TCU activation problems

I gave a crack at installing a TCU into my 2016 fusion w/ sync 3 and I ran into some problems but got them resolved (Gateway Module swap and proper harness configuration). The TCU does show up in forscan and I’ve corrected the asbuilt as well as installing the correct firmware to get the module to activate, got it to go into “Factory Mode” with a bit flip and flipped that same bit back and got to “Wait for Authorize” but the connectcar SDK site is down and ive tried every other way to get the activate button on ford pass (even left it over night). The APIM is instructed to see the TCU. My biggest issue is just the activation, any help would be great
