Shopkey makes references to these, so I'm assuming they exist: ABS control module, restraints control module.

Better save some for the rest of you guys. :p
I think we have this covered, there are only 65 references in the service manual, and many of those are repeated[ninja] [rofl]

suss helped fix it, now you can throw out more & argue about the official acronyms (grin).

This might draw some questions about what they all do as the list grows, and how they work together.

It's a subject new to the Focus world, as earlier ones made do with few (just a couple in mine).

There's one for a question,

Why audio front control?

What does it control, and why is one listed as "front".

Is this the control panel for the radio?

Enquiring minds want to know if it's just a strange name for a simple item.

List every component controlled by each module and then specify the factory warranty period for each module.

This should keep suss busy while we all go have a beer.

1. PCM - Powertrain Control Module
2. TCM - Transmission Control Module
3. BCM - Body Control Module
4. APIM - Accessory Protocol Interface Module
5.ABS Module
6. RCM -Restraints Control Module (airbag module)
7.SASM - Steering Angle Sensor Module
8.Audio Front Control Module (ACM)

Yes it's just the control head for the radio. It's the audio control unit mounted in the front of the car behind the radio fascia.

I already posted this list, but you guys keep defeating the point of the thread which as pointed out was to allow people the opportunity to name 1 module not all 20 listed in the service manual.

Oh well.

fixed it - credit for one added - we'll keep it going for a short while (Sailor)

Radio's got a few modules depending on options, looks like that one is the main audio control.

Gave wavsine credit for the SASM.

So, we know 20 are mentioned in the Owner's manual - but with 65 references in the Service manual there could be others beyond the duplicates.

Lot of networking going on in this car!
