I am not a Ford expert but has she tried unlocking the car with the outside driver's door key cylinder? This works on most makes and models to disarm the alarm.

My keyless entry remote on 05 ford focus doesn't open and close doors anymore. The alarm work, light are flashing but the doors I have to do it manually with the key. Anybody has the same issue?

check remote battery if that doesn't work could be a fuse blown, the accuators are bad but if its doing both doors unlikely theyd both go bad at same time however some vehicles will not work on either if one of the 2 is bad that's me assuming you have a 2 door vehicle. same for 4 door but rear may work as front doors wont or all 4 could not work depends on vehicle. If its not accuator you could have a problem witht he alarm brain and for that take it to a stereo shop they do alarms and most places will check it for $25

Sounds like you have a gold remote start in your vehicle as that red light would have to be installed with the unit. If it is still installed but you just lost the remote that is ok. If you look underneath in the drivers foot area there should be a programming button for the module. It will be a little black button with 2 brown wires coming out the back of it. Press this button and it will disarm the system. If you still have the factory key fob hitting the unlock button should also disable it. I would recommend unplugging the module or going to a dealership and purchasing a new fob so this problem doesn't keep reoccuring. Good Luck and if this didn't help let me know, we'll see if we can figure it out for you.

Ford focus rs alarm trouble

if its a factory alarm you put the key in and quickly turn the key on and of i cant remember if its 8 or 9 times but the horn will chirp then you push the lock and unlock on the fob the locks should respond then turn key off and your done. note that if you have more than one fob you have to press lock and unlock on all of them before you turn the key off and i believe you only have about fifteen seconds to do so if not let me know i will look it up at work

I have a new shape ford focus (05)i cannot open the tailgate without useing the key fob ???????

does the hatch open with the trunk release in the car as it should since it sends an electronic signal just like the key fob. The cylinder for the trunk lock is most likely seized and if you want to replace.. you'll need to remove your trim for the trunk to access the locking assembly

Key fob stolen

it can be done but you will have to have a dealer do it. and they will probably just get you a new controller and 2 new fobs.
