Attention Shelby Owners - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Owners of Kenne Bell, Paxton, and Wipple superchargers

This information has to do with the Ford recall notice with respect to passenger side airbag. If you decide to take your car into your Ford dealership for this recall, they will need to tap into your vehicle's computer to correct the problem. They will need to re-program the RCM (Restraint Control Module). It takes them a very short period of time and you should be on your way without incident.

Here is where it gets tricky. If by accident the technician goes into the PCM (Power Control Module) instead of the RCM, they will essentially replace your existing power tune with whatever is in their programming module. If you have a Kenne Bell, Wipple, or Paxton Supercharger, then you have a vendor-unique tune. If the technician accidentally wipes out your unique tune, Ford cannot re-program it without obtaining the unique vendor program direct from the supercharger vendor.

If you encounter the worst case scenario, and your program gets wiped out, have your Ford dealer contact Shelby Automobiles Inc. directly. We in turn will work between the Ford dealership and the respective supercharger vendor to insure that they receive the tune needed to re-flash your PCM. DO NOT have the Ford dealership contact the supercharger vendor directly. The MUST contact Shelby at the following telephone number:

Shelby Automobiles Inc.
(702) 942-7325
. Doug Sinclair (ext. 105)
. Bud Mahoney (ext. 140)
. Donnie Beson (ext. 145)

Please take this communication to the Ford dealer if you are intending to act on the passenger side airbag recall notice.

Donnie Beson
Director of Sales
Shelby Automobiles Inc.

DEALER TECHNICIANS -- ATTENTION:
BEFORE plugging IDS into the DLC of this vehicle, please be sure you have your IDS software updated to version 53.12 P20 or later. This vehicle is equipped with an aftermarket PCM calibration that will identify to IDS as a stock calibration. It is CRITICAL that you DO NOT REFLASH THE PCM of this vehicle under any circumstances. Engine failure WILL result, for which the dealer will be held responsible. If IDS informs you that a later calibration is available, do NOT flash the vehicle. Any PCM calibration updates necessary will be handled by Shelby Automobiles Inc. Also, if a PCM replacement is deemed necessary for any reason, prior authorization must be obtained from Shelby Automobiles Inc.

Do you know what model years this recall affects?

Hmmmm, not exactly what I wanted to hear... that the Ford dealer may need to get into my computer.

I do want my car to be safe and the air bags to operate properly though.

I wonder if the recall is critical and is it voluntary for we owners.

What is the feeling regarding this?

This appears to be very outdated info from the 05 - 07ish models, I know Bud nor Donnie are no longer with SAI, I don't think Doug is either!

The airbag recall was for 2005-08 Mustangs. The letter posted is at least four years old and does not apply to 2009-2013 Mustangs.

Good, I don't want a Ford dealer in my computer, at least not yet.

I typed an internet search and saw the old Mustang airbag recall but nothing for the 2012s.

I did find a recall/update for passenger side airbags for 2012 Ford trucks, and got to thinking maybe the Mustangs were included.

I am glad to hear this information is old news.

This campaign was the only warranty item on my car and was performed in 08 according to Ford prior to my purchase new. Yep pretty old stuff, wonder why it jumped up on the forum again.

I just got this recall performed last week. I purchased mine in Jan and it showed up on the Oasis when I bought it. Forgot about it until last week.

My technican is great and had it completed in less than 10 minutes. Did not even pull car into service bay.
