In Topic: Mk 2.5 Pats Bypass

Everything is possible but in my opinion the amount of work involved to get it working is not worth it.

About 10 Years ago as an experiment I converted an Audi flip key to work with my focus MK1. It took me a lot of time and effort but in the end it was fully functional.

The new design flip key officially can not be opened at all. After assembly the housing is glued and opening the housing without damaging it is very difficult. The only part of this key that can be removed is the cover which is needed to change the battery.

I have both the old design flip key and the new design flip key (both defective ones) in front of me and the circuit board of the old design flip key will never fit into the new design housing.


This will only work if you have the skills to design your own circuit board with the dimensions of the new design flip key and the electronics of the old design flip key.

Note that there are several different versions of this part. Cars with Keyless Entry and/or a factory fitted reverse camera do have a different part than cars without.

This part is available from ford in chrome, primer and painted in body color. The chrome part is the most expensive and costs approximately €225,-. The cheapest version costs approximately €150,-.

The old and the new design flip keys are internally completely different.

The old design flip key has a 2-piece design housing. This key has a key part (which contains the PATS chip and the keyblade) and a remote control part (which contains the battery and the remote control circuit board).

The new design flip key has a 1-piece design housing. This key has a much larger circuit board which contains both the PATS chip and the remote control circuitry.

The tail light wiring of the MK2.5 is different from the MK2. The MK2 does not have the grey connectors.

The easiest solution is to solder the MK2.5 tail light wiring loom directly to the MK2 wiring. The extra wire on the MK2 wiring is a ground wire. The MK2.5 tail light wiring loom does only have one ground wire which is connected to both bulb holders.
