Ford Mustang Owners Manual: Principles of operation

MyKey allows you to program keys with restricted driving modes to promote good driving habits. You can use all but one of the keys programmed to your vehicle with these restricted modes.

Any keys that have not been programmed are referred to as administrator keys or admin keys. These can be used to:

create a restricted key program optional MyKey settings clear all MyKey features.

When you have programmed a MyKey, you can access the following information using the information display: The number of admin keys and MyKeys are programmed to your vehicle.

The total distance your vehicle has traveled using a MyKey.

Note

: Switch the ignition on to use the system.

Note

: All MyKeys are programmed to the same settings. You cannot program them individually.

Non-configurable Settings

The following settings cannot be changed by an admin key user : Belt-minder. You cannot disable this feature. The audio system will mute when the front seat occupants safety belts are not fastened.

Driver assist features, if equipped on your vehicle, are forced on: parking aid, blind spot information system (BLIS) with cross traffic alert, lane departure warning and forward collision warning system.

Configurable Settings

With an admin key, you can configure certain MyKey settings when you first create a MyKey and before you recycle the key or restart the vehicle. You can also change the settings afterward with an admin key.

You cannot override the set speed by fully depressing the accelerator pedal or by setting cruise control.
