  1. Hi All, My battery in my 2007 Focus Mk2 has been dying for the last few months and now requires a jump start from my battery pack pretty much all the time which is ***** frustrating. I have purchased a new battery for the car and I have gotten one of these Memory saver's and I have no idea if it will work in my car. I only got one remote key when I got the car second hand and I know it can get expensive going to the dealer if I wipe the memory and don't have 2 keys to reprogram it back myself. Has anyone tried these with success, I know I need to bite the bullet with getting a second key anyway, so maybe I just get one before changing the battery to be safe?? Any thoughts, comments or anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Just got her ladyship a 2lt 2008 Zetec. It came with 2 keys. however 1 would not unlock it remotely. so I changed the battery and still not working....... I watched a few videos on Youtube on key programing........ I went and sat in the car with both keys (opened it with the one that works) did the 4 turns of the key until it beeped then pressed a button on the key. after that the key that didn't work before now worked, the one that did work now doesn't....... Where did I go wrong.....

    key fob and boot

    Hi I have a ford cmax 55plate my key fob does not work, i have tried to program it by turing key from i to ii 4 time i get the first beep but when i press button on fob to pair i get no responce at all, I have tried to use the fob on another and it programs fine so i know for sure there is no issue with the fob itself, just wont program on my cmax, also my boot does not open at all when i unlock doors with the key an try to press boot button between the number plate lights nothing happens any ideas with both these issues thanks
  4. Hi guys. I have focus zetec 1.6 2005y. Few days ago I note that my tailgate isnt open. It was open as normal when i open the car by keys or key button for central lock. Now it is not open when i do that, the only way I can open tailgate is 3rd button that open only tailgate. Btw there is something wron gith key as well, sometimes i need tu press twice or more to unlock central lock but with key it works fine. I have change battery in keys and it does not help, so probably it is technikal problem with tailgate lock or mechanism. I only wonder that if i lose key then i cannot open tailgate. I though there is a key hole like it is on the front that you need to uncover the ford sign on the side and turn key left and right but i cant move this sign at all.

  6. Hi folks! I bought a universal keyless kit to my Fiesta MK6 (1.3 petrol from 2004). I installed almost everything except the tailgate opener. Do you have any idea which wire goes to tailgate from GEM module? Or how to test it with a LED bulb?

    Key snapped in ignition

    Hi my key broke inn the ignition it has just snapped I was wondering if I change the barrel with a new key would I need to program it in or something for the immobilizer.
  8. Hi everybody I wrote a post where I describe my problem here: but I will repeat the main gist to keep it clear and concise: I bought a second-hand Ford Ka Zetec from 2013 and was given just the master key. I want to get a spare key with a fob (flip key, lock/unlock buttons). My car's documents came with a little card showing both an electronic and a mechanical keycode and I think these are important for making/programming spare keys. When do these come in handy and who uses them? Can I show this card to a locksmith? Can I avoid having to deal with Ford (worries of hefty costs) to get this fob that I want? Thank for reading!
  9. Hi all I unwisely sent one of the remote key fobs (three buttons, key inside but not fold out) for my 2016 Fiesta Titanium for a spin in a washer and completely broke it. Ford quoted me £200+ for a new one so I went to Timpsons who told me they could not 'get through the car's security' and were unable to help. They did, however, give me the key they'd ordered as a goodwill gesture. I'm now left with one working fob and one unprogrammed one. Does anyone have any recommendations for programmers who are not hugely expensive or a Plan B I could use. My car has keyless entry and a start stop button so I can't insert the key anywhere inside. Any help gratefully received please!
  10. Hi, can anybody help me please. I have had two instances when I have gone to my car and found somebody has been in it. It appears they open it and go through everything but on both occasions nothing was taken. According to the police there is a device that sends out hundreds of codes and when held near the door handle unlocks it..... My car is a 62 plate focus ecoboost 1.0 litre, is there any way I can disable the remote (keyfob) locking so I have to insert the key to unlock / lock it? Any help much appreciated.
  11. Morning all I own a ford focus CL 2003 and along with many others my bonnet lock has failed. I have ordered the lock repair kit from ford but I can find a decent tutorial on how to code the barrel to my key and fit the new barrel and rod. The catch is working fine - the barrel and rod is missing. Can anyone help !! Thanks Liam
  12. Hi, so basically I have a 07 Fiesta, this particular model has a fixed key with buttons and the actual key sticking out, I was wondering if it's possible to purchase a flip key and program it to work that way? If possible could anyone recommend a certain model of key and instructions?

    Replace locks on Mk7 Fiesta

    Hi all, We recently purchased a MK7 fiesta as a second car for the missus, that unfortunately came with just one key from a private seller. I'm aware that's quite common, but being a bit obsessed about security, i'm thinking of replacing the locks. I can probably source the parts from a breaker and fit them myself in hope the overall cost would be slightly higher than buying a second key (with fob) and getting it cut. I'm just wondering if i really need to source the ECU or could do without it. I've seen some sellers giving you the speedo and ECU together with the lock barrels, but my (limited) experience tells me that shouldn't be required, unless it's something to do with the immobilizer. I was thinking i need the following: Ignition barrel Driver's door barrel (without the mechanism) Delete any existing fobs and reprogram the new ones (Is this possible using ELM?) Are those correct? Did i forget anything? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  14. I have a 2007 s-max titanium and the key will not unlock the car via the buttons. I have installed a new battery and tried reprograming the key , but to no avail. So i did a code read and im getting Error Code U201F - External Receiver ive looked at the reciever and the wiring looks fine as do the internals. are these common to fail or am i looking at something else? Kind regards hybrid
  15. Hi all i am trying to get another keyfob programmed for my 2014 ST however when the guy plugs in his device into the OBD port he does not get any power. I have been told to check all fuses and after sending it to a car electrics specialist he says all fuses are fine and present and that there is another deeper problem. Has anyone experienced this before?

    Fiesta MK7 key change

    I've recently bought two new keys for my fiesta (not official ford keys) as i prefer flip up keys to the standard ford key. One of the keys i've bought has no internals and is designed so that the internals of my original key fits straight into it so the key only needs to be cut. If i had the key cut and switched the internals with my origional key, would i need to have it coded in any way or would there be no issues with the immobiliser? The second key i bought has internals but needs to be cut and coded to work with my car, would i be able to do the coding myself or would that require me having both original keys for my car? (I only have one) also what would you expect the cost of having a key cut ans coded be? Would it be cheaper or possible to do using a diagnostics tool? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Remote not working

    The remote on my 2010 fiesta is not working. I have replaced the battery but it is still not working. Any one know why and if I can fix it myself?
  18. I lost my last set of car keys a few days, and as I didn't want to pay the rather extortionate amount of money that an official dealership wanted to charge to replace all the locks and immobiliser system, I went to an unofficial locksmith, who cut me a correct key but was unable to program the transponder in the key correctly. A day later I actually found my original key, however when I attempted to start the car with it it came up with the immobliser malfunction message. I've seen some places recommend unplugging the battery for 10/15 minutes to reset the electronics system, however don't know if this will work and also don't know if this will stop my original key from working, just looking for any advice/technical info on what might happen if i disconnected the battery or if I did anything else with the car.
  19. Hi posted a couple of weeks ago about a really strange and frustrating problem with my 2009 ford fiesta 1.6 diesel tdci. I have since taken to ford and auto electrician with no luck of solving the issue and am in desperate need of help to get an answer to why my fiesta starts intermittently. Any help would be much appreciated. I have narrowed down the issue to that of the immobiliser flashing rapidly causes the car not to start, the car does this intermittently and always starts first time when i go out to it in the morning or the first drive of the day after that it will play up and start intermittently maybe after 8 attempts of turning the key back and forth. I was told by for that it was the ECU and will cost 1600 quid to repair but find that hard to believe and them trying to rob me of my money. I feel the answer to my problem is simple and has to be to do with this immobiliser flashing rapidly and causing the car not to start. Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance
  20. So I just went out to my car and the fob wouldn't unlock it. I tried my spare and still nothing. Changed the battery and still nothing. I can open the car with the key but obviously it sets the alarm off! Any ideas what this could be and how much it will cost to fix? Thanks in advance!!

    Reprogramming key?

    Hi Guys, Really simple question here. I recall seeing somewhere either on this forum or a different site that it is possible to program the MK2.5 central locking key to double lock the car when you hit the lock button once (instead of the standard - twice within 3 seconds). There was something to do with holding down two of the buttons at the same time for a couple of seconds but I just cant remember and for the life of me I can't find instructions anywhere! I recently got into the habit of double locking so I can see the indicators flashing from a distance to let me know the car is locked. Any help is appreciated!

    Removing MyKey

    Hi I just bought a Fiesta ST a couple of weeks ago and got bored in traffic one day and played with the My Key setting, now my car is perminantly on the 80mph limit etc. Ive read everywhere about turning the setting off but I only have that one key? Is there another way of turning MyKey off with only one key? Thanks Noah

    No remote key

    Apologies if this has been posted before. I have spent sometime looking but it's difficult to find a post that answers all of my queries for my specific situation. I recently purchased a 2013 Ford Mondeo Estate 2.0 TDCi but the car only came with 2 normal keys (see attached image), no remote key was supplied. These keys are a real pain because I have to open the drivers door, put the key in, and switch on the ignition before anyone else can open a door. if I don't do this the alarm will go off. We I look on eBay I can see that there are a lot of uncut key fobs for sale at a reasonable price but no one is selling a key for 2012 and above Mondeos. I have found a few keys which are the I think are specification I need but they go for £60 plus. Whats more, they fob seems to be a key-less entry system. The manual that came with my car explains how to program a new key but putting the key in the ignition and following a procedure but I'm not sure how this would work with a key-less system. Could someone please shed some light on this for me? Specifically, I'd like to know: What are my options ie am I forced to get a key-less fob or could I also get a remote key? Can I program the key myself? Is there anyway I can go about this for a reasonable price? If I get a remote key and program it, will it also switch off the alarm? Apart from this problem I am happy with the car and am enjoying driving it. Chris.
  24. Hi Everyone, I bought a Mondeo MK3 about a year ago, and the seller said that the central locking - unlock "didn't work". I've taken apart the key fob and there is no button on the actual circuit board like there is with the lock and boot buttons. I popped into a Ford dealership, but they're wanting to charge about £195 for a replacement key and programming. My question is, can I purchase a replacement board myself (and if so where from and what would I type in to "search for") and then program it myself (I assume it's just a case of putting the key in the ignition, twisting forward and back 2-3 times and pressing the button etc. to program the key (at least it was like that with my old Corsa). If anyone knows where I can get a board from and the programming instructions, I'd be most thankful.
  25. Hi everyone, my key on my focus mk2.5 has stopped working. I have changed the battery and tried doing the reset thing by turning the ignition on and off 5 times quickly, that resulted in a single beep and when I pressed one of the buttons a few times for the next step I got nothing. I tried holding the button, I tried pressing the button repeatedly a few times, I tried it in the ignition and out of the ignition, but still got nothing. I lost my normal key yesterday and this is me using my spare so don't know if the key is simply broken. As I remember though my original key slowly decided to gradually not want to unlock it from distances. Any help would be appreciated!
