Ford MyKey Technology

What is Ford MyKey?

Ford MyKey is a very smart yet simple to operate piece of technology. It provides you with a great deal of control over your car – even when you’re not driving it. To programme Ford MyKey, all you need to do is access the settings on your car’s screen and locate the MyKey feature to enable or disable certain functions, set alerts and more.

If you decide to lend your car to a family member or friend, you can programme Ford MyKey to enforce certain restrictions. These include ensuring that traction control remains enabled, setting a specific speed limit and so on. Essentially, MyKey provides you with greater peace of mind when you entrust your car to somebody else

With Ford MyKey, you have to power to set your vehicle’s maximum speed limit. This is particularly convenient if you have decided to allow a younger, more inexperienced person to drive your car. Typically, this would be a son or daughter who is between 17 and 20 years old.

Almost 50 percent of parents are concerned about their child speeding. Therefore, MyKey is an invaluable feature that helps to deliver improved road safety among the young.

You can also use it to set a seatbelt reminder, reducing the volume of – or even disabling – the car’s audio system. A persistent chiming noise will sound, and a message will appear on the vehicle’s screen, asking the driver to buckle up in order to restore audio functionality. Until seatbelts are affixed, the chiming sound will persist, and it won’t be possible to use the car’s stereo system.

Ford MyKey also allows you to pre-set speed warnings so that when the car is about to hit, say, 50mph, an audio and visual cue will be initiated.

Anything else?

You will remain in possession of the master key – or Administration Key. Once inserted into the ignition, you can programme MyKey as you see fit by using a five-way-button pad.
