Feps short to ground

Has anybody ever experienced "feps short to ground" while trying to re-flash a PCM or TCM with IDS. Any help would be extremely appreciated.

feps - Flash EEPROM Programming Signal. An 18-volt DC signal input from the diagnostic tool used by the PCM to initiate programming

sounds like it may be an IDS issue.

I have run into this once before but it was so long ago I can't for the life of me remember any details about it. I can't find anything in the workshop manual about this issue either

Yes I think your right. I think it is something in the VCM itself. I tried re-flashing two different 6.0 and in both of them had that error. This is a brand new unit, and those were the first two re-flashes i had attempted. Also a friend who use to be a tech for Ford just came by and hooked up his IDS and his was able to re-flash it, so it has nothing to do with the vehicle. But thank you sinner6.0l I really appreciate you taking your time to help.
