Replace your own car key
No more trips to the dealer to replace a lost key. The product development division of Louisville, Kentucky-based Car Keys Express released a consumer-programmable, universal aftermarket key for Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. The key, with integrated remote, is said to have the same functionality as standard OEM versions and was scheduled to be available for purchase in August. This key is the second device to be released in the company’s new product line, Simple™ Key. Each key in the product line allows retailers to offer consumers a simple, “do-it-yourself” solution for replacing modern car keys. These products include a universal key and, if required, an EZ Installer™, allowing customers to pair the key to their vehicle. Once cut, consumers follow instructions to pair the key in just a few minutes.
