I have lost my keys to 2000 Mercury Sable. The local Ford House says they do not have key codes for anything older than 2003. My Vin # XXXXX XXXXX

The link below says they have the key code but cannot give it to me because I am not a NASTF Registry Participant. Can anyone help me? Thanks so much. Mo Howard

Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question.

A good majority of locksnmiths are members of the NASTF registry and in some cases can access the code you need and make you a new set of keys some can even do it with out being members. If you do not have a NASTF locksmith in your area then unfrotunately the only other way to resolve this issue is to drill the old lock out and replace the key and tunbler assembly . Eaither way the new key will require reprogramming.
