How to use Autel IM608 Reset Ford Parameter after PCM replaced
2008 Ford E350 PCM replaced Parameter Reset by using Autel IM608 Scan Tool Procedure
Your vehicle requires what Ford calls a “parameter reset” to properly program the keys.This requires a scan tool with the Parameter Reset Function. Just erasing the keys will not program the keys correctly – if your locksmith only erases keys, the vehicle will only start with the original computer. The parameter reset lets the PATS module know that there is a new PCM/engine computer in the car,and to allow the keys to be read by both the PATS module and the replacement PCM.
