Ok Guys, so it seems i asked the impossible, no one was able / willing to give advice on getting extra keys to work on my 2oo5 Ranger. So, off to the main Ford dealer who didn't want to know to start with but agreed to do the job in the end which involves buying two blank 'Chipped' keys at £40-00 each + vat, paying a locksmith £10-00 to cut the new keys then returning the vehicle and the newly cut keys to the dealer who battled with it for a week or so then decided to get on to Ford technical who then issued a code to the dealer who then put it into my trucks computer which then allowed the new keys to be programmed, Great, that alone cost me another £229-00! OUCH.
What else can you do, if the main dealer says that's what you have to do and everyone else who is willing to comment says take it to the dealer then the dealer has you over a very large barrel!
NEXT, To go with my 'new keys' which work a treat now, i would like to include a working remote fob (as the vehicle had one when new) the dealer (Bless him) wants something in the order of £190-00 for 'one remote key fob'. This is getting out of hand so i have just purchased one off of ebay and am now looking for the procedure to programme the fob to the trucks 'computer'. My handbook states that the dealer will tell me how but i have a sneaky suspicion that this will involve even more amounts of hard earned cash, so come on guys, any of you know the sequence?
Hoping someone out there can help, i would be extreeeeeemly grateful.
