Ford MyKey Reset

Post by sheltonfilms » Tue May 03, 2016 2:54 am

My friend has a 2011 Focus (USA) and when she bought the car it only came with one key. This key has been setup as a MyKey enabled key, so she has restrictions on her car and doesn't have an admin key.

Is there a way using Forscan to reset this? Is there an ABD value that can be changed that disables this?

It seems that a PATs erase/reprogram (with an additional key) would solve this but I don't see the 2011 Focus being supported.

Thanks in advance.

Focus Mk3 is not supported yet, principial problem there is no access to incode/outcode calculators to obtain access to PATS. Not sure, though, if one for US market has some differencies in PATS (e.g. supports timed method)

Found this bit of information on motorcrafts website:

"Please note that there is no electronic PIN code required to reprogram Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) keys for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles built in North America up through Model Year 2013. These North American Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles have PATS/ Immobilizer systems that are built with a time delay feature."

Asked many times, I linked topics at viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4120.
Not sure if that can be resolved, but is surely much wanted.
