Thank you. I have ordered an ELM327 modified with the switch. I have installed ELMConfig and FORScan on the laptop for when it arrives. I am hoping that one of these will allow me to find out more about the parking assistance fault (long beep, flashes then shuts down) and to enable the towing functions as I have fitted a towbar for my trailer? It would be nice if it could program a second key but that's probably a step too far in my expectations.

I've got a feeling the more recent Ford vehicles are no longer enabled to allow owner programming of additional keys or clearing existing keys, regardless of how many keys you have. Probably done in the interests of security but it was damn useful (and better on the wallet!) to be able to do it yourself at home!
