Key fob programming and transponder chip.

Hi All,

First things first, i've done a ton of research plus trial and error on programming an aftermarket flipkey fob for my '15 focus. I, cannot, for the life of me, get my car into programming mode. I've tried 4 turns, 6 turns, 8 turns, seatbelt on/off, wrapped around my neck....Anyway, I found a post on these forums that gives instructions on programming a third key, which sounds like just programming the third transponder chip to allow starting with the key, but does this program the fob as well? I'm a little confused, I thought this was a two step process. Are the transponder chip and the key fob related? I haven't had the key cut yet so I was just focused on the buttons for now. What am I missing?

Thanks
Wes
