Remote Key FOB Information
Transmitter Programming
1. Close all the vehicle doors.
2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Press and hold the door unlock switch.
4. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
5. Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
7. Repeat the previous step to program up to 4 transmitters.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter programming mode.
9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
If this does not work, you may need to have the dealer do it with a scan tool. Make sure you take all the remotes you want to use with the car if you have to go this route.

Remote Transmitter Replacement (Wagon)
Use the following procedure when replacing one or both remote transmitters:
  1. Open the driver's door.
  2. Press and hold the driver's master door lock switch down in the UNLOCK position.
  3. Quickly insert and remove the key from the ignition switch five times, then insert the key the sixth time, and leave it in the ignition switch. (This routine must be done within 1O seconds.) All the doors will lock and unlock to indicate that the control unit is in the program mode.
  4. Press either button on the replacement transmitter. All the doors except the driver's door will lock and unlock to indicate that the control unit has accepted the transmitter into its memory. If either transmitter button is pressed again, all the doors will lock and unlock.
  5. To program a second transmitter, press either button on that transmitter. The doors should lock and unlock as described in step 4.
  6. Release the driver's master door lock switch.
  7. To exit the program mode, close the driver's door or remove the key from the ignition switch.

Got a 2003 mercury grand marquis which i bought and didnt come with a remote for the door locks. i have an extra remote from my 2003 ford expedition and need to know how to program it, any suggestions?


usually the truck and car fobs work on different signals. you can get inexpensive fobs on ebay, the car fob will have four buttons with a trunk release button.
once you have the correct fob, its pretty easy.
  • Just remember that you must also re-program your currently working remotes at this time also as if they are new since prior remotes are erased.
  • Max of 4 transmitters can be programmed.
Procedure:
  • Keep the driver's door open.
  • Electronically unlock the doors (Switch on door or working transmitter)
  • 2000-2006: Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN/ON 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. If the module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
  • Within 20 seconds, press any button on an transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each transmitter has been programmed. Repeat this step for each transmitter.
  • NOTE: If the door locks do not respond for any transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again.
  • To exit the programming mode:
    • Turn ignition to the OFF position.
    • Let the 20 seconds expire.
    • The maximum number of transmitters have been programmed.

I have a 98 GMC JIMMY. Remotes and Dome Lights stopped working. Car would start then immediately die. Took it to the dealer and they stated it was the Body Control Modual (BMC). Picked up the vehicle...


Keyless Entry System Circuit Description
The Power Door Locks/Remote Keyless Entry control system provides several functions. The driver operates the vehicle door locks and rear window release from outside the vehicle using a hand-held radio transmitter. The transmitter sends coded signals to the remote control door lock receiver. The remote control door lock receiver detects and decodes the signal from the transmitter. The remote control door lock receiver issues signals to the body control module (BCM) through a serial data link. The BCM actuates relays to lock and unlock the doors and liftgate. The BCM can also release the liftglass. The power door lock switches provide manual control of the door locks.


Transmitter Programming
Important: Different keyless entry systems are used on General Motors vehicles. The parts are not interchangeable even though the parts may appear to be similar. Observe the back of the transmitter in order to properly identify the system. On 1998 S/T pickups and utilities, use a transmitter identified with GM/UTA preceding the part number.
With the driver door closed, hold down the power unlock button on the door panel.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
Release the power unlock button on the door panel.
The remote control door lock receiver will respond in the following manner in order to indicate that the receiver is in the programming mode:
6.1. Locking the doors
6.2. Unlocking the doors
Important: All extra transmitters must be programmed at this time. When a new transmitter is programmed, it will deactivate the old transmitters.
Hold down the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter until the remote control door lock receiver will respond in the following manner:
7.1. Locking the doors.
7.2. Unlocking the doors.
Repeat step 7 for each additional transmitter.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming mode.

I just bought a keyless entry and now I need to program it. HOw did I do that?


Keep the windows open as a safety measure, then,

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

Close all of the doors.

Close the liftgate.

Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.

Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second.

Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.

Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.


Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.

Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

Transmitter Programming:

1)With the driver door closed, hold down the power unlock button on the door panel.
2)Turn the ignition switch to the ON position
3)Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
4)Turn the ignition switch to the ON position
5)Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
6)Release the power unlock button on the door panel.
The remote control door lock reciever will respond in the following manner in order to indicate that the receiver is in the programming mode:

6.1)Locking the doors
6.2)Unlocking the doors

IMPORTANT:
All extra transmitters must be programmed at this time. When a new transmitter is programmed it will deactivate the old transmitters.

7)Hold down the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter until the remote control door lock reciever will respond in the following manner:

7.1)Locking the doors
7.2)Unlocking the doors
Repeat step 7 for each additional transmitter
9) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming mode.

There... your little GM secret is finally known... Now can someone out there start posting these program codes for the rest of us! Hope this helps....

This is why it don't work. This is one you need a scan tool for. Stupid Idea. The procedures are different for each car, and model year, the one mitch supplied looks like the one for older silverado trucks, not sure though.


Transmitter Programming
A remote door lock receiver may have up to 4 different transmitters programmed. You may program a transmitter to more than 1 vehicle providing the remote keyless entry systems are similar. When reprogramming 1 transmitter, reprogram any and all other transmitters (maximum of 4 total per receiver) at the same time in order for the other transmitters to work.


Important
Leave a window down in the vehicle while reprogramming the remote control door lock receiver system. This procedure will avoid an unintentional lock out if the reprogramming is not performed properly.


Turn off the ignition.
Utilize a Tech 2 to program the remote door lock receiver.
Enter diagnostics (F0).
Enter body (F1); select the year (X) and body style (N).
Select "Remote Function Actuation" (F3).
Select "Special Functions" (F2).
Select "Program Transmitters" (F0).
Select the number of transmitters to program (1-4)
Follow the on-screen instructions; press continue, wait for the locks to cycle, hold the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for 15-30 seconds, the locks will cycle again.
Exit the vehicle. Attempt to lock/unlock the doors to verify the programming.
Perform the following steps if the above procedure does not program the transmitter.
Reconnect the Tech 2.
Enter service programming (F1).
Press the "REQUEST INFO" key.
Select "Reprogram Existing Module"
Exit the vehicle and remove the Tech 2.
Follow the existing procedure to reflash the body control module.

I have a 2001 Accord and if I hit the unlock button and do not open any door within a certain amount of time (2-5 minutes) it automatically re-locks it. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this...


Hi there,

Hope the following procedures helps.

TRANSMITTER TEST



NOTE:

If the doors unlock or lock with the transmitter, but the LED on the transmitter does not come on, the LED is faulty; replace the transmitter.

If any door is open, you cannot lock or unlock the door with the transmitter.

If you unlocked the doors with the transmitter, but do not open any of the doors within 30 seconds, the doors relock automatically. ?

The doors do not lock or unlock with the transmitter if the ignition key is inserted in the ignition switch.





1. Press the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times to reset the transmitter.

If the locks work, the transmitter is OK.

If the locks don't work, go to step 2.



2. Open the transmitter and check for water damage.

If you find any water damage, replace the transmitter.

If there is no water damage, go to step 3.

3. Replace the transmitter battery (A) with a new one, and try to lock and unlock the doors with the transmitter by pressing the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times.

If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

If the doors don't lock and unlock, go to step 4.



NOTE: The transmitters for LX models and EX models are different and are not interchangeable.



4. Reprogram the transmitter, then try to lock and unlock the doors (see Transmitter Programming ).

If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

If the doors don't lock and unlock, replace the transmitter.



TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

Storing transmitter codes:

The codes of up to three transmitters can be read into the keyless receiver unit memory. (If a fourth code is stored, the code which was input first will be erased.)



NOTE: It is important to maintain the time limits between the steps.



1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

2. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

3. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

4. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

5. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

6. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

7. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

8. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

9. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

10. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

11. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

12. Confirm you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button again.

13. Within 15 sec., aim the remaining transmitters at the keyless receiver unit (up to two additional ones) whose codes you want to store at the receiver, and press the transmitter lock or unlock buttons. Confirm that you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators after each transmitter code is stored.

14. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and pull out the key.

15. Confirm proper operation of the transmitters.

Cheers!
Ryan
