This is an available feature that lets you configure the settings (such as speed, music volume, alerts, etc.) of your Ford car, truck, or SUV, even during those times that you are not behind the wheel. The MyKey® feature is a highly-useful learning tool, whether you have a first-time driver in the family or you're just trying to improve your overall driving experience. Here at Crouse Ford, your local Ford dealer in MD, we think that you will enjoy how interactive and informative the optional MyKey® feature is and how it will give you peace of mind about the safety of whoever is driving your Ford.

How To Use MyKey®

The available MyKey® feature allows you to program your keys (besides one admin key) with various restrictive vehicle settings in order to encourage safe and smart driving habits. Once MyKey® is enabled, the default settings include:

  • Your seat belt reminder will be turned on and your audio system will be placed on mute if the front seat passengers' seat belts are not properly fastened.

  • Your low fuel or low charge warning will go off earlier than normal so that you have advance notice refuel or recharge your Ford.

  • Any driver-assist features, like parking aids and the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross Traffic Alert, that you have will be activated. Our staff at Crouse Ford, your local Ford dealership in Maryland, can tell you more about this.

With your admin key, you will be able to configure MyKey® to do the following:

  • Set a vehicle speed limit. If that limit is reached, the MyKey® display will show warnings and sound an audible tone. Whoever is driving your Ford will not be able to override the limit by either fully pressing the accelerator pedal down or using cruise control.

  • Controlling your volume. Through the available MyKey® feature, you can set the maximum volume of your audio system to 45%. This component helps reduce the number of distractions inside your Ford. A warning message will appear if the driver tries to go beyond 45%.

  • Turn on safety features. You will be able to activate the "always on" setting for the AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control (ESC), traction control, 911 Assist, and Emergency Assist. The current driver will not be able to switch these settings off.

These features and many others are all accessible through the optional MyKey® feature. Our experienced staff at Crouse Ford, your local Ford dealer in MD, cannot wait to show you how convenient this feature is, as well how secure you will feel about the well-being of everyone traveling with you.
