Dear customer, what I managed to observe in your query is a symptom of a deprogramming in the central locking system and recognition of the key, basically what could happen is that the key lost its configuration either due to a problem at the electronic mode level or that the keys lost their programming.The good thing is that once the configuration is done, if this does not correct the problem you can proceed directly to perform a computerized diagnosis and a live data flow to be able to observe the signals of the modules including the centralized locking module and recognition of the key through this data flow, you will be able to observe if one of the signals of this module is wrong indicating whether or not replace the module.Whatever the reason, what I recommend is that since you have already replaced the batteries of both keys, it is necessary to make a new configuration with them to avoid that it is simply a deconfiguration, a programming is not the same as a configuration, a programming of the key is when the key is new, and what you need is to reprogram again with the module, this is done through a special key programmer, the configuration must be done through a diagnostic device with Ford software, so you can go back to let the keys work correctly with the initial configuration.Although at first glance what I can observe is basically a configuration problem which you will be able to easily solve as i indicated you.
