Some possibilities

The power door locks may self-activate or cycle on some vehicles. This may be caused by a misadjusted front door lock linkage, excess solder in the front door power window switch, water infiltration of a potential open wire harness connector inside the front doors, wiring harness chafe on the door check strap, or a damaged Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) key fob.

I have a 1996 Mercury Sable 4 door. I cannot program my key less remote. I use to be able to use it until I had to get a new battery for it. I think that's when it stopped working.


I'm not 100% on this one but 99.9% sounds like the body control module was reset. The car would have to be brought to the dealer to SYNCH the BCM & security system. Possibly just SYNCH just
the remotes to the car. Good Luck, Frank M

96 sable wagon keyless entry


Try re-programing the system.
These are the instructions from the service manual.

. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, with the 5th time ending
in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle
to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will
cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Program keyless remote for 94 Grand Marquis


On this model you will have to open glove box and press the tabs on each side so that you can open it all the way open. You will see a 2 wire grey connector behind it.
Turn ignition switch to run postion then take a paper clip or something like that and momentarily short the 2 wires together.
The door locks should then cycle from lock to unlock.Remove the paper clip then press one of the buttons on each remote. When you press the button on the remote door locks should cycle again to confirm that it programed.Then when finished turn off the ignition switch and door locks should unlock to confirm you have exited programming mode.

2003 Mercury Sable, Driver's side remote keyless entry keypad not functioning


Doubt its a fuse. Most likely the key pad has failed and needs to be replaced. On the bright side this is a good problem to have and you have a very reliable car.
