Ford Car Keys
Most of the Ford vehicles found in the UK today use one of two key systems, the Tibbie or the HU101 laser cut key. Both these types of key can be supplied as a standard plastic top key or as a central locking remote key.
The Tibbie key was first introduced around 1990 and was still used up to 2014. This key has a cylindrical tip with slopes cut at various angles. This key uses 6 positions with depth cuts from 1-4.
The laser cut key is Fords latest design and consists of a flat steel blade which is milled on the top edge to produce what can be best described as looking like a “mountain range”.
This type of key was introduced around 2005 and uses 10 positions with depth cuts from 1-5.
Ford Lost Car Keys
If you have lost your only Ford car key don’t panic.
At Devon Car Keys we are able we are able to gain entry to vehicles fitted with either of these type of Ford locks quickly, easily and without any damage to your vehicle, even if the vehicle is deadlocked. We do not wedge the door and frame apart and insert wires into the vehicle to pull handles, which can damage the vehicle paintwork, nor do we insert wires into the door cavity as there is a risk of damage to the linkage arms which operate the locking mechanism.
In the event of you losing all your keys, we can quickly and easily decode your lock with our specialist equipment, usually without the need for the lock to be removed from the vehicle, and cut a working key ready to program within 5 minutes.
With our specialist diagnostic equipment we can program new keys to your vehicle at the roadside, so no need for the vehicle to be recovered to the dealer.
We are also able to remove a lost key from the system, giving you piece of mind that any keys that have fallen into the wrong hands, will no longer start the vehicle.
Ford Broken keys
If you have broken your Ford car key in Devon, we can attend site and supply you with a replacement, even if it is your only key.
Ford Remote Keys
We carry a wide range of remote central locking keys ranging from standard and flip out blades, to the newer style proximity or smart keys. These remote keys can be cut and programmed on site from our mobile workshop, without the need to book your vehicle in with the dealer. We also carry replacement remote blades for all Ford remote keys.
Ford Worn Keys
A common problem with Ford car keys is the key becoming worn and difficult to turn in the door or ignition. When this happens it is pointless duplicating the key as this will not solve the problem. At Devon Car Keys we can decode the locks and cut you a brand new key from the key code. This can all be done at your home or work at a convenient time to suit yourself from our fully mobile workshop.
Ford Lock Change
If you require your Ford locks and ignition to be changed we can offer either a complete replacement lock fitting service, or we can re-key your existing locks to a new key number, providing you with new keys without the expense of having to replace the entire lockset.
