Reading the OP. It sounds like the normal varible steering problem. And a bunch of techs that don't know how to fix it. Or fixed it with parts from the same bad batch.

The rest just sounds like sensational nothings. Going full drama lama at a dealer is bad mojo.

Ford KTP checks the SW flashes multiple times in their EOL and pre-ship process. Actually, computers check the SW flashes, and there is no human judgement on pass fail criteria. No way truck gets out of plant with "partial" SW load.

The part that makes no sense is the computer not having software installed for a factory option (adaptive steering).......never heard of anything like that.

Also agree that the "I paid $$$$ for this and it shouldn't happen" is as weak an argument as you can have. Plenty of Lexus, BMW, Mercedes owners have had lemon cars.......I bet you could find a Bugatti Veyron customer, or 2 that had issues with their $1 Million+ cars.....plus, throwing a fit in a dealership is a complete waste of time and will never, ever resolve anything.

Might just be a bad Ford ECM. Or the tech has a crappy computer and just plain messed up or misunderstood something. Or deleted it while trying to fix it. Techs say stupid things. That's why they don't do the weather on TV.

You said your steering was screwed up. Did it happen to make noise when you turned it significantly to the left or right? Iíve noticed a weird noise when I turn the steering wheel hard.
