Advice please! I have an 04 Galaxy 1.9tDi which has two keys, one of which does not work. The fob came apart and, unknown to me, the transponder chip fell out and was lost. The key appears to be complete apart from that - it unlocks the car and starts the engine but the engine cuts out after a couple of seconds, presumably because the immobiliser kicks in. I have had the car assessed at a local Ford dealer - they told me it was the fob which was the problem and the car was booked in to have the fob replaced and reprogrammed. When the car went to the garage for the work to be done I was then told that I need a blade because there is no transponder chip - the blade has to be laser cut which cannot be done locally and they cannot tell me if I will need both the blade and fob or just the blade until they have both working parts. I have been told that I cannot get the transponder chip separately from the blade but I have seen these for sale on e-bay. Has anyone else had this problem - if so what is the solution? As the key unlocks the car and starts it, I don't see that there can be anything wrong with the actual blade but I am wary about purchasing a transponder chip from e-bay and not sure if the Ford garage will programme it then. Thanks for any information.
