been reading old reviews on programing a keyfob .as i only got 1 key when i got
the car it was the one with a bit of blue on the corner so not sure if i will need
a auto locksmith
I bought one off eBay myself mate, you can programme it to lock and unlock the doors and boot, yourself the instructions are in the Ford owners handbook, you turn on and off the ignition a couple of times then when it beeps press lock on each of the fobs you want to use with the car, then turn the ignition off again, you will hear another beep, and your done all fobs work on the car, its along those lines of method,
if you donít have this let me know and ill copy word for word from the handbook to explain how to do it,
the next part is getting the key cut,
this needs to be done by Laser Iíve yet to get mine cut to shape guessing around £30 figure, it needs to be done by a certain type of locksmith.
The third part is this,
I think there may be another chip in the top of the key that works with the immobiliser in the carís ignition, Iím not sure about this but I too would also like clarification on this part.
also when you purchase a spare un-cut key from e-bay or anywhere make sure not to insert the un-cut key in to your carís ignition as it wonít come out again unless its cut to suit the car,
resulting in your car needing to be towed to the garage, very unpleasant experience, happened a member of the site, I remember reading
All considered I still reckon you can save at least £50 getting the key done yourself compared to getting it from ford dealers.
