How to Reset a Ford Alarm System

There are two security features on a Ford. One is a personal alarm system that makes a loud noise if someone tries to break into the vehicle. This is turned on and off using a remote control key. The other system is a passive system called the Securilock. This prevents the engine from starting without the use of a coded ignition key. This is the key that comes with the vehicle from the factory that is specially coded to start the vehicle.
