You will then need two PATS keys. One can be the cheaper nonfob pats type key. Using the VCM again Program both keys then assign one as the admin key.

Not having the admin key is the issue.

Can a locksmith do this?? I have no clue. Often times it doesn't work the first time even with fords tools and you have to try the second time.
ford doesn't loan, rent or even support any third party security module programmers.. again playing with third party programmers is playing with fire as you can lock out and even brick the cars security module.. the car has a peramiters that it will actually disable the entire car if you screw with that module to much and it will have to be replaced ..
