Turn off the MyKey?

I somehow got it turned on, now how do I turn it off? I think I knew how I turned it on, when I hit that button it won't bring up that setting. I tried searching for it, didn't really help. Thanks!!

Did you check your Owner's Manual? Page 97 of the PDF version...

Clear MyKey™
To reset all MyKeys™ as admin keys, do the following:
1. Turn the vehicle on using the admin key.
2. Press SETUP until PRESS RESET TO CLEAR MYKEY is displayed.
3. Press and release the RESET button. HOLD RESET TO CONFIRM
CLEAR is displayed.
4. Press and hold the RESET button for two seconds until ALL MYKEYS
CLEARED is displayed.
Check MyKey™ system status
The vehicle system check will provide the status of the following
MyKey™ parameters:
• MYKEY MILES — This odometer only tracks mileage when a MyKey™
is used. If mileage does not accumulate as expected, then the
MyKey™ is not being used by the intended user. The only way to
reset this odometer to zero is by disabling MyKey™. If this odometer
is lower than the last time you checked, then the MyKey™ system has
been recently cleared.
• # MYKEY(S) PROGRAMMED — Indicates how many MyKeys™ are
programmed to the vehicle. Can be used to detect deletion of a
MyKey™.
• # ADMIN KEYS PROGRAMMED — Indicates how many admin keys
are programmed to the vehicle. Can be used to detect if an additional
spare key has been programmed to the vehicle
Refer to Message center in the Instrument Cluster chapter for MyKey™
system warnings displays.

Not to get off topic but, i've noticed they are 3 admin keys programmed for my Mustang. I only have 2 sets of keys. Does Ford keep a set of keys? I paid cash for my Mustang from money out of my savings account. No loans or anything like that.

Finally met up with my Ford salesman cousin. He tried, nothing. He says the 1 key I got isn't the main key. It's like what you give to the valet. I went from very happy with that dealership to not very!! I'll call them tom. I was thinking it was something like this. Thanks!!

For the record, I'm very slow now!! I guess I was so happy I got it, didn't sink in for about a week. You just have to know me, & not by a forum.
