Probably going to have to give this a few weeks. As you know this just came out in the press. My dealer knows of it now, but has not seen anything in the technical database they use... yet.

I just got mine done yesterday. My dealer was a little suprised but he wrote the code on the invoice and said it was done. I will know in a few weeks if it makes a difference.

If we're talking about the same thing, did they charge you for the flash?

So I guess there's no chance of it being done on an '03 Zetec.

faulkton, they didn't charge for the flash..my 06 has only 10,000 miles..I can't say if they will charge if you are over the basic warranty..
