Note:  The system is not compatible with non-Ford aftermarket remote start systems. Use of these systems may result in vehicle starting problems and a loss of security protection.
Note:  Metallic objects, electronic devices or a second coded key on the same key chain may cause vehicle starting problems if they are too close to the key when starting your vehicle. Prevent these objects from touching the coded key while starting your vehicle. Switch the ignition off, move all objects on the key chain away from the coded key and restart your vehicle if a problem occurs.
Note:  Do not leave a duplicate coded key in your vehicle. Always take your keys and lock all doors when leaving your vehicle.

The system helps prevent your vehicle from starting unless you use a coded key programmed to your vehicle. Using the wrong key may prevent your vehicle from starting. A message may appear in the information display.
If you are unable to start your vehicle with a correctly coded key, a malfunction has happened. A message may appear in the information display.
Automatic Arming
Your vehicle arms immediately after switching the ignition off.
Automatic Disarming
Switching the ignition on with a coded key disarms your vehicle.
Replacement Keys
Note:  Your vehicle comes equipped with two integrated keyhead transmitters or two intelligent access keys.
The integrated keyhead transmitter functions as a programmed ignition key that operates all the locks and starts your vehicle, as well as a remote control.
The intelligent access key functions as a programmed key that operates the driver door lock and activates the intelligent access with push button start system, as well as a remote control.
If your programmed transmitters or standard SecuriLock coded keys (integrated keyhead transmitters only) are lost or stolen and you do not have an extra coded key, you will need to have your vehicle towed to an authorized dealer. You need to erase the key codes from your vehicle and program new coded keys.
Store an extra programmed key away from your vehicle in a safe place to help prevent any inconveniences. See your authorized dealer to purchase additional spare or replacement keys.
Programming a Spare Integrated Keyhead Transmitter
Note:  You can program a maximum of eight coded keys to your vehicle. All eight can be integrated keyhead transmitters.
You can program your own integrated keyhead transmitter or standard SecuriLock coded keys to your vehicle. This procedure will program both the vehicle immobilizer keycode and the remote entry portion of the remote control to your vehicle.
Only use integrated keyhead transmitters or standard SecuriLock keys.
You must have two previously programmed coded keys and the new unprogrammed key readily accessible. See an authorized dealer to have the spare key programmed if two previously programmed coded keys are not available.
Read and understand the entire procedure before you begin.
  1. Insert the first previously programmed coded key into the ignition.
  1. Switch the ignition from off to on. Keep the ignition on for at least three seconds, but no more than 10 seconds.
  1. Switch the ignition off and remove the first coded key from the ignition.
  1. After three seconds but within 10 seconds of switching the ignition off, insert the second previously coded key into the ignition.
  1. Switch the ignition from off to on. Keep the ignition on for at least three seconds, but no more than 10 seconds.
  1. Switch the ignition off and remove the second previously programmed coded key from the ignition.
  1. After three seconds but within 10 seconds of switching the ignition off and removing the previously programmed coded key, insert the new unprogrammed key into the ignition.
  1. Switch the ignition from off to on. Keep the ignition on for at least six seconds.
  1. Remove the newly programmed coded key from the ignition.
If the key has been successfully programmed it will start your vehicle and operate the remote entry system (if the new key is an integrated keyhead transmitter).
If programming was not successful, wait 10 seconds and repeat Steps 1 through 8. If you are still unsuccessful, take your vehicle to an authorized dealer.
Programming a Spare Intelligent Access Key
Note:  You can program a maximum for four intelligent access keys to your vehicle.
You must have two previously programmed intelligent access keys inside your vehicle and the new unprogrammed intelligent access keys readily accessible. See an authorized dealer to have the spare key programmed if two previously programmed keys are not available.
Make sure that your vehicle is off before beginning this procedure. Make sure that you close all the doors before beginning and that they remain closed throughout the procedure. Perform all steps within 30 seconds of starting the sequence. Stop and wait for at least one minute before starting again if you perform any steps out of sequence.
Read and understand the entire procedure before you begin.
