Refer to the owners manual and remove the fuse for the security system. If there are other necessary features tied into the fuse, then you will need to locate the security system control module under the dash or on the firewall, and disconnect or cut the wires leading to it.

take the positive side of the battery off for about 3 seconds and then put it back on to see if this will reset the security code

don't know about anything like that. I know Ford did put the emergency fuel shut-off switch on the passengers side floor up under the dash just behing the carpet on Rangers and were sometimes unplugged by passengers with long legs. It has a little red button on it that pushed down. Check to see if you have something like that. Maybe it shuts off when the anti-theft alarm is activated and has to be reset.

The sensor is part of the ignition key lock cylinder, so the part and labor will be around $200-$300 depends on your local labor rate, the dealer must do this repair because the new lock cylinder key code must be programmed into the VATS module.

* If your anti-theft system is sounding (horn honking/lights flashing)you press the panic button on your key fob to shut it off.
* If your anti-theft system is armed (but not triggered) it is disarmed when you unlock the door(s) using your unlock button on your keyfob, the key pad on the driver's door, or your key.
Hope help with this. Good luck (remember rated this).
