Electronic ignition keys on your Ford vehicle were first introduced in the early 2000s and are a means of electronic safety for your vehicle. Inserting a programmed key into your ignition is the only way to start your vehicle, providing an extra security measure against hot-wiring or theft. You can program or reprogram your electronic key to your Ford vehicle in just minutes from your home, as long as you have the two dealer-programmed keys that the system was installed with.
