Hi carguy 149, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try and assist you.
Both codes pinpoint test say to:
1) INSTALL A NEW ENCODED IGNITION KEY
2) INSTALL A NEW PATS TRANSCEIVER
If those do not fix than replace the PCM
NOTE: Large metallic objects, electronic devices on the key chain that can be used to purchase gasoline or similar items, or a second key on the same key ring as the PATS ignition key may cause vehicle starting problems and record DTCs under certain conditions. If a fault cannot be identified, examine the customer's key ring for such objects or devices.
If present, inform the customer that they need to keep these objects from touching the PATS ignition key while starting the engine. These objects and devices cannot damage the PATS ignition key, but can cause a momentary concern if they are too close to the key during engine start.
If a concern occurs, turn ignition OFF and restart the engine with all other objects on the key ring held away from the ignition key.
Check to make sure the encoded ignition key used by the customer is a Ford approved encoded ignition key (Rotunda is the only approved encoded ignition key).
NOTE: Check to make sure the customer and new encoded ignition keys are Ford approved, encoded PATS ignition keys. Unapproved PATS keys do not always operate correctly over different temperature ranges (Rotunda is the only approved encoded ignition key).
NOTE: When a new PCM is installed, the encoded ignition keys must be reprogrammed.
