I see, you DID get PAAK working on one phone at least, and are trying to add a second phone.PAAK works on my current phone when I activate it (I have a few times before having an issue then deactivating it). It's just the backup phone that it doesn't like (yet). I already did a factory reset on it, so it has a totally new FordPass install on it.
I don't want to reset the car settings again though. It's not worth starting over there. I'll play with it a little more, but we have 2 fobs now so it's nothing important anyway.
I installed the Android FordPass update yesterday, so maybe that fixes a few things. I'll probably try activate PAAK on my real phone again first and see how that goes first.
You definitely do NOT want to clear the Backup Start Code you were able to set with the first phone! You are just 'adding a phone' to be recognized as a Key by your MME. If the second phone doesn't get recognized, you can always use the 5-digit door code to get in, and then your BackupStartCode to run.
I have had some luck getting my phone to 'reconnect' and be recognized if I :
- turn off Bluetooth on the phone
- turn BT back on the phone when standing near MME
- open FordPass app on phone
- use FordPass app 'unlock' button to enter MME
- use FordPass app 'start' button to start MME
