I should have mentioned FORSCAN software with extended liscense and an ELM327 adapter for PATS programming, but I don't know what your technical level is. You still need keys cut by a locksmith.

Yes, I meant the chipped key.

I got one from walmart a few years ago and it works perfectly.

It looks like the OEM Ford key is discontinued based on your as shown on this page https://www.fordpartsprime.com/oem/f...4z6b316aa.html . You will have to consult with a local locksmith or try searching on that page with your VIN and type in 'key' in the search bar.

So if this is a problem with a key, what will be the issue if we loose a key FOB for the 2017 year?

Per the instructions I read from the Ford dealer, yes. You need 2 KEYFOBS to program an additional KEYFOB

Maybe a name "key fob".
You need only 1, 2,3,or 4 max. As long as you have a working "key" you make your car accept a fob or fobs.
Fobs and "keys" unrelated.

I know they are unrelated, but its the only thing I can think to call these new keyless car FOBS. Car wont start with out it, and its still a FOB. So....

We've lost our master key and key fob. I'm defining key fob as the small thing with buttons for locking, trunk, and alarm. So we are down to just one master key (without a fob) and I have been researching all this, looking for a way to get a duplicate without going to the (st)ealer.

I found these instructions which I'm going to try. I've got an OBDII bluetooth dongle and laptop. I've ordered two blanks and two new fobs from ebay. I realize that I'll still need to get a locksmith to cut the blanks using our good key, but that's cheap. I'll let you know how it goes.

By the way, I think the lost key is here around the house somewhere, but until it turns up, I'm nervous about just having one.

this is sort of off topic. i have an '04 n i had a partially broken clicker. i was at davies ford in charleroi, pennsylvania. the parts shop had a knock off cover or case to put over the original clicker guts. man, now the trunk pops open all the dern time and one time up there i had an inch and a half of snow in the trunk.
guess i am saying, it might be a risk to get a clicker. i have taken mine off and just rough it with keys.
i know that doesn't really tell you about the key issue.
other than this clicker case spaz, davies ford was super awesome and they would tell you what to do, i reckon.

You can get the cases for them from the dealer, or from AutoZone. I have done this on a my Pontiac.
