Using MyKey with Remote Start Systems

MyKey is not compatible with non-Ford approved aftermarket remote start systems. If you choose to install a remote start system please see your authorized dealer for a Ford approved remote start system.

When using a Ford-approved remote start system, the default settings will recognize the remote start system as an additional admin Key with its associated privileges. You should program the remote start system as a MyKey in addition to the key that you have already programmed as a MyKey . To program the remote start system as MyKey , do the following:

1. Enter the vehicle and close all doors.

2. Remote start the vehicle using a remote start fob.

3. Follow steps 1-4 in the Create a MyKey section.

Note: For all vehicles, the number of MYKEY(S) PROGRAMMED or ADMIN KEYS PROGRAMMED that is displayed in the MyKey System Status menus will include the remote start system as an additional key in the total count. See the Check MyKey System Status section.

Note: For all vehicles with remote start installed, it is possible to program all original vehicle keys as MyKeys , in which case, you will need to use your remote start system to reset all MyKeys as admin keys by doing the following:

1. Enter the vehicle, close all doors.

2. Remote start the vehicle using your remote start fob.

3. Follow Steps 1-4 in the Clear MyKey section.
