Cars keys have the habit of getting lost underneath couch cushions or coat pockets. At times, you might be lucky to find them but on some bad hair days, they seem to disappear forever. Unlike in the 90s, it’s hard to get Ford Car keys replacements/spares from any hardware store, car dealership or locksmith shop. The main reason for this was that it was extremely easy to copy car keys in the 90s.
Today, high technology advancement makes it very hard to copy Ford car keys. This has minimized car theft cases but has made it very expensive for one to replace his/her lost keys. The good news is that some locksmiths offer Ford key Replacement services at an affordable price.
History of Ford Car Keys
The first Ford car keys came with a red chip system. Here, the transponder chip was made from clear glass and hidden inside the head of the key. These keys had a small red square at their top right corner hence the name. The master key for the red chip system had a complete redhead.
After some time, the red keys were replaced by the Blue keys which also came with a transponder. Blue keys were more advanced and they aren’t entirely blue.
How Much Does Car Key Replacement For Ford Car Keys Cost?
In most cases, a replacement key for a Ford vehicle will run between $85.00 and $500.00 depending on the model and year of your vehicle. A majority of the keys land somewhere in the middle of those two numbers.
The latest Ford keys come with a more sophisticated black carbon chip but have the blue corner. Knowing the type of your Ford keys will make replacement faster and easier for locksmiths.
Types of Ford Car Keys
There are three main types of Ford keys:
· Ford Tibbe key
· HU101 Laser key
· HU66 Laser Key
Ford Tibbe Key
This is the most common Ford car key. It comes with a cylindrical shaped blade with 6 notches at the tip. These notches are cut into 4 different depths that operate the lock and are unique to only one vehicle. The key can be a remote locking key’ or a standard manual key’.
The remote key has 3 buttons – early models used two buttons. As of 2007, the Ford Transit has been using a blue remote key that resembles the older systems but can’t be manually programmed.
Tibbe keys are easy to replace. The locksmith will use a lock pick to gain access to your car. Once open, the depths of the lock will provide all the information necessary to cut a key. The process takes only 2 minutes.
Ford HU101 Laser Key
New Ford models operate with these keys. Their metal blade is flat and rectangular with a uniquely shaped groove cut down on each side. They can be manual or remote. These keys are more secure and hence harder to pick. At times, for a new key to be cut, the lock has to be removed.
Ford HU66 Laser Key
The HU66 Laser key system was implemented in the Ford Galaxy model shortly after its takeover. It’s much more complicated than the other two key systems.
