    here is how to program a new key fob,get in and shut the doors, put the key in the ignition. turn the key from the off position to the on position and back off 10 times consecutively. after the 10th time leave it in the on your locks should go up and down. this means its in the program mode. then press any button on the remote (i pressed the lock one). this should cause the locks to go up and down again. your remote should be programed now for your truck, take the key out and give it a try. i dont think it would be different between my 99 and your 97 so give that a try.

When you turn your key nothing happens? Is your truck stick or automatic? Have you tried to start with screw drive on starter solenoid under hood on passenger fender?

There is no way to disable the immobilizer ( that would defeat the purpose of it ), the question I have, do you have another RFID tag on the ring with the truck key ( speed pass, another Ford key, etc ) ?

If you have these on the same ring, and they are too close to the key cylinder, it can cause a false negative for the programmed keys.

Have you tried another key ?

Are there any other modifications to the truck ( remote start, or security system ) ?

1998 Ford F-150 won't start w/ the key, but will w/ remote start.


Make sure the key is good. If you have two keys try the other one and see if it starts. For some reason the computer is not reading the chip in the key. The keys might need to be reprogrammed.
