Focus 3 Button Flip Key
Posted 21 February 2012 - 10:41 PM
My focus mk 2.5 when i got it it came with 2 keys one normal key with no central locking remote and another one with 3 buttons non flip key
i desperatly wanted a ford flip key but everybody that i ask told me its whery expencive just keep the normal nonflip key
so i spend a loooooong night at the pc on net and discovered a solution :
i bought my flip key from http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1439.l2649
then the key with no remote controls on it, open it, brake it in half, take transponder chip out
went to locksmith shop cut it by a laser swap the chips with mine
and then the fun begins
now i have a chip for my car, blade for my car but central locking no
i know that you have to go from position 0 to 2 in 6 sec four times but no one told me that you have to open the door of your car with the new key blade for the programing to work ahaha finily got it
this is a guick learning experience for me about keys and remote controls:D it was fun !!!

I think a flip key is somehow more refined and also downright cool too.

Don't know what it is about flipping a key out but i like it.
That's why i made sure i got one.
Saves making holes in my pockets too.

Literally about to go and spend €160 on getting a flip key with remote central locking.
I have one straight key with remote central locking.
Could I get a straight non remote key for €60 And then buy a blank flip key and get it cut and swap the transponder?
Does the transponder fit the flip key? Is it not a different shape?
How do you get the new flip key to do remote central locking?

If so get the key i linked and call a local auto locksmith.
They'll cut and code key to immobiliser and locks for far less than Ford.
I have used this guy for keys and he's spot on.
Key has a new unprogrammed transponder which will work just fine.
I use the spare key daily and leave the originals secure at home.

thats a brand new key so you need to program you transporder chip cut the blade at locksmith and program the central locking the way i told you:
open the car manualy with your new cut key put the key in ignition barel go from position 0 to 2 4 times you will hear a beep sound pres the buton on the remote for the first and also on your second remote. Thats it! to finish just take the key from the ignition barel

thanks jane-b, will this procedure also link the key to the immobiliser and alarm system, Mike.
No, you will need the key added to the ECU via the data port.
Garages or a mobile auto locksmith can do it.
Ford would scalp you for this service.
