Hey all. Hoping to get some advice. I have to bring my 2017 F-Pace S in for it's 40,000+ mile check-in. When I bought it it only had one key-fob with it. That makes me nervous so I figured I'd swallow the bitter (expensive) pill and get another FOB when I go in.

The thing is the dealership (Appleton, WI) says they don't have any FOBs and they can't give me a date when they will get them (Covid related manufacturing, etc). When I asked if I could buy and bring in one I bought online (recos would be appreciated), they said it wouldn't worked because the VIN is attached to the key etc.

Is this BS? Anyone actually have done this?

Thanks again. You all are always so helpful!

I would spend the $80 and then take it to a locksmith who does programming. The dealers get a ridiculous amount for both the FOB and programming. You will need to sell your first born if you take it to the dealer.
