All Focccus does is rewrite the Central Car Config which pushes options out to various modules. Thankfully Ford has moved away from this, instead storing the settings independently in each module in newer car lines.

I don't like CCC and try not to mess with it even with dealer tools. On later cars it's not a concern because you can only flub up the specific module you edit, not the whole car.
Correct. When switched to "0", MyKey was no longer an option & had no restrictions. Back to "1" and it added MyKey back as if it never had MyKey activated.

It would be nice to use that feature of the software myself, but I have 1 key and want the max of 4 so I need to have someone with the right equipment set me up properly and they want good money to do so. Also need to cut these security keys and that requires a specific milling machine.

Sigh... It's just money right?

The moment I say that I don't need more than 1 key is the day I'll regret saying it. I have a friend that works at a Ford Dealership so he gets a discounted price on the blade but the programming price doesn't very much.

Turns out the carkeysexpress company doesn't have the right OBDII computers that can access the titanium models. All he could do was cut my key blanks.

Do you think it's worth it to try this focccus program? How much are the parts?

I'm weighing my options. I have to get more keys added and I hate that ford is charging an arm and a leg to perform this service. IMO it should be a manufacturer lifetime freebie.

If you're talking the keyless access style, and with a Titanium you prob. are, the fancy fob programming is in another category.

Sounds like you just learned that.

From what im understanding your problem is. Is your mykey is set to a low speed. You can change all that if you plug your key where a normal key would go. Pop the cover off, then go into mykey settings. Youll find it.

I only have one key for the car. Maybe it was like that when I bought it. Don't know, just been living with it for so long I've forgotten. The key I have apparently isn't an Admin key as it won't allow me to turn it off. So I guess I'm dealer bound? ...... which means I'm just living with it because ZERO chance I'm paying the dealer $100 for 30 seconds to clear it.

I used it to remove it. Worked fine. Still only have one key and no more Admin.
I'm buying the hacked obd2 module and will download the software. Any chance you can walk me through the process of disabling mykey? I'm having a tough time finding tutorials.

It's a push button ignition system, and I only was given one key fob when I bought the car. The other admin transponder is floating around the world somewhere, so I can't reset mykey without a hack or pay the dealership to do it.

What hacked OBD2 module? You don't need no "hacked" module.
