How do I clear Lincoln MyKey® settings?

You can use the information display or your vehicle's SYNC®* screen (if equipped) to clear the MyKey settings.

You can clear or change your MyKey settings as long as you do not turn off the vehicle after you create the MyKey. However, once you turn the vehicle off, you will need an admin key to change or clear your MyKey settings. If you do not have an admin key, you will need to purchase a new key from your Lincoln Dealer

Using the Information Display

  1. Turn on your vehicle using an admin key. 
  2. Tab through the message center using the OK or the button on the steering wheel:
    • Select Settings.
    • Select MyKey.
    • Select Clear MyKey.
    • Hold the OK button until you see a message indicating that all MyKeys cleared.

Using the SYNC screen

  1. Turn on your vehicle using an admin key.
  2. Tap Settings on your vehicle's SYNC screen.
  3. Select Vehicle.
  4. Tap MyKey and follow the instructions to clear MyKey. A confirmation message will appear in the display after you finish clearing your MyKeys.

Note: When you clear your MyKeys, you remove all restrictions and return all MyKeys to their original admin key status. You cannot remove the MyKey restrictions individually.
