      I did not have to edit 720-01-03 in the IPC. 726-19-01 was set to 0047 when I first read the car. I'm not exactly sure what they did. I still have the seats and wheel options in my options however. I just set them to off. The instructions for the IPC didn't make a whole lot of sense. Instead of just four characters as the values in the first post would suggest I have ten so I wasn't sure what needed to be changed to C8F3.

      Hello Everyone, (I have gone through the thread) new owner of a 2013 XLT ... so just making sure before I spend the money
      I don't have push to start :(
      I found the part that is under the hood so I'm good there.
      My vehicle came with only one 4 button remote key. I read that I need two regular 4 button keys to even program a five button w/remote start ... correct?
      And even then I should get two 5 button remotes ... correct?

      Thanks
      ~Rennie

      You can get away with one 5 button key, once it's programmed.

      Thanks Jon and everyone for your reply :) I told my husband about the remotes and I showed him the sites that were mentioned. I even told him about the Chinese knockoffs that you all mentioned but he insist on purchasing them from ebay. I will keep you all posted on how this goes. I hope I don't have an issue finding a dealer that will enable it for me.

      Just buy a cable and download Forscan. It's much less expensive than the dealer, and if you follow the instructions here, you'll have no trouble doing it.

      MY GM knockoffs werent worth spit. Hard to program and remote start you had to be next to the car.

      My Ford I can start from at least 75 yards away and maybe 100 yards or more depending on what is between me and the Ex.

      Hi Jon, what type of cable do I need also need help on locating Forscan (is it FORScan lite for Ford, Mazda ...)? that's the only app I see on iPhone. It's $4.99 so I want to make sure before I download it. Thanks

      Yes. You'll need 5 button keys as well, but you can program those too.

      Are the Strattec keys considered OEM? Or do you have to buy the two key set to get OEM?

      If you do not have power lift gate, I don't believe you need 5 button key. We have 2014 XLT without power lift gate and am using 4 button key after using Forscan to activate remote start. Probably save you a few bucks.

      As long as it has the buttons you need, it should be fine. I haven't looked for anything other than the 5 button.

      I'm not sure about anything but keys listed as OEM.
