Sounds like a can of worms. The original key contains a chip that the security system is programmed too, if the replacement key does not have a chip the system won't have anything to reconise and go into shut down mode, if the replacement key has a chip the system will need to be reprogrammed to reconise that key. The big problem is that this can only be done at a Ford dealer, last time I checked it ran about 120 bucks, might be more now.
