key

I wanted to know if a 2002 ranger would need those special keys that need to be programed. The truck is an edge but has basic everything (no power locks, windows)

Key Well they usually run ~$25 on ebay. If you only have one key right now it'll be more expensive and you'll have to visit a dealer. It can get pricey.

On-Board Programming Method "C"
for Ford keys (Later 1998-newer Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)

If you want to initiate a new master key....
1. This requires that the vehicle be connected to special dealer equipment. There are two ten minute delays involved while this device erases all existing key programming and sets up the vehicle computer to accept new key codes. Two new keys should be ready because the system requires a minimum of two keys in the program. After the first two keys are programmed, additional keys can be entered individually by following the instructions for adding duplicate keys (below).

If you want to add a key....
**You must have two original keys to perform this procedure. If you only have one key, you WILL have to take it to the dealer to get it programmed**

As per 2002 Ford Ranger Manual

Programming spare keys
A maximum of eight keys can be coded to your vehicle. Only
SecuriLock keys can be used. To program a coded key yourself, you
will need two previously programmed coded keys (keys that already
operate your vehicle’s engine) and the new unprogrammed key(s) readily
accessible for timely implementation of each step in the procedure.
If two previously programmed coded keys are not available, you must
bring your vehicle to your dealership to have the spare coded key(s)
programmed.
Please read and understand the entire procedure before you begin.

1. Insert the first previously
programmed coded key into the
ignition and turn the ignition from 3
(OFF) to 4 (ON) (maintain ignition
in 4 (ON) for at least one second).

2. Turn ignition to 3 (OFF) then 2
(LOCK) and remove the first coded
key from the ignition.

3. Within ten seconds of removing
the first coded key, insert the
second previously programmed coded key into the ignition and turn the
ignition from 3 (OFF) to 4 (ON) (maintain ignition in 4 (ON) for at least
one second but no more than ten seconds).

4. Turn the ignition to 3 (OFF) then 2 (LOCK) and remove the second
coded key from the ignition.

5. Within 20 seconds of removing the second coded key, insert the new
unprogrammed key (new key/valet key) into the ignition and turn the
ignition from 3 (OFF) to 4 (ON) (maintain ignition in 4 (ON) for at least
one second). This step will program your new key to a coded key.

6. To program additional new unprogrammed key(s), repeat this
procedure from step 1.

If successful, the new coded key(s) will start the vehicle’s engine and the
theft indicator will illuminate for three seconds and then go out.

If not successful, the new coded key(s) will not start the vehicle’s engine
and the theft indicator will flash on and off and you may repeat steps 1
through 6. If failure repeats, bring your vehicle to your dealership to
have the new spare key(s) programmed.
