Cant get 2009 f150...

Cant get 2009 f150 out of valet mode

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Youtube searches.. I have 2 separate keyfobs. one has lock/unlock, the other is one-button remote start. according to the install instructions for that model (PDF on internet) 6 "chirps" on failed start means its in Valet mode. I haven't found instructions for turning off service/valet mode with that keyfob configuration

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Fob works in as much as the truck starts the remote start sequence... then chirps 6 times. If the fob was dead, I would get nothing. same results with two separate fobs

I want you to try below reset and re check again

make sure the abttery has 12 volts and holding first ,lets do that and we go from there

Master Reset

1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .

2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )

3- Wait 30 min

4- Close all doors and trunk

5- Reconnect Battery Positive First

6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door

Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock

7- Enter vehicle and Start it .

after that, Valet mode will be off? Surely I don't need to do this anytime it goes to Service/Valet mode???What is the "user" action sequence to turn on and off valet mode using the available keyfobs? I have the 2-button lock/unlock and an accompanying one-button remote start keyfob.Thanks

Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Transmitter Programming

NOTE: All Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitters must be programmed at the same time.

NOTE: Programming of the RKE transmitters can be accomplished using a scan tool or by carrying out the following steps:

1. The vehicle must be electronically unlocked before entering program mode using the door lock control switch.

2. Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. If the module successfully enters the program mode, it locks and then unlocks all doors.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on an RKE transmitter, and the doors lock and then unlock to confirm that each RKE transmitter is programmed. Repeat this step for each RKE transmitter.

4. If the door locks do not respond for any RKE transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Locks, Latches and Entry Systems. Make sure that no more than the maximum number (4) of RKE transmitters are attempted to be programmed.

5. Exiting the programming mode is accomplished if one of the following occurs:
- The key transitions to the OFF position.

- Twenty seconds have passed since entering programming mode or since the last RKE transmitter was programmed.

- The maximum number (4) of RKE transmitters have been programmed.

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
