If you have key numbers on the door, you should enter the code, then immediately start the truck. If this does not work contact the dealer for a sequence to reset the alarm.

That means the computer dont see your key code or its the wrong code...Fords bad about the anntenna which is located around the switch going bad..You have to take off the plastic shroud around the steering wheel to see it..First try a different key first..If you got a spare..Other than that you have to have a scanner to see whats going on..Good Luck

the anti-theft has been activated and needs to be reset.you may have to get it to a shop that has the tools to do this or go to the dealer to get it done.did you use a key that was cut as a spare and doesn`t have a chip in it.this usually can cause this.also if the wires at the switch break it can activate the anti-theft system.

try using a spare key.
Either way if it starts or not with the spare key a trip to the ford dealer may be in your future. occasionally the security system will forget your keys. You can program them yourself but you will need two keys that work. If you have two keys that work let me know and I'll let you know how do do it.
If you do not have two keys that work than the ford dealer will have to reprogram your keys into the security system.
