Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose
The way you worded your post makes it sound like you had no keys and had one made and attempted to program it and with the key in the run position the theft light flashes rapid. If that is all true then one issue is it takes 2 keys. With no keys you can not program just one. You have to enter the 10 minute security access via scan tool, then erase all previous key codes then program 2 chipped keys to the vehicle.

I am in my upper 30's, have a wife and 2 sons. I farm, fish, hunt, build, and coach youth soccer. I work on anything with an engine, been to many schools and classes through my 12 years with the dealership to get trained and certified.
