hi @smartguy69
Form the moment I have sync 3 acm on my car.

I don't know. The software file is different for Sync 3. The hardware may be the same. If you know how to upgrade module firmware then you could try. You may brick your sync 1 ACM.

The software file for ACM is CV4T-14D099-LG or CV4T-14D099-LJ is readily available.

That is sync 1 software which isn't going to work with sync 3 or sync 2. I would have thought the firmware will put the hexadecimal codes in the right places so all models of ACM will be the same for each generation of sync for the Kuga. The only difference will be the firmware. This is only a guess and not based on fact.

However in order for you to try and calibrate your sync 1 ACM to see if it will take the new firmware you need calibration file CV4T-14D099-LG or CV4T-14D099-LJ NOT CV4T-14D099-FG. Ford may have changed the ACM hardware between sync 1 so may not work even if you can do it in Forscan.

I don't know what the other calibration files are for.

You have two choices. the first is to try and re-program your sync 1 ACM with calibration file CV4T-14D099-LG or CV4T-14D099-LJ .

The other is to replace ACM with a sync 3 part number CV4T-19C107-LG or CV4T-19C107-LJ.
