the bottom set of keys could be from
(ignoring the key fob) ea 30th anniversary falcon onwards to au series 1.
those kewl keyfobs started coming out in eb2 falcons.
the top key (it is a transponder key) is from an au series 2 onwards falcon but the keyfob is not from those.
also those keys are used on other ford vehicles as well mate. ;)
any ideas?

Top one, the key is from an AU2+ falcon. Remote is probably from an AU1, only saying that because it has the boot release button, and I don't think e-series ones did, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong there guys.


The bottom one is hard to tell, key could be from any falcon before but not including AU2. And the remote is around the wrong way. Has it got one buttom or 2?


BTW, both of those remotes are smartlock remotes, as opposed to the smartshield ones the AU2 onwards had.

e series had the boot release mate, some e series also had different writing on them saying the Yankee saying TRUNK instead of boot. heh good thing that changed quickly.
that larger key as i said has a transponder in it, and are used on au2 up. and also on some transit vans etc.

Not so sure about that Glenn. Perhaps its a higher model one, but I own a '99 Forte, and I've got both the smartlock remote and a non-transponder key....

The updates came in like late may, and i'm quite certain smartshield requires a transponder key. Go read your rear passenger side window to see if its got a smartshield decal.

Smartshield does require a transponder key, but it wasn't part of the AU1 update. Ford introduced smartshield later in the year, I think it was about July from memory. Smartshield uses a different remote, the chunkier one.
