Hi there, Colorado Front Range Ford owners! Greetings from Mile High Locksmith, your full service car locksmith serving the entire Front Range.

Here’s a bit- “I have drove Fords exclusively when I could get away with one”, “…the Ford has got every other car skinned…”, and “…it don’t hurt anything to tell you what a fine car you got in the V8”.

Ford Key Blank Reference List

Please allow us to provide you with some key device technical info that will help you gauge what your Ford key replacement cost is likely to be. You see, in the past a car key was very similar to a house key. A key shaft and lock channel with tumblers, it was easy to create keys (sometimes even at a hardware store) and easy to steal cars! Like Clyde Barrow! But since about 1996, car key devices have really advanced in terms of security. First there was the “Transponder Key” and following that the “Keyless” ignition and entry Fob. The “old-fashioned” key is the least expensive to replace, the transponder is in the middle on costs, and the fob is the most expensive. So, the following is a nearly comprehensive list of Ford models, years and which key type each requires. You should find your vehicle on the list and we show the actual Key Name or Designation IN BOLD LIKE THIS.

F-150– 1992- Present; Bestselling truck in America! And though we can do key/ignition work on all versions of the F150, for ease we’ll keep the models modern here. ’80- ’91 it had an old-fashioned metal key identified as 1167FD or H51, ’92- ’93 it had an old-fashioned key identified as 1184FD-H54, and ’94- ’95 an old-fashioned key identified as 1193-FD or H67.

So, we’ll cover the “stand alone” F-250s first and then give you a combined description of the key arrays for those. Pay close attention here. From ’80- ’93 the 250 had the old-fashioned metal key, either 1167FD or H51. From ’94-’95 it had again an old-fashioned key, the 1184FD or H54.
