Ford Focus Service Manual: Resetting The Keep Alive Memory (KAM) - Gasoline Engines (Powertrain Diagnostics)

Ford Focus Service Manual / Body / Body Electrical / Resetting The Keep Alive Memory (KAM) - Gasoline Engines (Powertrain Diagnostics)


Resetting the KAM returns the powertrain control module (PCM) memory to its default setting. Adaptive learning contents such as adaptive airflow, idle speed, refueling event, and fuel trim are included. Clearing the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and resetting the emission monitors information in the PCM, is part of a KAM reset. Refer to Clear The Continuous Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) And Reset The Emission Monitors Information In The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) in this section. Both can be useful in post-repair testing.

After the KAM has been reset, the vehicle may exhibit certain driveability concerns. It is necessary to allow the engine to idle at normal operating temperature with the A/C off for 2 minutes. Then drive the vehicle to allow the PCM to learn the values for optimum driveability and performance.

This function may not be supported by all scan tools. Refer to the scan tool manufacturer's instruction manual.

If an error message is received or the scan tool does not support this function, disconnecting the battery ground cable for a minimum of 5 minutes may be used as an alternative procedure on some vehicles.
