find another focus owner... some keys match. Just can't start the car with PATS.

slimjim will work yes, but it is best to call AAA or road-side assistance with your local insurance co.

If you happen to have a slimjim, be careful not to damage the window... which is why I recommend a professional.

If you have some time, go to the Ford Dealer with the VIN and they will cut a key. I did that two years ago.

slimmy

i just bought a slimmy off amazon.com for like 6 dollars

but i was told that a slimmy wont work on a focus cause it uses a cable lock system instead of a rod system, anyone used a slimmy before?
