    It may be a cloned key that relies on an internal battery. When the battery dies, the key can't start the car. Cloned keys are what the chain hardware stores sell. Anyone know?

    After now doing it multiple times with multiple ford vehicles, forscan is the way to go. Pretty easy, just need some patience.

    Let me ask the very obvious question......what is there to prevent some guy buying this kit, busting out a window, gaining entry, unlocking the doors and installing this key and driving away?

    Am I missing something, a good possibility I know??

    Other than the theft thing, it would have been real nice to have at 4PM in the Dollywood parking lot last August when I realized that my key had flown to parts unknown!

    I'm going to imagine that you need one of the original keys in order to set this thing up.
