Lost my keys to my '99 ford expidition can't get a key how can I hotwire the vehicle


you cant,call your dealer,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

I bought a 1996 Toyota camry from a tow yard. It came without a clicker for the ignition kill switch from the alarm. How do I override that permanentlY? I sometimes can get the valet switch to override...


A good lock smith can obtain the code required from a book or the dealership as a certified lock smith and cut you a key and program the code into it that will by pass the clicker. This key will work fine in the ignition and locks just they did in times past. If there is a problem with the receiver part in the switch itself, then a new switch is in order with a new key or/and clicker. If you are a trained electronic expert, there may be a way to take the switch out and bypass the receiver. Apparently you are a DIYer so the first option would work. If the second option , you probably wouldn't be asking here. Hope it works for you

99 ford explorer changed ignition now wont start


If your vehicle was towed, check the fuel pump intertia switch located near the top of the passenger side kick panel.
if you changed the key, you will be having an antitheft problem.
you could try putting an original key at the lock cylinder while turning the new key, it may allow it to start... if so, new key will require programming, or have the new lock cylinder coded to the old keys.

2004 ford explorer will not turn over with key but remote starter switch makes it turn over


Its a good possibility that the Anti-theft is interferring with the circuit. If you have an extra ignition key, use that in case the password chip in your regular FOB has detriorated.

There is a brake sensor which is on the upper brake pedal. It interlocks with the starter to prevent starting without having your foot on the brake pedal. Check your brake lights for operation. If the brake lights stay dark with your foot on the pedal, the switch is broke or knocked out of position. A common problem.

Next, there are small wires for the starter solenoid. You can use a test light on one removed wire and ground the test light to the vehicle, the other end in the small wire. Turn the keyswitch to start, with brake pedal pressed and see if it lights up. If it does light up, the starter solenoid may be bad.

Battery level. Ford Anti-theft and some say Battery-saver, can cause both starting and charging problems. A fully charged battery can be at 13.2V- 13.6V. When Ford systems detect low voltage it can activate the Anti-theft, battery-saver, and even disconnect the charging system to allow the battery to completely drain. In some cases the Anti-theft drops starter voltage to around 7V so the starter will not spin. Have the battery tested.

I know of 2004 trucks that were jump started and showed charging, then after 5-10 minutes they lost the charging system. Some people lost the charging system at 70MPH and drove until they stalled. All because of the automatic features built into the trucks. A new battery fixed the problem. Your problem could stem from this.
