I only have one key for my SES Ford Taurus and when I took it to a locksmith they said they couldnt make a copy because of the microchip inside of it. Do you know where I can get a copy made and about how much it will cost?
Thanks for your help!
Try a diffrent locksmith some have the computer to do so, i've had it done many times before price range about 75-125. depending on the car. also make sure you have all the keys present when you do it , they have to have them all at once.

Re: 2000 Ford Taurus - Spare Key Needed
To make another key for it, it has to be done at the dealer because of the security system. You're looking at around $300.00 to have it done. It may be cheaper or more. This is what they charge here in Wash. St. I'm not sure where you're located so call the dealer there and let them know your situation.

remove the rear seat ; if needed; crawl to the back of the hatch and release the hatch lock from inside using a blade screwdriver or, have a locksmith at the dealer make a new key by code using your vin number
Newer cars won't start unless they read a signal from the key, It costs about $25 to buy an extra key from a dealer, locksmith or some
local hardware stores. You then program the key to match the signal to
the car's computer. Dealers know how to do this, and some locksmiths
also have figured it out on many models.
Not what you want to hear but the dealership will cut a nwe one with proof of ownership....registration and license to match. otherwise, you may be able to call in a locksmith who may be able to at least get you in the vehicle...maybe even cut a key...good luck
I Had The Same Problem... In The Same Year Car except i have a manual trans. and a correction the the post below me the keys do have a chip.. i recently went and took my original key and had it copied (as a spare) .. and went to try the new key out and it would turn the cars electronics on but wouldnt crank the car. ford later told me the keys are programmed... jus so u have to go to the dealer and spend more money to get a new key
Take you ID, and your title or registration to your local ford dealer; they will cut you set of keys. It will cost you about $100.00 for the set, but a locksmith won't do it any cheaper for you either.
