Reread the programing instructions. Below are the pages for programing. If the horn honks 4 times, it has returned to factory default mode. Restart the programing below.

I have been through the programming instructions several times........ The troubleshooting page says 4 beeps - TACH not programmed!
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Read the top of page 2.

NOTE: If the remote start fob button is held for

more than 3 seconds the system will chirp the horn

4 times, indicating the system has returned to

factory default settings. If this occurs return to step

1 of the programming section and reprogram the

remote start module.

There is no TACH programing for the 2010 Mercury Milan.

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.
