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

Download There are five types of PATS implementations from Ford (A, B, C, D, E). Refer to Table 1 (page 11) to identify what type of PATS your vehicle is equipped with. PATS initialization is generally performed after programming. The A or D version of PATS does not store the key information in the PCM, 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, or relearned on the vehicle after the new PCM is installed. The E version of PATS also stores the key information within the PCM, but CANNOT be transferred to the new PCM. This type MUST be relearned on the vehicle after the new PCM is installed. Note: If you are just updating the existing PCM calibration with an update calibration, you must select the MODULE REPROGRAMMING function (not Programmable Module Installation).… Read More
