Hi, I accidentally put my 1995 taurus key into my mustang 06, but I didn't turn it over because I realized it was the wrong one so took it out before.. Then I put in the mustang key and it worked just fine. I know you're thinking isn't that a good thing? But Im concerned it didn't do any damage. Like is there future ramifications of this?

Any Ford key will go all the way into your Mustang, but if the cut is different and there is an additional computer chip on it, then it just won't turn over. I don't think that something will eventually happen like the ignition being put on hold for a dealership approval, but obviously if the car turned over right away then you're alright.

It's also like trying to open a locked car door. The alarm definitely shouldn't go off after the first try since you, the owner, could be the one trying to get in, and you simply forgot to unlock it first. Engineers wouldn't do something to mess up your car if you make a mistake one time with the wrong key.

It should be fine because you didn't start it other wise it would have
shut down and you would have had to tow to Ford to reprogram it.your
ok and nothing is going to happen now

A '95 Taurus key won't turn in an '06 Mustang under normal circumstances. A '95 uses the old 10 cut system, '06 uses the newer 8 cut system.
