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?

I only have one remote, and yes it looks just like that.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 5 months 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.
