IA backup keys

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX....

 

The owners manual refers to... (page 91)

 

“Your vehicle’s IA backup keys were issued with a security tag that provides important vehicle  key cut information. 

 

What IA backup keys are they referring to? They refer to the removable mechanical key blade in a different paragraph. The security tag has vehicle cut information. ... cut information for what keys?

 

I don’t get it. Anyone?

 

Thanks,

 

g.

The backup key is the physical key blade inside the fob.  It's a backup in case the IA electronic access stops working.

I guess the wording in the manual confused me ... the manual refers to a mechanical key and an IA backup key...obviously they are the same thing. Thanks for the reply.
