I just purchased a 1996 Explorer Eddie Bauer edition.

If came with out the Entry Code or Transmitter.

I found the Entry code where it belongs.

I aquired a used transmitter from a ford dealer (used and at no cost)

I put my key in the ignition, turned the key on and off five times, locks cycled, I pressed any (and all) keys on the transmitter, nothing.

I replaced the batteries prior to starting the programing AND I have checked to make sure they are in the right way.

so....can anyone help me figure out what is going wrong.

Thanks

Post all of the information on the back of the remote. You may not have the correct one.

They should program the same and either remote work with both. Have you tried programming the 97 remote to the 96?

You have checked the fuses? (#12 20A in the under hood fuse box,#20 7.5A interior box)Check and be sure the remote antenna is plugged into the RAP module firmly. The RAP module is located on the left rear quarter panel behind the interior trim panel. That's about all you can do without a NGS tester.

Question, if the car is RAP module is telling me that it is in program mode, wouldn't the fuse be okay?

Looked at a diagram, what was listed as #12 on the truck is listed as #3 in the diagram, 50a Auto Ride Control System.
