Service Procedure

NOTE: During the new 3G to 4G modem upgrade, the Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) scan tool must be at software level 126.04 or higher and connected to the internet.

1. Start a new IDS session for the vehicle.

NOTE: Do not use a previous session for the VIN. If the IDS asks to select a prior session, choose None of the Above.

2. Perform a programmable module installation (PMI) on the telematics control unit (TCU).

3. For 2017 C-Max Energi vehicles, check for a later version of instrument panel cluster (IPC) software and install the latest software if available.

4. Turn the ignition key to the ON position.

5. Access valet mode in the center display screen, Settings > Vehicle > Valet Mode, or Settings > Valet Mode.

6. Enable (turn on) valet mode, when prompted, enter universal PIN 3681. Repeat the same PIN as necessary.

7. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position, allowing the center display screen to fully power down.

8. Turn the ignition key to the ON position.

9. Disable (turn off) valet mode.

(1). To disable (turn off) valet mode, when prompted, enter universal PIN 3681. Repeat the same PIN as necessary.

10. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position, allowing the center display screen to fully power down.

11. Using the latest version of the FordPass or LincolnWay app, remove and then re-add the VIN to the mobile app.

NOTE: The same VIN can be used in multiple FordPass or LincolnWay devices. Any mobile device that might have previously had the VIN in the mobile app needs to have the VIN removed and then added back for proper remote functionality to return.

12. Select Allow when the pop-up appears on the center display screen. If no pop-up appears, repeat the previous steps to enable/disable valet mode.

13. Perform a remote lock/unlock and a remote start from the mobile app.
