I recently bought a 2002 Ford Windstar from a small dealer and he only had
one key and remote for the vehicle. It didn't take me long to find a spare
remote and uncut key on eBay. I managed to get the second remote programmed
with little effort, but it looks like the instructions say that I will need
2 working keys to program my spare key.
Is there any way for me to program my new key using only the single key that
No. You'll have to take it to the dealer. You should/could have gotten
something knocked off the price for only having a single key when you
After you get the new key programmed by the dealer, buy *another* key
and program it yourself. That way, you'll still have two keys in your
possession if you lose one, and you'll be able to program another key
without having to go back to the dealer.
