    I purchased through eBay a replacement key for my 1998 Ford UP Explorer XT 4.0L V6 OHV. Took it to a local lock smith and had it cut, but they were unable to program it because apparently it is a genuine key. Took it to another locksmith that specialises in the electronic vehicle keys and they tell me that they don't program the key, but the program, the car, and I would need to leave them with the car for an hour and they can sort it out, no dramas.
    Anyone know if I can do this at home? I assume it's just a process of putting the car into some mode and then leaving it until the immobiliser times out and then it relearns (or something similar along these lines). Any ideas?

    Is it a key, or key fob. If a key fob, the owners manual explains how to program it.
