been noticing, since I rekey a lot of 10 cut Ford locks for the
local dealer, an oddity...
the locks have the 2nd wafer missing, as per the packaging idea,
but the FUNNY THING I am seeing is the FIRST wafer is missing the
spring to push it down....its in the SECOND hole
1 would be accident, 2-ehh, and off day, but the last 2 MONTHS?
someone needs to talk to the factory......

I wonder how many where made like that? I've seen a lot of mis marked pins
too: #2 in a #1 package.
I'll be glad when I don't see that many more ten cuts. Too big of a pain
trying to progress the last four cuts for the ignition even with my try out
I like the 8 cuts. Now if we can only get Ford to do something about that
I LOVE the Ford grease, especially in my area IN THE WINTER...
LOCKOUT city... and nothing will cleean it out...
I use red wheel bearing greas when I repin one for the local
FOrd-no problems/failures/ or callbacks now in several years.

sure is, but I got real good at yanking truck doors off to get
those cuts, then a progression chart that came with the
Determinator is THE best IMO, for getting the rest figured out.
today, was a 98 Mustang, convertible...
got the key code... didn't work EXCEPT the glove box... HMM,
maybe its right.....thats 3 cuts...
trunk? couldn't even FEEL the wafers.... got some PB Blaster and
SOAKED the trunk lock....
wiggled and HAMMERED with a 4 oz ball peen... YEA, it
right door. NADA... soaked with the same and DROVE the key in
with the hammer... (locks are only $36 a piece and I was getting
tired of this car already...it WAS a piece of junk anyhow...
battery dead as well)
the right freed up, YEA...
LEFT DOOR... NO resistance to inserting the key AT ALL... all
the wafers stuck somewhere...
onto the ignition, KNOW the key is right, because between the
glove lock, trunk and door, its covered....
soaked it again with PB Blaster, and stuck the key in and out
several times... still no turn...
took the trusty baby ball peen and hammered it as well...
SUCCESS... right code, the lock turned... I left them with it...
needs battery THEN we will discuss the transponders, PLUS the
the car is LITERALLY not worth the expense, tho- but its their

Worked on a 98 truck the other day that they never used the key to unlock
the doors. They used the remote. Stuck the blank in and the wafers didn't
drop. I knew the EEZ Reader would read all ones so I sprayed the locks on
the doors and the tail gate with WD 40 about 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 times.
After about 15 minutes they broke loose. I then used the EEZ Reader to make
the door cuts off the right door and tail gate and put a number 2 cut on the
tip and it started right up.
It took too long.
Worked on plenty junk Mustangs. Oh, get that front end and glue it to that
rear end and call a locksmith to make a key the take it to the alignment
shop. Sound right?
