2007 Lincoln Town Car Limited-can't program garage door entry key

My mother just purchased a pre-owned 2007 Lincoln Town car and it didn't come with a manual. The dealership is trying to find us one. I've been trying to program her garage door entry buttons that are on the sun visor but they won't program. I have an Acura MDX and all you have to do is hold the garage door opener up to the button and hold down both garage door button and the garage door entry key button at the same time until the lights stop flashing and it's programmed. This doesn't seem to work on the Lincoln. Any suggestions?

    Hello All,
    I just purchased a 2003 mazda 6sport 3.0L. Next to the moonroof controls it has 3 black buttons (1, 2, C). I assumed that these were for some sort of garage/gate opener but I can not seem to find pictures or directions on how to program them anywhere. Does anybody know what these buttons are used for?

2007 Lincoln Town Car Limited-can't program garage - ani_caut.gif WARNING: A garage door opening system that cannot stop or reverse itself after detecting an object in its path does not meet current federal safety standards. To decrease the risk of serious injury or death, do not use the universal transmitter with a door opening system that lacks stop and reverse features as required by federal standards. This includes any garage door opening system manufactured before April 1, 1982.
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: During this procedure, the system that you are programming will be made to operate. Make sure that people or objects are clear of the garage door or gate being programmed.

  1. NOTE: If more than one button is pressed, priority will be given to the lowest numbered channel.
    Press and continuously hold the button for 20 seconds. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT will be displayed (X will be 1, 2 or 3) during this time.
  1. NOTE: If the channel being trained has not been previously trained, the channel will immediately enter training mode (no 20 second delay).
    After 20 seconds, the display will read CHANNEL X TRAINING to indicate training has started.
  1. Point the original garage door opener transmitter at the overhead console. Hold down the original transmitter's transmit button so the overhead console can learn the original transmitter's frequency and data stream.

  1. NOTE: Additional training may be required for rolling code equipped devices. For additional information, refer to Rolling Code Programming in this section.
    Release the channel X button. Training is complete.
Rolling Code Programming
NOTE: To train a garage door opener (or other rolling code-equipped devices) with the rolling code feature, follow these instructions after completing the learn mode.

  1. Press and release the learn or smart button on the garage door motor head unit.
  1. NOTE: Following the previous step, there are 30 seconds in which to proceed.
    Press and release the programmed universal transmitter button. Press and release the universal transmitter button a second time to complete the training process. (some garage door openers may require this procedure to be done a third time to complete the training.)
Transmit Mode

  1. NOTE: If more than one button is pressed, priority will be given to the lowest numbered channel.
    Press the button. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT is displayed.
  1. The correct signal is transmitted to the device being controlled.
  1. Release the button.
Erase Mode

2. Press the 1/2 button

What would you do when your 1996 lincoln town car doors won't lock with the key. And the trunk won't open.

How can a lock not lock or unlock with a physical key? Maybe the cylinders are frozen? Try squirting a little oil into the locks.
1996 Town Cars have keys and keyless entry. The physical keys are two, an ignition key and a door key. You can't use the door key in the ignition, nor the ignition key in the door. They aren't interchangeable.
The default key code for keyless entry is posted on the right trunk hinge, inside the trunk.
