Power Windows Global Access NOT working after SJB replace - Is this fixable? HOW?
05 Mustang with build date 1/7/05 has Active Anti-theft and HAD Global Access (power window down with Key FOB) until dealer replaced defective wiper motor and Smart Junction Box (SJB). SJB water damaged (see TSB 07-14-06) and dealer replaced SJB. When car was delivered had DRLs (Datime Running Lights) on and no Global Access power windows.
After a LONG TIME they were able to turn off the DRLs but Global Access does not work.
Tech said he did the Inhale/Exhale procedure (after I told them about it). If this is true shouldn't the DRL bit have been OFF as this was a US car not a Canadian one and the ASBUILT data should have reflected this.
Here is a excerpt from the Hotline Assistance Request they showed me:
"according to ssm20128 the vehicle should not have this option to begin with according to build date".
"there was an internal change to the sjb that will no lnger allow the feature to operate. Suggest contacting your zone office if further assistance is needed".
What the heck is an SSM? particularily ssm20128.
I believe the Global Access feature which was in the original SJB is SOFTWARE.
Can this be RE-ENABLED? HOW?
Thought the features were stored in the PCM or BCM. Is this feature only stored in the SJB?
Can't the nonvolitale memory be re flashed or even the chip removed from the old SJB and replaced inth the NEW one?
I worked with software for over 30 years and know a lot of things are possible.
Can someone with technical knowledge please respond.
