fordFord keys come in different types. Ideally, they vary depending on the generation of the car. Early ford models, for instance, use car keys with red chip system. These keys have a transponder chip, which is actually made of clear glass and concealed in the key’s head. These keys got their name from their appearance; they have a small red square at the top right corner. Some Ford models also have a key whose heads are completely red. This is the master key utilized in the earlier 3 key red systems. Like early models, later ford models use a glass transponder blue chip system. Ford’s very latest car keys still have a blue corner but is equipped with a black carbon chip, which is more advanced.

Types of Ford Car Keys

The following are the most common types of ford car keys:

1. Ford Tibbe Key

Earlier ford models use a Ford Tibbe key. The Tibbe key is arguably the most common car keys used in ford models. It features a cylindrical-shaped blade with six notches in the tip. The notches are cut into four varied depths that are unique to the car and operate the lock. The Tibbe key is either a remote locking key or standard manual key. The remote locking key often has 3 buttons, although, some early models have a 2-button infrared remote. From 2007, the Ford transit has been using a blue remote key, which despite having similar looks to the older style black remote, can no longer be manually programmed. Ford models that use a Tibbe key are quick and extremely easy to replace; the car key replacement company can access the car within ten seconds and have a replacement key cut in just two minutes.

2. Ford HU101 Laser Key

ford-keyNewer ford models are operated with a HU101 blade profile key (laser key). The metal blade features a unique and innovative shape groove cut down on each side and is rectangular and flat. The key provided by the vehicle will be manual or remote locking. This laser key is secure and the car locks on these newer ford models are harder to pick. Sometimes, the car key replacement company has to remove the car lock to be able to cut a new key. The laser key is available in 2 categories; manual HU101 Ford key and ford remote key HU101.

3. Ford HU66 Laser Key

This type of ford key was originally used to operate the Ford Galaxy because it used to be a Volkswagen Sharon. But, after Ford took over, it made the Sharon its own, and today it’s operated with the HU101 key. Like the Tibbe key and HU101 ford key, the HU66 ford car key ensures advanced security. It’s one of the most secure and top performing keys used in ford models.

Love this company

I’m embarrassed to say this, but I’ve lost my car key and used this company twice. Both times they were able to get me my new key the same day called, and are always friendly and affordable. I’ll see you guys when I lose my key a third time!
