When you tune your car, it saves that stock tune so that it can be returned to stock if needed.

If you are saying you have a blank ECM and you need the stock tune. No, it can't.

What happened was the ECM got fried SO I have to buy one from Rockauto.com. They told me I have to flash It and install PATS on it. They told me I have to bring my car over there and they have to install it. Is they a way I can do this myself? Can I buy a tuner to flash the new ECM?

I can turn my lights on, Dome light works, I just cant turn my engine over. It sounds like a computer issues. Dome light dings when doors open but makes a dead noise trying to turn the engine over. I just cant afford was Ford wants to charge me

A Ford dealer has to flash it because of the PATS system. Only they have the software to do that kind of work.

Ford told me I have to tow my car over there so they can flash the ECM. Why cant I get them the computer and tell them my stocks settings? Theres got the be a way around ford. I don't feel like paying a $1000 for a car that isnt worth that money. Could I call a Tuner shop?

Only dealers have the software/equpment to flash an ECM with PATS.
The reason they need the car is because they also need to match the PATS the ignition and the gauge cluster.
