    Duplicate keys may be programmed to 1996 and '97 Fords using a simple on-board procedure, as long as you have one existing programmed key. Beginning in 1998, with most models you must have two existing keys to program an additional key. If you only have one key or no keys, the keys must be programmed using our diagnostic equipment.

    Rescue Ron is able to duplicate and originate all Ford, Lincoln and Mercury chip keys.
