Ford Escape: MyKey - Locks and Security - Ford Escape Owner's ManualFord Escape: MyKey

The MyKey feature allows you to program a restricted driving mode to promote good driving habits. All but one of the keys programmed to the vehicle can be activated as a MyKey . The key will remain restricted until MyKey is cleared. Any remaining keys are referred to as an “administrator key” or admin key. The admin key can be used to create a MyKey , program optional MyKey settings, and clear the MyKey feature. When the MyKey feature is enabled the user can use System Check in the message center to see how many MyKeys and admin keys are programmed to the vehicle, and how many total miles have been driven with the MyKey active.
