Connect to FEM, press “Reset mileage”, Explorer will propose to program the FEM / BDC, agree and wait for the programming to finish.
After successful programming, the program will write to you “Return the saved original Eeprom”, then remove FEM again and using programmer, return the previously read contents of EEprom 95128. Then you can install the unit back to the car.
