Here is a quick guide on how to program a new key to a Ford Mustang Mach E year 2021 using vxdiag J2534 interface and FDRS software program.
VXDIAG VCX NANO Ford J2534 passthru
Ford FDRS online subscription
2 keys to be programmed
Here we have a new key and the factory proximity smart key
You need ford vcm2 or other compatible tools for FDRS.
There is a list of them on Ford’s website.
You might need a dealer login that case obviously a dealer can do it or a dealer tech.
I am logged in as a dealer here. Check: How to set up FDRS with VXDIAG VCX NANO for Ford?
All I’ve done is plugged it in and I hit Read vehicle, it’s been reading for around 10 seconds.
it’s pulling every single module in the car and this car is i believe it has 37 modules.
It looks at code and checks software versions in every module.
the car doesn’t have to be on for this but if it’s not it won’t actually read all the modules.
We just read some of them. I think it’s about half maybe a little more read with the car off and the rest need to require the car to be on.
What we’re going to do is i’m going to go ahead and put this key in the backup slot right here.
We’re in it’s basically showing if we have any codes and it’s showing all the part numbers here.
So anything in orange we have what they call DTC’s which are just a stored code.
It shows some information on the side here which is also an oasis.
Go ahead and continue it shows your battery voltage right here. By the way at the bottom right which is helpful again, it shows codes here shows all the tests you
can do here so what we’re going to go ahead and do is just type in the search bar in the top right when type PATS passive anti-theft system
we’re gonna hit download. FDRS downloads all modules individually.
It doesn’t take very long usually though if you have a good WiFi connection.
It’s gonna connect to the car real quick.
Check how many keys are programmed and then you just do what we want to do or
whether it asks what we want to do count, erase, program, lost or initialization if you replace it
We count keys, it tells us there are actually two keys.
Here we select Program Key
Put it in the backup slot we already did
It’s in the bcm lights flash that means it’s programmed
Now it says three keys and takes this new key out
It’s working you can hear the door locks and here’s the first key.
See they both work now so perfect that’s how quick it is for a dealer to program a key.
Super fast and enjoy.
