I got a second one through the extended warranty. I immediately programmed a third key.

Curious what your source is on this. My phone has uwb and I'd pay something to be able to swap out existing PaaK hardware in the car with a uwb version...
I don't have a source saying when or if Ford will move to UWB, but that is the new standard for wireless digital car keys, so everyone will move to that eventually.

I can’t even get my dealer to bother ordering a second when I said I would pay. @Ford Motor Company is really screwing the pooch all around here
That's a dealer issue. I had my dealer order one. He said that Ford said they were backordered but suddenly it showed up 2 days later.

Is it a dealer or Ford initiative? I bought my second keyfob already :)
Same here, PAAK was so bad I couldn't rely on it. After using my Fordpass points, it still cost me almost $200 for the extra fob. I want a free 2nd fob regardless; it is ridiculous to only get one for the price of this car.

I've never had a problem with PAAK on our aviator. With pixel 3 XL and now Pixel 5a. I hope that continues on the mach e for me but reading it don't be sound good. I still always like 2 keys.

Same, love PAAK but still used FOB for valet because who wants to train a valet on all those codes they have to set up.

However the SSM just released is lawyer speak for "we know PAAK doesn't work reliably enough to only provide 1 fob, but fuck you if we only gave you 1 fob, we're too cheap to rectify this situation"

When I brought home my GT on Tuesday, it came with 2 fobs without me asking. Is this a feature of the GT or a change at Ford?

According to the other thread on SSM 50716, all Mach-E's built after July 6 include two fobs.

I ordered mine on 01-Oct and working with the dealer to get them to confirm the order. I asked the sales guy again, if he could check to see if the GT's due indeed come with two fobs. He first indicated no, but is checking with "the manager". I will continue to push on this but in the end, supect they will not really know unless they actually get a GT and have first hand knowledge. I am willing to order one, if I have to, but I do not want to have three key fobs. If I have to order, I hope to make a deal with them. If it comes with two, they keep it and refund my money.

You'll be fine.

Hi there,
Picked up my red MME last Friday. Loving every minute!
On Monday I got a call from the sales guy who managed the purchase. He told me to go and get my second keyfob!
The guys at the dealership told me that Ford sent the key because they know that PAAK is not good enough. I asked the guy if the keyfob needed to be programmed or if I had to pay for it. He said that it was included in the purchase and already programmed.
This is great, FordPass, kinda works for me but I could not set it up for my wife on her phone, Now she has her own key!

So I would suggest, if you didn't get 2 keyfobs, go and ask for your extra one at the dealership.
That's exactly what I am going to do. Thanks.

Does the MME have a locking glove box? I would think that the metal key should need to be cut so that it would open a locked glove box. Hence why i asked the question.
TIA
