Nope.
Mk1/1.5 Focus you can, but anything after that they changed the protocols.

So I can use the key but would need an auto locksmith to cut it and programme it for the immobiliser?

Very true, when I took mine for it's M.O.T today they got the spare and I kept the flip key in my pocket.

Rest of the time my original two keys live in my keysafe.

You used to be able, now can't any more. From the MK2 onwards.

It's a shame as it was quite a handy thing to be able to do. I know it's not everyday you need a new key, but being safe in the knowledge that its not going to cost more than about £30 to replace one if you should lose one/ require another key.

When I first got on the road in my mums Mondeo, I programmed three of them as it was like the family steed, me, my sister, mum and dad each had a key plus a spare.
