    Welcome aboard! :salute:

    Did you follow the instructions in the owner's manual very carefully? Are you sure you have the correct remote? If you don't have an owner's manual, it can be downloaded here.

    Assuming you have the correct remote, here are the instructions for programming it. I apologize for the size, but I wanted you to be able to read it:

    Hope this helps out! :D:thumbsup:

    is starting from the on pos, to off to on 1 cycle or is, on to off 1 cycle ? in other words is 8 cycles 8 turns of the key or 16?

    It says that the car must be electronically unlocked, does this mean the car needed to be unlocked by the remote the last time it was used ? , the reason I bought a new remote is because my remote would lock but not unlock I had to start unlocking the car with the key,
    I am not taking it to ford , No, No , No, they will probably give me a bill for $700 or more ...........

    Edit; the above instructions differ from my manual , mine says turn fron lock 1 to on 3 and then cycle 8 times between lock 1 and on 3 finishing in the on pos , no mention of acc 2 in my owners manual

    My book says to go from 1 to 2 and it doesn't work, you have to cycle from 1 to 3.
