Default MyKey Volume Limited

Ok, so I've tried and tried to figure this out. MyKey is limiting my volume to 45% and the Ford Manual is so confusing. I figured out how to get the speed limiter changed from 80mph but I, for the life of me, can't get this damn MyKey volume crap work.

Any help??

Alright...so more to this. This truck is pissing me off so much. The Ford manual was written by a bunch of retards. This whole MyKey concept is one of the WORST ideas I've ever ran across.

So today I hooked up a trailer for the first time and when backing the trailer up I have no option in my Settings to turn off the Parking Sensors. Read the manual several times and it says I need to use the admin key. Well...how the F*&% do I know which one is the admin key when I've only used 1 key since i bought the truck.

So far...this truck is getting worse and worse. Transmission shudder, turbo surging, MyKey garbage, etc. VERY VERY frustrating to buy a vehicle that is such a pain to use. I'm actually starting to regret getting rid of my Duramax.

Yea the other key will be the "admin" key. Like stated about use it but make sure not to activate the mykey for that key. I hate the mykey thing too.

MyKey is basically for parents to restrict teenage drivers. Limits the max volume, speed, ect I had a 3rd key made to use as a "valet" key in case anyone needs to borrow my truck or I drop it off at the dealer I give them that key so I have their speed limited to 75 and volume to 45%. Wish I could help with figuring it out... My dealer set mine up when I bought it.

I did some research and found how to reset you key that mykey was added to

Clear MyKey™
To reset all MyKeys™ as admin keys do the following:
1. Turn the vehicle on using the admin key.
2. Press SETUP or select/reset stem until PRESS RESET TO CLEAR
MYKEY is displayed.
3. Press and release the RESET button or press and hold the select/reset
stem until HOLD RESET TO CONFIRM CLEAR is displayed.
4. Press and hold the RESET button or select/reset stem until ALL
MYKEYS CLEARED is displayed.

I personally wouldn't add mykey to any of your keys unless you want to limit yourself.
