U can't program this at home, it takes a GM Tech II scanner, u could have the new lock keyed to your old key, any locksmith can do this, then it will not trigger the system and lock u out, this of course means u need the old key

How can i reprogram a new ignition switch cylinder?


Well sorry to tell you if you have a PATS key for your ignition you will have to take it to your Ford dealer to get your keys programmed. My advise to you is just to get 1 key programmed then tape it to your steering column and get regular keys from the hardware store cut to fit your ignition that way if you misplace it it only costs you $2.00 to get a new 1 made.
