Ford Credit - Unable to reactivate a deactivated Account

After deactivating my Ford Credit account in an attempt to refresh it, there is no "Online/reactivate" tab in the Edit/Delete option. Also get a CC-501 error when attempting to add the account back as new.

    It has been a week now, any update on getting issue with Ford Credit fixed? I am having the same issue. I even tried to set up a new account which failed....

    I'd also like an answer to the first part of my question. Why is there no "Online" tab so I can reactivate the account I deactivated in trying to fix it?

    For whatever it's worth and actual problems with loan company's download services aside ... I would not bother attempting to activate any loan or mortgage account for downloading.  (Not discussing LOC or HELOC accounts here)

    An online-connected loan or mortgage account does NOT have a transaction register. All data shown in the account come from whatever information the bank downloads to you ... if this process works at all.

    As a result of being connected, the scheduled payment transaction reminder cannot transfer the amount of principal paid into the (non existent) account register and must use a category, usually something like Loan:Principal, instead. The category seems to vary with the Loan Type you selected when creating the loan account in Quicken.

    Effective with Quicken Windows 2018+
    you can deactivate an online-connected loan account and regain full control over your transaction register.  However, you should still review the Scheduled Reminder (or Memorized Payee List entry) associated with the monthly loan payments to ensure they now transfer Principal to the loan account register and not to a Category.

    Thank you. I'll just do manual entry on the account and not worry about downloading transactions.

    I am having the same issue with Ford Credit. It began on 17-Feb-2021 (as was evidenced by my last successful download date). So I took the vain attempt to de-activate and re-activate the account. The de-activate works great. However, Ford will not reconnect and gives you a new error of "Unable to connect to the service. Try again in a few minutes."

    Any update from Quicken on resolving the issue with Ford Credit?

    When trying to add Ford Credit, it still comes back with "The financial institution you are trying to add is NOT YET SUPPORTED".

    I am having a similar problem trying to add a new Ford credit account. The error says "Sorry. We've encountered an error. (It's not your fault.)" And below says "Quicken is having trouble connecting to Ford credit." Meanwhile, I am on the Ford credit website looking at my account.
