there will be a chip in the key to act as an immobiliser if i am correct.

you can reprgram other keys to the same code too.

are you intending to replace the ignition barrel and all door locks?

keep them in case your old/lost key turns up

what transit is it for yr

if it had the chip in u have to either have the master key which has a red top (plastic) then get a key made and u will have to get the chip programed by fords
if u dont have the master key it will workl out expansive the can make a key to fitt ur barrels but u would have to have the computer reprogramed to a new chip

that works for the remote control but not for the chip that has to be programmed

Its a 2004 model :)

I want to completely have a new key or code that works for the van so the old keys do not work anymore.

Not a gpod idea unless you have a plan worked out in the first place.

i.e. they will ask you to follow your tracks over the phone, where was the last time you had them, saw them, felt them etc, etc.

If it does not fall under thier insurance policy within your agreement then you have lost..!!

Strange but true.
