Technically you can't. The computer will not power up the coil and injectors without that chip. You can add a new chip as long as you have the old one, but it takes a dealer or really good locksmith to cut a new key with the original chip, or reprogram the system for a new key.

SOURCE: Lost keys to ford ranger and need to bypass the

Hi,

I am not allowed to provide instructions to bypass an antitheft system, I am sorry.

But I can tell you that it ist not simple to be done,I think it´s even impossible to override the system of your car. The reason is that the immobilizer is included in the engine control module, so there is no way to bypass the system.

The easiest -and cheapest- way is to order a new key or tow the car to the next Ford Branch to program the existing key.

SOURCE: I lost my ignition key

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.

How to bypass alarm system lost the remote 02 ford expedition


Factory alarm is Passive. Passive Anti-Theft System. It is a transponder chip in the key and a transceiver ring around the lock cylinder. If the alarm starts go off when set and not unlocked with remote or key, inserting the programmed key into the ignition and starting will disarm the system, shut off the horn and flashing lights and allow the vehicle to start.

Sorry you can't. Ford's suck because you have to have two keys to reprogram the security to the keys. Last one I had done cost about $200. Dealer only.

How to program a new key with chip and other keys are lost.


Hi Rigger, If the Ranger is a 99 it will have to be taken in to dealer or independant shop that has flash programming. Even some auto parts stores have them. 98 and up have to be reflashed, I t doesn't fall under the Passive Anti- Theft or (SecuriLock) critiera. My advise to you would be to call some Independant shops or parts stores for pricing. Hope this Helps, Good Luck Randy.

Anti theft bypass on 99 ford ranger??????


Technically, you can't bypass it. Neither can the car thieves.
The security module is built into the instrument cluster and it "talks" to the engine computer. The two components have to be sync-ed with the key codes.
You may be able to hot-wire the coil and fuel pump but I doubt the injectors will work since the computer will be out of service.
Usually a dealer has to reprogram the cluster and computer with the new key code.

In most cases you will have to drill it.
There are videos on Youtube that show how its done.
Most all Ford locks in the late 80s and early 90s are the same style.
