2021 f250 tcu issue sync 1 to sync 3 with nav

In need of help. I recently upgraded from the 4in sync 1 to 8in sync 3 adding nav. I have a 2021 f250 with a 2021 apmi programmed with nav from a 3rd party. It will not connect to the tcu. Ford is telling me the last time my tcu was online was the day I did the swap. I even sent back the apmi to the company they issued a new apmi with the latest update . Same issue. Wont connect to forpass. I’ve done resets and even reset the tcu with forscan.
I have forscan. I’m not as advanced as most of you guys but I need help getting this connected to ford pass. It just spins and says activation pending. Obviously the apmi and tcu are not working together.
I did have to upgrade to the gps antenna. Can anyone help me?

SYNC Region: NA

Navigation Variant: Nav

Manufacturer Year: MY20

Install Type: OEM Replacement

Old SYNC Version: 1

Do you have a error message, if so what is it?

Update Method: Official Ford

What is in 7D0-02-02 xxxx Xxxx xxxx ?
It sounds like they didn’t set the bit for there being a TCU.

Fixed it
Changed tcu 754-18-01 0204 to 0304
And ford pass connected!

Yep. That tells the TCU about the authorization policy. It needs to match the Sync platform installed.
