2001 Focus. Lost my only key!!

Hi folks, I hope all is well with you
Well I neglected to get that second key from Ford for my 2001 Focus DOHC automatic and now I'm paying the price. Now I'm wondering if I can grab a used key, ignition lock with sensor and computer to solve the problem. Ford wants way too much for this job! Any suggestions for me.
Thanks a bunch, Wally.

Can you not get the dealer to run your VIN to get the key code (for cutting the blank) and then get the car programmed to accept the new keys ?

My son-in-law works for a Ford dealer in Alberta and apparently the car is too old, they don't have stock of the old chip keys or something to that effect. His suggestion was to see a locksmith but I'm sure they won't have one in their back pocket.
I'm a mechanic so I don't mind swapping parts if that will work. I just have to know which parts to swap.
Thanks again, Wally
