right a bit of a fiddly job but rip off the steering column casing and remove the ingition barrel if possible ill check go to a good scrap yard get a new ignition barrel and ecu with the key change the ecu over and attatch the new barrel to it the chip under the red section of the key is unique to the ecu adn the engine will not start until the immobiliser chip matches with that ecu and if possible get the door barrels too then it doesnt look too suspicious if you sell the car on. that or go and talk to a ford garage and see what they can do ill talk to a few people i know down at my local garage and see if they can give you some more pointers
