This purchase/service includes 1 new Ford ignition lock and 1 precut key matched to your key code.for a 1998-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis. The lock and key included with this purchase is matched to your key code, which means the lock can be installed and used with your working transponder key without the additional cost of needing another transponder key cut and programmed to work in your vehicle, or the inconvenience of having to carry around several different keys to operate your vehicle. The key included with this lock is a regular key and not a transponder key. Why is a regular key included with this purchase instead of a transponder key when most Mercury Grand Marquis vehicles had a transponder system? Because this purchase is primarily for replacing a defective ignition lock and most people already have a good working key for use in this lock. If your Ford vehicle also needs a new transponder key because you lost your key or your key is worn, then the key included with the lock can be used to duplicate the cuts to a new transponder key. The cuts on the key included with this lock are fresh and new without any wear. The lock is guaranteed to be rekeyed to match your key code and the key is guaranteed to be cut to your key code. You can email your key code after purchasing this item by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or include the key code with your Paypal payment during the checkout process if you choose to pay through Paypal.
