Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help here?

My mum has a 2007 ford fiesta zetec and unfortunately has lost one of the remote keys(3 button fob). She does have another 3 button remote as she got two when she bought the car new but when I contacted my local ford dealer I have been told that it will cost 80 plus vat for a replacement key and then 91.20 inc vat for getting the key programmed, taking 1 hour to do so.
I am hoping that someone can tell me that she does not need to pay this amount! I have been searching online for information but am getting rather confused.
Can anyone advise on if there are other options?

Have something to contribute?

IIRC I'm pretty sure a key can be reprogrammed easily enough.....

Someone on here should know how :)

I am searching on the internet and it looks like I need to have two working remotes to be able to programme another key? Maybe someone can confirm.

I'm in the same boat - I lost one of my keys. I take it then the only way to get another key is to get Ford to do it? :(

you can buy the keys/fob off ebay cheaper , then i guess if you looked around there are other place's that can code them cheaper than Ford charge

£170 sounds a hell of a lot of money for buying and programming one key.

Just an Example and they say they can program only one key if needed

I added a flip key to my car when I bought it.

Make sure the key is brand new and has never been coded before.
Don't go to ford as they will charge about £60 - £80 for a key and about £150 for cutting and coding.

What they don't tell you is that they don't cut and code them but call in a auto locksmith.
Why pay ford when you can cut them out of the loop and go to the locksmith directly.

If you buy one off eBay don't try to get it cut at timpsons or a high street key cutter as they'll refuse to do it.
The auto locksmith will cut and code them for you.

On the MK2 focus you have to add keys via the ODB no matter how many keys you have , on the MK1 you need 2 keys to add more, if you only have one key you definitely need to call a locksmith, the only thing you could do yourself with a spare key is cut it to fit the lock and open the door manually and programme it to remote the locks, coding it to operate the PATS2 immobiliser is only an option with 2 original keys guaranteed .

Blank uncoded keys and blades-

Sorry, don't know if your car takes a Tibbe or a Blade key
If you get one from here - http://myworld.ebay....sid=p4340.l2559 He's as good as gold and stands by his keys. I got mine from him.
Find a good auto locksmith and talk to them nicely and maybe they will give you a good price.

The locksmith i use also does callouts for Recovery companies and police etc.
He is also called out by ford to do their keys.
Ford DO NOT cut their own keys, they use auto locksmiths themselves and just charge you the standard fee plus their little bit on top.

No way! you can buy the cheaper from ebay !
the programing , you can do yourself!


Program the new remote 1st,

Turn ignition 0 - II 4 times within 6 seconds, Ignition off, tone sounds.

Press any button on remote 1 tone sounds, then press any button on remote 2 another tone sounds.

Ignition on and off exits program mode.



Now program the PATS immobiliser, As long as you have 2 unique and working keys that start the car.


Insert key 1 turn from 0 - II and back to 0

remove

Insert key 2 turn from 0 - II then back to 0

remove


Within 10 seconds insert the NEW key and turn to position II (wait a few seconds then remove)

Wait at least 5 seconds and you now have 3 working keys.

Lez, thanks for that info. I am getting confused though!

The instructions regarding programming the PATS immobiliser 'As long as you have 2 unique and working keys that start the car.'

In your next post 'one key is enough for add more keys, max 4'

Can you clarify if I am able to programme a key myself so that it will open, lock the car plus start the engine when all I have at the moment is one of the 3 button remote keys handed over with the car. The other, now lost key, was also a 3 button remote key.

Another wee question!

Do I get the two bits - Fins Code 1x 1233203 Remote

-1 x 1543945 Blank Key
and then go to the autolocksmith to cut the key?

The listing I picked up from your post above but this is for a fiesta 2008 onwards, can anyone advise on what the part numbers I would need are for a 2007 fiesta?

Hi everyone, I am also getting confused with this, I only had one 3 button key with my car, I have looked at buying from ebay but end up getting more confused (age thing). When I went into my local Timsons they said they would supply a programed key for 110 which confused me even more as the shop is in a shopping centre a long way from the car park!
I would also like to know if :- by buying a new key from ebay or Timsons would allow me to program the new key to open, close and start my car with only 1 other key in my possesion, and now the bit that may make me seem really dumb but when programing the key as described which key is used in the ignition? My car is a 08 Fiesta.
Cheers
Steve
