its not possible you need a minimmum of two keys to program a new key you need your old key and a new one sorry.

The 4 cylinder model does not have special keys. The V6 equipped cars have an anti-theft system called PATS (Passive Anti-theft Transponder System). The keys have an RF chip that has to be programmed to the computer. You can order new keys through the dealer, locksmith or online, but they have to be programmed into the computer before they will work. On early Contours and Mystiques you only need one working key to program additional keys. On later Contours and Mystiques you need two working keys to program additional keys. If you don't have a working key (or two) the dealer or a locksmith will be needed to program the key.

Go to a Ford dealership and bring with you the VIN of the vehicle and personal identification and they will make you a new key.

1998 Explorer uses a PATS II system with a transponder in the keyhead.

You could use skp100 to program the key by yourself even if all keys are lost. Easy to operate in 5 seconds!

if it has a "smart key" you will have to take it to a locksmith who will program a new key and cut it. It was 100 dollars for me because I had only 1 key. If you have 2 keys, it will be about 30 dollars. THIS IS NOT FORD DEALER PRICES!!!

Jaguar didn't use transponder keys until 1998 on the XJ & XKs. After 1998, all Jaguars use a transponder key.

Ebay sales them but then after you get the replacement you may have to have a Ford dealer program it to work with the ignition switch.

This information can be found in the owner's manual that came with your new Ford.
