Customer Question
I set the mykey...

I set the mykey on my 2013 Ford Explorer and I only have 1 key to the vehicle I'm lost so very very lost☹️

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have a backup key? Maybe the emergency kind that fits in your wallet?

No only 1 key came with the vehicle

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?

I called theFord Dealership near my house to make an appointment and that's going to cost me

Mechanic's Assistant: Emailing***@******.*** is the best way to reach customer service.

Okay will do Thanks

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
