Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.A FORD dealer will generally only work on FORD equipment on something like this. They dont have any diagrams on aftermarket stuff and they have no protection from ford if them unhooking your aftermarket equipment causes issues that cost them a bunch of money.Nobody can or will disable your built in security system. The truck wouldnt run if you pull out all of the modules that run the truck/security system.Your best course of action is to either remove the aftermarket system yourself or get someone else to do it then either figure out the security system yourself or get someone else to do it.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
