Starting a mondeo with a dead keyfob


Recommended Posts

Quick query I saw a tutorial for starting a Mustang with a dead keyfob the other week and it showed them putting the key into a recess in the cup holder and wondered where the location was to drop the key in the car for a mondeo for it to pick up and start?

I've had a key die on me before in a previous car and nearly got stuck so this would be handy

Look in the armrest and in the large compartment at the front left corner there should be a small pocket for the key. 

Found it, cheers for that hopefully I never need it but you never know.

The battery in the fob is primarily for the central locking, the immobiliser chip can be read passively if it's close enough to the pickup antenna under the cup holder.
