Keys

Hi guys im new to the board.

 

Quick question about keys. When i brought my mark 6 i was only given one key. I didnt think this was a problem at the time but when i read the hand book it told me that i need a red master key in order to make a copy that would start the engine. ;(

 

I went to my local ford and they told me it would probably cost £700-£800

to get every thing sorted!

 

Has anyone else been in this situation, will it really cost that much or should i go someware else?

 

Thanks alot, great site.

The red key allows reprogramming of up to around 15 more keys only!But it must be a 'chip' type key (from Ford).If you do not have the red master key :( ,then there is an alternative.

Get a couple of copies of the key you got left(the one with the immob chip in it) then 'stick' or tape that Chipped key inside your steering cowl,this will will basically un-immobilise your car permanently.You then just use any of the cheaper copied keys to start the car,as the chip in the tapped up key is stopping the immob from coming on.Not a perfect set up, but better than spending around £500....... ;) Al.

You can get as many keys cut as you like, problem is you can't teach the new keys the immobiliser code unless you have the red master key ;(

 

What i have done in the past to get over this. get a couple of standard ford keys cut from anywhere. make sure they work.

the immobiliser works by reading the chip in the key. so just tape the old key with the chip around the immobiliser and then just use normal keys. :thumb:

Me and chriss no about disabling the imboliser, and it not written any where as they want u to know, also i know this may sound stupid but if u know any pro car thiefs which i sort of do, they know how disarm the imboliser, i knew one lad who specialised in nicking sabs as he found them more of a chanllenge, but i think he in prison now :D He help me brake into my metro when i lost my keys, he prob the b*stard that nick my stero stuff though 8o
