Mykey to limit the speed my teenager can drive

MyKey allows you to program any key to a restricted driving mode setting that promotes good habits, such as increasing seat-belt use, limiting vehicle top speeds and decreasing audio volume.3

  1. Create a MyKey:

    • Insert key into ignition (or backup slot if your vehicle is equipped with push-button start).
    • Switch ignition on.
    • Select Settings > MyKey > Create MyKey
    • Press and hold OK button until a message appears prompting you to designate your key as a MyKey.
  2. Configure global MyKey settings:

    • Switch ignition on, using “admin key” or fob. (The key you choose not to program will serve as your master or “admin key.”)
    • Select Settings > MyKey.
    • Select MyKey feature you wish to program, and press OK.
    • From this point on, starting your vehicle with a MyKey will activate the restricted driving mode you’ve programmed.
  3. Configurable settings:

    • Speed-limit restriction and minders:

      Restrict the top speed not to exceed 80 mph.

      Set vehicle-speed minders that trigger visible and audible warnings at a preselected speed of 45, 55 or 65 mph.
    • “Always On” settings for:

      Traction Control

      911 Assist27,28

      Do Not Disturb
    • Maximum audio volume of 45 percent.
