I have a 2007 Lincoln Navigator...
Less than 1 hour ago (4:00pm pacific time) I had a key made AND programed at my local Walmart (over in the auto department). It cost me $54.00 and took all of 15 minutes from beginning to end. The key works perfectly - no problems...
They have a machine that reads the code on your original key - then they insert the new key blank and your original code is programed into the new key - THEN they cut the key and you are out of the door.

On-Board Programming Method "B" for Ford keys (1996 -early 1998 Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)
If you want to initiate a new master key.... 1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen minutes.
2. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder OFF and then back to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
3. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back ON (RUN) position. The dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
4. After the security light stops flashing the third time, the new key has been programmed into the vehicles computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the vehicles computer.
If you want to add a key.... 1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within 15 seconds, insert the new key and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming the key into the vehicle.
5. Don't attempt to start the vehicle with any key for at least 1 minute.
On-Board Programming Method "C" for Ford keys (Later 1998-newer Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)
If you want to initiate a new master key.... 1. This requires that the vehicle be connected to special dealer equipment. There are two ten minute delays involved while this device erases all existing key programming and sets up the vehicle computer to accept new key codes. Two new keys should be ready because the system requires a minimum of two keys in the program. After the first two keys are programmed, additional keys can be entered individually by following the instructions for adding duplicate keys (below).
If you want to add a key.... **You must have two original keys to perform this procedure. If you only have one key, you WILL have to take it to the dealer to get it programmed**
1. Insert and existing (working) key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder ON (RUN) and back to OFF. Ignition should stay on for at least ONE SECOND.
3. Remove the existing key and, within TEN seconds, insert a second working key and turn it to ON (RUN) and the back OFF. Ignition must be in ON for at least ONE second, but no more than TEN seconds. Remove the key.
4. Insert the new key before TWENTY seconds have elapsed and turn it to ON (RUN). Leave it the ON position for at least ONE second and turn back to OFF.
5. The security light will light up for THREE seconds to indicate that the new key has been successfully programmed.
6. To program additional keys, repeat steps 1 through 5
As a precautionary measure for all of the above procedures, you should wait at least one minute after you have performed this until you start your vehicle.

Keys are not all the same, it is possible the key you bought may not work, it should be searched by VIN by the dealer, and the dealer has to program with factory scan tool, should cost no more than .5 hours in labor.

Where can I get a spare key made does this key have a micro chip in it?


Ok on the key you can go to your dealer and they can cut a key for your vehicle but you will need proof of ownership and they can tell you if there is a chip in it on the remote you can program it your self if it has a security system. You need to make sure all the doors hood and trunk are shut turn the ignition to position 2 ( on 2 clicks without starting it ) and repeat this 5 times within 5 seconds and then press the lock button on the remote the security light should illuminate for about 2 seconds if program is a sucess. If this does not work you will need to take it to the dealer and there will be a charge for it most likely

Trouble with the remote on a 2010 town and country. tells me a bad key.


If Boyd's option doesn't work, check what the programmable key service at Walmart consists of. If a new key can be programed through the vehicle not the old key, then Walmart may be able to cut a new chipped key for you for around $50.00 or so. If it is a key that needs to be programed through the old key, then you may have to go back to the dealership for a new key. Sorry but they are a lot more expensive.

I have a pontiac montana 2003 and lost original ignition key but found a spare I had made at walmart, the van wont start. I can turn the key but it does not crank or even turn over and I tryed to jump it...


Did your factory key have a little black thing on the blade with a wire on each side? I believe you have the PassLock II factory anti-theft system, as this was standard on all models. You cannot use a WALMART key to start the car. You need a factory key with the right resistor in it. Your dealer can look up the resistance you need from the VIN on the car. Some locksmiths may also be able to do this. Get a blank key with the right resistor and have them cut it to match your WALMART key.

Lost my key to my jaguar 2003 x-type, where can i get a new one


the only place that will have the sort of equipment to cut you a new key (the key has to be cut according to the vin number of the car), is going to be the dealership. also the computer equipment needed to program the new key is most likely only avaliable at the dealer.
