2011 f150 xlt: 80 mph..I disable mykey

Resolved Question:

I bought a new Ford 2011 f150 xlt yesterday. However, I fooled around and enabled mykey, which limits my volume on audio and limits my speed to 80 mph. Can I disable mykey?

Had to repost it so the steps were numbered correctly

Customer:

What is run position?

Chuck :

on position,just turn key until accessories are active

Customer:

ok

Customer:

I feel dumb. What is admin key? Is setup located on the ok button?

Chuck :

After a MyKey® has been programmed, the remaining standard key(s) (the key[s] that is not programmed with the MyKey® feature) is referred to as an "administrator key(s)" or "admin" key(s). There must always be at least one admin key.
