Publication Date: March 2, 2005

FORD:
2004-2005 F-150

ISSUE:

Some 2004-2005 F-150 vehicles built through 2/7/2005, may exhibit an inoperative keyless entry keypad. This may be due to the vehicle security module (VSM) not being configured to accept keyless entry keypad input.

ACTION:

Reprogram the VSM using the As Built Data in this TSB. Refer to the following Service Procedure to access and re-configure the VSM using WDS, NGS+ or NGS Classic.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

WDS PROCEDURE

  1. Close any existing sessions on WDS.
  2. Disable the VSM by removing fuse F2.107, or by disconnecting VSM connector.
  3. Start a new WDS session, (select 16 Pin > all except those below, etc.).
  4. Allow WDS to identify the vehicle, perform VIN confirmation and RO screens by pressing check mark button, (VSM will fail network test because it is disabled).
  5. Select Toolbox tab, pick Module Programming, Programmable Module Installation > VSM.
  6. Follow WDS prompts to cycle the key OFF, press check mark button.
  7. When “INSTALL A NEW MODULE IN VEHICLE” appears, reconnect VSM module or reinstall fuse F2.107.
  8. Follow prompt to cycle key ON, press check mark.
  9. When the explanation screen indicates As Built data will need to be entered, press check mark.

After entering the C1-03 data from As built press the check mark. At this point, WDS should indicate whether the programming was successful. If unsuccessful verify good connection at DLC, good power and ground to VSM, self-test VSM, re-boot WDS and reattempt the procedure.
