Hi Katemck!

First of all: how nice of your husband to surprise you with a Focus!

You can download your car's Owner's Manual here: Check out page 153 for a break down of MyKey, including instructions on how to remove programmed features from your MyKey. If you've lost your admin key, however, I'd suggest you get in touch with your dealer to purchase a replacement.

The my key can keep track of each key use separately.
Turning it off does nothing except then both keys are not tracked separately...
Thanks for the good info, suss6052 and Elizabeth! Have a great weekend everyone!

Don't forget you can also turn off the belt minder (annoying chime) too!
