With a ford scan tool if you run by the dealership and just ask them to clear it out real fast they will usually do it for free, at least we do at my dealership, if it starts and runs fine and they try to charge you for this service, honestly i just wouldn't worry about it because it wont effect anything just having the code stored in memory.

Expert:  Andy I replied 7 years ago.

when the new keys are programmed it will cancel the code. Right now it sees nothing programmed so it sets the code. if you have any other questions i will check my post tomorrow cause i have to get some sleep, but if this explains then just click the green accept button, Thanks
