How do I unlock my steering wheel on a 1999 ford contour?


As cars age, the key lock gets worn. Insert the key, and simultaneously try to turn the key while rocking the wheel left to right. It should release the lock. Many times if there is back pressure from the wheels, it will make the lock difficult.
Set the brake and let the wheel relax before locking the ignition.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour


Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

    1999 Ford Explorer Door Locks


    Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...

    1997 ford contour


    this is for 98, but may apply if yours is late 97 build.

    Article No.
    98-21-14
    • IGNITION SWITCH - HIGH EFFORT IGNITION KEY INSERTION/REMOVAL AND/OR KEY CHIMES SOUND WITH DOOR OPEN AND IGNITION KEY REMOVED
    Publication Date: OCTOBER 15, 1998
    FORD: 1998 CONTOUR LINCOLN-MERCURY: 1998 MYSTIQUE
    1999 COUGAR
    This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to include the 1999 Cougar . ISSUE: The ignition key may be difficult to insert or remove and/or key chimes may sound with the ignition key removed and driver's door open on some vehicles. This may be caused by internal design characteristics in the ignition lock cylinder increasing insertion/removal efforts which may allow the lock cylinder to stick.
    ACTION: Install a revised ignition lock cylinder. The revised ignition lock cylinder should reduce the possibility of high insertion/removal efforts and ensure proper chime function. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
    SERVICE PROCEDURE
    1. Verify customer concern.
    2. Observe the ignition lock cylinder as the key is removed. If the lock cylinder snaps outward to the non-depressed position and the chimes stop sounding, continue to Step 3. If it does not snap outward, replace the ignition lock cylinder with the appropriate cylinder by referring to the Parts Block in this article.
    3. Insert and remove the ignition key from the lock cylinder. If binding or high efforts are encountered, replace the ignition lock cylinder.
    4. From the Parts Block, select a lock cylinder with a part number suffix identical to the center character of the key code of the vehicle. The suffix must match the center key code character to maintain a single key system.
    5. Install the replacement lock cylinder, by referring to the 1998 Contour/Mystique Workshop Manual, Section 211-05 or the 1999 Cougar Workshop Manual, Section 211-04. NOTE: KEYS INCLUDED WITH NEW IGNITION LOCK CYLINDERS ARE CUT FOR THE IGNITION ONLY. IN ORDER FOR THE KEYS TO FUNCTION IN THE DOOR LOCKS, THE KEYS MUST BE CUT TO THE DOOR CODE OF THE ORIGINAL LOCKSET. THE KEY CODE WILL CHANGE UPON INSTALLATION OF THE REPLACEMENT LOCK CYLINDER (FIGURE 1).

      tw2114~us~en~file=tb5525a.gif~gen~ref.gif
      Figure 1 - Article 98-21-14

      NOTE: ADVISE THE CUSTOMER TO DISCARD ALL KEYS THAT WERE CUT TO THE ORIGINAL IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER.
    6. Record the new key code on the repair order and provide to the customer. Advise the customer to record the new key code in a permanent location and to discard all references to the original key code. NOTE: REPLACEMENT IGNITION LOCK CYLINDERS ARE SHIPPED WITH NON-PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (PATS) KEYS. IF THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH PATS, OBTAIN TWO (2) ROTUNDA KEY BLANKS (OR OTHER FORD AUTHORIZED BLANKS, SUCH AS: ILCO, STRATTEC, CURTIS, HUF, OR VALEO) AND CUT TO THE REVISED KEY CODE. USE OF OTHER UNAUTHORIZED KEYS MAY CAUSE ERRATIC OPERATION OF THE PATS SYSTEM.
    7. Program PATS keys using one of the two following methods:
    (1) For vehicles with Integrated PATS (IPATS), function built into the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and built beginning:
    • 2/2/98 Kansas City (Contour/Mystique)
    • 2/16/98 Mexico (Contour/Mystique)
    • All 1999 Cougars
    Using the New Generation Star (NGS) Tester equipped with Service card (green) level 3.0 or higher:
    1. From NGS menu, select:
      • Service Bay Functions
      • PCM
      • Enter Security Access (10 minute delay)
      • Ignition Key-Code-Erase
    2. Disconnect Data Link Connector (DLC).
    3. Cycle the first non-programmed key in the ignition to run position for at least 3 seconds and then turn to the off position.
    4. Cycle the second non-programmed key in the ignition to run position. The theft indicator should prove out for 3 seconds.
    5. Verify the vehicle will now start using both keys.
    (2) For Contours/Mystiques with Stand Alone PATS and built before:
    • 2/2/98 Kansas City
    • 2/16/98 Mexico
    Using the New Generation Star (NGS) Tester equipped with Service card (green) level 1.0 or higher:
    1. From NGS menu, select:
      • Service Bay Functions
      • PATS
      • Ignition Key-Code-Erase (this process may take up to 8 minutes to complete )
    2. Disconnect DLC.
    3. Cycle first unprogrammed key in the ignition to run position. First key will program and allow vehicle to start.
    4. Again cycle first programmed key to run position. Within 15 seconds, remove original key and turn new unprogrammed key to run position. The theft indicator should prove out for 2 seconds. New key will start vehicle.
    5. Repeat this process for additional key programming. NOTE: THE FOLLOWING SHOULD BE NOTED FOR THE PART NUMBER BLOCK:
      • Part Number suffix will match center character in key code
      • Logo on key is Ford for Contour models
      • Logo on key is Mercury for Mystique and Cougar models


    PART NUMBER PART NAME F5RZ-11582-A Ignition Lock Cylinder (Contour) F5RZ-11582-B Ignition Lock Cylinder (Contour) F5RZ-11582-C Ignition Lock Cylinder (Contour) F5RZ-11582-D Ignition Lock Cylinder (Contour) F5RZ-11582-E Ignition Lock Cylinder (Contour) F5RY-11582-A Ignition Lock Cylinder (Mystique, Cougar) F5RY-11582-B Ignition Lock Cylinder (Mystique, Cougar) F5RY-11582-C Ignition Lock Cylinder (Mystique, Cougar) F5RY-11582-D Ignition Lock Cylinder (Mystique, Cougar) F5RY-11582-E Ignition Lock Cylinder (Mystique, Cougar
