with Transit Connect.

For FORScan, you will need a computer.  Most guys prefer a laptop.
