If you have both keys, you can program them yourself. I bought the switchblade type for the mustang, it was a bit+$ getting someone to cut it. Ford parts guy did it on the old duplicator machine for free.

They should. But it might depend on make and model, and if they know how to do it. Maybe call ahead and ask?

They most likely can't, either way, if you have two keys, you can program a third yourself, if not it is a heafty dealer price

Chipped keys do NOT have to go to the dealer. I have already talked with my local locksmith and they can do it for me. I need them to do it as I just bought my escape a week ago, and it only came with one key. Which is why I opted to get some ebay keys.

Correct me if I'm wrong but why do you need the other key? I do have two keys just not sure how programing the fob bought from eBay will do any good with having two keys.

So there are mix reviews, can a after market fob with the key be program to start the car if you bring all 3 keys in to the locksmith? Also was wondering if anybody bought a fob like this before for their escape? http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?nav=item.view&id=360453606781&alt=web

if you have both keys, your Escape can program your car. There is a process in the manual i believe that involves both keys, then insert the new aftermarket cut fob and the Escape flashes it.

the point of having two keys is to ensure that a theif who found a car key can copy it
