3D Group are proud to release our own brand of aftermarket Ford remote, the FOR3c. This product is the result of a whole years’ worth of development. The FOR3c fits into Silca (FOB3), OEM and our own 3D version of the horseshoe (FOB3c). We have developed this product to the highest standard; it is identical to the OEM version in that it features a Panasonic battery and rubber seal that holds a glass chip just like in the original.
The internal circuit board is also sealed into the remote just as in the OEM version as this stops the circuit board from moving and also stops noticeable tampering.
They are easy to fit and offer high levels of reliability backed up by a five year guarantee, giving you a trouble free installation.
