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.
