Cant locate PATS function

Post by robsmoke » Mon Aug 12, 2019 11:09 pm

I just replaced my Pcm in my 2016 F150 and wrote the factory as built file to it. Now I am immobilized with DTC 161A. I have reset it and still nothing. I need to do a PATS Parameter reset but the PATS module does not show up. Does anyone know why?

PATS function for 2015+ F-150 is not implemented in FORScan yet, sorry. In contrast to older models, it uses PATS CODED method instead of TIMED and requires authorized access to Ford clould to generate incode. We work on this problem and hopeful to implement support for this method in future versions. But for now you have to visit a locksmith to program PATS, sorry.

should work with 2014 models as long as you have a good working elm or other reader that works with forscan . and you not using wifi or ios versions .
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .

I'm getting the same problem I have the latest Forscan download and the extended licence but can't find the PATs module anywhere I'm trying to code a new key for a Mk7 Fiesta build date: Jan 2017.

Please help, I have an older Transit 2011 and the PATs shows up as it should so I'm sure it's just a programming problem.

Is it a case of just waiting for the next update?

Have you tried rolling back Forscan to one of the older versions?

Will it roll back?
I've just spotted 2.3.26 was out on the 30/Oct/19
I was running 2.3.25 and thought this was the latest version I have now updated to 2.3.26

Will try it next week when the wife returns home from Glasgow.
