Re: help!!

Sounds like a security problem. Do you have a spare key to try?

Re: help!!

Are you using the original key? If you had one made at walmart it will not have the majic microchip. Or you chip has been shorted out, can we say $100. Worst case, will have to towed to a ford dealer for reprograming. Had you worked on it or messed with little black boxes??

Re: help!!

Hey, I am a ford certified tech, and my first question is do you have a known good key? If you don't, then yes you're going to pay about $80 to have a key cut and programmed for you. It sucks, but there's no way around it. TRUST ME.
