Question about 2003 Ford Focus
In order to learn a new PATS system key you will need to have two original keys. You would insert one of the existing keys into the ignition. turn it on and off. you would insert the second existing key into the ignition and turn it on for at least 1 second and turn it off. Insert the new key, within 20 seconds, turn the ignition on for a second and turn the ignition off. the security light will will either flash or stay on for a couple of seconds (i don't remember specifically) to let you know you added the new key successfully.
Since it sounds like you are no longer able to do this you have two options.
1. you can pull the new lock cylinder out and have it coded to your original key and then use the original key(s) to start the vehicle.
2. you will have to have the vehicle towed to the ford dealer and have them program the new master key.
let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using fixya.con!

SOURCE: ford focus rs alarm trouble
if its a factory alarm you put the key in and quickly turn the key on and of i cant remember if its 8 or 9 times but the horn will chirp then you push the lock and unlock on the fob the locks should respond then turn key off and your done. note that if you have more than one fob you have to press lock and unlock on all of them before you turn the key off and i believe you only have about fifteen seconds to do so if not let me know i will look it up at work
