OK, here's what I have. I have an old '99 Fiesta Ghia that's due to go off to the scrappers. It's a non runner, so no use to anyone.

 

Anyway, I still have the remote key fob which works fine.

 

I just bought a 2001 Mk5 Fiesta Freestyle. However, it just has the two in-slot keys.

 

So, before the old car gets picked up, is there anyway I can reprogram the remote key fob to work with the 2001 fiesta? The keys all have a red tab at the top, so I'm wondering if I can just take the transponder out of one, would that work?

 

Cheers

Ideally both, but just top open would be fine.

 

As far as I can see, I can get the blade cut from ebay for not too much cash. So that could be the easy part?

I'll run out and look if there's a keyhole in the passenger. I think there may well be.

 

The older fiesta is definitely after 01/99. It's a 3 button transponder.

 

Where abouts is the GEM in the old fiesta? Is it a plug and play type thing, or will I need to start splicing and dicing?

Ah cool, doesn't look to complicated.

 

So if I simply just swap the GEMs over, the remote key fob will work (for locking/unlocking)? No other mods needed?

 

Then after that, sort out the key blade and done?

 

Thanks so much for taking the time by the way!
