The following are the key programming procedures for the year Lincoln Mark MKS 2009, 2010 and 2011.
ADD KEY (Must have two working original keys):
1. Insert the first previously programmed coded keys into the ignition.
2. Turn the ignition from the 1 (LOCK) position to the 3 (RUN) position. Keep the ignition in the 3 (RUN) position for at least 3 seconds, but no more than 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition to the 1 (LOCK) position and remove the first coded key from the ignition.
4. Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition to the 1 (LOCK) position, insert the second previously coded key into the ignition.
5. Turn the ignition from the 1 (LOCK) position to the 3 (RUN) position. Keep the ignition in the 3 (RUN) position for at least 3 seconds, but no more than 10 seconds.
6. Turn the ignition to the 1 (LOCK) position and remove the second coded key from the ignition.
7. Within 20 seconds of turning the ignition to the 1 (LOCK) position and removing the previously programmed coded key, insert the new un-programmed key (new key/valet key) into the ignition.
8. Turn the ignition from the 1 (LOCK) position to the 3 (RUN) position. Keep the ignition in the 3(RUN) position for at least 6 seconds.
9. Remove the newly programmed coded key from the ignition.
If the key has been successfully programmed, it will start the vehicle’s engine and will operate the remote entry system (if the new key is an Integrated Keyhead Transmitter). The theft indicator light will illuminate for 3 seconds and then go out to indicate successful programming.
If the key was not successfully programmed, it will not start your vehicle’s engine and/or will not operate the remote entry features. The theft indicator light may flash on and off. Wait 20 seconds and you may repeat Steps 1 through 8. If the failure repeats, bring your vehicle to your authorized dealer to have the new key(s) programmed.
To program additional new un-programmed key(s), wait 20 seconds and then repeat this procedure from Step 1.
About Lincoln Mark MKS
When it was unveiled as a concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Lincoln MKS was still a concept. The Lincoln MKS Concept showcased the design language that will be used in Lincoln’s upcoming full-size flagship sedan, which will be called the MKS.
The waterfall grille from the 2007-2009 Lincoln MKZ was adapted for use on the MKS’s waterfall grille. For the first time, adaptive headlamps were used on a prototype car, pivoting the projectors as the driver turned the wheel. For turning indication, a series of LEDs were integrated into the headlamp assembly. The Lincoln star graced the wheel well side vents on the backside. The standard roof is replaced by a big sunroof/moonroof on the MKS Concept. Parking and braking lights and chrome trapezoidal exhaust tips were included in MKS Concept’s rear bumper. The 20×8.5-inch, ten-spoke wheels of the MKS Concept were a unique touch.
Seats and doors of the MKS Concept were upholstered in cream Aniline leather, with pearl-white suede used for the interior panels. The dashboard had a dark gray suede finish. Backlighting was provided by white LEDs for the instrumentation and controls, which had satin nickel inlays and chrome trim. The instrument panel was divided into two halves by a maple wood appliqué. A DVD navigation system, a 14-speaker stereo system, a passive entry system that recognizes the driver and allows the vehicle to be started by carrying its key fob, and a push-button ignition system were all included in the vehicle’s features. Dual front airbags, driver and passenger side airbags, and side curtain airbags all contributed to the car’s safety.
