Just got a fiesta and only have one key. I'm after another. Timpsons just quoted me £120 or £140 (can't remember as I'd just chocked on my drink) for another, fully programmed remote key. Although I expect this is 1/2 the price of a key from ford, is there a cheaper option?

Thanks

Is it still under the Ford warranty? I have Kia and one of my keys broke, went to the Kia garage to see how much it would be to replace and they ordered one free of charge as I was still in the 7 year warranty.

There is, but you wont like it.

Inside the keys is what looks like a small, dark grey/black stone; this is the important bit, as if the car cannot detect it, it wont start, even if the key is cut correctly.

When the Police stole my key (long story), I had a broken spare, so had a cheap "glovebox" blank cut from the broken key, then went through a box of recovered transducer stones at the key cutters, to find one that worked with my car (there arent a huge number - hundreds??).

I then melted an indentation in the new key for the "stone" and glued it in place.

Been using that key since 2010 without issue.

ebay loads of companies on there that will cut and code one cheaply

Ford keys have 2 separate parts that require programming
Firstly there's the remote open close etc, this can be easily done yourself (with a cheap used key from eBay)
Then there's the transponder, this requires 2 working keys to add a third.

Failing that it has be reprogrammed using software

Yeah try ebay, I went to a couple of high street shops for a special key to be made, quoted £50, found a seller on ebay who provided me two keys for £5, bargain! These wernt car keys

Google auto-locksmith and your area. There will be someone who can do it, but it isn't going to be dirt cheap.

check with ford what their price would be as a comparison, timpsons seem to be quite expensive as of late

No, it's a 10 year old used runaround

So I won't be able to get another key as I only have one? I won't have both keys to add a third.

Look up local locksmiths shops. Also we have a small back street independent car spares shop that can copy Ford keys. They just put your current key in the machine to read chip then push the new one in to program chip. You only need to have 2 keys if you program yourself in car which is way to much trouble. If you don't have the key number to get it cut you can work out by just looking at the key. Each step depth is a number and you will find out how to do it on YouTube. I have a 2006 transit and the blue tag key was £40 ish to cut and program if my memory is correct, it was done at our local locksmiths.
