Customer Question
I have a 2000...

I have a 2000 Ford Mustang V6 the key was lost and I have a backup key that is just a solid silver key that will go in the ignition and turn it over but will not start can you tell me what I need to do and I do appreciate this

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

No I believe it's the original key it's an 1196fd h75 ilco USA

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

I have a 2000 Ford Mustang V6 that I lost the key and the alarm for and I found looks like the original key which is got letters on it 1196fd h75 ILco USA but this key is just a solid silver key it goes into the ignition and it opens the doors and the car turns over but will not start can you help

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes at this point I do not know where the other key is and the little alarm block that was separate from the key and would also like to know if there's a way that I can have that taken off after getting this one going thank you

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Are you there
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 9 months ago

ok, then yoy will need to get a new radio chip key and have it cut to the valet key, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come out to the car, recut the new key and program the key into the computer,

Is there not another way to get by the Anti-Theft
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 9 months ago

No, if the computer does not see the radio signal from the key, it will not allow it to start, the locksmths are alot cheaper than the dealer our local locksmith charges 70 dollars to come out and do this, the dealer is over 200 dollars and you have to tow it to them, but until it sees a signal from the key, it WILL NOT start.Tim

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.

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.

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.
