Ummm does the remote have good batteries in it (sorry have to ask) most remotes need good power to send signals any distance and sometimes the signal will reflect off shiny surfaces and confuse the remote..are you shooting thru a window? thats fogged up? moisture will cause a drop in signal clarity(to includ the car windows and sheet metal as well. good luck and repost please..

The electric motor that pulls the lock button up and down has failed, you will need to pull the door panel to replace it. Yes it is fairly common.

SOURCE: Power locks won't work from remote

No you dont have to reprogram the remotes. Please give as much info as you can about the problem. What is working and not working. Is every other function working with the unit. Is this an after market autostart or OEM (from FORD) or is it one of the vehicle security systems?

I locked my keys in my 06 mercury mariner and i need to reset the code to my car, how can i reset the code?

You must have all remote entry transmitters (maximum of four) available before beginning this procedure. According with the Mariner Owners Manual check this procedure to reprogram the remote entry transmitters:

1. Ensure the vehicle is electronically unlocked.
2. Put the key in the ignition.
3. Turn the key from the 1 (LOCK) position to 3 (RUN).
4. Cycle eight times rapidly (within 10 seconds) between the 1 (LOCK) position and 3 (RUN).
Note: The eighth turn must end in the 3 (RUN) position.
5. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that the programming mode has been activated.
6. Within 20 seconds press any button on the remote entry transmitter.
Note: If more than 20 seconds have passed you will need to start the procedure over again.
7. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that this remote entry transmitter has been programmed.
8. Repeat Step 6 to program each additional remote entry transmitter.
9. Turn the ignition to the 1 (LOCK) position after you have finished programming all of the remote entry transmitters.
10. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that the programming mode has been exited.

Note: If all remote entry transmitters are not present during the programming procedure, the missing transmitters will not work with the vehicle following programming.

Hope helps.

Remote not working, why

Sometimes they just stop working, idk why, sometimes the battery dies. Try this: lock the doors with the switch in the car - turn the from off to on without starting the car eight times ending in the on position - the locks should unlock then lock themselves - then press unlock on the remote - the lock should unlock - turn the key to off and remove then try the remote again. If nothing happened, replace the battery and try to program again. if that doesn't work, get a new remote.

Program a remote key for 03 A6

I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.
