2010 Ford F-150 Crank but not starting

Asked by Jun 10, 2017 at 01:14 AM about the 2010 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was programing a new key clicker for the truck turning the key 8 times then waiting for the door locks to cycle and we got it a couple of times however it took several trys before we got it done in between the times we tryed we start the truck and let it run for a bit well once we finished programing the clickers the truck wont start. I REPLACED A BLOWN fuse and you can here the fuel pump turn on when you put the key in the on posistion I am not sure what elce to look at?

Does the engine spin when you try to start it? If not, it's probably a programming error. Does the original key work now?

OK, on other vehicles, usually if there is a programming error the engine will not crank. I do have the service manual for the 2010 F 150. I will check and if I can find anything there and get back

From the service manual. A minimum of 2 passive anti-theft system (PATS) keys must be programmed into the Instrument Cluster (IC) to complete the procedure and allow the vehicle to start. 1. Turn the key from Off position to On position. 2. From the scan tool, follow the on-screen instructions to Enter Security Access. 3. From the scan tool, select: Parameters Reset and follow on-screen info. 4. NOTE: If the IC or the IC and the PCM were replaced, updated or reconfigured, follow steps 4-9. All vehicles keys are erased during the parameter reset procedure. Verify at least 2 vehicle keys are available prior to carrying out the PATS parameter reset. If only the PCM is replaced, go to step 9------ continued

5. Turn the key to the off position and disconnect the scan tool. 6. Turn the key to the on position for 6 seconds. 7. Turn the key to the off position and remove the key. 8. Insert the second PATS key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn thekey to the on position for 6 seconds. 9. Both keys now start the vehicle. I have followed a procedure similar to the one you outlined above on older vehicles and it has worked. I have not tried your procedure on my 2010 as there has been no need. You may have to program two keys. And you may have to use a scan tool. Good Luck.

If all else fails, locksmiths usually have the proper scan tool, you may have to have one make a house call. But ask first while you have them on the phone.
