UPDATE--- There is NO "reprogramming" necessary, but you need to get trouble codes cleared. These will not make the check engine light illuminate, and you won't be able to read or clear the codes with a standard OBDII scanner. Read below-
Since my Napa shift motor came with a 1 year warranty, I went ahead and swapped it out today. On the instructions, at the bottom in BOLD letters it says to NOT engage the motor until you have the ATC trouble codes cleared using the proper scan tool.
I installed the new motor there in the parking lot, and drove down to Ford. (making sure NOT to engage four wheel drive, of course)
After explaining to the tech the situation, and referring him to the instruction sheet, he hooked up the snazzy laptop/code scanner to my truck. He found multiple codes in regards to the transfer case and shift motor. He cleared the codes, now my four wheel drive works flawlessly. I was charged nothing. Your results may vary.
Good Luck snopro442 I hope this helps you!
