i purchased a pre-owned 2013 c-max energi a little over a month ago.  a couple of weeks ago i started to play with 'mykey'.  now i'd like to remove, or disable it, but i'm unable to get back to the 'mykey' options under settings.

 

i only have one key fob and i'm assuming i have lost all the admin privileges with setting up mykey.  is there anyway i can reset this, beyond the info given in the manual, or do i have to go to the dealer?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks!

Welcome to the forum, crazeestike!

I know you've read the Owner Manual, but I'll posting a few quick notes for anyone else who reads this thread. :)

Any keys that have not been programmed are referred to as administrator keys or admin keys. These can be used to:
• create a restricted key
• program optional MyKey settings
• clear all MyKey features.

Note: All programmed keys can be cleared within the same key cycle in which a key was programmed, otherwise an admin key is required to clear the keys.

CLEARING ALL MYKEYS
You can clear the programming while you create a MyKey or use an admin key to clear the restrictions. When you clear the restrictions, you return the key to its original admin key status.
To clear your MyKey, use the information display to do the following:
1. Access the main menu and select Settings, then MyKey.
2. Scroll to Clear All and press the OK button.
3. Hold the OK button until ALL MYKEYS CLEARED displays.


I lost the only admin key.
• Purchase a new key from your authorized dealer.

Since you only have one key, it can either remain as the admin key, or you can program it to act as a MyKey. THat being said, there are certain things (programming new keys and optional settings, clearing individual keys, doesn't have any restrictions on it) that admin keys have that the restricted MyKey will not. If the "Clear all MyKeys" above doesn't work, I recommend heading to your dealer.

i've tried "CLEARING ALL MY KEYS" several times with what as listed above and the original key cycle was sometime ago.  i didn't know that adding mykey would remove admin privileges.  now i do (lesson learned)!
 

i'll have to contact the dealership.  

 

i appreciate you responding to my post, meagan.  :smile2:
