Car Keys | Ford Transponder Computer Chip Keys In Texas

Transponder Computer Chip Keys

Sometimes you will run into a vehicle that has a transponder system that you didn’t expect or doesn’t have one when you thought it was equipped from the factory. The best way of keeping those surprises to a minimum is to pay attention to the details, use resources at your disposal, and learn as much about these systems as you can.

Ford Transponder Keys

Ford happens to be the easiest system to originate and program keys for. Once you have made the metal key, you will then need to duplicate the metal key on to a transponder key and then it’s time for programming. Ford started this system on the Mustang in 1996. At that time, you didn’t need programming equipment until 1998. With 96-97 Mustangs, you could program the chip key onboard. This means after you insert the chip key you will then turn it to the run position for 15 minutes. After the 1st 15 minute cycle, you will then turn the key to the off position and count to 3, then you will turn the key to the run position for another 15 minutes till the light goes out. You do this 3 times and then your key is programmed. This is called on  board programming. In 1998  Ford had a programmer called the New Generation Star Tester (NGS). This tester was a life saver for sure. It cut all the time down to 10 minutes and then the key was programmed. Things changed later on after CAN system entered the automotive industry.
