I have an '03 Focus, but have only ever had one spare key for it. I
really need to get another key, so thought I may as well get a remote
key as I presumed that's what would have come with the car in the first
place. I visited my local, not so friendly Ford dealer who basically
said it was going to cost an absolute fortune - almost £200 for a new
key and to have it programmed!! They said they weren't even sure if my
car has the remote facility, but if they did a 'disgnostic test' then
they could find out. Then they could produce a second key.
Right, firstly shame on you for buying a car with only one key present.
NEVER EVER do that!!!!!
Secondly it will cost upto £150-175 for the dealer to supply you with 1
standard key, 1 remote fob and programme them for the remote locking and the
Programming a 3rd/4th/5th/6th key with 2 existing ones is as the manual
Programming with only one present requires the car to be plugged in to
diagnostic kit and the ECU reset and aligned to 2 keys. You can then
programme more yourself to disable the immobilizer.
The remote locking you can programme a new fob yourself in *most cases if it
has the Siemens system. You can check the label on the CDL unit behind the
drivers ankle panel if you wish to determine this. If it has the Delphi
system you need Mr Ford to do it via the diagnostic kit.
Unless its a CL model it will be remote capable in most cases.
A good dealer should be able to read the VIN and tell you exactly.
