I can't get the keyless remote to lock and unlock the doors

Customer Question

I can't get the keyless remote to lock and unlock the doors on my 2004 Exepdition. I put a new battery in it, so that should be good.
JA: Have you checked the fob's battery?
Customer: It is a brand new battery that I put into the remote.
JA: What is the model of your '04 Ford?
Customer: Expedition
JA: Are you fixing your Expedition yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I tried turning the key on and off several times, which I read about, but that did not seem to achieve anthing, like a pairing of the device.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

How many remotes do you have for the vehicle?
Does it look like the one below?

I only have one remote, and yes it looks just like that.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 days ago.

Below are the programing instructions. Follow them and see if the remote programs. If not, make sure you have the battery installed in the remote properly.
