When did the newer key come out

Recommended Posts

Im about to buy a March 2019 Titanium.  In my local area in the past week, 3 Titaniums have gone missing without the keys.  I read Ford released a key with a mercury switch built in that goes to sleep, when did this come out and how can I tell if my car has it.   I havnt picked it up from the dealer yet, its a Ford Direct car, if need be il make it a condition of the sale that it is sorted.  Any advice please.

It was noted as changed in the May 2019 downgrades that Ford did to the Focus range. It may have been changed before this, but I have not seen anything anywhere to say this.

You can disable Keyless entry in the Vehicle Settings, that's what I have done with mine even though I have the new Key Fob.
