It about those blasted keys, again! This post is for information for anyone
intent on buying a used one.
Rule 1) Make sure you have the RED key supplied with the car.
Rule 2) Make sure you have the RED key supplied with the car.
Reason; I bought one for my daughter, being a Ford Cortina/diesel/ please
keep my cars simple type of fella. It seemed a cracker. Still is. BUT...
then she had her handbag stolen, with, yup, you've guessed, her one and only
key to the car (no telling kids).
Had to replace the ECU, and the barrels (if you end up doing this... don't
forget the fuel filler cap :-) at a very good price, but we still are left
with one key.
Went to my guy, and tried to get a new one cut, but he's out of blanks with
the MeggaMoss chip. He's going to search around for a new supplier.
Moral: Buy one, but Make sure you have the RED key supplied with the car, so
you can reprogramme new ones.
