If this is Factory Ford Keyless Entry..TRY:Standing next to vehicle "Press & Hold" the Lock & Unlock Buttons "together" for apprx 10 secondsRelease Buttons & try remote
If the above does not work, you may need to Program Transmitters again, by following the procedure below or use of Dealer Scan tool to Master code
REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING
CAUTION: All remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitters must be programmed at the same time.
The vehicle must be electronically unlocked before entering program mode (via RKE, RKE keypad (if equipped) or door lock control switch while the driver door is open.
Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds , with the eighth turn ending in RUN. If the module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
Within 20 seconds , press any button on an RKE transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each RKE transmitter has been programmed.
Repeat this step for each RKE transmitter.
If the door locks do not respond for any RKE transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again.
If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Inspection and Verification.
Make sure that no more than the maximum number of RKE transmitters are attempted to be programmed.
Exiting the programming mode is accomplished if one of the following occurs:The key transitions to the OFF position. 20 seconds have passed since entering programming mode or since the last RKE transmitter was programmed. The maximum number of RKE transmitters have been programmed.

sorry for the delay
Does this mean to turn the engine over when you say run?
No, just turn the Key to ON, Off 8 times in 10 seconds......do not start vehicle
Sorry to keep bothering you, but I am thinking maybe I did not explain my issue properly. The keyless entry clicker on my keyring will lock and unlock the car. The issue I am having is that the keyless entry will not automatically open the liftgate, nor either side door on the vehicle. Also, once inside the car, there are buttons up top that will do the same thing. There is a button to push to open either side door and the liftgate as well. This is the issue ... the clicker locks or unlocks the car. The other buttons are not working to open the slide doors or back liftgate. The buttons inside the car on the roof of the vehicle are not working to do this either. Once the slide doors are unlocked and the doors are manually opened, I can close them with the automatic door button on the inside of the opening on each side. However, I can't do this with the remote nor with any of the buttons located on the roof of the car. I had no issues with any of this before the battery went out. I know it has to be something with resetting something inside the vehicle, but don't know how. Also, in the manual it says to take out and put back in the fuse on the passenger side, but I have yet to find a fuse box on the passenger side of the car. We have found the fuse box under the hood on the driver's side, but that is the only one I can locate.
The computer system in the car seems fine, as the outside temp reading, computerized odometer, fluid check, tire pressure, miles to go, etc is reading fine inside. I just need to find a way to get the auto doors on each side and the back liftgate to open with either the remote or with the buttons on the roof of the inside.
sorry if I didn't make that clear earlier. The remote locks and unlocks the car, but that is all it will do. Something else is going on, as the remote must be still programmed to get that to happen.
I have tried all steps you suggested, but I am wondering if I worded my original question properly. Sorry for the confusion ~ are there 2 fuse boxes on this vehicle and if so, where is the fuse box for the passenger side?
Again, I appreciate your help ~ I just hate to take this to the dealership to pay several hundred dollars when I am sure there is something I am overlooking.
Thank you for the added info.
You posted:the clicker will not automatically open the doors or liftgate
sorry for the misunderstanding, as I thought you were referring to ALL doors
If the isue is the side doors & liftgate, then programming is needed by Dealer Scan Tool for the power liftgate module & side door module
You could disconnect Positive Battery Cable for apprx 5 minutes & see if it resets
NOTE: The remote transmitter or B-pillar switches may be used in place of the overhead console open/close switches to initialize the power sliding doors.
NOTE: If the power liftgate system is turned OFF in the message center, the system cannot be activated with any switches or with the liftgate handle. The system will need to be turned ON for any power operation to occur.
NOTE: The power liftgate may not operate under the following conditions:
If any of these conditions has occurred, the power liftgate must be reset.
NOTE: If the power liftgate does not open during this step, refer to the symptom chart to diagnose the power liftgate for no operation.
sorry for the problems..............
while the above expert is correct about "Initialization", the problem you have sounds like a Programming issue & you need to have Dealer Scan vehicle for ALL Trouble Codes
There is also a Tech Bulletin for Trouble Code C1999, which fits this problem
Use of Dealer Scan Tool is needed to clear this & any other Body Trouble Code to program or test system
should be less than 1 hour labor
