I am about to place a large stock order and am wondering what is the general consensus on which key will be the most popular out of these following keys (for focus)










The black one is actually see through and the yellow one is brighter by a little. What do yall think?? I dont want to get stuck with a bunch that don't sell
I am partial to yellow but ey that's me

Red looks pretty sweet, it'd match my red push button starter very nicely


How much?

And what does it cost to get the key cut and programmed at Ford usually?

Well it only costs a few dollars at most locksmith shops to get it cut and as long as you have your original 2 keys you can program it yourself. It is a eally easy process only takes a few minutes. I don't want to really get into what I am selling it for yet i am waiting on WRCFAN to approve first, but it will be a whole lot cheaper than most places. I saw one go on Ebay in blue for $47.00 mine will prob be at least Half of that

Oh right, for some reason I was thinking of my bro's VW car key (hard to get re-cut).

How do you re-program this by yourself?

P.S. If you get a buncha red, by the looks of things, it won't be hard to sell them.

another vote for red...which is the one that I'm ordering Friday
from where?? I am thinking about selling them for around $19.00 dollars including shipping in the US this sound about right??? I want to have great pricing but it is kinda hard to get a feel when i have seen them go from 20-40 on Ebay,.


Oh and i went ahead and brought in mostly red and clear
Except i got yellow for myself

Actually from everything i have read you need 2 keys to program this yourself. If you only have one you must take it in to a Ford dealership.
I don't know how much they charge to do it there. Basically to program it yourself you

1. Put first key in ignition and turn on then directly off.
2. Within five seconds put second key in ignition and turn on then directly off.
3. Within ten seconds put new key in and turn on and then off and leave in ignition without starting it for ten minutes.

That is how I did it and it worked great

I have two keys...it's just that 1 of them was a replacement. You mentioned "original" keys so I thought having had one replaced may cause problems programming other keys

there are no problems with 'replacement' keys....all you need is 2 keys with the proper pats code and that code will be programmed into any new keys using the posted method
