Ford car keys explained
Earlier model Ford car keys use a red chip system. The transponder chip (which is what deactivates the immobilizer box of a car) is made from clear glass and concealed in the head of the key. It’s usually recognizable by the small red square on the top right corner of the key. A Ford key that has a completely red head is a master key, used in the earlier red key system. The red key was superseded by the Blue key that also has a glass transponder chip (which looks the same as the old red chip but is slightly more advanced). The blue key is not all blue – it has a small blue square on the top right corner of the key. The very latest Ford keys contain an even more advanced black carbon chip but retain the blue corner. It can be confusing, but if you know what type your Ford key is, it could make the provision of replacement Ford car keys an even speedier process for The Auto Locksmith San Jose.
Tibbe Key
The most common Ford car key is called a Tibbe key. With cars that use this key type, The Auto Locksmith San Jose uses a lock pick to gain entry to the vehicle. Once the lock is in the open position the pick will read the depths of the lock, supplying the information necessary to cut a key. Ford models using a Tibbe key are quick and easy to replace – The Auto Locksmith San Jose can gain entry into the vehicle within 10 seconds and have a replacement key cut within 2 minutes.
