A Newbie With A Question

Hi,

I've just signed onto this site as I'm now a proud owner of a bright red Ford Focus Zetec. I don't have a central locking fob. I rang the garage and he said this car didn't have one. Couldn't decide if he meant the fob or the central locking! Can anyone let me know whether it should have central locking plus fob please.

Thanks

Many thanks for your replies and picture is posted! Now I know it should have central locking and a fob I need to have the former checked. If it's not working is that expensive? Also where would I purchase a fob for this particular car?

Thanks

Cheapest way to have it done, get another 3 button fob, swap the chip to the new fob and have the key cut.

If you want a spare fob, buy a transit 3 button one (with blue boot button). You dont have a spare key but always can get into the car and its 1/4 of the price.

Coding the fob you can do yourself, but coding new chips you cant.

Many thanks Ben. Understood most of that but if I buy a new fob where do I get the chip from? I assume that must be in the central locking somewhere in the car?

I'll go hunting.

If you dont have a fob, I preseume you have this key:

In the end of the key theres a blue or red plastic piece that can be eased out. Theres an oblong chip in there.

If you then buy:

Which is the normal remote locking fob and key, you can put the chip into this fob, have the key blade cut and itll work with your car.(you have to programme the fob to the central locking with the ignition sequence - see google).

After that, if you want another fob, its one of these for the cheapest option:
