As above, but I do know that you will not be able to open another E series with your key. Maybe there is the odd fluke with the key combination, but that's been the case with all sorts of cars, not just Fords. All the E series keys DO NOT have any sort of chip or programme in them, they are just a plain old key. I unfortunately locked myself out of my XR8 at work once, and as our company has mostly Falcons for company vehicles, I treid every key I could get my hands on. They ranged from EB II to AU II and not one of them opened any lock of any type. I had been told that all the locks in the boots of Falcons were the same, and this is not the case either. So I wouldn't panic if I was a late model Falcon owner, the cars are secure, and even if you did get in, you'd never get past the electronics anyway!!!!
As for Russell's post, mate, you're better off keeping that sort of thing to yourself. No need to advertise that sort of info, even if it's slightly true. But by the same token, people, don't lock valuable goodies in your car anyway!! There is always a way if someone wants to get into your car.. B*stards.
