Did you have the key programmed to the vehicle? If not you will need to have another key (2 keys) and have them programmed by a ford dealer. Good Luck

How to program my key to 98 ford explorer


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.
<HR>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 secondand 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.

How can I hot wire my ford Taurus? I lost my key


Problem with hot wiring the ignition is that the vehicle will start and run but with out turning the ignition the steering wheel will be locked > I suggest a new ignition switch , you can always hammer a flat head screw driver in the ignition were the key goes and turn the ignition. Either way you will need a new ignition switch .

Changed battery and replaced lost key. Now it won't start


nitabelle57, It sounds like your security system will not recognize the new key you purchased. Keys have a chip in them which has to be recognized by the security system in order to work. The new key has to be programmed by your security system before it will start your vehicle. You will need a battery charger to program the key as this procedure takes thirty minutes to do. Put the charger on the battery. Be sure everything else is turned off. Place the new key in the ignition and turn it to the run position. The security light should come on. After ten minutes the security light should be out, if not proceed anyway. Turn the key to the off position but do not remove it. Wait five seconds and turn it to the run position once again. Wait another ten minutes and turn it off again. Wait five seconds and turn it to the run position once again. After the final ten minutes turn the key off (do not remove it) Wait thirty seconds and then the key should be programmed. If you have any other keys they will not work now as the security system is now programmed for the one key. If you have another key and need it for another driver then start the vehicle with the newly programmed key and let it run for about a minute. Place the extra key in the ignition and turn it to the run position and wait sixty seconds. This should solve that problem. Good luck with this.

Car won't start. 1994 Ford Explorer. Clicking noise from engine when ignition is turned. Battery is good. Relays swapped out with a brand new one, but still not starting. Vehicle went from starting fine in...


Check the starter,to see if it is the problem,and clean the cables to the battery,where then connect,and clean the battery post also,clean them to where the cables,and the post shine,so there is no grey,or black on them,this acts as an insulator,and will not let the starter get enough voltage.To check the starter,after cleaning cables and battery post,have someone turn the key to start the engine while you tap on the starter with a hammer lightly,if it starts,then the stater is bad.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Ignition wires to start car


there is a very good possibillity your not going to get that started with out the keys, if the vehicle is Equiped with PATS it wont start with out the keys. the key has a chip in it. if you try to hotwire it etc. it will go into theft mode and will not crank, if it does it will not start because the vehicle computer disables the ignition. your best bet is a tow out to your local ford dealer, you will have to purchase 2 new keys, about $30 a peice, because the old keys will have to be erased, and you need 2 keys to program after an erase. the dealership will also charge you about a half hour for labor as it takes 10 minutes to gain security access before you can do any programing.
