That is usually an indicator of an ECM starting to fail, but check the ECM power and grounds pathways and replace the ECM relay, Fords do have problems as they get older with loss of ground and relays getting weak. But all of the Fords that I have came into my shop that did what yours is doing wound up getting a new ECM. Hope this helps.

Be sure you got the right TFI module. Color coded. ECM;s dont start to fail.....they fail or they do not.
