When I bought.my car, used, there was only one key. I quickly had a 3rd party program another key. My problem is, there IS NO MyKey directly under "settings". I do have one under "Information" which, when I press it, says "3 Admin keys, 0 Mykeys".

BUT I have a Mykey speed limit issue as well as sound volume issue. How can I change the setting?

It is typical situation when people have MyKey enabled and have no Admin key that would allow to clear MyKey feature. Previously, our support answered that there are 2 ways to do it with FORScan:

1. Reprogram PATS - erase all known keys and program 2 new ones. This removes MyKey completely, but it is quite "heavy" way: it requires 2 working different good quality keys and PATS programming functions (in FORScan it is available not for all models).

2. Disable MyKey options in IPC and other modules if available. This removes chimes and warnings, but not MyKey itself. Some limits, like speed limit, may remain active after this procedure.

But one of our users found a workaround about how to clear MyKeys with FORScan but without any programming. It can be done in FORScan for Windows or FORScan Lite for iOS, Android. Here is the exact sequence:

1. Start the car and connect to it with FORScan.
2 Start PCM KOER test (Tests->PCM Key On Engine Running On Demand Self Test)
3. Wait until the test is completed
4. Remove keyfob from the car in case of keyless system (with engine start button). In case of standard blade key, you have to block the transponder (for example, wrap the keyfob with a foil).
5. Stop the engine (turn the ignition off)
6. Turn the igfnition On but don't run the engine.
7. Go to MyKey menu in your instrument cluster and execute Clear MyKeys option .

You now have MyKey removed.

Note: this was tested on cars with gasoline engine, not tested on diesel engines. "

Please leave your feedback on this method.

Oh my goodness! Finally got it 2016 F-150 keyless entry keyless start. with the "PCM selftest koer and remove key from truck. I actually got it an hour ago or so HOWEVER I already went into the IPC module and disabled all of the mykey features..(this did help temporarily to remove volume and speed limiting!).. that said, every time I went back to the settings in the dash to erase all mykeys did not populate, only because I already disabled it in the IPC module :roll: I realized that one of the "restricted satelite stations" was now playing!!!! At that moment I realized that I had disabled the mykey, I then went back to the IPC module and enabled the mykey features and voala! the mykey option on the dash now populated and thus the erase all mykeys! Then it took me a few tries to realize I had to hold the OK button down to finally reset all mykeys :D

I hope this helps someone that has already disabled all of the mykey options in the IPC module

Thank you everyone that posted helpfull information!! Thank you FORScan for this software! saved me 250 for a Stealership keyless key and 140 for Stealership to program!!!

I accidentally enabled MyKey without having an admin key, and I wasn't able to turn the MyKey off. I went to the Ford dealership and asked that they clear the MyKey program. They said that the ONLY way to clear it was to get a new admin key made (at a cost of $350) and for me to clear the MyKeys myself. In doing so, they would make my current key fob obsolete, so I would be out $350 and essentially back to the same truck and number of keys that I had before. They also quoted that it would take them 3+ hours. I kindly left without having them touch my truck and found this thread on how to clear the MyKeys using FORScan. I have a 2018 F150 Raptor with a remote fob and was able to clear the MyKeys program in 5 minutes by following the steps outlined in this post. Thanks for the help!

Hello everyone,

I have a 2013 ford focus se and i have done the mykey thing too. I have tried several different things found on youtube but nothing has worked. I have tried the latest forum on here and i was unsuccessful. Is there any other way to get it off without buying another key or taking to a dealership?

I just wanted to report that this procedure did *not* work for my mother's 2017 Ford Escape with blade key (no keyless).

I was able to use foil to block the FOB signal, but the vehicle still starts in MyKey mode.

I have yet to hear of any proven method for removing MyKey without an admin key from a vehicle that doesn't have a keyless start function.

IMO, there really need to be consumer protection laws (at least for dealerships) to prevent selling used cars without an admin key. My poor mother had no idea until the deal was done.

The fact that even the dealership can't simply reset the system, and demands that you spend $250+ on a new key is really exploitative.

I'm a locksmith in Maine, if clearing mykeys is too expensive, we offer a basic key option for $90+tx out the door. Additionally, we could do for 65 with a flippy key and just not give out the key. The blades are replaceable and the keys can be programmed over and over again on multiple cars. If you don't want to pay dealer prices, find a trustworthy locksmith and explain what you'd like to do. If you want to keep the key (flippy) it's 180ish. We do loads of these for buy here pay here operations, 1st party dealerships and rental agencies.
