Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables ) if you cant reach them, just disconnect negative one

2- Hold cables Together for 20 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 10 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 7 months ago.

the 2nd key will be useful in case the key you have went bad and not sending the rf signal necessary to allow start up

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Did not work. Having other key brought to me.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 7 months ago.

ok

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 7 months ago.

if the second key does not work, you will need to have it towed and scan the anti theft module using a ford scanner or equivalent to see what failed in the anti theft system.

a hood switch, door switch, receiver module , antenna etc..

I m sorry I wish there is another way, now days the anitheft module has to send a signal to the pcm( engine computer to allow start up ) with out these 2 module seeing each other and several other perimeters have to be met to start and there is not like a fuse or relay that you can pull out to deactivate .
