Just purchased a '97 Taurus GL wagon. What's the procedure for removing the ignition key/lock cylinder? There is NO KEY for this car. Thanks.

Without the key you will have to drill it out I believe.

Have you tried going to Ford to see if they still have a record of what key went with that car?

I think post-'96 they kept records of all the key codes. The Ford dealer should be able to cut you a new one. A locksmith can even do it without a record, for about 50-60 bucks

Ford has the key code records matched to the VIN for '97 and up. You will have to go to a Ford dealer and prove ownership. You're better off getting the code from a dealer and having a locksmith cut the keys- it'll be cheaper.

Don't these cars have a chip built into the key which would require that the you pay the dealership to provide the new key. Without the chip the key cut by a locksmith will only work one time

Huh?

He has a GL, which IIRC didn't get PATS until '98.

I have removed the ignition switch and able to start the car with a screwdriver. I need to remove the ignition lock assembly, but as I understand it, I must be able to turn the key around 60 degrees to align the pin hole and insert a pin/wire into the cylinder to remove it. Since I can't turn the key more than 10 degrees, is there any other way to remove the lock assembly?Thanks in advance for any help.
You can drill out the retaining pin through the hole in the column cover.
