What a shame. I would agree with you to go and get a spare key immediately, if the new fords are doing this.
My key broke off in the hatch. Got it out but can't use it to program a new one with the other original. I don't understand why Ford would do such a thing. Having one good key is all you should need to program a new one.
Now a new key cost $25 for the key and $80 to have the dealer program it.

The problem is the thermostat housing, which is made of plastic, has a crack in it. It will leak once the system is hot and pressurized. I just put one in my car. $26.99 at advance auto. When replacing, do not over tighten and crack the new one.

not completely sure but that wire connects to the engine shut off ( which is by passengers right calf ) if it keeps coming off just use some red lock tight and if you still cannot get it to start the wire is broken from there to engine cut off or the engine cut off part is bad

okay after you replaced the starter did that take care of the key fob problem
the head light and whiper problem is probably in that hole mechanism ( easy fix )
the break switch problem is one of two things
it has come loose and needs adjustment or there is a lot of junk that has built on it and not letting the switch to go all the way down
