PATS Key reset

Post by tumble2113 » Wed Jun 25, 2014 8:49 pm

Hi Everyone,
I have yet to configure the MS-CAN portion yet, so I have not tested it for the function yet, I was curious if you are able to reset the PAT key with FORSCAN.
From my understanding with other tools, you remove the PATS keys. Then you are able to program the TWO new keys by normal steps (inert key 1, turn it to run, insert key 2, etc)

Thank you in advance

Current version of FORScan has PATS programming function only for Lincoln LS model. PATS functions are not most popular, so their development priority is not high. Next model the PATS function will be implemented for is Mondeo Mk3, Focus Mk1 and other models with this type of PATS.

Thanks for the update, Have US Ford Fusion here. There seems to be a lot of people who end up with one key, so you can buy another key from and have it cut, but you get stuck going to the dealer to reprogram for the two PATs keys

Hi,

I'd like to throw another +1 in for PATS recode support in forscan. I've got a (UK) 2005 Mondeo 2.0 TDCi that I'd like to reset & re-add the keys to using forscan.

Thanks.

Will any functions for the Australian Ford Falcon be supported, It would be good to reset the Keys on mine, I only got one with the car when purchased so it would be good to clear others out of the memory and add a couple more keys as a just in case.
Specifically [BA] (October 2002 - October 2005) Falcon, Futura, Fairmont, Fairmont Ghia, Fairlane, LTD, FPV
(I have heard that the PATS for the AU2,AU3 and BF are the same as BA so adding the function for these cars would cover most of the Falcon's on the road presently)

I'd like to throw my weight behind some more PATS functionality, If its possible to be put on the cards.........................please? :D

Mainly for Gen 4 and 4.5 USDM Taurus's MY. '00-'07
But Second Gen North American Focus owners would most appreciate it too. MY '08-'11
Same for First Gen (Americas) Fusion owners. MY '08-'12

All these vehicles share almost identical PATS systems, in fact the key blanks are the same.

We on the TaurusClub Forums would be willing to pay some money for that, As Dealer IDS time usually starts @ $100+
And the usual problem of, you can't do on board programming without 2 keys, and as most cars come with two, people lose one, then are screwed 6 ways from Sunday

I did jury rig a knock off USB VCM, and a hacked version of FoCOM, which with some finagling, bailed me out of a sticky situation, but is otherwise just about impossible w/o a IDS.
USDM 2006 Ford Taurus using a OBDLink MX

Willing to beta test
