FORD PATS (PASSIVE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM) INITIALIZATION WITH THE 2534 GLOBAL PROGRAMMER

Page 1

Refer to Table 1 (page 11) to identify what type of PATS your vehicle is equipped with. The E version of PATS also stores the key information within the PCM. IF REPROGRAMMING AN UPDATED CALIBRATION TO AN EXISTING PCM (ALL PATS TYPES) The Module Reprogramming selection MUST be selected. but CANNOT be transferred to the new PCM. This type MUST be relearned on the vehicle after the new PCM is installed. B. Doing this will insure you retain the existing PATS key information. Page 2 . Note: If you are just updating the existing PCM calibration with an update calibration. D. The A or D version of PATS does not store the key information in the PCM. E). therefore NO PATS KEY RELEARN IS REQUIRED after programming. The B or C versions of PATS store the key information within the PCM and MUST be transferred to the new PCM. C. PATS initialization is generally performed after programming. not reprogram and install (this will avoid a key relearn procedure).There are five types of PATS implementations from Ford (A. you must select the MODULE REPROGRAMMING function (not Programmable Module Installation). or relearned on the vehicle after the new PCM is installed.

To transfer your PATS key information to the new PCM. C TYPES ONLY) The Programmable Module Installation selection MUST be selected. your original PCM must be connected to the global programmer first. If the original is unavailable. This must be done to avoid a key relearning procedure. Page 3 . a PATS key relearn procedure must be performed after the PCM is installed on the vehicle. Please disconnect your old PCM and install your new PCM when this screen appears.If REPLACING OR INSTALLING A NEW PCM (B.

Please refer to your scan tool operation manual for instructions. This function must be performed ON THE VEHICLE and cannot be performed off board. C TYPES) A key relearn procedure for PCMs containing B or C type PATS systems is completed by performing a PARAMETER RESET function. The boxes in red indicate the vehicle contains the B or C implementation of PATS: Page 4 .PATS KEY RELEARN (B. The scan tool feature will be similar. Select PATS Functions from the Module Programming screen. The FORD website feature is detailed below. This function is performed by using a scan tool with PATS capability or via the FORD website using the PATS feature.

In some cases the PATS Control Function Location may have another entry other than PATS. There is a mandatory 10 minute security access delay. Click on the check mark to continue. then it is a PATS type E system. A Security Access confirmation screen will appear. If this lists PCM. IC. Refer to the PATS E type key relearn procedure in the following section. Page 5 . Please wait 10 minutes. HEC. etc. for example: ICM. EC.

Page 6 . Select YES to continue.Select PARAMETER RESET.

The Parameter Reset will be performed. Page 7 . This function only takes a few seconds. Click the check mark once the Parameter Reset function is completed successfully.

Select PCM and follow the instructions to start the vehicle. Page 8 .

PATS KEY RELEARN (E TYPE) !IMPORTANT! Two keys will be needed to start the vehicle. you will not be able to start the vehicle. If two keys are not available. The boxes in red indicate an ‘E’ type PATS implementation: Page 9 .

Page 10 . Please wait 10 minutes.There is a mandatory 10 minute security access delay. Click on the check mark to continue. A Security Access confirmation screen will appear.

!IMPORTANT! Two keys will be needed to start the vehicle. Page 11 . If two keys are not available.Select Ignition Key Code Erase. you will not be able to start the vehicle.

Remove or disable this aftermarket equipment if problems with any key programming sequence occur. remote starters or other devices utilizing transponders. The vehicle will fail to start during this 30-second time period even if a correctly programmed key is used. Do not reprogram keys if a fault cannot be identified. or PCM) If the engine does not crank on vehicles that have PATS providing a ground to the starter relay. PCM ID does not match between the PCM and PATS control (PATS/ICM/VIC/HEC/SCIL). If you attempt to start the vehicle with an unprogrammed key. Systems B. Basics • • • • • • • • • • • Erasing and reprogramming ignition keys does not cure any known intermittent PATS no-start issues. (ICM. PATS Theft Indicator flashes every 2 seconds at Ignition OFF. PCM disabled the vehicle because of a PATS concern. Non-PATS key or damaged key. for presence of Starter Interrupt. the theft indicator will flash rapidly and the vehicle will not start. This is normal operation for PATS proveout. (Investigate PCM system) Engine stalls on road: Once the engine runs for one second. C and E have an anti-scan function. in Anti-Scan Mode). such as alarms.No PCM ID stored in PATS. Devices that power up the PCM without powering up the PATS Control module can experience no-start concerns. (Investigate PCM system) There is no communications with PCM .replace PCM). Running stalls are not PATS issues. PATS Control module replacing. Disconnect battery cables when replacing the PATS modules. Make sure you have all of the customer’s keys when doing reprogramming. other PATS keys. Page 15 . Transceiver internal antenna damaged. Reprogramming the PCM does not have any impact on PATS operation.PATS DTC CHART DTC B1213 B1232/B2103 B1342 B1600 B1601 B1602 B1681 B2141 B2139 B2431 U1147/U1262 P1260 DESCRIPTION Less than 2 (or 3 if equipped w/Valet key) keys programmed to the system. Some aftermarket audio equipment have been found to keep the run/start circuit active for over 5 seconds past ignition off. Items such as foil stickers. SCIL. VIC. Alarm goes off: PATS is completely separate from the perimeter alarm system (if installed). Key programmed failure (defective key or transceiver) Communications issue. if: • • • • • • • • The “Service Engine Soon” light is illuminated. brass key tags. Leave the key in the RUN position for 30 seconds for the anti-scan feature to time out. PATS will not cause the alarm to go off. Transceiver signal not detected. and other transponders used to purchase gasoline or other metallic objects can cause interference with the PATS key. between PCM and PATS control (PATS/ICM/VIC/HES/SCIL). This is normal operation for PATS to act as a visual theft deterrent. This can prevent pats from properly reading ignition keys during key programming. PCM will always communicate on the diagnostic link regardless of theft status. Partial detection of encoded ignition key. HEC. If the PCM has a P1260. There is a no-crank problem on vehicles without PATS starter disable. make sure the customer throws out all old keys or programs them as spare keys.) PATS Theft Indicator stays on for 2 or 3 seconds (depending on system type) at Ignition RUN or START and then off. Retrieve DTC’S from applicable PATS control function (PATS/ICM/VIC/HES/SCIL). or diagnosis. Replace transceiver. Unprogrammed encoded ignition key detected (leave ignition on for 20 seconds before trying a programmed key. PATS CANNOT disable the engine. verify the PATS output to the starter relay. Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) configuration failure . When replacing ignition keys. (See chart on reverse side for applicable system. Check Table 1. SCP (J1850). PATS related when stored in PCM only. ECU is defective (EEPROM in PCM is not working. Remote Entry/Keyless Entry problems: PATS is completely separate from the Remote Entry/Keyless Entry systems. It is not a PATS Issue. Always verify that there are no aftermarket devices causing interference. look for additional codes in the PATS control module.
