I've collected our new Ford Focus CL TDDi estate from my dad and it's running beautifully. Very happy with it so far apart from one issue.
There is only 1 key that starts the car. Unfortunately that same key does not open the drivers door, but it does open the passenger door. What has happened is the lock has worn out on the drivers door and has been replaced with the new key. The original key works fine in the passenger door and starts the car.
Now my questions are
1) Surely all modern cars have a keyfob with buttons to open the doors? My dads focus does not and he's always needed the keys. Likewise to open the boot he has to press the button inside the car.
2) How expensive is it likely to be to get all the locks changed with a new set of keys so that I don't need different keys for different functions. I know the cars imobiliser expects a certain key. Is this a ford dealership only job?
Wow I was just gonna ask this question, I also have a Ford Focus CL TDDi estate 51 reg 2002, I was told it was a Mk 2 and have been very confused as some websites say mk 1 2 and 3 others say that its Mk 1 Mk1 facelift which mine fits into as its got the rubber bit in the bumper and that MK 2 didnt happen till 2004
I too have a worn drivers lock, have 2 keys that work, would have liked a remote if they are available.
So if there wasn't one on my model can i just get hold of a lock and replace it or do i have to replace all the locks (front drivers, front passenger, rear luggage door and ignition) and if so does the central locking unit have to be changed?
Just tried the key switch 4 times from position 1 to 2 in 4 seconds and no chime so guess mine hasn't the module in as per link.
SO has anyone done the upgrade as per the link in the previous email and bought a secondhand key and reprogrammed it - if so guess thats what i should try - will await replies before doing anything - thanks guys
