I recently purchased my 2004 SVT, and the previous owner had only one key , so I wanted to purchase a second key. I went to my local locks smith who programs and reprograms ignition keys. He was unable to to program the new key because he said 03 and 04 Focus's have a glitch that would not allow him to do it. Has anyone had similar issues with this? The lock smith said I would have to take it to a Ford dealer.

As it turns out the first locksmith that I went to is an idiot! Took the car to another locksmith and he had no problem reprogramming the new key. Also the first locksmith sold me the wrong key!

hehe sometimes the simple things get us all.. had that happen to me in other things...

i actually had a GEM key sent and it looked identicle to my pats key the pats key wore down by use i kind of cheated as i had the older oblong key that you can pull the pats module out so i just traded the modules and cut the key
