[b][i][size="4"]I’ve Purchased a spare Flip Key from E-Bay for my focus, followed the instruction in the cars manual and got it programmed to lock and unlock the car no problem,

now when I went to my local lock smith to get the fobs blade cut he says it’s a specialist job to cut that and he can’t do it :o ...

Anyone else got this problem or what can i do now, please help :unsure: [/size][/i].[/b]

I presume he means its a specialist job to programme the key as the cutting can be done by anyone. Ford dealers charge approx 180-200 fot this although I purchased a flip key had it cut and programmed for 75 at a auto locksmith.

i got a new key (although not remote capable) programmed to start the car (cloned of my current key) and cut for 75. this was at timpsons. they may possibly do this for you, either way i know its laser cut not conventional cutting.

My guess is you didnt go to a locksmith, you went to a key cutter,cobbler,dry cleaners or a boot sale.
If you did go to a locksmith, theres a chance he dosnt want to cut your key. Its a bit like taking you own sandwiches into a cafe.

Thanks for the posts guys, i know better now what im talking about when i ask around about getting it cut it needs to be lazer cut, i thought the difficult part would be getting one cheap on e-bay i was wrong, ill ask around at key cutters bit backward over here though, may ring the ford garage for a laugh, although the sales man is peed off with me because i bought my accessories from ford in the uk through e-bay for half the price rather than buying them off him. :lol: oohh hate that lol
