2003 ford transit 2.4 diesel Pats immobalizer query

Post by nick1234 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 5:57 am

Hi everyone Tim Here.

I have read over 60 pages on this forum and am a little confused.

1) I have forscan on my win 7 laptop.
2) I have extended the Licence.

3 ) My van was sitting for 2 years with a flat battery and the Immobaliser light is flashing a code 23.
New Battery and cleaned all contacts.
Can I use the USB elm327 obd2 hs / ms with toggle switch to reprogramme the pcm and 2 keys??

As I am about to purchase the Required Adaptor and I have seen one with the toggle switch and one without??

Thank you for any Help . Tim From Tasmania. :-)

taken from another forum type page-
"Hi there thanks
Ok flash code 23 indicates that The challenge response code exchange between the fuel injection pump control unit and the PCM has failed.
In each case we see this fault the Immobilsor system needs to be re configured/initialised using the ford ids diagnostic software
Once the Immobilsor system is initialised the vehicle will start
This fault only seems to happen on transit and transit connect
the initialisation resets the Immobilsor challenge codes
Unfortunately this is the only way to resolve this issue"

forscan should be able to do it and buy the one with the swtich if you havent already.
dont expect to be spoon fed you will learn nothing .
do search ,its a wonderful thing and saves everyone a lot of time .
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .

Hi Andy
As i understand it the "as Built" data is held on the motorcraft/ford site ?, I entered the VIN number of my van and it did generate a small "ab" file but once analysed with a txt editor it states the info for my vin was not found so im at a loss as where to attain the AB data ?.

Thanks

that is the as built file your vin is in hex/binary so no good using a text editor just load the file up in forscan and write it too your module , it contains data for all the modules on your car .#if i looked at the file i could tell you your vin , you just have to know how to read it .


Hint - dont forget to change the file type to all from as (or what ever ) when looking for the ab file in forscan. will be obvious once you open the tab to look for the file .
