Question about 2007 Ford C-MAX 1.6
Recently got a keyless entry/start C-max (58 reg) and it has been fine for a few days. Last night the fob struggled to lock the car so I used a normal key. This morning the fob wouldn't do anything so I got into the car with the normal key and I couldn't find a way to start the car without using the start button. The ignition has no key slot. I guess I will have to get the fob battery replaced but any advice on if there is a way to start the car in the mean time is useful. :)
Check your Owners Kit for a Owners ID Card is about all I can add. The Security system is suppose to read your chip in the FOB. All I can think of is to have the Keyless Entry Card in hand(inside Kit) while you touch the Start button.
Disconnecting the car battery will reset the Security or do any good, because your car wants a Signal from something. I am guessing Ford would have to give you something to substitute for a dead FOB.
If not, shame on Ford. They finally created a problem by getting too fancy and forgetting basic accessibility. You might try leaving the Key turned in the outside door and then pressing the Start button or entering the Keyless Code. Just don't forget to pull the keys out of the door if the engine starts.

SOURCE: My car is acting crazy!
the key on engine off 8 times. the doors will lock and unlock. push one
of the buttons on the key fob and the doors will lock and unlock. do
this for each remote that you have. when you are done turn the key off.
the door locks will lock and unlock. the remote fob should work after

SOURCE: keyless key pad entry code
Ford cars and such will put a sticker on the hinge or back gate with the numbers on it.
It will just be a white sticker with black numbers. A five digit code.
God Bless Greg

cycle the key on and off I can't remember if its 6 or 8 times. the locks should cycle up and down then press any button on the fob the locks should cycle again then turn off key

SOURCE: locks not working properly
been there ------open up the rubber connector between the drivers door and the body [by the door hinges ] the wires break from flexing. just solder or **** connector them back together. it helps to add some wire to one of the broken ends to make it easier to connect . there may be more than 1 wire broken
