Lincoln Zephyr 2006 Key Programming Procedure
The following are the key programming procedures for the year Lincoln ZEPHYR 2006.
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 ZEPHYR
The Zephyr was developed by John Tjaarda (1897–1962), an airplane enthusiast, and features a unibody structure that is relatively light and sturdy for its size, as well as a drag coefficient of 0.45. 3350 lb in weight (1,520 kg).
The Zephyr was powered by a 75° V12 engine created from Ford’s Flathead V8 engine that was unconnected to the larger K-series Lincoln V12 engines. The flathead engine with its valve-in-block design was quite small, allowing for a low hood. However, similar to the V8 Fords of the era, the Zephyr V12 frequently developed hot spots as a result of exhaust tunnels running through the cylinder block. Additionally, the initial Zephyrs had low oil pressure, necessitating oil pump improvements.
The 1936–1939 variants had a capacity of 267 in3 (4.4 L), with hydraulic lifters being introduced in 1938. The 1940 and 1941 models used a larger 292-in3 (4.8-L) engine, while the 1942 and early 1946 models featured a 306-in3 (5.0-L) engine with a reduced compression ratio due to the iron heads. Lincolns based on the Zephyr from late 1946 to 1948 were equipped with a 292-in3 engine.
The original engine produced 110 horsepower (82 kW) and the car reached a top speed of 90 miles per hour (145 kilometers per hour). Suspension was transverse springs front and back, with a dead axle front and a torque tube rear, which was already rather old at the time the car was debuted. Cable-activated brakes were used from 1936 to 1938; hydraulic brakes were used from 1939 forward. Apart from the late 1931 Model AA truck, the Zephyr was the first Ford model with an all-steel roof.
