Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
In order to program them yourself you will need 2 existing keys that are already programed to the vehicle. Step 1: Put the first key that starts it in the ignition and turn it to the run position then back to off and remove it. Step 2: Within 10 seconds repeat Step 1 with the second key that is programmed. Step 3: Within 10 seconds repeat Step 1 with the first new key and so on until you are on the last new key. Step 4: For the final key you will put it into the ignition and start the vehicle. The vehicle should start and all the keys should be programmed. Test out each key to make sure it starts the vehicle. If you don't have 2 existing keys you will have to take it to a Ford dealer and have them programmed. Also I'm not sure what the max amount of keys that can be programmed to a 98 Explorer is but I think its between 4 and 8.
