I bought a new 5 button fob to replace one I lost for my 2011 Sport (has pushbutton start). Dealer wants $135 to program it. Are there any other options?

The owner's manual has steps on how to program a key to your vehicle.  I believe, however, that you need at least two working keys to begin with.  If you only have one, a trip to the dealer or perhaps a locksmith is needed.

Hey revo1059,

 

Check out pg. 115-121 of the 3rd printing of your owner's manual here. You'll find instructions on programming. In addition, you may speak with your local Ford Dealer. Find one here.

 

Todd

OP said he lost a key, the procedure in the owner's manual works only if he had both keys on hand. So since you only have 1 operational key/Fob, you will have to do it at a dealer or a locksmith who has the correct equipment.

Suggestion: Ask the dealer/Locksmith to delete the lost key, so that it won't work unless reprogrammed again, this is to ensure unauthorized entry by anyone who might find the key.

Thanks. Since I lost one of the remotes it looks like I'm hosed. Being charged an hour for something that couldn't take any longer than 15 minutes hurts a little.

Thank you for providing additional info, omar302.  :)

Please let me know if you have any questions following your dealer visit, revo1059.

You should go to the Locksmith, they will disable the one you lost and set up a new one. Right now if someone found the lost one they have your car! I think you will need the tag that was on the fob when you got it - my locksmith told me to save that tag in a safe place.
