focus 2010 push button start problem

Recommended Posts

Picked up a new car yesterday, 2010 focus ZS TDCI. I only got 1 KEY with the car! Buttons do not work on the fob so I have to use the blade in the locks. When I get in a warning flashes saying key outside car, when I hold the key to the ignition it starts ok but the warning stays on it sometimes goes off but it's there most of the time. So I put in a new battery and tried to program the fob pressing the S/S button 8 times (4on4off) but the system chimes like mad due to the 'key outside car' message. So I gave the local dealer a quick call to pick their brains will cost me at least £107 just to find the problem 🤢🤑 and upto £300 on top of that for another key so I have 2. So I'm wondering if anyone could help with the central locking issue or the 'key outside car' message as I will have to spend £300 on another key either way but dont fancy paying £107 for them to say its knackered you need a new one. Thanks in advance.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.
