PATS key programming for 2015+ F150?

Post by dciobota » Mon Aug 07, 2017 8:43 pm

Hi all,

Apologies if it has been posted before, but I have searched several ways and came up empty handed. I have a 2016 F150 (XL). I have the bbFly obd module, forscan beta 3.10 with extended license. I can see all my modules (I think) and was able to make one programming change (dark car) successfully. However, I cannot see anything related to PATS in the service tab. Lots of module resets, some tire reset thing, but no PATS. I need to add a key and currently I only have one working key. Is there something I can use to add the new key, if Forscan doesn't support it? Other than the dealer, of course.

Alternatively, if someone has a link to a replacement flipkey blade (not the whole fob, just the blank blade) for the same model truck, that would be appreciated too. Locksmith botched mine.

Thanks in advance.

Daniel

Bumping this thread. I have the same issue on my 2016 F150 XLT. No PATS option in Forscan. I have 2 keys set as MyKey. I'd prefer to reprogram both as Admin keys rather than just disabling MyKey all together. Does anyone know how to properly do this with Forscan?

Late 15 and newer requires a trip to the dealer, I have a legit IDS and cannot program keys, I went round and round with Ford. They told me that you have to belong to a locksmith organization to get a code to enter into the IDS, in an effort to keep only legit people to program keys, translation = generate money for their service facilities.

I did get into contact with the locksmith organization they said to contact, almost a $1000 a year for a membership blah blah blah. They didn’t care that I was a gov’t entity, just needed payment and some magic background check.

I was however able to turn on the ability to program user programming of keys, but it limited me to a max of 6 keys and I cannot remove any if one gets lost. Hope that helps some.

I am needing to add a key also and wanted to know how you were able to do this. I have a 2015 Expedition that the key quit working because it got wet.

There are two methods to find out yourself and not ask nor bump:

1. LOOK at https://forscan.org/download.html, search for "PATS" and see if your model year supported.

2. SEARCH in forum, then you see for example: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=10483#p35885
