How to get a key for the doors/trunk of 1996 ford mustang
If you go to a good key cutting service, they can use a quick forming epoxy resin that the squirt in the lock to get the required shape of your key, the then can make you a key from that hardened form, if you do not want to pay dealer prices, but you will require your proof of ownership & valid paperwork for the vehicle & proof of ID before touching the vehicle, but your nearest ford dealers should be able to locate your required key & order it for you with the Vin/chassis number & also the proof of ownership & valid vehicle documents...
I do hope this helps to resolve your problem....

Engine turns over but wont pick up fuel
Considering the history I suggest the next step should be to take a look inside the fuel tank. It is far from unknown for rags, plastic bags and suchlike to find a way inside and water ingress can also be a problem.
Once you can be assured of a consistent fuel supply the task of diagnosis can go forward. It is important to try and locate the problem while the problem actually exists because some electrical and mechanical faults do not leave a trail. A temporary tell-tale light could be fitted to the fuel pump supply for instance, as could a fuel pressure gauge. These things over time will provide clues toward finding the fault.
Your mechanic friend could show you how to check the spark for yourself or the injector pulse and lend you the tools...
Something that happens so rarely and seemingly randomly is likely to have an underlying pattern; length of journey, weather, place you bought fuel, parked on a hill and so forth. Finding the pattern can be invaluable.

If the light is on there are code stored ! Not in the PCM/ECM engine computer . In the BCM , do you know what that is ? body control module ! Need a factory scan tool or equivalent to check !

Why does everyone want to chop up things , by pass etc... The right fix could be cheaper then ruining your vehicle . Chopping up wiring harnesses . Their are by pass module , don't know how much they are . It may or may not fix the problem . Pulling the code and doing the diagnostics is still the best solution .
