did you turn the new key back to "off" before trying to start the truck?

you may have to have your computer reset as Im about positive you engaged the engine immobilization. can you still crank it with your original keys? if not thats what you will have to do. your only other choice is to buy one of those $100 keys from the dealership

I paid $22.00 for the key/having it cut, and $37.50 to have the tech hook his laptop up and program the second key. Then I bought one of those e-gay keys and programed my third key mself.

my 2010 ranger will start no problems with both original keys I got when i got it new. even after trying to program the 3rd key and failing to program it my ranger will start no problems with either original keys. and yes i turned the new key back to off to fininsh programming. it looks to be straight forward , but either the key from ebay is bad or ford gave me 2 keys with same transponder ID. on my original post i made it sound like my truck will not start with any key, i meant only with the new key will not start. my bad my bad.


would those small chip things with red LED under dash next to hood release prevent me from programming a 3rd key???

The eBay key is probably bad. I got a bad one that way and learned my lesson. Use genuine Ford or Stratus brand (Ford-approved) instead.

The Ford or Stratus PATS keys that I have bought from the Ford dealer weren't anywhere near $100. Since I opted to program the system myself, the keys were 'only' about $25~30 each.

The parts depeartment at my local dealer also cut them for free although that may not be the policy everywhere. Free or pay, the dealer should be able to cut the correct profile on your new key based on your VIN or keycode.

you are lucky you didnt immobilize the engine, cause then youd have to do like i said and have it towed to the dealer to reset the computer lol

just so you guys know all keys need to be separated when programming or else it will not work. finally got it to work by not letting all keys to sit in same place when programming.
