    I know a few people want a guide on how to do this so here goes

     

    You will need a laptop running windows and a copy of the programme called Forscan With an Extended Licence

    You also need a compatible cable like this one

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Modified-ELM327-USB-Ford-Elmconfig-Focccus-Forscan-Focus-Smax-Mondeo-Kuga/223210794515?hash=item33f8666e13:g:CXYAAOSwlY5bv393:rk:2:pf:0

     

    You need to connect your car to forscan using the cable and select the following menu

    Make sure your cars battery is fully charged as this can cause issues with the program once the screen prompts you to open the SBL it should give you the option to make a back up i suggest you do in case  anything goes wrong when loading

    Once you hit continue forscan will load all the modules in wait until this has finished this should take 60 seconds IGNORE ALL THE LIGHTS AND CHIMNES COMING FROM THE DASHBOARD  this is normal  follow the messages on screen if it prompts you to switch the ignition off   do so you will then be greeted with this menu

     

    From the drop down menu at the top left you may need to select engineering mode 2 for the keyless menu to appear

    On the column above look where it says (without keyless entry and start) your RS should say WITH KEYLESS ENTRY AND START double click and a menu should appear you need to select with KEYLESS START make sure you select the correct one

    Once you have done this Hit the WRITE Button at the bottom on the screen forscan will load all the modules again it may as you to cycle the ignition off

    Because all the modules are loaded this can cause some hidden dtc to be stored  You can clear them using forscan

    I would suggest you only attempt this is you are familiar with forscan

    Hopefully this helps a few people and protects there RS

    I’m not familiar with how ghost operates Once the ignition is off does the ghost system protect the OBD port?

    Managed to finally get around to do this and can confirm this works.

    Its a shame that on older RS models the user is unable to disable keyless entry using the menu.

    Adam.  If you didn’t save your previous configuration you’ll need to check the “As Built” data for your ST.  That should give you the configuration you should use to revert back.

    Good luck
