Hi Mike

You would need to programme the new ford key if you were to go down the route of getting another key and to do that you would need 2 working ford keys already. If you only have one you would need a locksmith or ford to reprogramme the car with new keys so you could add more keys if that makes sense.Is the chip on the ford key a blue chip or red chip?if its a red chip and the key is also red then that being the master key you could use that to programme another.however i dont think ford do the red master keys anymore so you probably have a blue chip.no easy answer im afraid ford will charge you silly money to reprogramme might pay to check out some mobile locksmiths.there is one in plymouth that charges approx £70 with 3 new keys.hope this helps. Alan
