F-150 Key program

Post by Taterbug23 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 2:04 am

I'm new to FORScan and I tried to search this before posting.
I bought this truck used and the original key was lost last weekend. I had to get a locksmith out to cut a cut and program(this key didn't have the keyfob lock, unlock etc).
I ran FORScan and it says 4 keys already exist. I added my 2 new keys using FORscan and they work in the ignition and start the truck, although the keyfob lock/unlock doesn't work.
Through my reading I see only 4 keys are allowed with those options, after that the 5th key and so on will only work for the ignition.

So my question is, is it now save for me to delete all keys and reprogram the 3 I have? The reason I ask this is the information I read says to confirm you have at least 2 keys with working keyfobs before erasing them all.

I went ahead and went for it. Everything worked fine.
