Hello I lost my key to my 1998 Lincoln Town car the key
has a chip could a locksmith help me with that type of
key.If not changes the ignition and key would I need any
codes to have it work properly.
98 is the first year the Town Car used the PATS (passive anti theft system), the powertrain control module needs to be programmed to accept any new transponder key. There is a diagnostic procedure that needs to be carried out to have it accept a new key. You would have to check with any locksmith shop if they can do it, or take it back to the dealership.
Best to go to a Ford or Lincoln dealer to get it done correctly the first time - a little more $s but they have the capability to program new FORD / LINCOLN "blanks" properly.
I have a 2003 Lincoln Town car when it starts it cut back off I done did everything some one told me about a chip in I need a computer is that right that my chip need to be updated
