How to Reset a Securilock System in a Fordby Matthew Fortuna
Keyless entry systems on Ford vehicles allow you to control a number of different security and convenience features. With your Securilock system, you can unlock your doors without fumbling with your keys, sound the panic alarm in a dark street or parking lot and pop the trunk with your hands full. You can set or reset the remotes from your driver's seat in a few easy minutes with no professional equipment or experience.
Enter your vehicle with your ignition key and remote and insert your key into the ignition.
Turn the ignition key from "Off" to "Run" eight times in the first 10 seconds, and end the eighth turn in the "Run" position.
Wait for the locks to click after the eighth cycle and press and hold any button on your remote within 30 seconds.
Hold the button for up to 30 seconds until the locks automatically click again, and this will indicate successful reprogramming. You can then remove the key from the ignition to end the process.
