Our 2012 Lincoln MKT has been in some kind of anti theft

Customer Question

HI, Our 2012 Lincoln MKT has been in some kind of anti
theft lock mode for the last 24 hours. It is in pristine
condition and has only 45000 miles on it. I have researched
this issue but have not come across a remedy to get it out of that lockdown and get it to start up again

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Unfortunately the only news is bad news on this, which may be why it has gone unanswered for so long. This requires the use of a dealer level scan tool to diagnose and if just the key memory is lost, reprogram it. There are no DIY workarounds for this
