Autel MaxiSYS Pro MS908P Key Erase Issue on 2000 Ford Focus (fixed)

I write this blog to share my problem about Autel MaxiSYS Pro MS908P key erasure on 2000 ford focus and its solution with you.

MS908P

Vehicle model and year:

2000 Ford Focus Z-Tech

Diagnostic tool used:

Autel MaxiSYS MS908P

Issue description:

I intended to replace the PCM in my vehicle. With followed all the instruction for key erasure, the MaxiSYS MS908P seemed to freeze at the 9 second make on the task bar.

Reasons:

The engine told me that I could only program new third key with having 2 already programmed keys, which meant that I couldn’t program new key if I did not have 2 working keys.

Solution:

1 Download the beta version V6.12.10 to have a test.

2 Try to program key manually. The process bar will appear for 10s after key erasure. Please ignition off and program it as followed:

Turn the ignition key to position 0

Cycle key1 in the ignition from OFF to RUN for at least 3 seconds

Cycle key2 in the ignition from OFF to RUN for at least 3 seconds.
Cycle key1 in the ignition from OFF to RUN for at least 3 seconds.
Two keys are programmed now.

  • AUTEL INTRODUCES AUTOLINK AL609 (ABS+OBDII diagnostic tool)

    AUTEL INTRODUCES AUTOLINK AL609 (ABS+OBDII diagnostic tool) “A great way to get bang for the buck out of just one tool!” The new AutoLink AL609 from Autel is a top-of-the-line scan tool that combines OBDII diagnostics with ABS diagnostics to give service technicians the ability to do the “side” work in one tool.   Nowadays, a scan tool has become a necessity for brake work on many late-model vehicles. ABS codes and self-tests require additional software that goes beyond what is needed to read and interact with OBD2 system data. On most professional-grade scan tools, ABS software is still offered as an extra-cost, add-on module or upgrade. Or, the ABS software is packaged with a dedicated ABS tester or scan tool.   Now Autel integrates ABS diagnostic capabilities into OBDII code reader, which is handy for reading and clearing ABS & OBD codes. Though targeted primarily to the DIY market, professionals can also use this tool for quick diagnostic checks.   Autel AL609 offers you a more affordable option to handle a broad range of makes and models comparing with the Factory scan tools. We provide coverage on more than 30 domestic, European and Asian models up to model year 2013.   To learn more about AL609, please visit: http://www.auteltech.com/autelcms/Code%20Readers&Code%20Scanners/507.jhtml   or talk to an Autel representative.   About Autel:   Located in Shenzhen, China, Autel specializes in development, manufacture and marketing of diagnostic tools, equipment and accessories in the automotive aftermarket. Autel’s products and services include basic OBD2 code readers, full-featured OBD2 scan tools, videoscopes, special application service tools and comprehensive diagnostic analysis system MaxiDAS. Since our foundation, we have been committed to creating maximum long-term value to our customers by providing quality-assured, easy-to-use, cost-effective and innovative products and solutions.
