Key problem???

This happens with both keys: The car won't always start... One is a replacement key - says "PATS" on the side of it, and the other is one of the originals. Seems like if we unlock the car with the remote that it won't start (sometimes it does though) and then sometimes even if we unlock the car with the key, it won't start. This doesn't always happen, but it's beena really big pain in the butt - especially for my wife since the school she works at isn't in the best of neighborhoods.

Strangely Enough, My other focus (liquid gray 02 ZX3) has been plagued by the exact situation you are speaking of, The dealer recommended having the ignition changed and get a new set of keys. I did to the tune of about $600 and have not had a problem since.
