SECURILOCK PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM
SecuriLock passive anti-theft system is an engine immobilization system.
This system is designed to prevent the engine from being started unless a
coded key programmed to your vehicle is used.
The SecuriLock passive anti-theft system is not compatible with non-Ford
aftermarket remote start systems. Use of these systems may result in vehicle
starting problems and a loss of security protection.
The theft indicator is the flashing red indicator located on the dash panel.
If a problem occurs with the SecuriLock system, the indicator will flash
rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition is in the ON position. If this
occurs, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer for service.
- When the ignition is in the OFF position, the indicator will flash
once every 2 seconds to indicate the SecuriLock system is functioning as
a theft deterrent.
- When the ignition is in the ON position, the indicator will glow for
3 seconds to indicate normal system functionality.
The vehicle is armed immediately after switching the ignition to the 3 (OFF)
or 2 (LOCK) position. The indicator on the instrument panel will flash every
two seconds when the vehicle is armed.
Switching the ignition to the 4 (ON) position with a coded key disarms the
vehicle. The indicator on the instrument will illuminate for three seconds
and then go out. If the indicator stays on for an extended period of time
or flashes rapidly, have the system serviced by your dealership or a qualified
Your vehicle is supplied with two coded keys (or three, if your vehicle is
equipped with the valet feature). Only a coded key will start your vehicle.
Spare coded keys can be purchased from your dealership. Your dealership can
program your key or you can “do it yourself.” Refer to Programming spare
The following items may prevent the vehicle from starting:
If any of these items are present, you need to keep these objects from touching
the coded key while starting the engine. These objects and devices
cannot damage the coded key, but can cause a momentary “no start” condition
if they are too close to the key during engine start. If a problem occurs,
turn ignition OFF and restart the engine with all other objects on the key
ring held away from the ignition key. Check to make sure the coded key is
an approved Ford coded key.
- Large metallic objects
- Electronic devices on the key chain that can be used to purchase gasoline
or similar items
- A second key on the same key ring as the coded key
If your keys are lost or stolen you will need to do the following:
Replacing coded keys can be very costly and you may want to store an extra
programmed key away from the vehicle in a safe place to prevent an unforeseen
- Use your spare key to start the vehicle, or
- Have your vehicle towed to a dealership or a locksmith. The key codes
will need to be erased from your vehicle and new key codes will need to be
The correct coded key must be used for your vehicle. The use of the wrong
type of coded key may lead to a “no start” condition.
If an unprogrammed key is used in the ignition it will cause a “no start”
Programming spare keys
A maximum of eight keys can be coded to your vehicle. Only SecuriLock keys
can be used. To program a coded key yourself, you will need two previously
programmed coded keys (keys that already operate your vehicle’s engine) and
the new unprogrammed key(s) readily accessible for timely implementation
of each step in the procedure.
If two previously programmed coded keys are not available, you must bring
your vehicle to your dealership to have the spare coded key(s) programmed.
Please read and understand the entire procedure before you begin.
If successful, the new coded key(s) will start the vehicle’s engine and the
theft indicator will illuminate for three seconds and then go out.
- Insert the first previously programmed coded key into the ignition
and turn the ignition from 3 (OFF) to 4 (ON) (maintain ignition in 4 (ON)
for at least one second).
- Turn ignition to 3 (OFF) then 2 (LOCK) and remove the first coded key
from the ignition.
- Within ten seconds of removing the first coded key, insert the second
previously programmed coded key into the ignition and turn the ignition from
3 (OFF) to 4 (ON) (maintain ignition in 4 (ON) for at least one second but
no more than ten seconds).
- Turn the ignition to 3 (OFF) then 2 (LOCK) and remove the second coded
key from the ignition.
- Within twenty seconds of removing the second coded key, insert the
new unprogrammed key (new key) into the ignition and turn the ignition from
3 (OFF) to 4 (ON) (maintain ignition in 4 (ON) for at least one second).
This step will program your new key.
- To program additional new unprogrammed key(s), repeat this procedure
from step 1.
If not successful, the new coded key(s) will not start the vehicle’s engine
and the theft indicator will flash on and off. You may repeat steps 1 through
6. If failure repeats, bring your vehicle to your dealership to have the
new spare key(s) programmed.
