I would find "locksmith" in the yellow pages and give one a call. the car is so old that i do not think a dealer could be of any help, but you could try that also. one of those two places could set you on the right path.

I need the ignition key code for a 2007 ford f150 xl, and the dealer said it could only go back five years. Can I find it anywhere myself?


96 million codes for this year. Sorry, you have to pay the price and have it redone. Two keys and a reprogram. Also have to fix what is bad.

I,ve lost my keys for my 98 ford escort wagon the manual says its key coded and i don't have a master key what are my options


I assume that you have already checked inside the owners manual package for the code, or a key tag.

A Ford Dealership should be able to help you. They will want specific information about the car and you will have to provide proof of ownership of the car.

This will probably cost $300-$400. Making a spare key before you lose them is always much cheaper.

I have no key to my 1993 ford ranger xlt 4.0 Auto 2wd Ignition switch removal and Installation


In most cases you will have to drill it.
There are videos on Youtube that show how its done.
Most all Ford locks in the late 80s and early 90s are the same style.

Lost my key and cant statr my car how do i use a scewdriver in the ignition to start it?


you can't use a screwdriver in the ignition switch to start the engine,if you try you will most likely destroy it & have to replace it,( the ignition switch) depending on the model of your vehicle you may be able to go to a dealer & buy a replacement key,if you have an owners manual for the vehicle the key number may be in it otherwise you might have to get a locksmith to see if they can cut you another key.......hope this helps......cheers.

Replace cylinder without the old key (lost). I have depressed the retaining pin ok, but the cylinder seems 'sticy' and won't pull out. How hard is it supposed to be to pull the old cylinder out...


The problem you are experiencing is because the retainint pin will not push in unless the ignition switch is turned to the "ON" position. This cannot happen if you do not have the key.

If the key is lost or the cylinder will not turn for any other reason, then the retaining pin must be DRILLED out using a 1/8" drill bit. (see picture)

NOTE: When drilling out the retaining pin, take care not to damage the cover cast housing or the hazard flasher switch.

I lost my key for an 98 ford explorer and i just got a key made but wont trun the locksmith made a key from the door lock we put it in the ignition but it wont trun


There should be 8 cuts total on the key. While the door and the ignition share some of the same cuts you cannot get all the cuts from one cylinder. I believe that the door cylinder only uses 6 cuts and the ignition cylinder uses 7 cuts. The cut closest to the head of the key is #1 and the cut closest to the tip is #8. If I remember correctly the ignition cylinder uses cuts 1 - 7 and the door cylinder uses cuts 3 - 8.If the locksmith cannot decode the ignition cylinder you can try to contact you local ford dealer and see if they can find a key code and cut a key from that otherwise you may have to replace your ignition cylinder.

No keys


If you want to initiate a new master key.... 1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen minutes.
2. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder OFF and then back to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
3. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back ON (RUN) position. The dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
4. After the security light stops flashing the third time, the new key has been programmed into the vehicles computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the vehicles computer.

The dealership should be able to do this for you without a current key, of course this means towing the vehicle to them. See if they will sell you a key and you program it yourself.

hope this helps. I found the above info at FordF150.net

How do I replace the ignition (keys's lost) in the steering?


did u get a key that was the proper code? these keys have a little piece of resistive wire embedded in the key, does the key u had made have that? if not it will not work, u can't just get a key cut, they have numbers to select the proper resistance value for the key to work with your security system.
