Hello and Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your question today.

 

The procedure to do the remote is 8 times within 10 seconds, ending in the on position and the locks should lock and unlock. It is the off position to the on position, not accessory.

If that does not work, I believe you may have a bad Remote Theft Module.

Hi there

 

If your truck was built with remote fobs , then you are programing the remotes correct,, but sometimes the modules will go into a sleep mode and will not accept new remotes,, you have to wake them up and then they will work ,, try this ,, remove the negative battery cable from the battery for 60 min , and then put it back into place,, get into the truck and work the door locks a couple times with the door lock switch on the drivers door and then do your 8 times with the key ,, the door lock will jump up and down when you are in the mode to accept a remote and once you push any button on a remote the door locks will jump up and down again to confirm the remote is programed ...

 

if this does not work then your do have a problem with the system

 

tell me what you find we can go back and forth on this page

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
