2015 Ford Focus SE 2.0L (2 Flex) 5-spd (MTX75) — 1FADP3F22FL329500

Hello diag​.​net Good afternoon. I am trying to perform a parameter rest on this Focus. The scan tool faults every time I try to log into Motorcraft. I have a current Motorcraft subscription. Is IDS having problems? Is there an issue with Nastf or my account? Does it need Internet Explorer?

Are we certain that the 2015 Ford Focus is an online OASIS/Motorcraft PATS function vehicle? I just replaced a PCM in one of those a few weeks ago and it was the normal 10 minute PATS lockout in IDs for the parameter reset.

OK. So that is an interesting list - Ford must have a LOT of unicorns. Not only did I perform a parameter reset on a 2015 Focus with “regular” IDS PATS a few weeks ago as noted above, I also did a 2017 Explorer the same way on Friday and a 2016 Mustang on Tuesday. Both were PCM replacements. I'm pretty sure the Escape I did a PCM replacement on a few weeks ago was also a 2017. The last time…

Thank you everyone For the help. the screen right before the first screenshot I posted asked for user ID and country, I am used to entering my NASTF credentials right away, this was new to me. I did not post the previous screen to the first screenshot because I had my user ID for NASTF typed in. I ended up calling NASTF and they quickly set me straight. I had to enter my Motorcraft user ID and…
