Go to a breakers yard and get a new ignition key and lock. Hotwiring a car is not as easy as they make it look in the films. You have to get power to the ignition circuit, you also need to light up your dashboard and stuff which is key dependent. When you have done that, you have to energise the starter motor and stop it when the engine fires. And talking of fires, they can happen during hotwiring!

SOURCE: I lost my ignition key

The best solution I can offer is to take your vehicle registration and your picture ID to your local Ford dealer. They will be able to cut you a new key by using the VIN on your registration. The picture ID is needed because they are not supposed to cut new keys for anyone except the registered owner of the vehicle. This method is the only solution that will guarantee that no damage will be done to the truck.
NOTE: this may not work if the ignition tumblers/cylinder have been replaced before.


Has this been helpfull? If so, please take a moment

Can i hot wire a 2004 suburban?


No. the ignition switch is not at the key its down the column at the switch which is activated by a rod. You can do it there but i would not. just call a key guy and save yourself a lot of money. If you do the wrong wires you can do a lot of damage.

Hope this helps. Mike

hotwiring will not unlock your ignition which also controls your steering lock perhaps you can call the dealership and have the courier a key will cost you more but it may still be better for you they will ask you for vin number and perhaps proof of ownership it cannot hurt to call and ask

2001 chevy venture lost key


You must get a new key from the dealer. Bring in the registration, and photo I.D. Then they will cut you a key. After that, try this procedure....
  1. With a master passkey III key (Black), turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Observe the Security telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn off.
  3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.
  5. With a master passkey III key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
  6. If it does not work, you will need to get it to the dealer.
