Keys cut a Walmart (3.80)
20 minutes time
Total invested $49.25
Thank you to this forum
ETA : I only did the add key function, didn't erase keys as a precaution, but now have three working keys.
It does have one key programmed that I don't hold, but since I bought from a dealer, not private party, and it was out of state, I find it HIGHLY unlikely that a) the original still exists b) as there are 5 explorers on my street alone (one of which looks exactly identical) that someone would be able to find mine a few hundred miles away. I should note that the FORscan software did give me a "warning", saying that PATS reported success but number of keys did not increment. Also said to turn key off/on then recheck the menu. Sure enough, the number had increased.You got really lucky at Walmart, total B* at mine refused to cut any keys that are not theirs. Got it done at Lowes instead, free.
You only need to erase when the number of keys programmed exceeds the number of keys you have in your possession.

@TechGuruEven if you have successfully programmed one key there must be at least two keys programmed to it for it to start.
Old post, but applicable for my troubles now. I have not successfully programmed one key. I had two keys which came with the car from Ford, suspected PCM trouble, installed another PCM, then reinstalled the OEM PCM, and then only one of the original Ford keys would work. What gives, and what should I do? Why did this happen? Any help greatly appreciated. imp
@Harpua216original key works? is the other store or internet bought? some of the keys have small batteries. what does forscan say when you try to program it?
