No you will need the key with the chip in it or the truck will not run. The key has a transmitter in it and when you put it in the ignition it sends a freqwency out and that is how the truck starts or dosent get stolen if ya dont got the key.

How can I program a key fob

GRAND PRIX KEY FOB PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS Transmitter Programming No Tools Required In the event that a transmitter is lost, program the old and the new transmitters into the memory of the remote control door lock receiver.Up to 4 transmitters may be programmed Important Once the keyless entry receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information. You must then program all of the transmitters Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If you program multiple receivers simultaneously, the same transmitter could possibly be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver

I need to program remote entry/starter fob?

GM did not provide a way to do this without a Tech II scanner but here is the process if you have a scanner available.

Important: All transmitters that are to be recognized by the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) must be programmed in a single programming sequence. If the system is placed in program mode, all previously programmed transmitters will be erased upon receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter.
Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed. Do not operate or program the transmitters in the vicinity of other vehicles that are in the keyless entry program mode. This prevents the programming of the transmitters to the incorrect vehicle. The order in which the transmitters are programmed is important. The first transmitter programmed will be transmitter #1, and the second transmitter programmed will be transmitter #2. Use care to program the transmitters correctly.

The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed. All doors must be closed to perform this function.

  1. Install CANDI module.
  2. Install a scan tool.
  3. Turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF.
  4. With the scan tool, select Vehicle Control Systems.
  5. Select Computer/Integrating Systems.
  6. Select the proper engine size.
  7. Select Module Setup.
  8. Select Body Control Module (BCM).
  9. Select Program Key Fobs.
  10. Follow scan tool on screen instructions.
  11. Remove the scan tool.
  12. Exit the vehicle. Attempt to lock/unlock the doors to verify the programming.
  13. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.

No signal

If what you mean by this is the Red Light that comes on saying NO SIGNAL... that's your transmitter. In a 96, it's common to have a transmitter unit to your engine. If you have no signal it's either one of two problems with the transmitter: Either the Transmitter module under the hood, or the transmitter in your key. The 90s Explorers have a square end key that has a special chip in it. You might just need a new key. AND no you can't just have one cut. But if you have a spare key with the chip, and that one works, then just get another key to "match code program" the key. If that's it and it simply just doesn't work, then you need a transmitter. I had a 98 that did the same, but my problem was the relay under the hood. Sometimes it may just be that simple: a bad relay in the main fuse box. Doesn't hurt to check.

If it's the transmitter, it gets pricey because you have to have it fully programmed. Price compare with local shops. A dealership will charge an arm and a leg just on labor. Unfortunately if you don't have a spare key that works on the ignition, then you WILL have to have a diagnostic done.

This solution is only in regards to that light. But there are also other problems such as needing spark plugs. The 96 over time needs the upgraded Iridium Spark Plugs by Bosch. DON'T GO CHEAP. They will blow fast. One problem if left unresolved can cause problems. So really, I recommend you get the electronic diagnostic done, however like I said, most often it has to do with the transmitter.

Good luck!

Keyless remote wont work

try to reprogram the remotes using these instructions..........
i assume for 02 explorer not th 05 frestyle listed (although similar procedure)
Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered and key code programming is not active.
  1. Open the door, then press the driver door lock control switch UNLOCK button.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to ON 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in ON. If the program mode is sucessfully entered the doors will lock and unlock to confirm.
  1. Press any button on a remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock all doors to confirm that the remote transmitter is programmed. All remote transmitters must be programmed within 20 seconds of each other. Up to four remote transmitters can be programmed to the vehicles security module each time programming mode is entered.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Late Build or Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Early Build in this section.
  1. NOTE: Exiting is acknowledged by locking and unlocking the doors if at least one remote transmitter has been programmed.
    Exiting the programming mode is accomplished if one of the following has occurred:
    • The key transitions to OFF.
    • 20 seconds have passed since entering programming mode or since the last remote transmitter was programmed.
    • Four remote transmitters have been programmed.

Ford explorer v6 ohv 1995 VIN 1FMDU34X2SUA16318

problem is nobody can fix this issue for you your vehicle needs to have the key/computer programmed so the vehicle will start.

the security system thinks that you are using the wrong key to start the vehicle.
there is how ever a quick solution if you have other keys on your key ring, remove them as they may be interfering with the signal.
if it still does not start you however will need to find a dealership to fix your issue as ford is the only one that can program keys/computer.
