Ok isn't this just a key though-no gizmos inside or is there?

I would have thought it has some kind of transponder and antenna system, but am guessing at this. 

Has the key got a small red tab on it?

No-just a solid black plastic fob which doesn't seem to have anything in it, or come apart. No central locking either it's the base model.

I would have thought there will be a transponder built in. They dropped the red bit years ago.

The remote locking part is immaterial it the car had a PATS system.

All Fords ran the PATS (passive anti theft system) immobiliser from the late 90s onwards

Well i found a blank-but it does indeed state it needs a transponder fitting so i guess i'll have to take it to a garage to be done?

Google mobile car key cutting.

There will probably be someone local that can come and cut and programme a key on your drive. Won't be a Ford part but it will work.

I used to use a guy in Croydon when I was sales manager at Ford, a third of the price compared to the Ford service dept.... they hated that 🤣🤣

Cheers will look into that.

Oh that sounds promising just go and get one cut at any iron mongers it’s not gonna hurt the pocket too much either way give it a go 

 

Yep apparently there's a Timpsons outside our local big Tescos so i'll nip in & see what they can do.

Right just popped down there-he put it in a key reader thingy and it does have a transponder fitted-so £75 for a new key and programmed to my car. Probably can get it cheaper if i shopped around.

I think that is not much more than I used to pay a good 10 years ago for a new one cut and programmed,

At least you know now 👍

 

Yes mate i may be selling the KA and it seems 2 keys are preferred obviously so will get one done.
