A common problem to happen with vehicles over time is a worn ignition or worn key. If you are having trouble turning your key in your ignition, bring it to our shop ASAP before it locks up completely. We can cut keys to factory specific code so that the depths of your key are accurate to your models specified depths down to the thousandth of a millimeter. If that doesn’t work, our technicians are specially trained to work on your ignition without causing any damage.
If your ignition is locked up and you can not turn it at all, do not force it. Give us a call and we can troubleshoot over the phone before sending a technician to your location. Do not worry, the technician will be prepared to fix your ignition on site. He will arrive in a van full of everything he will need: tools, ignition kits, and brand new ignitions to get you going right away! Give us a call and we will send somebody immediately.
Since the late 90’s and early 00’s, most Ford models have been equipped with the added security of using a microchip transponder in your key that communicates with the immobilizer when it is near to allow your car to start. If you use a regular metal key from a hardware store, it will not start your engine for longer than a couple seconds. This makes it so that people can not easily make copies of your keys if they borrow it or hold on to your keys for a little while. In order to make a transponder key able to start your vehicle, you need a sophisticated computer to hook up directly to your car’s system through the OBD to manually program the microchip and immobilizer to recognize each other. Bring your keys AND your car if you want an extra key that will work with your vehicle.
However, if all of your keys have been lost or stolen, you won’t be able to bring the vehicle in to our shop. In that case, give us a call at (206) 823-2288 and we will send a technician to your vehicle to cut and program a key to your vehicle from scratch.
