A local resident drove the car home and then misplaced the keys. They were referred to me after calling around various auto repair shops and even the Ford dealer. I was able to originate 2 new chip keys and program them to the vehicle. I also recovered the previously unknown keypad code for the door, and programmed a remote.

You might be interested to know that we don't need the VIN number to make a key. In fact, the manufacturers have severely restricted the access to key code from the VIN. We can get them if we need to, but the cost of the key code exceeds the cost of the labor to make the key "from thin air". Locksmiths have some magic tools that allow us to look inside a lock and using our knowledge of how the lock works, create a key "from scratch".
