Excellent customer service
Very pleased with the service. I arrived early but they were able to start work immediately and finished the job quickly.

Mr Mike Cox
My car is an Infiniti imported from Dubai and the main U.K. dealer was unable to programme a second key. The radio frequency used on an import is different from a domestic supplied car. Car key Solutions were able to source a key and programme to my car in a couple of days. the engineer did the job in half an hour and took me through everything to make sure the key worked correctly. I can thoroughly recommend Car Key Solutions.

Which Ford Models’ Car Key Do You Own?

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 Car 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 Car Key Services Do We Provide?


Lost Or Broken Ford Car Key Replacement

If breaking or losing your Ford key, and you’re considering using a main dealer for replacing and programming new ones – think about the cost. You have to tow your vehicle to the dealership before you add the cost of the transponder chip programming, as well as the possible other control units replacement. 

However, if you choose Car Keys Solutions, the car keys specialist, we will be with you on the very same day with our mobile service. We can cut new keys on the spot, and program your Ford replacement key while you wait!


Ford Spare Key

We highly recommend that you have a Ford spare key in case of an emergency. It is the most cost-effective and hassle-free way to prevent getting into trouble when you lose or break your key. We can also create a spare car key on the spot, to give you peace of mind that you’re not going to be away from behind the wheel for very long.


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 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!


Car or Van Unlocking

Have you accidentally locked car keys in the boot of your car or the back of your van? Is there something that you’ve left in your locked vehicle that you urgently need to get out? Well, this is more common than you may think!

Car Keys Solutions’ emergency team can be at your side quicker than ever to open your doors. Our auto locksmiths are professionally trained and experienced in the best techniques to get your vehicle doors open quickly and safely with no nicks or dents left behind.


Car Key Repair

Not every key needs replacing after it gets broken. Fixing a broken car key can be just as easy as making a new one. Our skilled Ford auto locksmiths can piece together and fix any broken components at a fraction of the cost of a brand new Ford replacement key. If your key has snapped off in your car door or bent in the ignition, then we can extract it without leaving any damage. We can also repair Ford keys that are sealed when the remote stops functioning.


Door Lock Repair/Ignition Barrel Repair

Maybe it’s not your key that’s broken, and it’s perhaps a lock that’s causing the problem or even the ignition. Thankfully, our experts can identify the problem efficiently and have it fixed in no time. If your key gets stuck in the lock, we can remove it safely and even repair the lock afterwards. Using the best equipment, our highly trained auto locksmiths can get the job done without any fuss.

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.

Which Ford Models Do Our Car Key Services Cover?

We cover practically every model of Ford in our car and van key repair and replacement services. With the expert knowledge to know what your car needs, we can repair and replace car keys for:



  • Ford Transit 2006 2014

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 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.



  • Ford Transit Connect 2015 2019
  • Ford Transit 2014 2019
  • Ford Transit Custom 2012 2019

Ford Transit & Transit Custom

This flip remote key fob is equipped on the above models and is an evolution from the old Tibbe key. Here at Car Keys Solutions, we do car key repairs and replace this type of Ford remote key on the same day service.

Useful tips:

  • If your Ford Transit remote is not operating, it could be that remote battery has gone down. Those types of remotes are sealed and not designed for servicing or battery replacement. Here at Car Keys Solutions, we can provide a replacement car key at the same time we repair it.
  • In the case of a no start with an immobiliser active, then you should check the handbook message on your dashboard. The most common reasons for this fault are:
    1. the antenna reader around the ignition barrel may be faulty and fail to read the transponder in the remote key. 
    2. The key may have become defective.
  • The ignition barrel on these Transits can become defective and get jammed, therefore not allowing the remote key to turn. When you need an ignition barrel repaired or replaced, call Car Keys Solutions on 0203 3393 5669. Auto locksmith on same day service, and we stock a wide range of ignition barrels and locks.

Here is a banana! Not a real banana, of course, but a Ford remote key banana shape. This remote key was the upgrade from the old Tibbe no flip. There’s more style with this new Ford key, and that’s why it was quite popular in use across most of the ranges.


  • Ford C-max 2007 2010
  • Ford Focus 2007 2011
  • Ford Kuga 2008 2011
  • Ford Mondeo 2007 2007

Now, if the above key was a banana, then this is, even more, a keyless banana! How would that be? Seriously, this key was the first key developed by Ford with a keyless technology and only used for Focus, Mondeo, Kuga, and C-max. If we were to talk about the Ford key replacement cost needed to note this type of key, then it would be one of the most expensive from all of the models. Even now, we don’t see the price coming down. Another different aspect is that the emergency key blade also has an immobiliser chip and can be inserted into an ignition barrel to enable the engine to start.

It may be that the Ford Key designer liked fruits or that we have a vast imagination, but you can agree the above key looks like a pear. Correct? Well, this Ford smart remote key fob, called pear shape, was equipped on models starting early 2010 up to late 2017 with no difference in the exterior design. However, an internal electronic board and immobiliser transponder has changed over the years.

  • Ford Mondeo 2014 2017
