That tai lite is more than most of us spent for our first whole car, if you are an old geezer.

The key is half the problem. The remote also needs programming

I am a safety manager at a car haul company and I over see claims...895 for a sealed unit sounds reasonable when all we do is European cars. $1700 for a sealed tail light, $2500 for a rim, it never ends!

The valet is standard key that you use the trucks onboard computer to setup the way you want it. Im not sure about other years mine is 2015.

When I comment on the cost he said that a guy was in this morning with crack tail light lens on 2015 F150 with blind spot warning system and the taillight is sealed unit and you have to replace the entire unit for a cost of 895.00 plus the computer will mostly likely take a reset. He said that was typical cost of most taillights that have the blind side warning system in the taillight (not the backup warning sensors they are in the bumper). You wonder why insurance is so high! What happen to the days that there was 4 screws and 50.00 cost of just a lens.

Amazon for the key and youtub for the programming. You will need to take the key to a locksmith to cut. Usually a few bucks.

If you are programing a PATS key with the buttons, the remote is automatically programed when the Pats portion of the key is programed on this truck. We sell the valet key for $8.00 and the standard PATS key for $65.00 CDN.
