How do I create a Lincoln MyKey®*?

  1. Choose which of your keys will become your MyKey. The other will become an administrator key.
  2. Insert the key you want to program into the ignition. If your vehicle is equipped with a push-button start, place the intelligent access key fob into the backup slot.
  3. Start your vehicle.
  4. Create a MyKey using:
    • The information display:
      • Settings > MyKey > Create MyKey > Hold the OK button until you see a message prompting you to label the key as a MyKey.
    • Your vehicle's SYNC®** screen (if equipped):
      • Settings > Vehicle > MyKey > Create MyKey.
  5. Turn off your vehicle. The key will be restricted the next time it is used to start the vehicle.

Note: Make sure to label the MyKey so you can distinguish it from the admin keys.

Programming Optional MyKey Settings
