2000 Ford Taurus - Spare Key Needed

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!

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.

No, you'll have to call a locksmith in that makes these keys that are coded to the switch sensor. It'l just be a key for THAT switch only.

2006 ford fusion wont start with spare key

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

Lost keys

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.
