Ford Explorer 2020-2024 Owners Manual / MyKey™ / Creating a MyKey

Use the touchscreen to create a MyKey:

  1. Insert the key you want to program into the ignition. If your vehicle has a push-button start, place the remote control into the backup slot. See Passive Anti-Theft System.
  2. Switch the ignition on.
  3. Access the main menu in the touchscreen and then scroll through the menus to change the settings of your MyKey. From the MyKey menu select the option Create MyKey. See Settings.
  4. When prompted, hold the OK button until you see a message informing you to label this key as a MyKey. The programmed restrictions apply when you key off, open and close the driver door and restart your vehicle with the programmed key or remote control.
