Question about 1998 Mercury Sable

Open Question

I am locked out of my 1998 mercury sable. The keys will not unlock any of the doors but I can get in trunk.

Keyless entry does not work for doors. Was able to open trunk with key and keyless, but seemed weak. I believe battery may be dead, but cant get into battery until into car.

SOURCE: keyless door pads

most dealerships use the zip code for your area to open all keyless entry cars if you bought it from a dealer--if you did buy it new you can ask the dealer to run an oasis on the truck & maybe get the code that way

SOURCE: program remote keyless entry

1) Turn key from OFF to ON eight times within 10 seconds ending in the ON position.

2) After doors lock then unlock, press any button on the
remote being programmed.

3) The doors should lock/unlock to confirm programming.

4) Turn key to OFF and door locks should cycle one last time.

SOURCE: drivers door lock & key pad not working.

Your lock motivator on driver side front is bad, replace, it should be cheap and easy to do. Goto dealer for part. It's the part that is connected to a rod that kicks back and forth to lock and unlock door.

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.

Why is the trunk popping open with a clicking sound mercury sable problems


I would get the remote checked at a parts store like Autozone. Could be trunk release button is stuck. Also try disconnecting the battery(neg terminal) and then see if trunk locks. The locks are made to work mechanically without electric. This way you would know if it is an electric problem or broken lock.

1999 Mercury Sable Keyless entry wont work


I only have the instructions. If it won't program you may have a problem in the module. In that case see the dealer for testing and diagnosis

. 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. 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.

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.

Car will not unlock.


To get inside the car .... Use the key in the lock cylinder, unlock the drivers door to get inside. You shouldn't have to reprogram the fob unless it or the keyless module was changed. There may be a blown fuse that supplies the keyless control module (check the owners manual for location). or wires that lead into the Drivers door may be damaged ... The keyless module is located inside the drivers door at the bottom behind the door panel ... do the unlock/lock and trunk release switches on the inside of the drivers door operate the locks and or trunk release? If so it is not the fuse ... and not the wires to it ... And it could be your BCM body control module, located in the dash board to right of your gas petal. Because the number entry keypad (code for that is on the inside of the right passenger trunk bracket arm) also doesn't work I assume it's not the key fobs themselves. Your 98 manual is correct for your car.

Door locks open by themselves randomly


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.
