Key Information:

There are 10 different types of key shared between the mondeo Mk1 and Mk2. (Mk3 Not detailed)


Type 1:

This key was supplied with most Mk1 mondeos and consists of a small plastic bar and the key. Its designed as a spare only and the Key Number is normally attached to it printed on a small plastic tag.


Type 2:

This is the basic key, solid in design without any openings. Normally supplied as a pair on LX and models below.


Type 3:

This is classed as the primary drivers key and consists of a small torch incorporated into the case. Depress the "Ford" Emblem on the reverse side to slide the torch unit out of the housing.


Type 4:

One key supplied with all models with InfraRed remote central locking. This key has a sender unit incorporated in it with the transmitter pointing out by the key itself. Button one unlocks, button two locks. Press button two twice within 3 seconds to double lock the car. The LED will only illuminate if the button is held in for 2 seconds. Depress the small indent on the rear of the key to slide out the transmitter assembly and access the batteries.

This key also requires programming to work correctly > See Instructions


Type 5:

Late Mk1 models and most Mk2 models come with this key. The Red square houses the PATS transmitter which is required to bypass the immobiliser on start-up. If you the PATS immobiliser system and you need to have a spare key cut, take note that without a PATS transmitter embedded in the key your car will not start!


Type 6:

Supplied for only a brief period of time, this is the basic drivers key with torch incorporated into it however it also has a PATS transmitter embedded into it.


 

Type 7:

Supplied to all mondeos with PATS immobiliser fitted, this key is the master. It's needed to program new PATS keys. However it's normally kept in a secure place by the owner and isn't normally passed over when they sell the car so make sure you ask for it! Should you need to have a key cut at a later date then programming without this master costs around £100.


Type 8:

Supplied with all mondeos with PATS immobilisers and InfraRed central locking. Again without the PATS transmitted embedded in the key the car will not start. The PATS transmitter can be removed from this key (Glass like tube with red cap casing) and the key isn't always shown with a red square on it.

This key also requires programming to work correctly > See Instructions


Type 9:

Supplied with all mondeos with PATS immobilisers and Radio Frequency locking. Note the absence of a transmitting "eye" next to the key shaft. The LED also moves position to aid identification and again this key may or may not have a red square shown on it.

This key also requires programming to work correctly > See Instructions


Type 10:

The last of the keys, supplied only with later Mk2 models and as replacements should an original Mk2 key fail. Three buttons are lock, unlock (twice within 3 seconds to double lock) and boot release. The PATS transmitter is incorporated into the central locking transmitter and can be removed separately by depressing the tab on the rear of the key.

This key also requires programming to work correctly > See Instructions
