I have a 2004 Ford Fusion 3, and recently, have noticed that my remote lock buttons don't always work. I've changed the batteries in the key, but was advised that due to the age of the car, the key was probably failing, and should be replaced.
Obviously, the cost was in the hundreds - so I'm looking at alternative ways of getting it done. Your help would be appreciated!
I have both original Ford keys, and they both still work - so I think I'm able to do the programming for remote locking and the transponder myself.
- I have found a key on eBay for £35 (http://www.ebay.co.u....item1e6d002901) - I think all I need for this is to get the actual key cut. Would I be able to do this in Timpson's, and how much would they charge for it?
- This key is pre-cut and around £75 (http://www.ebay.co.u....item20d1eb01e9).
Out of the two, which key would be more sensible to get?
Is it as simple as: buying a key, getting it cut, programming the transponder, programming the remote lock? Or am I missing something? Can I find instructions on all the programming in my manual, or is there anything it's missing out?
Basically- help! Help! Help! And thanks
