Right, now it needs all the Anti theft system corrections performed. Call around see if you can locate a knowledgeable service facility they will need an IDS-VCM tool. Ask if they have it or not, and the fee $200 approx. Regards.... tags RFID key, Ignition immobilizer, Transponder, EECIV pin, Key coding, Programing, like getting a JAVA update or ADOBE update.


Your quickest bet is to have it towed to a Ford dealer, they can tie in the replacement column with your onboard computer and reprogram the anti-theft at the same time, Auto is right about the price.
