No, there should be a different key which would work, but the blade for the 2012+ is different from the earlier models.

I have verified from my parts department that the Fusion key will work. It has the same transponder as the Focus. We can't even cut them at the dealership. I would assume that if I were to order the part # for the Fusion key from Ford with my key code, I will be good.

what's the pricing going for on those keys from the dealer I might just put my tail between my legs and go that route if its reasonable

If the transponder is the same and the blade is the same would ford cut them to match the cut code for a different model though? That I don't know.

AFAIK the standard key was like $120 or so from the dealer at cost or something.

I need/ want a third key to be able to program others in the future if one goes missing, and I might actually like the switch blade better than the standard one as it won't dig into your leg as much.

That and it reminds me of the tibbe keys from that Jaguar X-Type that was loaned to my grandmother when I was 16 and that I had gotten to drive. The key was almost the coolest part. Lol.

the reason I like the switchblade is that it never fails when I have my hands full I pull the key out at the last minute after realizing I locked my door and scratch near the handle or at work it digs into my leg. the link I posted is offering two blank fusion keys for 105.00 the only problem is no one around here will cut the one I already have so I'm back to square one damn

apparently I've been a good little boy. gentleman came into work who was a locksmith I told him my problem and I showed him my key...he said he should be able to cut it and will try tomorrow "fingers crossed". if that works I might be tempted to order the fusion one of ebay since its a lot nicer if it can be programmed by the two key method can you confirm that misfire?
