    Default Wildtrax software problem

    Good day all. I have a 2015 3.2L DC wildtrax. The gearbox was giving me problems, it was not changing down. When i tried to accelerate it was always in the wrong gear. I took it back to ford and they said it was a software issue and said it wouldnt be a problem again. Has anyone else had this?

    These days you have to plug a usb in to remove the break light globe...

    But, in my reality, there is no software update that can repair a hardware problem... You can mask an issue, but not remove it...

    Unless the software glitched the previous time they pushed it, yes.

    Morning just remember software in modern stuff control the hardware. So difficult to say wat is at fault . If it was hardware that was broken they cant correct it by the software. The new and previous T6 gearbox the same just the software settings diff.

    Now pierre2013 or any body else .As they say the new t6 gearbox is programmed for longer legs. If I put 265/70/17 instead of 265/65/ 17 on it should get closer to new spec. My question is with a longer ratio or bigger tyre which is best for fuel consumption.

    Theoretically the longer ratio, and bigger tires, but I do find that on the 2.2 manual, running in 5th is sometimes more economical than 6th...


    If you change tires, and your dealer halve knows whats going on, they will be able to change your gearbox ratios according to tire sizes...

    They can also adjust the speedo to match the new tire size
