My car's remote door lock/unlock is not working. Replaced the battery and "reprogrammed" per owner manual. still not working. sometimes sounds like it worked but no change to lock status. Should I buy new remote or take car Ford Ranger to dealer?
Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.
What method did you use to try and program the remote?
the owner manual has a section where you turn the key off to on eight times and the locks cycle. then you push any button on remote. locks then recycle to conform programming. all that happened but no work from remote.
Ok, it is tricky and you may or may not have done the procedure correctly.
First sitting in the car with all doors closed, Hit the unlock button on the door
Now turn the key from off position to the on position very quickly, Doing this in less than 10 secs.
On the last turn leave the key in the on position, The doors should unlock and lock telling you that you are in the programing mode
Then hit the unlock button on the remote.
Hope this explains it better as if you do not do it fast enough it wont work
