One of the benefits of driving a new Ford in Chicago and beyond is the wide range of innovative features behind the wheel! Depending on your make and model, you can integrate your smartphone of choice, stay safe with Ford Co-Pilot 360, and keep everyone in the cabin informed and entertained with SYNC 4! If you drive a Ford, you may have come across the term “MyKey.” What is MyKey in Ford? In short, it’s a programmable key that you can give to a teen driver or family member that has preset settings for climate, speed, safety, and more. The team at Sutton Ford has all the details on how MyKey works and how to program it in the guide below – check it out!



Ford MyKey Features

Now that we’ve given a short answer to the question of, “what is the Ford MyKey feature,” let’s go over this innovative technology in more detail! With Ford MyKey, you can use a master “admin key” to apply settings to any other Ford key. Then, when someone uses that key behind the wheel, your settings will be applied to your Ford. You can set up MyKey through your Ford’s infotainment system–we’ll get into the setup process in more detail below. For now, here’s a list of the standard and optional settings you can configure with MyKey:

  • Vehicle speed limit
  • Audio volume
  • Seatbelt reminders
  • Low fuel warning
  • Automatic safety or driver assistance features
  • Restricted touchscreen operation
  • Filtered/screened satellite radio content

How to Set Up Ford MyKey

The setup process for MyKey has been designed to be simple, streamlined, and intuitive. All you need are at least two Ford keys! Just climb behind the wheel and follow these steps:

  1. Insert the key you want to program as a MyKey into the ignition, or place the key fob into the backup slot if your Ford has push-button start.
  2. Turn on the ignition and select Settings from your infotainment display’s main menu.
  3. Select “Create MyKey.”
  4. Hold the OK button until you see a prompt to label the key as a MyKey.
  5. Create your MyKey settings. Be aware that once you turn your vehicle off, you’ll need to use your admin key to alter or clear your MyKey settings.
