How to Turn Off Ford MyKey

Ford Key Fobs

Ford MyKey is a handy feature that allows you and your family members to remain safe while driving around the Opelika and Columbus, GA areas in your Ford vehicle. With that said, there are times when you may need to turn it off. If you plan on selling your car, you should know how to take care of a Ford MyKey disable. This task is simple and only takes a few minutes to complete.

Ford MyKey Disable Step-by-Step Guide

The menus being disabled on the Ford MyKey system only appear for the driver who has the admin key or the admin key fob. When you have either item, follow the steps below to clear all MyKey settings and return the MyKey to its original “admin key” status:

  1. Start the car. Wait for your onboard computer and screen to power up.
  2. On your steering wheel-mounted information display controls, press the left arrow button to access the main menu.
  3. On the main menu, select “Settings” by pressing “OK.”
  4. Under “Settings,” scroll to the option that says “MyKey,” then press “OK.”
  5. Under “MyKey,” search for the option that says “Clear MyKey.”
  6. With this setting selected, press and hold “OK” until the message “All MyKeys Cleared” appears on the screen.

What is Ford MyKey?

If you’re new to the Ford brand, this may all sound confusing, which is why it’s essential to familiarize yourself with the basics. Similar to Ford SYNC®, Ford Pass, and Ford Remote Start, Ford MyKey offers peace of mind and convenience during your Auburn drives. Let’s take a quick look at how it works:

  • Ford MyKey allows one driver — the admin — to program restrictions for all of the other keys that are used to drive that vehicle.
  • This can be used to promote good behavior for teens and less experienced drivers.
  • It works by restricting a driver’s top speed, decreasing distractions from entertainment features, and ensuring proper seat belt usage for passengers in the front seats.
  • When a driver starts the vehicle with a programmed MyKey, they are limited by the admin’s preselected speed and required to use any Ford safety features, parking aids, and Ford Co-Pilot360™ technologies that your vehicle may possess.

How to Program Keys with MyKey

Even after you’ve learned how to disable Ford MyKey, you may end up deciding that you’d like to turn it on again! We’ve included a helpful step-by-step reference guide so you can reprogram your MyKey feature at a moment’s notice:

  1. Insert the key you want to program into the ignition. If your Ford has push-button start, insert the key into the backup slot.
  2. Using the left arrow in your information display controls, access the main menu and navigate to “Settings.”
  3. Scroll down and select “MyKey,” then select “Create MyKey” from the new menu.
  4. The system will prompt you to select “OK,” thereby labeling the key that’s in the ignition as a MyKey.
  5. From this point forward, the key will be restricted upon starting up the vehicle until Ford MyKey is disabled.

To change the restriction settings, vehicle speed minders, and audio system controls for your MyKeys, start your vehicle with an admin key and navigate back to the “MyKey” menu. Once you’re there, select the feature that you want to change the settings for, and make adjustments as necessary.

How to Turn off MyKey Volume Limit

To help prevent distracted driving, you have the option of limiting the audio volume in your Ford vehicle to a maximum of 45 percent. With the MyKey volume limited, a message will show up on the display screen if the driver tries to exceed the settings. If you prefer not to have the MyKey volume limited, you can remove the Ford MyKey volume limit in just a few simple steps. Find out how to turn off the MyKey volume limit below. 

  1. Start the vehicle and wait for the display screen to appear. 
  2. Press the left arrow button on the steering wheel controls to reach the main menu. 
  3. Select “Settings,” then click “OK.”
  4. Find “MyKey” and select “OK” once more. 
  5. Here you will find a menu, which you can navigate through with the arrow keys. When you find the Ford MyKey volume limit feature, turn the limit off.
