 [W4] If it's a Mk1 Galaxy that you've got as per your profile then all keys to my knowledge should have PATS (immobiliser) chips in them, however, possibly not all Mk1 Galaxies had remote locking fitted as standard therefore you may not have a remote key. You could always enter your registration number into Ford etis and look in the build features to see if it was equipped from the factory with remote locking?
