WHAT IS FORD MYKEY?

Do you have a teenager who drives in your family?

If yes, you’ll be amazed at what their technology can do for you.

It’s designed to help parents encourage their teens to drive safely and responsibly.

They will give you extra peace of mind when your young drivers are on the road.

Find out more about its features, and then come test drive a Ford equipped with technology at our dealership.

WHAT DOES FORD MYKEY DO?

It helps you control how your Ford is driven, making sure it’s safe and responsible.

You can set speed limits, and audio volume, and require seat belt use.

When someone drives your Ford with their programmed technology, they can’t change these settings.

This ensures that your teen driver or fleet driver behaves responsibly.

HOW DOES FORD MYKEY WORK?

When you put in a programmed system into the ignition, the system reads its special chip and figures out the MyKey code.

This code turns on the settings you picked.

If your teen driver uses the key you programmed, they have to follow the rules and use the settings you picked.

WHAT CAN FORD MYKEY CONTROL?

Your Ford MyKey lets you control various settings based on your Ford model and SYNC technology.

Here are some things it can do:
