Auto start install- how to tell if key fob is orginal or clone?

Asked by AlaskanGuy Jan 12, 2020 at 07:02 PM about the 2012 Ford Escape Limited FWD

Question type: Car Customization

I just purchased a used 2012 ford escape and would like to install a
plugnplaykits brand autostart in it. The description of the autostart product
says user must have "two original not clone or copies keys to program" or
else an additional programmer tool is required. My ford came with two Ford
branded key fobs but they look like different models. Is it possible they are
both originals or is the difference a guarantee one is a clone?
