Hi Guys
Am I right in thinking Ford are supplying "flip keys" for the new Fiesta's and if so has anybody tried to replace their current fixed key for one.
I'm assuming that if you provide the key number Ford should be able to provide a replacement or additional key flip or not.
I take it that it will need to be coded.

Hi Tone

As simple as it sounds it is not.

The new Key would have to be cut as you have said.

It would also need coding to the imobilisor on your car/van

Key and codeing you are looking atleast at 100

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for that.

I gathered nothing would be that easy. I don't mind buying the key and flip etc but unless I find somebody who can code it cheap I'll have to make do with the one I've got ripping holes in my trouser pockets. If I ever have to buy a replacement then I might look into it as I would have to have one coded in any case.
Once gain Jamie thanks for that.

Anybody in Cornwall doing coding for the cost of a "pasty"

I have been after doing this for a while!

I bought a '10 plate fiesta (built in late 09) and have a normal "fixed" key
However two people i know with '59 and '10 plate Fiestas both have a flip key

Any idea on the difference?

And is it possible to just buy a blank flip key and get someone like Timpsons to cut it and an alarm/immobiliser specialist to code it?

Posted 30 January 2011 - 10:11 PM

I have ordered my Fiesta Zetec and am having to wait until mid April before it arrives :( . Anyway I have been reading through this forum as I assumed it would come with a flip key. I know it's only a key but it's my first BRAND new car and I want a nice key! At first I thought I was out of luck and only Zetec S upwards came with flip keys ... but then I found a brochure I had picked up from the Ford dealer and it states on the specifications page that "Remote central double locking w/two flip keys" is standard from the Edge upwards. Now I'm really confused ... have Ford decided to dish these flip keys out ... is it a misprint ... or do I have to order one?

In case anyone is interested I got my Zetec early (today!!), and it came with 2 flip keys ... so I think they are now standard across the range.
