Ford Edge. 2011. security system

2011 Ford Edge security system

When using key w/transmitter to unlock door, the security system activated.

The horn. Sounded and the car would not start when key was turned to start.
The securuty light on lower dash was blinking.

This continued for a half hour and when the tow truck driver arrived he showed me that there was a small push switch behind the light.
He held the switch in and turned the ignition key on and off several times.
This turned off the security light stopped the horn and allowed the car to be started.
I have not been able to find this in the owners manual. There is no mention of the seciurity system light or the switch inthe owners manual.

Any additional information about this would be appreciated.

I don't know much about the newer systems, but I can tell you a couple of things that may cause your issue. If your key is damaged, or if you have a key close by from another vehicle that uses RFID - this may cause interference.
