Can I change steering column with
out interfering with the security

1 Answer


What type of key did you have made? My 99 explorer had a chip in it, so I have to purchase a key with a chip. Usually there is a procedure one had to go through when a second key is made, in order for the new key to work. Check to find the procedure. You did have at least one original key, right?
