      Didn't want to make a new thread since this is related, but does anyone know if you can use a 2017 Explorer Key Fob on a 2013? I have access to a 2017 and since my 2013 only came with one I'm hoping the dealership would be able to program it for me, but if not I want to get one ordered just in case.

      I'll call them in the morning, but figured Id ask here in the meantime. Thanks!

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      You will likely have to have the 2017 program info erased first. Does the 2017 key have the remote start option? If so, it is 902MHz. The 2013 would be 315MHz.

      Thanks Peter, I've been eyeing an Explorer Sport for awhile and finally found one I could pull the trigger on.

      Yes, it has the lock/unlock/remote start/liftgate buttons. Dont have it on me, but this was the one. It most likely wont work by the sounds of it though so I'll grab a new one for a 2013.

      Thank you Patrick, I was able to program keys 3 & 4 for my F250 using your procedure. (4 is the max you can have). All features work without issue.

      Ronin559’s post #37 can be accomplished a little easier. If you take the battery out, equivalent to having a dead battery in the key, you can place the key in the key slot that you used to program the new key with and you can start the vehicle. This allows you to keep a spare key in the vehicle without it transmitting any signals.

      Just a quick note that I successfully programmed a new IAK on my 2011 Explorer. I needed two working IAKs in order to do it. Took like 5 minutes. The Dealer told me that they had to do it and it would cost $122.50! I also saved money on the purchase of the IAK by buying it from carandtruckremotes.com The remote that arrived appears to be a genuine Ford OEM remote. The cost was $112 incl shipping as opposed to $180 from the dealer. Amazingly enough the instructions to do this came from a Ford sponsored support site. You can put in your year and model for your vehicle and it will tell you how to do it. The page is: How to program your Intelligent Access key

      Enjoy!
