new key won't do it on it's own - you need a new ignition barrel with key chap - and trying to help actually

Re-coding the chip. Ford will rip you a new arsehole for that!

As for the ignition shiz... sounds like your old key was worn out.. should have gotten a new one cut and not used the red one at all!

So your new frozen key doesnt turn the ignition? and how did it get unfrozen? Left alone or heated up?

You could probably get a key cut yeah, but then if water ect got to the chip then you are kind of screwed unless you can take the chip out of the old black key and stick that in a new key or just tape it to the transponder on the ignition
