You can try to scan it and get codes but unless you buy a ford scan tool they use at the dealer or one that it is very advanced and expensive which which the dealer one would be. You would be out of luck. Lets start by seeing if you canget some codes. Please post exact code numbers not code descriptions.

Even if they could program the key, at this point you don't even know if that is the problem.

If you're going to answer a question, please type something that at least can be understood and make some sort of sense.
