Ford keys lost programming

Asked by Feb 03, 2019 at 09:17 AM about the 2012 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The dealership says both keys (they were both factory keys) became
defective. I had to buy two new keys and have them reprogrammed.  They
could offer no explanation as to why this happened. The keys were kept in
separate places.  Thanks and any ideas?

Two fobs becoming defective at the same time is as rare as a Lunar eclipse. Might happen, but really doubtful. Your truck probably had an electrical event, like a blown fuse or battery disconnect which caused the truck to lose the code to the fobs. The dealer possibly thought that if he had to reprogram two fobs, why not sell two.
