2000 ford f150 change computer from junk yard , well not start now ,but showing theft light ,do I have to get this thing flashed

The HEC ( hybird Electronic Cluster ) has a PCM ID stored in it, that needs to be cleared from the old one you had, so the new one can be re-learned.
The HEC sends the valid key tag with the PCM_ID configured in the HEC to the PCM for comparison to know if the start enable should be valid or invalid

This is so someone cannot take a cluster, ignition key cylinder and the PATS keys configured in the HEC, and put it into a truck, to make it start. Takes a bit of programming to get it to work.

Going to need someone to erase the PCM_ID parameter in the HEC to make the truck not think it is being stolen ( good news, it works as advertised ).

I lost my ignition key to my 1996 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0L automatic, and I am trying to start my truck so I can even try to get another key made. But I was wondering if there is a way to start my truck, like...

The best solution I can offer is to take your vehicle registration and your picture ID to your local Ford dealer. They will be able to cut you a new key by using the VIN on your registration. The picture ID is needed because they are not supposed to cut new keys for anyone except the registered owner of the vehicle. This method is the only solution that will guarantee that no damage will be done to the truck.
NOTE: this may not work if the ignition tumblers/cylinder have been replaced before.

Has this been helpfull? If so, please take a moment

How much would a key for a 98 contour with the black head on it.

will try to assist you. the 98 contour has a key for the ignition switch that has a chip inside of the black head. this keeps theifs from taking your car. to get a new key, you will need to go to ford dealership with your picture I.D. and vehicle registration that has vital info. on your car,such as your vehicle I.D.# or the vin# as most people refer to. the key has a chip inside of it that tells the car,you are the owner and not the valet who just parks your car. it also has several other features that i will not disclose online. the cost for a replacement? differs. $75.00 at dealer only. it may be more, but my last venture was$79.98 and two trips to dealer because i did'nt bring registration to the car,and it's in wifes name,so one more trip with her. she was not happy! so. take all your paperwork on car,valid I.D. for ownership and you will get a new key. thank you for choosing we are here 24/7 7 days per week!!

Both keys have been lost to my 1997 Ford Mustang GT. I understand they have chips in them. What can I do?

You will need to tow to dealer , the dealer can use the cars vin number to cut a new key and reprogram the transpoder,, this is the only way i know about.

Key was broke in the trunk. It's for a 1995 probe, can a key be made for it? I have no other key but do have vin.

Not sure about your state, here in SC as long as you have the VIN# the dealership can cut a key for your car. They may tell you they can't or tell you they need to do something else to the car, but they don't. Even if the key is chipped it can still be done.

Need key code

it should be on a metal tag or plastic card with your owner manual packet.
Or, your selling delaer will have it.

Or, take your 17 digit VIN # and registration and ID to a dealer and they can request the code from Ford. Usually parts department does this.
