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

My Mom and Pop lost the keys and only have a door key with no chip in it. I can get new keys that need cut to fit, with the chip in them, but need to find out how to program the new chip without having the original keys.

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.

SOURCE: lost my key for 1999 taurus with chip had a key made to get in

well if you are lucky check the owners manual when the car is new if i remember right there should be a pice of paper or somthing with the codes on it if not try asking a lock smith some times they can work wonders. Why its so much is because the key has a chip in it that when put in the ignition sends signal to the pats system so you cant steel the car. good luck.

You can also have a locksmith make keys for you...but with zero keys, you may have to get the first one from the dealer, and be prepared to provide proof of ownership...

1996 Probe, MT. How do new keys work with the old transponder chip?

When the anti theft system was created,the dealers forgot to tell the new car buyers about how much the fob matters to the vehicle,without it,owners are stuck,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.if you lost your fob or never had it,whatever,you need to have the exact fob that came with that car from the factory,the key and fob have a chip in them that only go to that certain car,if you do not have it,then you need to buy a new one from the dealer or ebay and then you need to contact your dealer about programming the fob to your car,you might not have to have it towed if they have the documents from the car,the only other way is to get a junk car,with the steering column,key,fob and all computer boxes and door locks and switch them,i just did that with a 98 dodge dakota,and it works.

How do i remove the key cylinder in a 1994 Land Rover discovery

without the key you cannot remove the cylinder you will have to cut it off and renew the whole lock also the car will need to be re-programmed for it to start as this vehicle has a chipped key and the immobilisor will not release ,their is a way you de -activate the alarm by turning thedrivers door key so many times to the left then the right and so on but you need the original paperwork to get this information ,just order a new key from the chassis number then breakdown truck to dealer for programming and get two keys while your at it ,the chip is in the remote fob on this vehicle for this year if remember rightly so you may think their is no chip in the key but its in the remote fob and if you locked car with remote then you cannot release it without the fob .Sorry to be such a bore
