That key is most likely what they call a valet key. The chip in it has not been programed so it wont interface with the onboard computer. Unfortunately Ford gets close to $100.00 to program it.

How to start a Ford Contour with out my key


Probably can't be done if it is late enough to be fitted with a security system. In that case the key will have a coded transponder which the system will recognise and send a signal the the engine management to switch it on.

You either need a correctly coded key or remove the engine ECU and have it decoded.

I have tried to unlock steering back and forth and turning the key, but it just won't unlock


Hi Neil:
Check the gear shift lever to make sure it is fully in the park position. Then turn the steering wheel to relieve pressure on the key, and try to start the engine. Once it starts, press on the brake pedal, turn the steering towards the resistance, and try to get it out of park.

1998 Ford Escort steering wheel lock will not unlock. Seems jammed.


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

I need a 1998 mazda 323 ba immobiliser bypass key or another solution to start my car. Can anyone help me?


I know this question is old but I recently encountered a similar problem with my 1995 323 BA and this may help someone else. Override the immobilizer by doing the following:


open the car via the drivers door
put the key in the ignition
turn the key to ACC
now turn the key to ON
repeat the last 2 steps X 12 quickly (ignore the indicators flashing and the central locking activating).
the dashboard should be lighting up as normal.
Now turn the key to START

My stering wheel is lock how can i unlocked


If the steering wheel is under pressure (can happen even with the wheels straight ahead) the lock mechanism can be putting pressure on the key making it very hard for the key to release the lock mechanism. Try pulling on the wheel in one direction and turning the key. If nothing, try turning the wheel the other direction and try turning the key. You may need to replace the lock mechanism. This usually involves being able to turn the key in the lock or having to drill the lock. You are probably going to need a locksmith for this one. You will need a replacement lock cyliner mechanism if the locksmith has to punch the lock.

Turns out they were using a key for one of their friends dodge vehicle. (The keys looked identical) Wierd that it would unlock the steering wheel though. Anyways, once they realized their mistake and used the right freakin' key, everything worked just fine!
