Hi, my name is ***** ***** the computer is new, it needs to have the key reprogrammed into the computer, the flash they do is just for the fuel mapping, they cannot program the key with out having the key and the computer installed, did you just install the computer without programming the key?

is the ford dealer the only place to get this key programmed
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 2 years ago.
No, we actually use mobile locksmiths to come the vehicle and program them, they are alot cheaper than the dealer and saves a tow bill, out local locksmith charges 70 dollars to do this, the dealer gets over 200 dollars, but until the key is programmed into the computer, it will not start,Tim
