Ok, I'm still having trouble finding a box with my number. Does anyone know if any box will work so long as its from a 2000 GT coupe? Or do the numbers have to match due to different options or setups on different cars?

FWIW the 2000 shop manual show this part number for the RCM:

It also shows the same number for 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004--though I have found that the part numbers in the shop manuals do not always relate in any way to the p/n's on the components.

I found the same p/n listed for the F-150, Expedition/Navigator, Crown Vic/Grand Marquis and a few other larger/"legacy" models...

Hmmm, that seems to be the case on mine as far as that number not being the same as that number in the manual. You think one out of those models would work regardless of what the actual number on the box is? there are F-150's and such all over the yards, but I never thought it would be the same.

Actually...

DA-123B41-A3RX

I think I'm an idiot. I need to look again and remember to reverse the numbers for the mirror haha. Looks like that's the number in my car. I'll have to go check out some F-150's. As always, you're the man. If we ever meet up I'm definitely buying you a beer.

Well I found one out of an 03. It's the same number, but it's A"E" instead of A"D" like my module is. He said it's listed as a service part for my car. What do you guys think, should I used it?

They said they wanted $110 for it. I talked them down to $100. Said I can get one aftermarket for 80 and get mine rebuilt for 60. Told them to call me back if they can do better. But I think the best route is to stay OE Ford on this thing, I don't trust aftermarket, and I don't really trust someone on ebay rebuilding my part.

Smile Same Problem

We have a vehicle that has an issue with the RCM being full. The vehicle has definately not been wrecked so I'm guessing that the bracket is broken.

Were you able to repair and replace yours? We are trying to figure out what to do about ours so we can have it inspected.

check it for codes, if it has the crash detected code, its smoked. If thats the case, you must replace it. As far as "proving" out the system.....skip that whole useless step. You depower the SRS (if you feel unsafe for some reason; I even skip that step) Replace the RCM and plug it all back in and start the car. The Airbag systems in Fords will test as soon as the key is on, and light will go out on its own if the problem is solved. You should clear the codes when its all said and done (if any remain in the memory) but even that isnt necessary

I got one from a JY with the same code, tossed it in and it's been working just fine. Didn't have to reprogram anything at all.

As you have found there is nothing to "program", the Ford dealer you spoke to originally (way back when) was either trying to rip-you off or did not know what they were talking about--most likely the latter...
