Your issue is directly related to changing the battery. It can cause an anti-theft security feature to be triggered, which will require a code to unlock. You will want to look to your owner's manual for more information about getting that code and entering it. You may also find it beneficial to seek help from your local Ford Dealership, who has access to those codes. Good luck!
