Hi there martin ,good morning to you

Ok can you try popping the circle cover off where Thr ignition barrel should be and insert the key into the slot provided this by passes the keyless system and uses the normal immobilsor system

If this doesn't work then the fault will most commonly lie with either a software issue with the KVM (Keyless Vehicle Module ) or a faulty steering column lock assembly
Ford released a technical bulletin for electronic steering colum lock issues where by the part number needs to be referenced against this bulletin as if The part numver is out of spec date it must be replaced

This is a very complex system and should only be worked in by ford trained technicians as the ford ids laptop has specific software to diagnose/programme the keyless system
This is The most effective and quickest way to diagnose this issue correctly

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue martin please let me know

Kind regards in advance and have a nice day

Hi there Marin thanks for replying


Hopefully this issue is just down to a programming/software issue as this is the first port if call with this type of issue once it's connected to fords ids laptop

I look forward to hearing our outcome

Kind regards in advance

Brian
