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.

The dealership should be able to do this for you without a current key, of course this means towing the vehicle to them. See if they will sell you a key and you program it yourself.

hope this helps. I found the above info at FordF150.net

LOST ONLY KEY FOR FORD 2000 CONTOUR V6. NEED KEY CODE. LOCAL FOR DEALERSHIP ONLY GOES BACK 10 YEARS, EVEN WITH PROVIDING VIN # and title.


There's a way to install a magnet in the column at the ignition to allow the key to work. My son did it on a 2000 Ford Focus and it worked fine. I do not know the details but surely a search would turn it up? don-ohio (:^)

Key cut for 97 ford f150


If you already have a key bring it to walmart. If you dont, take apart your ignition assembly and get the part that the key goes into and bring it to a lock smith. They are usually very good at making keys.

My 2004 F150 will not start. When I turn the key the anti theft light just flashes. The key has not lost its code. I tried a 2nd key


the key has lost it's code, there is a chip in the key that communicates with the security system that the correct key is in the ignition and that the vehicle is allowed to start.

if you have any other keys on your key ring remove these and try again.
if no start and light still flashes the computer will need reprogrammed to accept the key.
the dealer can do this in like 10 -15 minutes usually.
