WHICH MITSUBISHI MODEL KEYS NEED REPLACING?

Ford has always been an excellent motor company. Having built vehicles across all ranges, they are prevalent in the UK and have earned themselves the name as the Backbone of Britain. In the mid-1990s, vehicle manufacturers started to use immobiliser systems, and Ford used a selection of different remote and manual keys.

WHAT IS THERE TO KNOW ABOUT FORD KEYS?

KEY OPERATION

Old Ford vehicles equipped with immobilisers had a red master key that allowed key programming of another Ford replacement key by a procedure of cycling ignition. All other keys are valet keys, and they were black. However, more modern systems don’t have a master key, and the only way to create a new Ford key replacement is by diagnostic equipment. The Tibbe Ford key style came into circulation during the 1990s and was the shape of an oval with tips. This type of key was used across the full range of Ford cars and vans until it was stopped late 2013 on the Transit Connects.

PATS LED INDICATOR

The vehicle security system used by Ford is called PATS (Passive Anti-Theft Systems). It integrates several control units that have to be aligned in the programming software for the engine to be able to start. All Ford vehicles have a PATS LED indicator. When the ignition is switched on, they will brighten for approximately three seconds, and at this time, it runs a self-test. When the PATS system is immobilised, the LEDs will flash quickly, or the light will go out if the test has passed.

WHAT FORD KEY SERVICES DO WE PROVIDE?

LOST OR BROKEN FORD KEY REPLACEMENT

We can cut new keys on the spot, and program your Ford replacement key while you wait!

CAR KEY PROGRAMMING

In some cases, the remote key or transponder chip can become desynchronised. In this case, ECU installed in the car will not be able to recognise the correct signal and will stop the engine from starting or central locking to operate. If the car won’t start and you believe it is a problem with the key, then it may be that the transponder chip needs re-syncing. Here at Car Keys Solutions, we have the latest dedicated diagnostic and programming equipment to reprogram Ford keys and get them working again. Before you apply for a brand new set of keys for your car or van, give us a call as we may be able to help and provide a cheaper option!

HOW DOES AN IMMOBILISER WORK?

Most vehicles sold in England after 1995 have an immobiliser function, including a transponder chip fitted into a remote key or manual key. As technology has evolved, immobiliser systems are continually changing and becoming more and more complex. About 15 years ago, Ford changed the anti-theft system operation. Keys programmed using the fixed transponder code now use a more advanced system of coding with different security code every time the vehicle starts. The coding procedure is known as a rolling code. This will help to keep cars secure and safe from anyone trying to break in with a duplicate key. A control unit operates the security system as a standalone unit or part of another module. The immobiliser ensures that every time a key not programmed to that specific vehicle is used, the engine will be stopped from starting.

Ford Transit key

Here is the blue head remote key fob with a Tibbe blade equipped on the Ford Transit from 2006-2014. Here at Car Keys Solutions, we provide Ford Transit key replacements like this one the same day service.

Useful tips:

  • If the key remote is not operating, it could be that the remote’s battery has gone down. These types of remotes are sealed and not designed for servicing or battery replacement. The remote battery recharges by being in constant use in the ignition.
  • Over time those types of Ford keys blades begin to wear out, and locks or ignition barrels become hard to turn. Replacing the key blade when it starts wearing out, will extend the life of the door barrels and ignition barrel.
  • Activating central locking function by operation of the key in the door barrel over a long time, then the barrel will fail. You should leave the door lock usage only for an emergency alternative to opening the car/van and not for the everyday daily use.
