Key with fob for Connect

We just picked up our new Transit. It is supposed to have two keys with remote fob on key. The spare furnished did not work and now the dealer seems at a loss as to how to get a duplicate key. Is there a source for these? It needs to fit a 2011 model and have the remote on the key.

The dealer would be getting me another key cut. They can get them there just very expensive. sounds like they don't want to have to pay for it.

Transit key

I really think they have never replaced one before. They were saying they might have to go to Turkey. The van was in another dealer's stock and my dealer located it and traded for it but when they delivered it the second key was for a different van. The first dealer can't find the key.

I've been to several dealers to look at TC's over the last couple of years. None of them was able to replace a TC key on the spot, much less a remote control. All of them would have had to order a key from elsewhere in the USA. I don't know where spare remote controls come from.

Just FYI on the remote fobs, about any of the 99-on fobs work. I have one fob that's programmed to everybody in the family's Fords (about 8 ) and it works on my TC also. Not a solution for the key but an alternative to the remote.
