The key fob for the central locking has stopped working.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Ive put a new battery in.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

05 115 T350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ive brought a new key fob and tried to reset using the ignition method but its not recognising the nes or the old fob.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is it the van sensor?

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

From what you have described if the old key and new key/remote will not work in your model and you have tried to program it but it will not program this sounds like a fault with the keyless entry receiver/body control ecu that receives the keyless entry signal and operates the keyless entry locks.I have seen this component fail in the past before needing replaced.

If you have not had your fault codes checked/read out at all this needs done with a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model that can read all computers.There should be at least one code set that would help to diagnose and repair this issue here.This will help to locate the faulty component needing repaired or replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
