, it looks like they charge you for the code, but if you go into a Ford dealer they may give it to you for free (you may need to provide proof of ownership). Make sure the unit does not display LOCK 10 or LOCK 13, as the unit will probably need to be sent away to be cleared. Most dealers don't have the facilities to do this themselves, although they can provide the codes. The site I've linked for you has quite a good description of how to enter the codes.
Hope this helps,

Variable Cam Timing
Variable Camshaft Timing is an automobile variable valve timing technology developed by Ford. It allows for more optimum engine performance, reduced emissions, and increased fuel efficiency compared to engines with fixed camshafts. It uses electronically controlled hydraulic valves that direct high pressure engine oil into the camshaft phaser cavity. These oil control solenoids are bolted into the cylinder heads towards the front of the engine near the camshaft phasers. The powertrain control module transmits a signal to the solenoids to move a valve spool that regulates the flow of oil to the phaser cavity. The phaser cavity changes the valve timing by rotating the camshaft slightly from its initial orientation, which results in the camshaft timing being advanced or retarded. The PCM adjusts the camshaft timing depending on factors such as engine load and RPM.
