^X2, have the same thing on my 2000. It's an ignition disabler. As vapiper said you have a key you insert so you can start it. Without the key it doesn't start. The dealer installs them as a way to get extra money out of you, like the id theft, extended service plans, disability insurance, accident replacement insurance, etc. when you go to sign the contract. If you don't buy it they don't activiate it.

yup when "dealing" about price and all the BS add-ons dealer wanted about 1450 for an alarm, tinting, paint protectant, and the 3m fabric BS, I rejected it right away!! its a rip offf.... fords paints are not thin like toyotas, my truck has vinyl interior so it would be a waste. so if its disabled I guess I wont worry then... but I will double check with dealerrrr.... on my day off ill remove the chip and try to start vehicle to see what happens... i dont wana risk a no start condition and then have to go to work. LOL.

Doesn't appear to be factory installed... and i was never given a key-fob... is this some sort of passive alarm or should i be looking for a manufacturer?
