    I recently purchased a 2013 Boss 302 that did not come with the TracKey. I purchsed the flash voucher from Levittown Ford and received it today. Silly me (I guess), but I thought I would be receiving the actual "RED KEY" along with the infomation voucher to take to a local dealership for the software update.

    I called Ford Racing and they told me I could go online to www.trackey.ford.com and order just the key. The tech I spoke to told me that under the FAQ section on that website that there would be instructions on how to order a replacement red key.

    For the life of me, I cannot find anything on Ford Racing's website about replacing the Red Key.

    Any help out there on how to go about actually getting the Red Key? I need to have the key with me at the dealer when I get my Boss flashed....

    Thank you!

    A dealership should be able to order a replacement key.

    I ordered one and it took a day to receive.

    Yes, your ford dealer can order it. If you have any problems, send me a PM and I can get one for you.

    BTW, there is nothing physically different between a Red Key and a Silver Key, other than the color of the emblem. If you have an unprogrammed silver key, it can be programmed to be the TracKey.

    I thought there was a different chip in it?

    The system uses Ford's MyKey technology

    I think I know the answer, but I'm not saying just in case I'm wrong

    I have purchased both a spare silver and a spare red key from my dealer

    Both keys come blank, will need to be cut and programmed

    However, according to my service tech, it appears that only one TracKey can be programmed at any given time (although we're not 100% certain, so I hope I'm not spreading bad information)

    Anyhow, each original owner should have been given 2 IKT's (integrated keyhead transmitters) one silver and one red

    Also, each original IKT should have come with an individual security tag listing the part number, FCC ID, and key cut information

    I purchased a second red key and had it programed. Unfortunately only one key can be programed at a time. The dealer gave me the key at no cost. Their mistake. It does function as a silver key only.
