REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

NOTE:

  • All remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitters must be programmed at the same time.
  • Programming of the RKE transmitters can be accomplished using a diagnostic tool or by carrying out the following steps:
  1. The vehicle must be electronically unlocked before entering program mode using the RKE transmitter, RKE keypad (if equipped) or door lock control switch while the driver door is open.
  2. 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 the program mode, it locks and then unlocks all doors.
  3. Within 20 seconds , press any button on a 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
