2007 Fusion Key Question

I recently bought a 2007 Fusion 4 cyl that had low km's, and is in near showroom shape, but the lot I bought it from only gave me one key, and have been no help in trying to get me a second one.

I called the local Ford dealership, who told me that a spare key would run me $199, plus $45 to program it. ??? I'm sorry, but I work in IT, and unless these keys are gold plated, I can't see how they can justify that price. Ridiculous.

So, my question is this, is there ANY way of getting a cheap spare made?

Re: 2007 Fusion Key Question

Take it that's for a spare remote key at that price ? Can you not get an ordinary key rather than a remote key fob if it's just a spare ?

Yes, it is a spare remote key, R.S. That's what I'm asking, is there ANY way of getting a cheap spare made? Is this the only type of key available for 2007 Fusions?

Re: 2007 Fusion Key Question

Had that problem a couple of years back when we replaced a family members car and was quoted £130 / $207 for an extra key fob ( only one remote fob supplied ) Wasn't worth it and just got a new key cut, with chip inside and recoded it in two mins as per instructions in owners handbook .

P.s
Think it cost £25 all in , but may be wrong , certainly wasn't dear .

Re: 2007 Fusion Key Question

You can get a chipped key and program it if you already have 2 keys. If you only have one ket to have another one programmed, you need to go to a dealer or a lock shop with the proper equipment.

We just bought a used 2009 Fusion. It came with two programmed transponder keys. I just ordered two blank keys on the Internet. These are keys specifically for Ford with a chip in them. Since I already have two working keys is it just a matter of having the new ones cut since I can program them myself? Can they be cut at a Pep Boys or similar business? Pep Boys was able to make a copy from one I have to just open the door - it won't start the car of course since it has no chip. The dealer and locksmith prices I'm seeing are outrageous!

Re: 2007 Fusion Key Question

As long as you have 2 programmed keys, you can have them cut and program them yourself.

Re: 2007 Fusion Key Question

Must just be proof of ownership they are asking for security reasons .Something similar operates in England when asking for a set of plates to be made .The UK Government introduced on 1 August 2008 regulations requiring the production of personal identification and vehicle registration documents when buying replacement plates from a retailer.

I just want to be clear so I don't ruin the two blank keys when they arrive. The cutting of them is just a physical exercise that any one with key-cutting equipment can do by copying my working key? Since I have two working, programmed keys I'm home free since I can program them myself? Am I correct on this?
