Cutting Keys

4 posts in this topic

When I bought my car I had two keys, but while moving home lost the spare so now I only have one.

I phoned Ford and asked how much it would be to get it cut and they wanted a staggering £136 ("approximately" she said) which to me sounds insane for just the key (without the central locking fob)

So, any other options?

You can buy blanks from eBay and take them to a key cutting shop, I believe most Timpsons do none remote keys but can also do some remote locking keys too

Type "ford blank keys" in to ebay search should find a few

Only having 1 original key you will not be able to program a new key to start the car. Your estimate 'probably' includes programming by the dealership.

I invested £20 a while back to get a 3rd jic I loose 1, the ebay seller even cut it for free if you supplied the key number.

Using the 2 original keys it took about a minute to program the 3rd.

Cloning your existing key is another option.

Aye, it's the transponder in the key which allows it to turn the security off is why it's expensive, its not like a house key
