so if you have only 1 key, the dealer charges you $80 but if you have 2, you can do it yourself for free ?!
Yep. There's a process in your owner's manual for programming beyond two keys. It's pretty simple to follow. But you need two keys to start with. When you only have one key, a 2nd can not be programmed. What they have to do is hook up to the car, delete the programming from the first and then program both keys. That's why they hit you with an $80+ charge.

The way it was done for my '02 GT was to cut the new key, lay the old one on the counter, go to the car with the new key and the programming equipment, check cut of key in door, plug equipment into on obd ll port and set machine to program key while car switch is in the on position. 10 mins. later he went out and disconnected his equipment, tried the key, billed me $86 and gave me the two keys.
Same procedure on the 13 Explorer next to me but with a different programmer.

I wake up in the morning with nothing to do and by supper time, I have half of it done.
I think the reason you can't program a new key if you have only one programmed key is a security feature. It prevents a shady valet parking guy from making a key that will start your car.

"You can't rely on what's written on a piece of paper."--Ford Motor Company regional customer service representative regarding my car's production date as it appears on the Ford dealer's service invoices.
The newest ford keys have a different encryption than older Fords. I easily got a key copied at my local Ace Hardware for my '06 Mustang, but my '11 F250 only came with one key and I can't find anyone but the dealership who has the equipment to copy it. Those ******** want $300.
