Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Key fob doesn't work on remote

I've had a new battery in my spare key fob for my Focus (T Reg) and the mechanic went through the process to get it working and it did first time but now it won't. He fastened all seatbelts and turned the key back and forth in ignition 4 times in 6 seconds and waited for 2 beeps. Any ideas what else I could try?

How do you syncronize the ford courier key with the car for central locking


Hello Madonna Goulding

I'd would need to have the year of your FORD to be
sure on telling you how to proceed... but a battery change
should not affect the existing coding.

It sounds as though you are mixing your question about
KEYLESS entry (FOB)... and your
PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (PATS) KEYS.

For security purposes...
BOTH of your original keys must be present...

You can... and SHOULD have more than two keys
but you can NOT have LESS THAN two keys to
do any PROGRAMMING, ADDITIONS or modifications.

(FOBS or KEYs)...
YES... YOU DO HAVE A "FOB"... but yours is added to your KEY-TOP... treat it the same (I believe your manual refers to it as a keyless "REMOTE"
(attached key notwithstanding).

THIS is the design INTENT... to prevent
valets, garages... or ANY UNAUTHORIZED person from
creating UNAUTHORIZED SPARE KEYS.

The cloning process is in your OWNES MANUAL.

If you do not have TWO KEYS you MUST go to a
LOCKSMITH or a DEALERSHIP to REGAIN your TWO KEY
functionality...

2004 Grand Vitara. Warming the car this morning, locked it.Came back with remote and a key and the doors would not unlock.Engine was running with the other key in it. Had to have a locksmith break in. Why...


don't have 2 fobs?
it cam with 2,
and the battery must be good.(for buttons to work on fob)
never run any car with only 1 fob or one key.
or get locked out.
are you saying the metal cut key end (pure mechanical ) failed?

my car has a real key with a a transponder inside .
it can open 2 ways, the keyfob buttons, (takes a good battery)
and the key metal end.

get a spare fob and program it.

My cental locking on my focus 2000 reg does not work, i can only open the doors with key individually, also i cannot open my boot from inside, the boot light stays on as well as the light in the car saying...


programming of remote :- ( you will need all your remotes for this )
insert a programmed key into the ignition.
turn key to position 2 & back four times within 6 second.
when you turn the ignition off after the fourth turn you should hear a beep to tell you your in programming mode for the next 10 seconds.
press any button on your new remote ( a tone will be heard when the car accepts the button press ) now do the same with your old remotes too.
either switch the ignition back on or wait until the timer runs out on the programming mode & your done

My car doors wont lock. Everytime i click the door fob it is locking and unlocking immediatly.


Could be the battery in the key fob needs replacing. Also check that the battery inside the fob is not loose and making good contact on the battery contacts. You might need to bend the contacts out a little so the battery fits tighter in the fob. Could also be a sticking button the fob. You can dis-assemble the fob and make sure the button action on the fob pcb is good. Otherwise the fob might be defective or the cars reciever is defective. If you have a spare fob try using it to see if it changes. If you get the same results with the spare fob then I would point to a problem with the car's reciever.

Key fob wont work


the battery part just use a flat screwdriver, or if you are like my wife a butter knife, and pop off the back and go get a battery. You should not have to reprogram the remote. I just bought a 98 lincoln and the battery was dead in the remote also and all I did was replace the battery. hope this helps.
