Trying to figure out the best option for the inherited key situation I have with the new-to-me FFE 2017 I just got.
Key 1: in working order
Key 2: damaged by water. buttons do not work. however, placing it in center console DOES start the car.
Key 3: aftermarket, unprogrammed. unsure if it's the right thing or not.
What I just tried was to use the self-programming technique described in this forum and in the manual but it did not seem to work.
I thought that maybe the damaged key would still be usable for programming the 3rd key because it still works to start the car. Bad logic?
Could it just be that I have the wrong aftermarket key? Trying to figure out how to upload a photo and will do that once I figure it out.
Having spoken to local locksmiths, it sounds like they will charge me $90 to try to program a key, whether it works or not.
Anyone have any thoughts or knowledge on how best to proceed?
