Ford Transponder Key Blank
Ford Transponder Key Blank. This is a "transponder" key. Most modern automobiles have keys with transponders hidden inside the plastic head of the key. When a key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and turned, the car's computer sends a radio signal to the transponder. Unless the transponder replies with a valid code, the computer will not allow the engine to be started. Transponder keys have no battery; they are energized by the radio signal itself.
This is a blank key that must be cut to match your current key. Many hardware stores or locksmiths can do this for you. In addition, your car must be trained to recognize the transponder. You can do this yourself provided you already have two working transponder keys. Programming procedures to do this are included. NOTE: Some aftermarket keys are CLONE keys. IF ONE OF YOUR TWO WORKING KEYS IS A CLONE KEY THE ON-BOARD PROGRAMMING WILL NOT WORK! If you do not have two working, factory transponder keys, you will need a dealer or locksmith with computerized equipment to do the programming. Any fees for key cutting and/or programming are not included in price.
This key fits the following cars:
