How do I program the keyless fob for my 1997 F250 pickup truck?
I have acquired a used keyless fob for my 1997 Ford F250 pickup truck to replace one that was accidently run over and squashed. Can anyone tell me how to go about programming this used fob? Do I have to program my existing fob along with the "new" fob at the same time so they are both programmed to the same codes?

I had this problem on my exploder. From what I remember I located the keyless entry receiver underneath the drivers side dashboard there should be a box with the name SIEMENS on it. This is your keyless entry receiver. Unplug the unit for about 1 hour ( do not know why for an hour ) and plug back in after 1 hour. Should work fine after that.
To program the fob; close all doors, unlock with door switch, turn key from off to on (without starting car) 8 times, ending in the on pos, the locks should lock and unlock then press the lock button on the fob, turn the key back. That should do it, if you get nothing, replace the battery in the fob. The keypad code is only retrievable through a scan tool. The dealer will charge a half hour to do that even though it takes less than 5 mins.
