Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

To program an additional key without an IDS scanner, two programmed keys must be available. If less than two programmed keys are available then the key will need to be programmed at the dealer using a Ford IDS scanner. Some locksmiths also have Ford IDS scanners. Procedure below for programming additional keys with 2 programmed keys available.

Key Programming — Program a Key Using Two Programmed Keys

NOTE: This procedure works only if 2 or more programmed keys are available. If 2 programmed keys are not available, refer to Key Programming Using Diagnostic Equipment in this section.

NOTE: This procedure works only if the customer spare key programming is enabled. If customer spare key programming is disabled, refer to Key Programming — Enable/Disable Spare Key Programming or Key Programming Using Diagnostic Equipment in this section.

  1. Insert the first programmed Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) key into the ignition and turn the key from the OFF position to the RUN position (maintain the key in the RUN position for approximately 6 seconds).
  2. Turn the first key to the OFF position and remove the key from the ignition.
  3. Within 10 seconds of turning the key to the OFF position, insert a second programmed PATS key into the ignition and turn the key from the OFF position to the RUN position (maintain the key in the RUN position for approximately 6 seconds).
  4. Turn the second key to the OFF position and remove the key from the ignition.
  5. NOTE: The doors lock and then unlock to confirm that each Integrated Keyhead Transmitter (IKT) is programmed.
  6. Within 10 seconds of turning the second key to the OFF position, insert the new, unprogrammed PATS key into the ignition and turn the key from the OFF position to the RUN position (maintain the key in the RUN position for approximately 6 seconds).
  7. If it is desired to program additional key(s) (up to a total of 8 keys can be programmed), repeat Steps 1 - 5 for each additional key.

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.

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.
