  1. Is 1-6 what your seeing from the PATS light or did you get that from somewhere else ?
  2. A good auto locksmith will be cheaper. If you cant find someone local to you, let me know and I'll point you in the right direction.
  3. That's a bit of confusing Dave. No such thing as a master key on these fords. Doesn't matter who or what you point the key at, its a radio signal that's sent buy the remote.
  4. Just to clarify. If the battery in the key was bad , the car wont start. If the battery was missing, the car wont start. The car needs to see a proximity signal from the key (this isn't the same as the remote signal). Therefore, the battery is good. The remote on these are programmed into the vehicle at the same time as the key (chip) is programmed. My advice is get the remote tested to see if its sending a signal. 10sec job and we don't charge for this. If it's sending a remote signal, get the remote programmed back in. If the remote isn't sending a signal, get a new key.
  5. If you were local to me , we charge about £180 to come out and supply and programme a remote key for this ford . It's an old post but give me a call if your not sorted. I can put you onto a trustworthy autolocksmith in your area.
  6. If your near Hadleigh /Benfleet, pop it into our shop and I'll have a quick look at it for you.
  7. Call a good auto locksmith
  8. Sounds like immobiliser related. Leave ignition on for 1 minute and tell me what the pats light is doing. Leaving ign on for 1 min sometimes clears a problem. ie, you may have tried to start the car with an unprogrammed key.
  9. Can I ask, is your insurance company happy that the immo chip now has permanent residence inside the car ?
  10. Always worth a try mate
  11. Yes
  12. New blade is cheaper than dis-assembling and re-assembling the unit.
  13. It's the pats indicator light. If theres a problem, it will flash a code ie 1 slow flash- gap- 3 quick flashes is code 13. so on and so on. If light flashes slow and regular, there's no problem. This is normal condition on fords.
  14. Worst case is your key is worn and that has damaged your lock. New grill New lock assembly New key. Best case is worn key. New blade Good luck
