I've always been very sucessful using a coat hanger to actuate the power door lock switch. if your worried about scratching the paint, just use a little packing tape around the door edge to protect. if that fails second option is a brick. Good Luck

Call your Ford Dealer with your Vin number and they can cut you a new one with some proof of ownership, or a brick works too

Do you have the external keypad? If not, find someone with a slim jim. Slide it between the glass and door, hook the latch lever inside the door, and pull up. I don't remember if Ford put the steel bar in the door in 1996 to block access to the latch. One warning, you may break the locking mechanism using this method.

SOURCE: locked keys in trunk

if your entire car is locked up, then a locksmith you'll need unless you want to break a window to get in or unless you have a friend who knows how to break into cars without damaging them.....if you can get into your car then you can pull the back seats out which will reveal some slots or openings into the trunk area...which you can then use a telescoping magnet to stick through those openings to retrieve your keys.....
good luck

If you have Onstar they will unlock the door for you. If you do not have onstart you can use a wire coat hanger. Untwist the coat hagar so it is one long piece of wire. If you have some duct tape use it to create a small ball at one end of the wire, this will make it easier to hit the unlock button. Gently pry the top of the drivers door frame away from the body. Slip the coat hangar into the space created and into the cabin it self. You will then be able to use the coat hangar to hit the unlock button. It will be easier if you have a second person on hand to help with the door. If you do not have a second person use some type of wedge to keep the door frame away from the body while you move the hagar around. Don't pull the door frame away more than about 1/4"-1/2" otherwise you'll bend/damage it.

I used this method on my 05 Tahoe when a parking garage locked the keys in the car and onstar was unable to open the doors because it was inside.

I lost my only key to my 1997 ford crown vick how can i get it started without the key


not possible as the key also controls the steering lock
get in a locksmith to remove the barrel and cut a key to that barrel
if the key is a fob key to activate the immobilizer it will have to be that type and the locksmith should be able to program it to the car

Key broke in the ignition lock


Hello! The only way to get it out without removing the lock cylinder is to pry it out with a dental pick....If that doesn't work, you'll have to remove the lock cylinder and take it to a locksmith or purchase a new cylinder/key...Locksmith may cost around $50 to remove the remainder of the key...Guru...Saailer

How do i get a ignition key made without a locksmith


Without having a locksmith come to you? You can either go to the dealership and tell them your VIN, bring your title, and they'll make it for you, but it'll cost a moderate amount. Or, if the door key and the ignition key are the same (or if it's not a chipped ignition key), you can take the door lock out of the door (not too difficult,) and take that into a key maker, like they have in any hardware store.

Tow truck operators are cheaper then the locksmith and they can open your door for you. Call around first for the best price, good luck.
