Default How to locate your processor code (PCM)

Your Fusions PCM code is located behind your battery on the outside of your PCM. The PCM is attached to the firewall.

You may be able to see your PCM code without removing your cars battery. If you can see it please refer to Figure 3. If you have a hard time seeing the PCM code you can remove your battery to more easily see it. See Figure 2 to remove your battery.


Figure 1

If you need to remove your battery to view your PCM code; remove the two screws with the red squares around them pictured in Figure 2. You can try to view the PCM code without removing the battery by looking behind and below the battery. See the Orange box below.


Figure 2

Below you can see the Fusion's PCM code located on the PCM of your Fusion. It will be three letters followed by a number.

Thanks I am going to be getting a tune but I honestly am not sure now if I will be ordering it. Apparently there is a well know shop near me in the detroit area that will make a custom tune for your car using the dyno and I am bringing it there to get dyno's in a week or 2 but I may still go with ordering one depending on the price and after service details thanks for the quick response.


I have a stock auto 2.3l and will be dyno'd after every performance mod until it is complete I am going to take it as far as manufacturers and my job and wife will allow including a super charger. I am pretty sure I will be going with alot of steeda parts both performance and cosmetic as it is a project car for me and my son and he loves your cosmetic upgrades.

Ok so I took out the battery, but am still unable to locate the PCM. Can someone help me please? Did they move the location of it in the 08's? Thanks.

Okay does anyone have any tips to actually seeing what the heck is on that sticker in the V6 engine bay? :shock:

I had some friends remove the battery & pulled the battery tray away from area where we could see the sticker on the firewall, but between five of us and three different cameras we couldn't see the sticker clear enough to read it (It's almost like the sticker was placed too low)

I was thinking maybe try one of those flexible mirrors and then take a photo of the results? Or can a blank Xcal 2 read the PCM code? I have a blank one awaiting tuneage as I have a Steeda SRI on order through my local Ford dealer, along with some other bits, I'd really like a tune to compliment it but getting the code is proving to be impossible
