If you have PATS, you will need to swap it with a like system and then have the vehicle programmed at the Ford dealer or a shop that has a "FORD IDS" diagnostic tool. This toll is needed to program the dash cluster to the PATS system so it can read the keys. It will also need to be programmed to the PCM so it can give the proper miles and speed.
