If your keys are lost or stolen and you don’t have a spare coded key you will need to have your vehicle towed to Shanahan Ford. The key codes will need to be erased from your vehicle and new coded keys will need to be programmed.
Replacing coded keys can be very costly. Store an extra programmed key away from the vehicle in a safe place to help prevent any inconveniences. Please visit Shanahan Ford to purchase additional spare or replacement keys.
Programming Spare Keys
A maximum of eight keys can be coded for your vehicle. Only programmable keys can be used. To program coded key yourself, you will need two previously programmed coded keys ( keys that already start your vehicle’s engine ) and a new unprogramed key readily accessible for timely implementation of each step of the procedure.
If two previously programmed keys are not available you must bring your vehicle to Shanahan Ford to have your key programmed.
1. Insert the first previously programmed key into the ignition and turn to the on position for at least one second but not more than 10 seconds. DO NOT START YOUR VEHICLE.
2. Within 10 seconds of removing your first key insert your second previously programmed key into the ignition and repeat step 1.
3. Within 10 seconds of removing your second programmed key insert your new unprogrammed key and repeat step 1 this will program your new key.
If successful the new coded key will start your vehicle’s engine and your theft indicator light will light up for 3 seconds then go out.
If not successful, the new key will not start the vehicle’s engine and the theft indicator will blink on and off. You may have to repeat the procedure and if it still fails you will have to bring it into Shanahan Ford to have your spare key programmed.
