    Yeha, I called the dealership, and although I did not talk with the parts department (I chose Service), it sounds like they'll certianly have the key code and will be able to do it for $12-$14. Thank you.

Well its an older car but if you take you're title card to the dealer along with the vin # they can cut you keys Its a 50/50 chance if they work or not because it possible that the lock clynder has been changed

Lost ignition key 2005 ford Taurus sel

Unless you have two keys left... IT IS
Locksmith time...

Dealer cost twice as much (in my opinion)...
Call them... Check it out.

A reputable locksmith will cut and register a new key(s) for you...
If you still have ONE... I recommend TWO MORE...!!

When they have you over a barrel its MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE.

(see owners manual)

The best cut price I have had was $6...
(because it was my 3rd key)

Great BLANK OEM transponder keys are available
on eBay and AMAZON...

Lost keys for ignition

hello,you need to seek your local vehicle locksmith,who will cut and reprogram the new key to your vehicle,or the other choice may be transporting your vehicle to the main dealership,and instruct them to carry out all necessary work,(ordering replacements from the main suppliers,and then re coding to your vehicle) though the 2nd choice may well end up quite expensive,but do ring around for the best quote .hope that helps, cheers.

I lost my ignition there some way i can get a duplicate made through a product code or something without buying a new switch with keys or finding an expensive locksmith

Sorry, I think in this case a locksmith is the only way you are going to get out of this jam. You are going to have to call one in this situation. The only other thing I can think of is asking the dealership you got it from for another possible solution. I hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Not what you want to hear but the dealership will cut a nwe one with proof of ownership....registration and license to match. otherwise, you may be able to call in a locksmith who may be able to at least get you in the vehicle...maybe even cut a key...good luck

I have a 98 ford contour and lost the ignition key. how would i replace the lock?

Go to any Ford dealership with your VIN #, and proof of ownership, and they can cut you a key. A good locksmith can do the same.

Lost keys

Take you ID, and your title or registration to your local ford dealer; they will cut you set of keys. It will cost you about $100.00 for the set, but a locksmith won't do it any cheaper for you either.
