Recently purchased a 1.4 Fiesta Flame MK6 and the key fob with the three buttons doesn't remotely lock/unlock the doors or boot, but can still manually lock/unlock the doors and start the car with the key.
I've changed the battery, but it still doesn't work.
Looking through past invoices, it seems the previous owner took it to a Ford dealer for the above reason.
Work carried out - 'Program Remote Key. Checked battery fitted ok. Tried to reprogram key but would not work. Internal fault in Transmitter'
Do I need a completely new fob?
I've looked on ebay and you can buy new key fobs for about £25, but would obviously need to be programmed etc.
I could also separate the key end from the fubar remote control so I wouldn't need a new key cut.
I've also been reading the owners manual about how new keys can be programmed in the ignition.
Is this a good idea, could I do this myself? Rather not have to pay £150 odd at a dealer.
