dont know if this will help but i recently lost the only fob/key i had, i spoke to a mechanic who knew a auto locksmith who programed a new key/fob at where my car was parked for £190
You need the key number, which should be with the documentation, they can cut a key from that, it will need programming to the car. With only one key you may have to take the expensive route unless you know some one with IDS, as for the fob, it would need to be programmed to the car, I used IDS for mine but there may be a series of ignition cycles etc that will program it inHi,
just acquired an x-type (54).
it only came with one ignition key, so I'd like to get another as a spare (not just the fob).
can anyone tell me what I need to do, what the process is and what the cost is likely to be?
Oh, our prices haven't gone up in the last 8 years.Since the post is 8 years old I suspect they have probably sorted it by now...
This still confuses my boss with our fleet of transits who informs me that the key is broken as it locked the van, but now won't unlock it. Never checks the reg on the fob with the number plate.Ford Tibbe keys. Interesting fact. You can lock any Tibbe lock with any Tibbe key.
For instance your X type key will lock a fiesta which is fitted with the Tibbe lock and vice versa.
