check the ford manual... I believe if have two of the keys, you can put the first in, then the second, and turn it to the on and off position a few times and then insert the third and actually start the car truck it has the ability to program itself. But if you have only one spare key, you are SOL.

can't remember for certain

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

What he said. If you have 2 programmed keys you can program it yourself. You can find the instructions on this forum http://www.ford-trucks.com/. I'm sol 'cause my truck came with only one key. Costs abt 50 bucks at locksmith here in Indiana. Dealers I'm sure charge more.

If you were closer, I'd be able to help ya out... but like was mentioned, if you already have 2 programmed keys, you can just cycle each one from off to run and then cycle the unprogrammed one and it'll program it. But if you don't have 2, gotta have it done. I know at the dealer a key is about $32 + 0.5 hr labor, so roughly $80. Not sure how much a locksmith would charge...

It was like $10 for the key (i've only got two of them), they want $60 to program it. I know exactly how long that takes with the right equipment, and it ain't worth $60 (if i can help it)

Which model Ford is this for? Do you have the key with the little visible square peg in the end of the key handle (like the Focus) or the smaller softer molded end like thr trucks use?

I've programmed spare keys (typically for remote start installations) on a couple Rangers and my current Focus and only purchased the spare transponder-equipped key form Ford, but I progammed them myself on the car.

I got a key made at an ACE once. They put the key in some box to tell them what coded key it was, got a blank, and cut it. it cost 15 bucks a the time and it did work.

I'll try the one right down the street, thanks. I was thinking I had to have it done at a dealer with only one working key.

Not sure but sounds like you may be talking different things here. He's trying to get the transponder in the key programmed to operate with the PATS system.

That was probably an old GM key, all they had was a resistor pellet in them. The Ford PATS system in Cerk's truck has a transponder in the key that the vehicle has to be programmed to accept. If you have 2 keys that are programmed it's a simple operation, if not you need to use a scantool.

Was ACE able to help you out Cerk? What'd it cost?

+1, I've done it on other vehicles but I think you need two (I had two valet keys and needed one to get into the trunk/glove box)

Haven't done it yet...I know it's got to be a dealer though.
