edfocusse13 finally got the key cut the other day. got lucky dealer i took it to didn't charge me to cut it and it is working great, took two time of trying to program to work think i went to fast the first time. would definitely recommended Artiway if you want a switchblade key at a decent price.

Lite12 My "Artiway VW" key is working fine now but the Ford logo has already rubbed off :(

edfocusse13 Got mine in the mail today, got the remote part of it programmed just need to get it cut and the transponder programmed. The blade is a little loose front to back "buttons to ford emblem" not enough to be a bother , and as long as it will program to the ignition I will be happy with the purchase.

Just curious if the OEM Fusion key is any better, since it looks like Welly uses OEM housings.
They both do say Valeo but for some reason the quality of the Artiway key housing sucks. There are so many sharp edges and some parts do not line up. When the key is not out, the opening where the key blade lies is not straight with a annoyingly large opening. The OEM Fusion housing feels better in the hand and looks like the quality control is better.

not sure if it was just the key I got or if anyone else noticed this too.

The Artiway housing would have just annoyed me to no end. Just a personal preference.

Here's one for the record books...

Here is a copy of an email I just sent to Welly about my key:

"Welly,

I am having some serious issues with my key, and I've had to stop using it. The other day, while I was stopped at an intersection, I began to get errors that the key transponder was not communicating with my car. It almost stalled out, but I was able to get it to stay running. Then, my shifts got erratic, like the computer was trying to immobilize my car. I was able to get it home, and when I started using one of my other keys, all of the problems went away.

I know this sounds weird, but have you heard of anyone else having these issues? Please let me know what you think.
Thanks..."

Maybe it's a problem with the battery in the key, or something else. But this is really serious. My car totally did some freaky things, but now that I switched back to a standard Ford key it is running normally. Coincidence? Probably not.

Thoughts, anyone?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably too late for this but you can use FOCCCUS to modify the RKE frequency to the Fusion remote. I havent done this--I just bought the artiway key like you have and programmed it.
