1995 PCM Reflash for OBD2?

I have heard the 94-95 Powerstrokes can have the ECM flashed to make it OBDII compatible? Who can do this? Ford dealers or after market? Does anyone have any information on this?

None of the OBS 7.3's were OBD-II compliant.

They have the ports, but the PCM's are not OBD-II compliant.

I was confused by that as well when I got my AE scanner and couldn't get it to connect the truck. I called AE. They are the ones who told me the OBS 7.3's were not OBD-II compliant.

I know of quite a few people that have used AE on obs trucks, along with scangauges and other scan tools that work with obd 2.

Re: 1995 PCM Reflash for OBD2?

right after I got my rig 6 or so yrs ago, I heard the same thing about non compliance with the 94.5-95 -- but my 94.5 has had AE hooked up a few times and runs a scan gauge since reflashed at a dealer.

2000 F250 CCSB-- GT4294R, 250/100s, Dahl/Fuelab, PHP, scan gauge, stock 17* pump

1994 F250 4x4 SC (sold)
1997 F250 CCSB 2wd (sold)

Will take it into the Ford dealer and see if I can get them to do a PCM update once. Thanks for the replies.
