Vehicle security access status denied


Recommended Posts


I did sort of ask about this in another thread but i figured i should start a new one. I had a laptop die while flashing the other night, i re-flashed successfully and the car fired up fine. The next morning the car would crank fine but would not fire. I fired up forscan and am getting output from all the sensors but i also noticed the vehicle security access status in forscan has denied as the status. what is the possibility that i have cooked the PCM? Also tried a second key in case my main key just died but still the same outcome. The smart shield light on the dash does go out when i turn the key just not sure about the status denied.

I'm Emmanuel. Thank you for accepting me.  I found PCMTEC  when trying to find a solution to a 2008 Ford Focus Cmax TDCI 1.6L  VEHICLE SECURITY ACCESS STATUS DENIED.

The engine cranks but does not start. Two keys programmed successfully, module initialization done, all with ForScan .

PCM Live data indicates: vehicle security access status denied.  The injector pump supplies fuel to the injectors but the injectors are not supplying fuel to start engine. 

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.
