Best Answer

The transponder is in the head of the key. The antennae for the transponder is the plastic ring around where the key is inserted. It can be bypassed by putting the head of the key under the cover of the column, next to the antennae. A normal mechanical key would then start the vehicle. Useful in remote start applications.

What are common problems for 1999 ford explorer no start?

If the battery is fully charged, check to see if the Security / Theft light in the instrument panel is flashing. If it is flashing instead of staying solid OR going out completely after turning the key to the run position you may have a problem with the transponder chip inside of the key. If the theft light in the instrument cluster does not flash or do anything unusual than your problem is not with the transponder key and must be located elsewhere in the vehicle. If you need more information of Ford transponder keys you can call a locksmith, who might be able to help you.
