Default Re: how much is a new chipped key at the stealer ship

I bought a blank chip key on eBay for $10

It came with program instructions after you get it cut
Problem is... I couldn't get anyone to cut it for less than $15

Still... Super easy to program
1. Put original working key in ignition ,turn on, turn off
2. Within 3 seconds , put newly cut , unprogrammed key into ignition.
Turn on, turn off
3. Enjoy Savings of $55 from STEALership !

You do need 2 already coded keys. Don't buy cheep aftermarket keys off of evilbay. I did, because the seller offers them as NEW ford keys. After I had them cut (about 2 bucks) I accidentally dropped one, and it would not program to the truck. The other one programmed, but would not actually start the truck. It would crank, but not turn over, and then the engine immobilizer would kick in.

Seller wouldnt fix the problem

They would still charge out the @$$ to do it. They don't get you on the key, they get you on the cut/program

The guy I got my Ranger from had 2 chipped key.... The original Ford OEM key and an ILCO spare I later realized the Prick only gave me the ILCO one? What in the Hell does he plan on doing with the other one?

so i called around at three ford dealerships, 2 in fresno and the one i go to in reno. future ford of clovis will cut and program the key for me for 120 . i know its a pretty penny but i trust a ford dealership more than i trust a guy who comes out to you house in his van and has only 10 years of experience at what he does and if he screws it up somehow and doesnt have a warranty on what he does
