THANK YOU FORD for not putting a chip in keys. I had a 1994 Chebby that had one, and you always had to wait for the "beep" to start it. Caused nothing but grief everywhere, valets, oil change place, even the stealership

They only did it for the 1 year thankfully.

New to forum, hope this works.

I bought a 2000 excursion and it only had one key. I bought 3 keys on ebay for about 6 bucks a piece (strattec brand - supposed to be the ones that make the ford oem), and they were the PATS type. I went to walmart and they cut them, despite my insistence, they wouldn't accept any money for it since I didn't BUY anything (according to them - I won't look a gift horse in the mouth, though). I went to the dealer to program the PATS transponder, and they did it for free since they sold the car with only one key. So now I have four keys, and it cost less than 30 bucks total.

If you do have a PATS key, you can't program a new one yourself unless you have 2 keys already. It costs about $350 at the local dealership to make a key and program it normally, so if you can do it yourself (with 2 existing keys) it is a big savings.

I dont think the 01 trucks have chipped keys. It is fairly obvious if they do. The platic head of the key will be about a 1/4 thick. A normal key is only about 1/8 thick. If the key you have has a metal head (no black plastic) than just go get a duplicate just about anywhere. A locksmith will make you a better key than a hardware store. If the key looks warn (the cut of the key look rounded) take it to a locksmith shop and ask to have a code cut key made from the current key. They will read the cuts off the old key and make a code key (cut to factory specs). It would be like the key when you first bought the truck.

PATS stand for Passive, Anti, Theift, System. They are very complicated. Keys need to be programmed to run the vehichle. However, if you just want a spare key in case you get locked out than just get a basic duplicate. It will open all the doors and turn on the truck accessories (radio and what not) but wont start the truck.

Also, I have found that if you get locked out alot. Drill a hole through the head of your spare key and put it behind the license plate, using the top screw. Licence plate screws are almost always flat head so you can unsrcew them with a penny or something.

On my moms Ex the key doesnt look like mine. Im pretty sure that it has a chip or PATS whatever in it. I dont know if every EX has it but as stated above you might want to check out ebay or something and get them reprogrammed for you Ex. And Ford does put chips in the keys just not the real trucks until this year.
