Look in the center console, on the inside of it towards the back, is there a remote slot there that you can put your remote into? Also, there is a battery in the remote, shouldn't be dead, but I don't want to rule it out, it is a cr2032 do you have a spare close by chance? thank you.

Is there a way to start the car with the key in the car when the truck says no key present?
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Should be a remote slot in the center console area you put the key into.

This is a 2018 superduty f 250 king ranch... should there be a remote slot there?
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

I though it was, maybe under the rubber mat in the cup holder.

I don't see it right off, I know the 150's have it, I would think the 250's would as well. How many miles are on it now ? Ford roadside assistance will come out if it's still under 36K .

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
