I was messing with the settings on my Ford Fusion Hybrid and accidentally turned on the "MyKey" feature. This became a problem because many of the Sirius radio programs that I like to listen to, while driving, since displayed "MyKey Restricted". After a bit of Googling I discovered that MyKey restrictions are a feature for enforcing "better driving habits" on a member of the family, presumably one of youthful years. In terms of my favorite radio programs, mainly most of the Comedy channels, one aspect of this feature intends to save young years from a barrage of foul language. Being of senior years, my ears are more "seasoned", thus this feature is of no use to me.
How did I "fix" it? I followed the instructions at the following Ford site:
Basically, in my case, what I did was start the car using the Master (or "Admin") key (usually two keys are issued to a new Ford car buyer [with a system like this] -- one key is the master or admin key and the other(s) can be restricted using the MyKey features). Turn on the car using the master key, then, using the controls on the steering wheel (left side), navigate to "Settings", then to "MyKey". Then, in the MyKey menu, select "Clear MyKey", then hold down the "OK" button until the MyKey finishes clearing. If you're unable to achieve this, perhaps it's because you're not using a master key -- try the other key(s). If MyKey is a feature you actually use, then you may need to use a more finessed approach (this being the "crowbar approach").
