    The dealer wants 431 plus tax for a copy of my ignition key. Has any of you got a key from another source? I do have one that I use now, so it shouldn't be so expensive!

    Ace Hardware can cut and program them. One you have 2 keys, you can program additionals on your own.

    I lost the master key for my 2010 and recreated it myself at a big savings. To do so, bought a key off Amazon then had it cut at an old school hardware store. Then programmed it in the truck itself, using Forscan and an OBD adapter.

    Download the Free ForScan app at Forscan.org/download .

    Buy a compatible key on eBay or Amazon. Use the following procedure for programming key and key FOB to your Ford. You can have the key cut at Home Depot usually free. It must be cut before attempting to program it to the vehicle.



    Programming Ford Key and FOB

    Step-by-Step Ford Key Fob Programming Instructions
    1. Close the car doors, then open the driver-side door. Press the UNLOCK button on the driver-side door.

    2. Next, turn the ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times. Do this within 10 seconds, making sure the 8th time ends on RUN. When you’ve entered programming mode, the door locks will lock and unlock. (Note: If the door locks don’t cycle, turn the key on/off faster.)

    3. Press any button on the Ford remote to be programmed. Do this within 8 seconds. The door locks will cycle again to confirm the keyless entry remote is programmed and ready to use.

    4. Have a second remote key fob? Again, press any button on the remote within 8 seconds to cycle the door locks. Repeat this step for any additional key fobs.

    5. Finally, turn the ignition to OFF. The locks will again cycle to confirm programming is complete.

    Transponder Key Programming



    If you don't have the ForScan program on a laptop. You must have 2 original keys that start your engine to perform this procedure. If you only have one working key or none at all it must be programmed by a dealer or locksmith! ( ForScan also works for this....) Your New third (unprogrammed) key must also be cut prior to performing this procedure.

    Please Note: If one of your keys is a cloned key from a hardware store this procedure will NOT work. This procedure requires original programmed keys.
    1. Insert an existing (working) key into the ignition cylinder.
    2. Turn the ignition cylinder ON (just shy of starting the car Without cranking the engine) and back to OFF. Ignition should stay in ON position for at least one second.
    3. Remove the existing key and WITHIN TEN SECONDS, insert a second working key and turn to ON and then back to OFF. Ignition must be on for at least one second but no more than ten seconds. Remove key.
    4. Insert the New (unprogrammed) key before twenty seconds have elapsed and turn to ON. Leave it in the ON position for at least one second and turn back to OFF.
    5. The security light will light up for THREE seconds to indicate the new key has been successfully programmed.


    Setting Up Your Ford Memory Seats

    Once you’ve got your seat, mirrors, telescopic steering column, and power pedals in the proper place, turn the key to put the ignition in the “On” position. Once you’ve got the power on, you’ll notice three buttons on the side panel of the driver’s side door. Press and hold the number 1 button for about five seconds until you hear a single chime. After the chime sounds, let go of the button and your seat settings have been saved! To test it out, simply move something a hair and press the button to watch it go back to your set position.


    Setting Up Ford Key Fob Memory

    For those times when you want your seat to be ready for you before you get inside your Ford vehicle, the key fob that you received with your vehicle can activate the memory seats for you! To sync your key fob with your memory seats, do everything we talked about earlier, except this time keep holding the appropriate memory button until you hear the chime twice. As soon as you hear the second chime, press the lock button on your key fob immediately. Now, every time you press the unlock button, your seat will automatically adjust to your preferred settings. This is especially helpful if you make use out of the easy entry and easy exit feature which moves the steering wheel and seat each time you get in and get out of your Ford.

    I used ace hardware, they cut the key and programmed it, however there is one issue, the copied key is an exact copy of the original key, you don’t reprogram the car as the key has the same code as the copied key, but if you want to program another key, you can’t as the car considers you only have one key because your original key and the copied key are identical!! The car requires 2 keys with different codes before it will allow programming of an additional key!! Just means you have to go to ACE or Walmart again for another key..

    The hardware store cloned keys won't work to make a third key. They also won't start the car when their internal key battery runs down.

    You need a real copy, programmed with a Forscan application or a very good diagnostic code application such as Auto Enginuity. Or a real locksmith can do it. Just make sure he's not just cloning your key.

    Yes, any Ford with a chipped key .... just make sure you get a compatible key from eBay or Amazon. The '05 should be an H84 chipped key.

    These work great : https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Ford-H84...-Key-LOGO-USA-Seller-TOP-QUALITY/232772343230


    Or if you want a one piece FOB/Key this one is great: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fits-Linco...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
