I hate to be this guy, but I'm really in a bind and need to be able to activate my trailer brake controller this week.

I've searched this quite a bit. I'm running 2.3.8 on a Windows 10 64-bit machine. I generated a key (a few times, actually) and have tried using the built in Load function from ForScan, by opening it in regedit, and by manually copy/pasting the key into the registry location. I've restarted the application, restarted the computer, and tried reinstalling. Nothing will make this extended license activate. Any ideas?


I've tried activating on another computer and it was just fine, of course. I can't figure out what would be wrong/different about my computer but any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I tried today to programe a key using this information, it didn't work, all steps went fine, but when the actual programing begins it just goes as far as 7% than stops and displays the programing failed message. Tried a few times. Anyone any thoughts on that?

Tomorrow im planning on adding a new key to my 2004 Mustang. Here is what I have/ and done.
Have extended FORScan running on my pc.
Have this adapter coming tomorrow.
Have bought this key and have had it cut.
I have only 1 master key.

I took this key I bought from amazon to home depot and they were nice enough to try and clone the master key to this key for free or their EZ clone tool thing. Unfortanetely it gave an error when trying to write to this new key. Im worried after I erase the master keys on my mustang i wont be able to enroll this second key and my car wont run. I need this car working monday...

I will use the DTC method described here to test it, but I know even if it passes this it might still not work.

Would you go ahead with this? Should I try the adding a spare key method described here?
I also noticed in out code generator website is down. Does my car use the time method?

I have tried yesterday on a Ford Focus Mk1 to add a new key and it works perfect. On my Focus mk 2 works good also. The transponders werent oem, but they worked. The chip model is 4d60 for mk1 and 4d63 for mk2.

Well, this was disappointing...


:evil: :cry: :? :P

No love for AKE it seems.

2011 Mazda MX5/Miata GT with Advanced Keyless Entry and start.

The transponder key programming is the same as non-AKE cars, so it's unfortunate I can't even do that. What would really be great is both key and remote/FOB programming because the dealers charge a fortune. Is this something that is planned (or hopefully being worked on)?

Ditto. Same question. Have a 2013 CX-9 GT, but only got 1 key when vehicle was purchased. Sad that the RKE module precludes PATS programming :(
