Default having trouble programming a 3rd key on 2010 ranger.

I already got the key at ford dealership and they cut it for me. I tried to program it per manual instructions, but I cannot get it to program and start the 2010 manual tranny ranger. do I have to pay ford service dept for them to program the computer or can an independent locksmith shop can do it? only thing i can think of is either i am not doing it right, or both working keys that i got when i got ranger new are both identical and do not have different IDs on them. Same thing happened from a key I got from ebay i couldnt program it non oem, but this key is OEM straight from dealer....

Default Re: having trouble programming a 3rd key on 2010 ranger.

I figured it out by searching the internet how to program a third key. WHO EVER TYPED THE SECTION IN THE MANUAL ON HOW TO PROGRAM YOUR OWN KEY IS RETARDED OR DOESNT GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT.

The owners manual needs to say:

note: when programming keys yourself DO NOT LET KEYS BE CLOSE TO EACH OTHER OR ELSE YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PROGRAM YOUR OWN KEYS.


Once I separated all keys, one on floor passenger, one on floor driver and one in center seat everything worked first time.

THIS SHOULD BE A STICKY BECAUSE NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN HERE KNOW THIS.....


SOME DEALERS AREEE EFEENNN AHOLES.... One dealer wanted to charge me 30 minutes worth of labor just to cut key and i bought the blank from them. and theh 60 bucks to connect handheld device to programmm it. i ended up going to a diferent dealr and they cut it for me for free. good thing i read on a different forum someone posted keys need to be separated or it wont program.... i almost paid dealer to program it if i would have not know of needing to be separated.
