Hello, once they get over 10 years old, service information availble to pull key code starts to drop off, so you can try contacting your local ford dealer with proof of ownership of the vehicle to get a key cut. This should also be a PATS antihtheft key as well. If you lost the keys, you will need to have the keys reprogrammed to the vehicle using a dealer style scan tool and must have 2 keys to program the vehicle for it to run. Your other option is to get with a local locksmith that can cut and program keys on site and come to you.
