Having problems with your 2000 Ford Focus ?

I just got a Focus myself with "special" key. Only came with one. You can't start car if key is not a transponder key. If yours was intermittantly working, I'd guess you now have a bad key.
\015\012You cannot make key yourself. You have to get dealer or locksmith to program it.
