In Topic: 08 Transit Flat Bed Won't Start

Sounds like an arial problem but to rule out a bad key, take your key to a good local auto locksmith and have them check the chip is working .

Takes a couple of seconds .We don't charge for this.


When you turn the ign on, the PATS light will be flashing rapidly.

leave the ign on for 1 min then read the code the light is showing you.

The light may blink once, then a gap, then 3 times.this is code 13 ( it could flash 1 and 5, or 2 and 4, or something else).

Let me know what the code is and I can give you an idea what the problem is.

Because they can scrumpy.

If people will pay, Ford will charge.


To programme a key into the new fords (most with the Aston martin grill), it take the dealer up to 4 hours to extract the out code and up to another 4 hours to put in the in code.

I wonder how they're charging for this

Flashing code 11 is "Arial not connected".

Maybe a fuse but usually arial around the ignition barrel has a problem.

You can swap these between same models.

I'm a bit lost. Are you saying you can set up an Autolocksmith business for less.

I have over 30k in machines/computors and stock in my van, plus the cost of the van, plus the cost of running the business etc etc

Then there's the cost of running the shop.

We could argue over this for ever but, unless your in it, you wont see what it cost's to run it.


I don't have a clue what your 2 business's are , and i'm sure they are very successful but my point was and is, paying £143 for a ford remote is a little steep but  isn't really over the top.

In Topic: Stolen Keys

Both mike.

Cheapest option is to recode keys and remote. Basically when new keys are programmed in. The old are deleted.

When remotes are programmed in, All none present remotes are cancelled out.

If you don't want to change the locks, the old/stolen keys will still open the doors manually (not with the buttons) but they wont start the car.

As said, if you need someone local to you, let me know , I'm an autolocksmith and I'm in contact with lockies al over the country.

We pass work onto one another,
