This info would cost you £30.+ at ford Radio Frequency Programming Instructions:

  • Insert the ignition key and turn from position II (Ignition) to position 0 (All off) and back four times within three seconds.
  • Remove the ignition key. The locking control system is now in "learn mode" for the next 20 seconds and the red warning system LED (By the clock) stays on continuously to indicate this.
  • During the 20 seconds press one of the transmitter buttons. The remotes signal and code number is learned by the locking module and is indicated by flashing the warning system LED.
  • Wait until learn mode times out (20 seconds) or switch the ignition back to ON.nfrared Programming Instructions:
  • Put your key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (Radio). After approximately 10 seconds the red alarm control LED (next to the clock) should illuminate. As soon as it comes on remove the key from the ignition - the LED should remain lit.
  • Point the remote's "eye" at one of the front door sensors and press the rear button until the light on the transmitter illuminates (Keep the button pressed)
  • With the rear button held in press the front button 4 times then release both at the same time. The control lights in both clock and fob will flash 4 times to indicate programming complete.
  • Turn the ignition back on to exit programming mode

If it is a key fob that is integrated in the key, just place the key in start position in the car, and push close and open. The RF connection will be reinitialized.

Changed fob battery but immobillisor won`t switch off. I usually press the unlock button on key fob with key in ignition


Car electronics can be very tricky sometimes. Changing the battery in your remote should not cause any need to reprogram your key or remote. I have a trick for you to try:

The old car battery reset trick
I know this sounds absurd, but it works sometimes and is worth trying. If you exhausted all of the options above, disconnect bot terminals on your car battery for 10 minutes. Then reconnect them and try your key fob. This has worked for many people and I have no idea why. If you do, please comment below to explain.

Hopefully this helps out, you would be surprised how many electrical issues this little trick will fix on any vehicle.

If it doesn't work I would suggest what others have suggested in this forum, which is reprogram the key and remote. You can find key and remote programming instructions here:

Sounds as if the key remote had one of its buttons stuck down.this happen to me when a girlfriend used her nail to press the remote and the rubber flap got pushed inside the fob and kept the remote sending signals.unfortunately you can't just swap out batteries as most key fobs have to be reprogrammed.if you use the dealership that your make is serviced by it is better to ask how much they charge as sometimes independent auto locksmiths can reprogram key fobs cheaper.

Ford focus key fob not working


The good news is that you are going to most likely be able to fix this program with your 2001 Ford Focus Key Fob. Follow the steps below and you should be able to get it working again:

1) Change the battery
Batteries don't last forever, you'll be surprised how often it's just a dead battery! Click here for a video on how to open a GM key fob, or search our YouTube channel on how to change a battery for your specific year, make, and model!

2) Wipe the board
The board inside your remote can get a lot more filthy than you think! When the board is dirty it can prohibit the contact to the circuit board when you push down on the button. Simply wiping the circuit board off can make your key fob like new again!

3) The old car battery reset trick
I know this sounds absurd, but it works sometimes and is worth trying. If you exhausted all of the options above, disconnect bot terminals on your car battery for 10 minutes. Then reconnect them and try your key fob. This has worked for many people and I have no idea why. If you do, please comment below to explain.

4) Get it checked
Go to your local hardware store like AutoZone or Oreilly's. They usually have a RF frequency tester. This little gadget will let you know if your key fob is sending a signal. If it is, you may need to reprogram your key fob to your vehicle

5) Reprogram:
*** THERE ARE 2 POSSIBLE PROGRAMMING PROCEDURES. ***Procedure #1Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
Note: Do not depress the brake pedal during procedure.
  1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  2. Within 20 seconds press any button on the first keyless remote to be programmed. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. If you only have one remote then skip to step 4.
  3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. Repeat step 3. For all other remotes.
  4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

    Procedure #2Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.1Fasten seat belts and close all doors.
  5. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 6 seconds, with the 4th time ending in RUN. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  6. Turn ignition to OFF. Acoustic signal will sound and system warning lamp will illuminate to confirm programming mode.
  7. Within 10 seconds, press and hold any button on the first keyless remote. Wait for acoustic sound and warning lamp to flash (confirming programming) then release button on remote. Wait 2 seconds but within 10 seconds repeat step 4. For all other remotes. If you only have one remote then continue to step 5.
  8. Turn ignition to Crank or wait 10 seconds to end programming mode.

6) Buy a new key fob and program it. Purchase one online at https://www.keylessentryremotefob.com/Ford-Focus-Remotes-and-Keys-s/3244.htm

Central locking not working on 2002 ford focus changed battery in fob cant find fuse 63


The key and car might need re-synchronising after changing the battery or pressing the buttons too many times when out of range.

Put the key in the ignition and turn the key to position 2 and back four times within 6 seconds.
After a beep the car is in programming mode for the next 10 seconds.
Press any button on the remote fob to synchronising.

MY DODGE RAM HAS A FACTORY INSTALLED REMOTE START BUT THE REMOTE STOPED WORKING I CHANGED THE BATTERY BUT STILL DOES NOT WORK ANY DEAS WHY


Oreilly Automotive stores have a little device the picks up a signal from a remote. Maybe your local parts store will have one. This will verify that your key F.O.B. is working. After that....fuses or possibly a frequency switch in the key FOB got bumped when you changed batteries. Otherwise, catastrophic failure....sorry.
