2014 Ford Fusion SE 2.5L (7) 6-spd

Can the im 508 program coded pats or pull the pin code on this vehicle. My autel 908 asks for the pin​. ​The im508 says its accessing security like its timed then fails to program the key.I am using a XHorse super remote flip key the remote is generated and chip burned to a 49​. ​Not sure if the problem is the key or the autel.

I attempted to do one with my IM608 but to perform the “parameter reset” I needed to have a NAtSF license and a code. Had to send to dealer because I don’t do enough to justify the purchase of the license.

I tried it on a car whose computer had been replaced with a used one and in the end it turned out to be a computer incompatible with vehicle.

Unless your tool can bypass the PIN,it requires a LSID & log in with IDS.

Should work. If it’s bladed, Parameter Reset Will work. Will not work on Push to Start. If you replaced a module, might need programming first before you can add 2 keys. Make sure you have the correct chip as well. 2 keys minimum unless adding. Correction, It can actually do push to start as well Parameter Reset.

That’s different. Some older fords you could do PR or Erase all keys when replacing PCM WITHOUT PROPERLY WRITING VIN AKA PROGRAMMING. Blank path or PMI. Depends on the situation or year/modem. Newer models require it or It won’t start if you try PR/AKL

Yeah I was very surprised when I ran into it, seeing how autel says update 3.6 has parameter reset for … fusion. Update: I update im508, not the ford app, but the system app and it worked. Im508 can do parameter reset on fusion 2014, coded PATS.

My wife has a 2019 Edge, had no problem with the 608 to add a key. Key was purchased online.

Hi, I would start with a factory ford key. I have programmed keys to this vehicle with no problem with the IM608.
