Programming a new key

Hey guys I just got an additional key off of eBay and was wondering if anyone knew how to program a new key. I have the original keys neither of which is a mykey. Any help is appreciated thank you.

There's usually a procedure in the owners manual on how to do this. If you do not have a copy of your owners manual, then it's easy to get a PDF copy: type your year, make, model, and the words "owners manual". A site (or several) will pop up pointing you to a location to download a free copy from Ford's web site.

I took a guess that you owned a 2013, and this site came up:

http://www.motor-talk.de/forum/aktio...hmentId=731340

It mentions in the "Security chapter on how to program one:

Programming a Spare Key
Note: A maximum of eight coded keys can be programmed to your
vehicle. Only four of these eight can be integrated keyhead transmitters.
You can program your own integrated keyhead transmitters or standard
SecuriLock coded keys to your vehicle. This procedure will program both
the engine immobilizer key code and the remote entry portion of the
remote control to your vehicle.
Only use integrated keyhead transmitters or standard SecuriLock keys.
You must have two previously programmed coded keys and the new
unprogrammed key readily accessible. See your authorized dealer to have
the spare key programmed if two previously programmed coded keys are
not available.
Read and understand the entire procedure before you begin.
1. Insert the first previously programmed coded key into the ignition.
2. Turn the ignition from off to on. Keep the ignition on for at least three
seconds, but no more than 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition off and remove the first coded key from the ignition.
4. After three seconds but within 10 seconds of turning the ignition off,
insert the second previously coded key into the ignition.
5. Turn the ignition from off to on. Keep the ignition on for at least three
seconds, but no more than 10 seconds.
6. Turn the ignition off and remove the second previously programmed
coded key from the ignition.
7. After three seconds but within 20 seconds of turning the ignition off
and removing the previously programmed coded key, insert the new
unprogrammed key into the ignition.
8. Turn the ignition from off to on. Keep the ignition on for at least six
seconds.
9. Remove the newly programmed coded key from the ignition.
The key will start the vehicle’s engine and will operate the remote entry
system (if the new key is an integrated keyhead transmitter) if it has
been successfully programmed. The theft indicator light will illuminate
for three seconds and then go out to indicate successful programming.
If the key was not successfully programmed, the theft indicator light may
flash on and off. Wait 20 seconds and repeat Steps 1 through 8. Take
your vehicle to your authorized dealer to have the new key programmed
if you are still unsuccessful.
Wait 20 seconds and then repeat this procedure from Step 1 to program
an additional key.

Key

We were down to one key for my wife's Honda and I bit the bullet and went to Honda.
Even if you can find a Ford dealer that will cut it, there is no guarantee it will work.
Sorry, there are just too many horror stories out there about keys from ebay.

Locksmith will be able to cut it for you.. I did mine for 5 bucks and sync it with your two Ford keys.

MPT TUNE, Borla S-Type, Airaid Cai, Ford racing X pipe, Mac ceramic shorty headers, 2010 GT500 rims, 35% tint, Sr Springs, J&M phb, camber bolts, blacked out side markers, front and taillights.

I read all the reviews and everything looked good. I wanted a flip key as the regular keys get stuck in the net pockets in some of my shorts. I'll try a locksmith as soon as I finish at the Apple store.

Programming a new key

I still have mine, ordered it a month ago. NO ONE is able to do it (tried Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot). I called several locksmiths in my area, and they want to charge me between $60-$90. I think that's too much just to get a key cut! A lot of people have, had theirs cut for no more than $10

I stopped at a locksmith in Orlando and he cut the key for $3.00 a side. Good thing I was out there for the Apple store. Every where in Daytona was giving me a hard time.

Same here man, I don't know what's the big deal. I just want it cut, it's just it cutting any regular key. Supposedly they have a machine just made for "vehicle keys" not any machine can do it.

A lot of them want to program it or the machine cannot fit the key. Call the locksmiths in your area someone will cut it.
