There is no reset, but your manual says the following:

Large metallic objects, electronic devices that are used to

purchase gasoline or similar items, or a second coded key on the same

key chain may cause vehicle starting issues. You need to prevent these

objects from touching the coded IKT while starting the engine. These

objects will not cause damage to the coded IKT, but may cause a

momentary issue if they are too close to the IKT when starting the

engine. If a problem occurs, turn the ignition off, remove all objects on
the key chain away from the coded IKT and restart the engine.

Why is red light on dash with lock/key symbol flashing


Theftlock/passlock whatever ford calls it. It is their anti theft system. The system provides a link from the computer to the key itself where a chip tells it that it is indeed the correct key. If your key isn't working you likely need to do a pats relearn procedure. Guessing you lost all power or replaced a battery or a pcm

Will not start but theft light is on


If the security or anti-theft light is flashing when you attempt to start your car, and the engine does not crank or does not start, you have an anti-theft system activated. Some models just use the light to detour thieves, and some are actually connected to an engine kill system.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
