Launch X431 Configure & Initialize Ford PATS Passive Anti Theft System

Some FORD models(Europe) with timed coding are equipped with Passive Anti Theft System(short for PATS).

And for more Launch X431 Test Case,check here:How to use Launch X431

PATS diagnosis consists of the following three options:

1.Ignition Key Erase

2.Ignition Key Programming 3.Module Initialization

1)If new keys are added, it is enough to perform “Ignition Key Programming”function.

2)If engine ECU or Immo. ECU replaced, all above options must all be performed.

1.Diagnose:Select“Calling system”menu(See Figure 1),and wait for 1-2 minutes.

Then the Vehicles Specification screen displays (See Figure 2).

Launch - X431 - Configure -1

2.Select“PCM”menu(See Figure 3)and “Passive anti theft system functions” in the “SPECIAL FUNCTION” menu(See Figure 4).

Launch - X431 - Configure -2

3.When selecting “Passive anti theft system functions”, it will display as Figure5,then perform as the following order: first, Ignition Key Erase,second, Ignition Key Programming,last, Module Initialization.

Launch - X431 - Configure -3

1.Ignition Key Erase

Select“Ignition Key Erase”menu with the hints displayed(See Figure6):This procedure will erase all stored keys from the PATS system memory. Once completed you will need to use the Ignition Key Programming option to program a minimum of 2 new keys before the PATS system will operate correctly.
Launch - X431 - Configure -4

Touch “OK”, then appears hint information as Figure 7:You will be required to connect the diagnostic tester to the vehicle for[12] minutes before security access is allowed.

Launch - X431 - Configure -5

Touch “OK” button,information display as Figure8:Gaining security access: 11 Min 56 Sec
Launch - X431 - Configure -6

During 12 minutes, hint information appears as Figure9:The following procedure will erase all known keys. It is important to have two keys available to program after this procedure as the vehicle will not start before two keys have been learned,Are two PATS keys available?

Launch - X431 - Configure -7

This is not useless and the grayed out protocols are not really a problem.

And Ksuite 2.47 is even better with Kess firmware v2 5.028.   Work with simos18 very good.

If you don’t have a good Kess fw 5.028, firmware 5.017  is the best online option for you. it’s tested by real pros.

Piwis 3 Compare With Piwis Tester 2

As the VXDIAG Porsche PIWIS 3 for Porsche diagnostic & programming released, most client inquiry for the Piwis 3 to replace Piwis tester ii for Porsche new models. Some client asks what’s the difference between Piwis Tester II & Piwis 3. whether the Piwis II work with the Piwis 3 software? Below CnAutotool.com share one client opinion for this.
Purchase Piwis 2 or Piwis 3?

 

It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.

First of all, the Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.

Originally designed for the VW ODIS system, the VAS6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Is it worth to purchase Piwis 3 replace Piwis 2 now? Can the Porsche Piwis 2 compatible with Piwis 3 Software?

This answer for the question of whether Piwis 3 software can work with Piwis II Samtec HSX Interface from Piwis-Tester-2.com?

Secondly, I thought the Piwis 3 for Porsche went cheap. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]

At the same time, there is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI from Piwis-Tester-2.com, to work with Piwis 3.

Unfortunately, their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI. 2-3-4 thousand dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small operators.

They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as at the beginning of the Piwis 3 had.

They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]

Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi. This is Cars Fan’s money-making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.

Regards,

What Do the Piwis 3 updates replace Piwis 2?

Diagnostics application is used for communication with control units. You can search for, identify, code and control program units, read out the event memory, execute complex processes, change drive links and execute routines.

Guided fault finding (GFF) generates a test plan for a fault code. This test plan shows the best sequence for carrying out tests. GFF compiles a list of recommended tests, documents and wiring diagrams

Actual values/input signals functions display you the actual values and input signals of control units

Drive links/tests function displays the drive links of control units, allows you to change the parameters of these drive links and run test routines for individual control units

Maintenance/repairs function group – use this function to call up control unit-specific processes that cannot be implemented generically from the ODX data

Coding/programming function group – use this function to write coding values. Piwis 3 can code Values automatically or set manually. This function group includes (Automatic coding, Manual

coding, Customer-specific settings, and Factory settings) coding modes

A customer who orders Piws 2 with Piwis ii software installed Panasonic CF-30 laptop full set from us as follows:

Hello, we have been ordered the Piwis tester II for one year ago and it’s been working very well up until a few days ago when the interface started to fail to connect sometimes. We couldn’t send it off to repair because Piwis tester 2 would take too long so we took the end cover off and found the data cable from the port was cut.

We couldn’t send it off to repair because Piwis 2 would take too long so we took the end cover off and found the data cable from the port was cut. Please find attached photos of the broken cable.

How to setup Printer on Auro IM600

Q: Anyone know how to setup printer on Auro Otosys IM600/ Autel MaxiIM IM608?

A: Same process as Autel MaxiSys series scanners. Check step-by-step instructions below.

 

How to enable IM600/IM608 wireless printing?

Autel scan tools cannot sent files directly to a wireless printer.

Instead, you need to install PC Suite software onto a computer which the scan tool will use as a gateway to print.

Install the Maxi PC Suite from the Autel

Download thew new Maxi PC Suite from Autel official website

Autel Printer App system requirement:

A computer connected to the same network (wired or wireless) as the Autel unit
Win7 Extractor or WinRAR (The Autel file is downloaded in a .ZIP format and must be extracted)
A restart is required after installation

The drivers for the Autel j2534 and PC Link for wireless printing are included in the Maxi PC suite.

Go to Supports & Updates->Firmware & Download-> Update Client-> Download Here
