Mercury Mariner 2007-2010 Key Programming Procedure
The following are the key programming procedures for Mercury Mariner for the year 2007, 2009, 2008 and 2010.
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 Mercury Mariner
The Mariner received HD Radio as a standard feature for the 2011 model year, but otherwise retained the same amenities as the previous model year. This particular Mariner was the model’s final iteration, since Ford abandoned the Mercury brand as a result of dwindling sales. The Mariner was manufactured by Ford until it was phased out in October 2010.
Those were the last ones to roll off the production line, which happened on October 5, 2010.
The powertrain of the Mariner Hybrid was identical to that of its sibling, the Ford Escape Hybrid. It was introduced to the United States market in 2006 and was phased out along with the rest of the brand in 2010. A total of 12,300 units of the Mariner hybrid were sold.
The Mariner Hybrid, like the Ford Escape Hybrid, is equipped with a “full” hybrid electric system, which means that the system can switch automatically between pure electric power, pure gasoline engine power, or a combination of electric battery and gasoline engine operating together, resulting in the best possible performance and efficiency at all driving speeds and loads. When braking or decelerating, the Mariner’s hybrid powertrain employs regenerative braking, in which the electric drive motor converts into a generator, transforming the vehicle’s momentum back into electricity for storage in the batteries, as shown in the video below. Because of its hybrid powertrain, the Mariner Hybrid has roughly the same acceleration performance as the standard V6 Mariner, which produces 200 horsepower (150 kW). It earns a decent average of 34 miles per gallon in the United States (6.9 L/100 km; 41 mpgimp) exactly as the Escape Hybrid and is sometimes referred to as the most fuel-efficient sport utility vehicle on the road.
