Can't retrieve keypad code.

Post by JonC » Sun Sep 30, 2018 11:12 pm

I'm very new to Forscan, but I want to add keyless entry to my '14 F150 STX. I looked on the right side behind the kick panel and did not see a sticker. I also tried the two key method with no luck. I took the drivers door panel off and the wire and connector are there. I then hooked up my ELM adapter to read it on my laptop. It started to run and then got a "Service procedure has been interrupted" message. I tried it three times or so. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like a latency issue with your adapter...are you on a Bluetooth adapter or hardwire cable? Look at your connection speed in the log...if you're not running at low latency like 12ms or less, it'll bomb when trying to read or write. Bluetooth adapters are notoriously slow sending and receiving....cables can be tweaked in the computers USB Com port to reduce/improve latency.

I am using a USB adapter. Another forum suggested to enable it first and then should be able to read code. I just haven't had time to try it.

I enabled it and found the code, now to get the keypad installed.
