Question about 2001 Ford Focus
I have no keys for my focus now ,it,s waiting at the dealer but keys are on back order,, I would like to completely disabled the anti theft so regular keys can be used,, no chip needed
Yes its possible to disable the alarm immobiliser ,remove the ECU unit .then solder in a 12v supply from the on side of ignition,find a suitable connection in the wiring harness feed and solder to a switching transistor on the side of unit with a heat sink to the base connection of a transistor that controls the feed to another three transistors ,starter motor earth for relay,fuel pump earth relay,and ignition ,no relay and away you go location of transistors iam not saying as i dont wont the car theives reading it ,but its as easy as falling off a log when you know the colour of the wires, pin numbers and a magnifying glass soldering iron .took me hours to follow the the connections in the fuse box separating the two halves to follow circuit,tracing wires back to ECU then following printed circuit but i have done it .SO DEALERS EAT YOUR HEART OUT ANOTHER FOOD WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT JOB LOST .going to try it out on a dammed renault when i get time.Also sell the details over the internet ???? no i dont think so iam just glad i have pissed off the local dealers that wanted 200€

I just replaced the computer on my 2002 ford focus and now it doesnt start someone told me that i needed both keys to reset the anti-theft is it true and how do you reprogram the anti-theft system

It would be impossible to disable the security feature without a programmer, the entire idea of the system is that no one without the proper key can start the vehicle, there is a program called "sniper" that can disable PATS (the security system in your car, Passive Anti Theft System) but it is costly, another idea to try is to call local lock smiths in your area, it is possible that one may have your key in stock even though the dealer does not,
