I would recommend calling a few auto locksmiths for advice.

One I call on regularly reckons that pre used keys can have problems with the transponder chip.

I would assume it's a laser key (flat blade) and probably a flip key?

The key will need cutting, programming to the central locking and the transponder programming to the immobiliser via the data port (OBD).

Ford charge over £120 plus usually push their luck by saying they won't do self acquired keys and also insisting on a diagnostic too.

This will all push up the price of something that takes 20 minutes to do. (Ford will probably quote about two hours labour).

I strongly recommend auto locksmiths, and for God's sake avoid Timpsons as they are officially crap and will not guarantee keys you bring in to them and often will refuse to cut them quoting company policy.
