Keyfob Help And Starting Car Help

14 April 2012 - 05:21 PM

Hi everyone,

I hope someone can help on a couple of issues i have.

I just brought a 2.0 zetec 2001 (y-reg) ford focus and the dealer handed me the keys to which i tried unlocking the door and nothing, the key wasnt working.

The guy opened up the keyfob and there was no battery in the key, he didnt have a spare battery to hand so he grabbed another ford mondeo key to show me how to program my focus once getting a battery and his mondeo key worked fine on my car when he programmed it infront of me (turning key on/off 4 times until a bleep)

Anyway to cut a long story short i brought a new battery, fitted it to my key and i try to programe it but the key still doesnt work on any of the 3 buttons.

Can i just buy another 2nd hand ford key (as ive seen loads on ebay) and program that, i think along the line someone has tried with the key i have as the casing inside (plastic) the key is broke..

Thats my 1st prob so i hope some one can enlighten me!

another problem is that when i start the car its abit grumpy as it starts, once you rev it it idles fine but its like its very grogey as it fires up,

i thought coilpack?????? but i didnt want to get a new one if it wasnt the case soi thought id ask someone on here??

Hope someone can help???
