In the past I have programmed a RKE FOB the manual way with 8 times on and off of ignition switch, then I used the FOB to shut off alarm.

Do you have any working remotes? use them if possible. If not unlock vehicle with the code on the key pad that should deactivate the perimeter alarm.

Try this, connect your equipment and then turn the key on, let it stay on until the alarm times out. Then do what you need to do.

I am assuming you are using IDS / FJDS what version? I know that when starting out to gain access I see that message and then proceed to the 10 minute wait, are you able to get the 10 minute wait to start and then have the issue? Let us know

I am using ids version 118.04, I contacted ford and they recommended using version 118.01a. I tried that with the same results. I am unable to get to the 10 minute timer in pats. I belive it is due to the perimiter alarm not disarming. Thanks sorry I cant get back to everyone right away as I am very busy on other vehicles.

Unlock on the driver's door switch, Key off to run 8 times in ten seconds ending in run, locks should cycle. press remote buttons to learn it, locks should cycle.

There are some models that require BCM replacement if all keys are lost…

If the Fobs operate they should be able to disable the perimeter alarm with them. If the alarm is not activated then that is likely not the issue.

We finally were able to program the keys to start the vehicle. We disconnected the battery for 10 minutes to power everything down, we then began to perform the body control module programming. The steps were as follows: 1. perform PMI (program module install) 2. Program keys by installing first key in ignition and turn to run, wait about 6 seconds and do the same to the second key (locks will…
