Hi,

I bought a used Ford Flip Key off ebay from the UK, I own a focus lx 2006 in Australia which I believe is the european model. I have two original key's/keyfob from when I bought the car. I now want a flip key to work. I have had the Flip key cut already and the buttons programmed to open/lock the doors. But the engine wont start with the flip key. Can I program this in? or is the flip key not compatible?

Thanks

Hi, Although I have never tried the following procedure, I found this info on the web and it may be worth a try.

insert the first programmed key into the ignition and turn to position ll
turn back to 0 and remove the key

repeat above with the second programmed key

key programming mode is now activated and you have 10 seconds to;

insert the new unprogrammed key into ignition, turn to position ll
turn back to O, then remove the key

allow 10 seconds for the system to exit programming.

hope this works for you, John

Hi,

thanks for the reply.

I had tried that without luck. When I insert the unprogrammed key after inserting the two working keys, the security light will blink rapidly like it doesnt accept it. Is this not compatible?

Hi again, sorry it didn`t work, maybe a friendly word with your local ford dealer will help, or continue to search the forums. Is there any reason you need 3 keys by the way? John

Hi,

The flip key looks cool thats why. :) Ford dealers wont sell me it here thats why I looked on ebay. Ford reckons the flip key will only work on the 2007 models onwards.
