Securilock passive anti-theft system

Securilock passive anti-theft system  - Locks and Security - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

SecuriLock passive anti-theft system is an engine immobilization system. This system is designed to help prevent the engine from being started unless an intelligent access key programmed to your vehicle is used. The use of the wrong type of coded key may lead to a “no-start” condition. The message center will display: STARTING SYSTEM FAULT.

Your vehicle comes with two intelligent access keys; additional units may be purchased from your authorized dealer. The authorized dealer can program these to your vehicle or you can program then yourself. Refer to Programming spare intelligent access keys for instructions on how to program the coded key.

Note: The SecuriLock passive anti-theft system is not compatible with non-Ford aftermarket remote start systems. Use of these systems may result in vehicle starting problems and a loss of security protection.

Note: 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 key while starting the engine. These objects will not cause damage to the coded key, but may cause a momentary issue if they are too close to the key when starting the engine. If a problem occurs, turn the ignition off, remove all objects on the key chain away from the coded key and restart the engine.

Note: Do not leave a duplicate coded key in the vehicle. Always take your keys and lock all doors when leaving the vehicle.

Automatic arming

The vehicle is armed immediately after turning the ignition off.

Automatic disarming

Switching the ignition on with a coded key disarms the vehicle.
