Key fobs are on Amazon for about $7-8 with free shipping.

I recently had my gt lock the door while it’s was running in the drive way. No help from the 2 nearest ford dealers saying they had no way of getting key codes for cars over 10 years old. So I had to get a good lock smith to come and open the car and he also made me a new spare key and key fob. And gave me my key code of something ever happens again.

Need to find a local repair shop with a Ford Ids. That is the tool that will allow them to access the pats system to program the keys. once you have two keys programmed you can program more by your self but at the time id just have them do all of them.

Gentlemen,

I have lost one of my GT keys. I have purchased several keys and key fobs but they need to be programmed. According to the manual, since I only have one programmed key, only a dealer can program the additional keys.


Is there anyway around this since the 2 dealers around me are kind of idiots and I cannot stand going to them for this.



Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I know only the dealer can program it. If you have two keys you can add two(?) more, but if you only have one key the key has to be authenticated by the dealer.

Well... when you say "lost", is that lost in your house OR was it lost outside, taken form car, lost at a shop, etc.

If its gone for good, you want your remaining key reprogrammed; that way your "lost" key can never start the car, it can open door though (unless you change cylinder).

-Key Blank: $62
-Key Fob: $65
-Programming time at Dealer: $130

~$250+ all in.

I had a dealer tech come to my house with his laptop to program new key. Takes at least 20 minutes as a safe guard for theft.

When I say "lost" I should have said "Misplaced" it is in the house some place. I thought after one year it would turn up. Going to the dealer is a major pain. The dealer is very large, there is no place to safely park, everyone surrounds the cars like ants. it makes me nuts going there.

Great idea, I will call the dealer and see if they can do a house call.
