2009 F150 PATS issues

Postby n1bsbri » Mon Oct 09, 2017 12:49 am

FORScan 2.3.11 beta

I need a little help with my 2009 F150. I changed the instrument cluster (to fix other problems, which is OK now). I was not successful in erasing and programming keys, as I found I had one original key, and a clone. The original Ford key is stamped "S", which I think is 40 bit.

To try to fix that, I bought a new ignition switch core and two new keys (aftermarket parts). The keys are possibly knock-offs, but they are stamped "SA", likely 80 bit. I can't successfully program the PATS with the two new keys. After several tries, what I now have is an error on entering erase and program:

(OK) [17:34:43.097] Number of keys stored: 0
(ERR) [17:34:48.992] No keys are programmed in this module
(OK) [17:34:51.699] Number of keys stored: 0
(ERR) [17:34:54.497] PATS programming has been cancelled by operator

Here are the DTCs I'm reading now, with one of the new keys.

===PCM DTC P1000:00-2B===
Code: P1000 - On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Systems Readiness Test Not Complete

Status:
- DTC Present at Time of Request
- Malfunction Indicator Lamp is Off for this DTC

===PCM DTC P1260:00-2B===
Code: P1260 - Theft Detected, Vehicle Immobilized

Status:
- DTC Present at Time of Request
- Malfunction Indicator Lamp is Off for this DTC

===IC DTC B1213-60===
Code: B1213 - At some time since last clear the ignition has been switched on with less than 2 keys stored.

Status:
- DTC Present at Time of Request
- Malfunction Indicator Lamp is Off for this DTC

And that's it. I'm stuck now because I can't enter the erase and program procedure, and there are "0" keys stored in the IC. This seems to contradict the DTCs which would indicate that the inserted key is recognized (no B16xx DTCs).

Any thoughts out there?
