Re: SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had similar intermitant problems - where the light may or may not flash - sometimes the car starts, others it doesn't. Ford wanted to replace the whole thing at much $$$.

As an experiment, I traced the starter solenoid activation wire I sliced in a new wire (whilst leaving the original still in place) the new wire I ran back into the passenger comparment, ran it through a toggle/spring type flip switch, then to the permenant live at the ignition switch - however any permentant live would do.

So now when my wife (it's her car) can't start the car, she switches on the ignition (without taking all the way round to start position) then momentarialy presses the toggle switch - and hey presto.

It's bit of a bind, but it works, and it was cheap (A$13.00)

Re: SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have a code 5 (5 flashes) which means that wire 1 (earth) or wire 3 (clock signal) is broken somewhere between the lock and the BCM. Check that pins at both end first. They are fine wires easily crushed when the steering column plastic covers are put back together.

Re: SMART LOCK problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Codes are:

2 : wrong data (1 or 2 codes)
3: all three codes wrong
4: open connector between BEM and lock
5: Ground or/and clock circuit broken between BEM and lock (pins 1 and /or 3)
6: Starter motor safety circuit inside BEM failed
8: Lock data error all codes wrong.

Yeah the Ford guy isn't going to tell you anything over the phone that could cause you to start working on it yourself and wreck something then start a lawsuit because their advice wrecked your vehicle. Try disconnecting the battery overnight and try it the next day. The reset might help.
