Re: Ford F-150 PATS keys question......

You definitely need 2 programmed keys. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
I have not heard/read anywhere about how to program new keys, if you only have one. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Here's the procedure I know about.
PROCEDURE:
1) good key - insert - turn to "on" for 1 second ("on", not "start") - remove
2) second good key - insert - turn to "on" for 1 second - remove
3) new key - insert - turn to start car
4) done.

Can you fake it out by using the first key twice. I only have one key for my wife's Expy and was told $150 for a second key by the dealer.

Real good question, but I doubt it would work.
According to everything I've seen, if you only have one key,
only the Dealer or a Locksmith (with the proper code reader) will be able to program the key.

I'd try out your theory, but my wife would [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] me if I screwed up her Escape keys. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

I do know folks have bought the PATS keys from Ebay for substantially less than the dealer.
Pardon the Escape forums, but heh, you should be able to garner the pertinent information.

I talked to a local dealer, and he said that you do have to have both original keys in order to program new keys yourself. If you try and program it without both originals, then the vehicle will not start for about 5 to 10 minutes. It will cost 75 bucks (in my area) just so they can hook up the computer and program the keys. Really sucks. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]
