What is the MyKey on Ford Vehicles?

Have you heard about the MyKey on new Ford vehicles? Ford is dedicated to helping new drivers and teens drive responsibly. The Ford MyKey technology helps parents encourage their teenaged children to spend their time behind the wheel as safely as possible. This revolutionary technology can restrict teens from speeding, remind them to wear their seatbelt, and more, in an effort to encourage safe driving habits.

At Franklin's Spring Creek Ford, safety is one of our main priorities. Learn how the MyKey works and how to program your key to keep your teenage driver safe.

 

How Does the Ford MyKey Work?

With the Ford MyKey you can program your key to a restricted driving mode setting to promote good driving habits like using your seatbelt, limiting speeding, and decreasing audio volume.

How Can I Program the Ford MyKey?

You can program any key through your vehicle's message center. When you insert your programmed key into the ignition, the system reads its transponder chip and identifies the MyKey code. This will activate the settings you've selected.

Follow these three steps for programming or reprogramming your MyKey:
  1. Choose one of the two keys your new vehicle came with to serve as the MyKey. The other will serve as the administrator key.
  2. Insert the MyKey into the key fob slot, then tap through the message center, using the steering wheel controls, until you've reached the MyKey section.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen and choose the options you'd like. When the MyKey is set up, simply turn the engine off and remove the key.

Ford MyKey Features

The MyKey system on Ford has 4 primary features, and you can customize them based on your unique concerns:
  1. The Belt Minder: This feature provides a six-second reminder chime every 30 seconds to remind the people in the front seat to fasten their safety belts. It will also mute the audio system until the seat belts are fastened.
  2. Top Speed Settings: Using MyKey, you can program the vehicle to restrict driving at top speeds. You can limit a vehicle's top speed at four different settings - 65, 70, 75 or 80 mph.
  3. Earlier Low Fuel Warning: Perhaps your young driver has a habit for ignoring the gas light until it's too late. The MyKey system provides an option to present a warning at 75 miles to empty, rather than the standard warning at 50 miles to empty.
  4. Screen Radio Content: You can block all stations labeled as "explicit" by Sirius Satellite Radio.
Additional safety precautions include preventing of the driver from turning off the Ford Parking aid system, the Blind Spot Information System and the cross-traffic alerts. It will also activate the Do Not Disturb feature, so you can block calls and text messages while the car is in motion.

For concerned parents, the MyKey offers peace of mind when young drivers are out on the road by themselves.
