    I too have had errors with PFCU not properly downloading transactions using one step update. This has happened for years, and I have gotten CC-502 and CC-503 errors. The standard response has been that this is an acknowledged problem and that there has been no solution as yet. In the last several weeks, I am no longer getting the 502 and 503 errors, and most of the time, Quicken is downloading SOME of the transactions from SOME of my accounts, but not all of them. I still have to go online and manually download the transactions that are missed. This same problem has started to appear with my Capital One accounts and several others. But because there is no error 502 or 503 error message, I have to look for another problem to leave a comment or start a new one. Long e-mail from Quicken CEO earlier this week talking about all the new bells and whistles. None of these matter to me, and I SO wish Quicken resources would be focused on making One step updates work as a first priority. I just downloaded R43-32. Not sure what is in it

    Not only can I not download my PenFed credit card account now, for many months, maybe a year, when I click on "have you changed your password?" (although I haven't) and continue to "troubleshoot", I get a message to sign in to BANK OF AMERICA to "connect your accounts to Quicken". This is insane!

    @MarieBaumann: Sort of off-topic for this thread, but I had a similar problem a while back; the solution was unpleasant.  My data file was corrupted beyond the ability of File Verification or Super Verification to fix and I ended up having to create a new file and spend a day repopulating it (I did say it was unpleasant). 

    For debugging and problem isolation I would recommend you create a new file, add only your PenFed account, setup online access and try to download.  If that works I'd next add your BoA account and repeat the process.  If that works then your original file is corrupt and Quicken will offer you no help in repairing that file.  

    You might try the process here, and you should follow those instructions rigidly, to make a copy of your corrupt file.  The instructions there seem to be for an older Quicken menu structure.  You'll need to re-enable all your online accesses for this "copied" file.

    My last successful download from Penfed was the morning of October 7th. When I do one-step-update after that the process shows connecting and updating, until OSU is complete, then the results totally skip any results for Penfed. Going to the data file for Penfed on Quicken shows last update of 10/7. Nothing downloaded. No condition code reported. Nothing displaying Penfed on the OAU Summary.

    OAU = OSU

    I am using Quicken for MAC and a familiar issue has reoccurred. Download Error (-30) Invalid Credentials. I then disconnected download connectivity for all 6 of my accounts and then closed Quicken. I then attempted to reestablish connectivity but received the same invalid credential error. I can use the same credential and use the Internet to connect to Penfed. This seems to happen every month.

    I'm unable to update any of my Penfed accounts. Keep getting CC-503 error telling me incorrect user name or password.
    Able to log into the Penfed website with no problem.

    Also, why when you click "reset account" does it say "no data will be deleted", but when I try to reset and it fails, and I try to close the reset dialog, I get a pop-up that says "are you sure you want to cancel?"

    My only way to exit the dialog is to click ok, which DELETES MY LOGIN INFO! I thought no data will be deleted?

    The only other way to get out of the cancel dialog, is to use task manager to quit the program.

    Why does it delete my login info if it can't connect?

    I reported this to PenFed and got the usual canned "we do not support third-party downloads" page. I pushed back. They don't have to "support" it; they just have to not mess it up.

    Back in September I received this response which contradicts the normal response. 

    Due to an internal error, our IT team temporarily disabled aggregator third party access to PenFed Online. We regret you were unable to download your transactions through Quicken during this time. However, we can confirm as of September 7th, you should now be able to use Quicken again.

    I responded just let us know when things happen so customers and Quicken don’t try to troubleshoot something PFCU knows there’s an issue.

    For those of you who have been long suffering because of the instability of the PenFed server and only use the PenFed CC be aware that Wells Fargo now offers a 2% cash back on all purchases and so far it has downloaded flawlessly.

    Over and over again, problems with error CC-502 or CC-503. It seems that somehow the discussions have been closed, but there has been no resolution of this problem. So I am back to manual entry of transactions. We received the ongoing discussions from a bot, I assume, saying that this was a known problem and was being worked, but it has been there now for years, and I have no sense that anyone up the Quicken supervisory chain knows about this and no one is actively working it. This morning, when I got cc-503, I clicked on Fix it. Did that, then it asked me if password had been changed, I clicked no, then it said update now, I did that, it said "Success" but it did not, has not and will not download transactions.

    Pentagon Federal Credit Union Not updating AGAIN error 503 login info incorrect, This seems to be a monthly problem with Quicken. I've tried resetting one of my PenFed accounts with no luck, I'm hopping the fix doesn't take Quicken 3 weeks to fix this time.

    Quicken update has had continual issues with Pentagon Federal. I recommend that Quicken and PenFed have a high-level sit down to discuss the problem. Given the length of time this has been an issue, it is poor customer services on both sides.
