Hi Mike
You would need to programme the new ford key if you were to go down the route of getting another key and to do that you would need 2 working ford keys already. If you only have one you would need a locksmith or ford to reprogramme the car with new keys so you could add more keys if that makes sense.Is the chip on the ford key a blue chip or red chip?if its a red chip and the key is also red then that being the master key you could use that to programme another.however i dont think ford do the red master keys anymore so you probably have a blue chip.no easy answer im afraid ford will charge you silly money to reprogramme might pay to check out some mobile locksmiths.there is one in plymouth that charges approx 70 with 3 new keys.hope this helps. Alan
