2007 Edge PCM Coils Problems

Nearly six weeks ago I had a coil go out while driving home in the Edge. Unlike every other Ford I've had since 2001, when the coil goes out in an Edge it burns up the PCM for you too.

I replaced all the coils and plugs and sent the PCM off to be repaired. ($200 repair vs $1200 for a new PCM from Ford). The PCM repair guy calls and tells me mine is beyond repair so he sends me a reman one. Install the reman PCM, but have to have it flashed so the Edge will actually start.After having it flashed the shop calls and says the PCM is bad and that it burned up another coil on a different cylinder than before. Send this PCM back to be warrantied but find a used PCM while I'm waiting on the other one. Install the used one and it's bad causing a coil #2 to not fire but the others are firing.

Am I having a run of bad computers or could there be something else cause the computers to fry? The original diagnostic from Ford stated faulty PCM and coil #6 needed replaced. I'm getting tired of spending money on this thing and really want it back on the road. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ford updated the pcm, coils, and spark plugs for this problem. They need to be replaced together as a set or the old coils will burn up the new pcm. I would bite the bullet and install Ford parts. That way you know its fixed and will stay fixed.

Fixed....

The problem was a series of bad computers. Finally received a good PCM and all is well. Only took a little over 2 months to figure it out.
