John Mc :

Hi, I am John Mc, a Ford dealer tech. I hope I can help you quickly and accurately. One moment while I work on your problem.

John Mc :

Have you tried using your second key?

John Mc :

If you have and it still will not start you may have an issue with your anti theft system. This is not a very common problem on your year vehicle but if you have under 36000 miles this should be a warranty covered repair. If not there are only a few possibilities and it should not be too expensive. Unfortunately you need specialized equipment to do this work and only dealers have this type of equipment. You will need to have the truck towed to the dealer. Sorry for the bad news.
