Ignition Problems on 2001 Ford Expedition

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition an we changed my ignition switch- whatever it is called and got 2 new keys. However, it won't crank it. It's like we bought the keys from WalMart or somewhere. What can I do? Is there a security device or something on there?

Will a bad key ignition switch effect the inderctor light on the dishboard

New keys with cylinder may not have a transponder chip , or new keys will need to be programmed. you will require two keys equipped with proper transponder for your vehicle, and either new keys cloned with the old transponders. If you have lost the original keys , you will need someone to remove the original keys from the pcm , than marry the 2 new keys to the pcm. If you have an original key , try placing it by the lock cylinder when attempting to start with the key supplied with the new ignition cylinder.

How do I program my new ingition switch in my ford expedition

Usually you'll start by turning the ignition to the on or accessory spot, it may require you to pump the gas or brake one or more times, but the new switch should have come with programming instructions. If you got it from advance auto or something, they can give you a printout on how to do it.

Yes. You have to take the car to a ford dealer and have the new key programmed. This should solve your problem. Good luck.
