    For years I used an Auto Enginuity code reader and a laptop for my trucks which also provided cylinder balance readings to locate bad coils and key programming for PATS keys. Well it's the end of the road for the scanner.

    Can anyone suggest a replacement code scanner that will also program PATS keys, read keyless code combos and provide Ford-specific diagnostic codes?

    Thanks much for the help!

    Forscan will do the job but you have to erase all keys from memory and reprogram them. I really don't like that concept. Not how my New Generation Star scanner or my AutoEnginuity worked which allowed me to add a key.

    I just added a key to my wife’s 2012 focus without deleting the others. Wouldn’t think it’d be different for the expy, but don’t know for sure.
