  3. Get a quote: Request a quote for the key fob replacement and any additional services, such as programming the transponder chip or repairing the lock.

Tips for Maintaining Your Ford Transit Keys and Key Fobs

To avoid the need for frequent Ford Transit key replacements or repairs, it’s essential to maintain your keys and key fobs properly. Here are some tips to help you take care of your Ford Transit keys:

  1. Keep your keys clean: Dirt and debris can accumulate in the grooves of your keys, causing them to wear out or become less effective. Regularly clean your keys with a soft cloth to prevent this issue.
