How to: Ford Modeo remote all key lost DIY
Ford Mondeo all key lost is troublesome for locksmith. I have a client who lost all his keys today. I worked out problem finally.
1. Find key code
2. Cut key blank
3. Generate remote key
4. Add remote
I cannot find my “centipede” lock tool ((HS Code & tariff for Ford mondeo and Jaguar open lock tool shape as centipede it will read key code quickly). So I had to go other way around.
I made two electric wires to open the car lock. First of all, I connect the wire to my own car’s battery and then convert Mondeo to negative ground. Then connect the positive pole to a wrapped line in the leather hose in the trunk. (see picture below marked read arrow)
Ravel out the wire strand and figure out the one needed (orange-and-black)
Open car trunk after power (If your client leaved the key on the car, there is a tie rod on the trunk, pull the tie rod and push the seat to enter into the car)
Then remove car lock. Personally, the trunk of the car is easily to disassemble.
Remove the lock body, write down the lock plate number one by one
Key code is 413 342
Then get the new key cut using Xhorse Condor XC-007 key cutting machine and Clamp 3 via key database.
My client requires to generate folding remote control key. Then I hooked up the VVDI key programmer to generate a remote.
The metal key head should not be too long, shorter in length than original key processed, otherwise the chip identification distance is too large to start the vehicle.
Identify chip and install it. Old Mondeo remote key uses use 4D-60 chip (4D-70 can also be replaced as well), only a few Mondeo manufactured in Taiwan use 4C chip (ID 4c glass tube chip).
Finished generating Mondeo remote with VVDI and well installed the remote, shown as picture:
The final step is to add remote manually.
There are several key programmer can be chosen to program remote for Mondeo, such as T300, MVP key programmer, KD900 remote maker etc. I am using MVP Pro, 10 minutes work. (If you need to reset the system, it requires 2-button Folding Remote Control Key, otherwise it will not start)
All roads lead to Rome. I am just saying what I did and achieved. You are on your own risk.
