Dealer Wants $170-ish for New Key. Know a Locksmith Who Can Do Cheaper? - May 2, 2013, 12:03 PM

New Ford PU truck, bought it used. I fucked up when making the deal, just assumed there were two keys. If I had realized that, a 2nd key included would have been part of the deal. Nope, just one.

Went to Sheehy Ford in Gaitherssburg, they said about $170 to program the 2nd key since I only have one. If I had two keys, I could program the 3rd myself.

I hear locksmiths can make chipped keys. Anyone have that done and can recommend someone?

Of course I can always stash the key close by the steering wheel and use regular keys to start it. But I'd really like to have a 2nd key w/o doing that.

Thanks, in advance.

Check lowes and home depot. They stock the new fangled keys. I don't have a new fangled key so I only know what the guys at the stores told me (recently got some new keys for my truck).

This happened when my gf bought her Nissan at sheehy.

We went back in a few days and asked if she could get a new fob or whatever it is(push button start) and they ordered her a new one at no charge.

Maybe call the dealership you got it at, if that wasn't the one you already contacted, and ask them.

I programmed my key myself and I only had one key (this is on a Caddy though). Simply got the blank cut, started the car with the good key with the new key on the console and then the new key started the car right up. You might be able to do the same if you read around. I only needed the dealer to get the fob programmed (which I never did).

Ace Hardware now stocks the chipped keys for most vehicles. They're about $70 for my 08 IIRC. I'm sure yours would be pretty similar.

Edit: That's most vehicles minus the laser cut ones. They need to have teeth all the way through so the Lexus, Beemer, Benz keys they can't do. Ford they should have though.

The dealer is lying through their teeth. You can easily program the key yourself...

The truck was bought used from DARCars Volvo. I just went to Sheehy Ford since its close by. Sales guy at DarCars says he's trying to contact the former owner to see if he still has that 2nd key. If not, sales guy says he will uses his discount to help me out w/ a second key purchase.

Newgirlie, if it doesn't work out, I will PM you, if you by chance could pull some strings for me at Sheehy Ford, I'd be grateful!

I don't beleive that to be the case. Owners manual says.... you need a min of two working keys to program addtl keys. If only one working key is available, the dealer will have to program the 2nd. Once two working keys are available owner can program up to 8 keys max.

And that is what the dealer also stated. I'll ask some questions on the Ranger forums to confirm that.

This is true, my 2001 Sport Trac says the same thing in the manual. I was quoted $80 for a third key. I don't know why people don't turn in both keys when they sell, it's just common courtesy.
