Hi I have just bought a 16 plate Ford Focus. It came with 2 keys. Cut a long story short I now have 2 keys that are stored as mykey. Basically I do not have an admin key anymore. I cannot clear mykey without haveing an admin key. Will I have to take the car to ford to turn one key back to admin.
 
Thanks in advance
 
Dan

A quick google suggests that a dealer or someone with access to Ford IDS can delete the keys then re-add them, they then become admin keys.

 

I haven't done it, don't have Mykey, so the next bit is vague and uncertain.

It *may* be possible to DIY, try reading here.

Thank you. Just spoke to Ford and they said I will need to bring in both keys to have them wiped. Cost £105. Day light robbery!!!

That's real bad news Dan.
Just double checked my Mk5 H/Book and gives same info.
Why would anybody make both original keys to "My Key".
Two things, would it be cheaper to have one key returned to an "Admin" key. Once you have that you can go into veh menu and clear other "My Key" back to std/admin key yourself.
OR
buy new programmed Admin/std key from dealer, then clear your two "My Key" yourself, end up with 3 std keys

Hi Trevor, When I called Ford they said bring both keys and will wipe them for £105. I realise I only need one reverting back to admin but when I called them back they said same price!  Never thought about the other option about buying a blank from them and reprogramming it as admin. Will go for this option if its no more than £105. Will call them tomorrow for a price. Thank you for the idea.

 

Cheers

 

Dan
