SOURCE: I am programming the keyless

I don't know who told you you could programm the keyless remote yourself, you can't, you need a GM Tech 2 scanner to go in and progrmm the secutirty module. Here is the quote from the manual.

"There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote".

Is there a fuse for remote entry system on a 2000 taurus


There are fuse's for the module that controls the keyless entry . If fuse's were the problem you would have a lot more problems then just keyless entry . Have you tried replacing the battery in the key fob. There are also relay's , door unlock an door lock relays , located in the central junction box . Under the dash some place . There are controlled by the GEM - genaric electronic module . Ford's BCM - body control module .

  • AutoLamps
  • Rear Defrost

Keyless entry does not unlock doors, open trunk, or start vehicle (remote start built onto keyless entry). Battery is new in BOTH remotes and neither one works. Could a fuse in vehicle be bad? Secondly,...


RFA / MOD fuse 10amp . location - insturment panel fuse box. Fuse Block - I/P
Right side of the I/P, behind the access panel
If the fuse is good your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop , that doesn't mean the dealer . Lot of good independant repair shops around , just have to check the yellow pages.
Do you know what DTC'S are ? diagnostic trouble codes ! Not only the ones for the engine management system OBD 2 . There are also DTC'S for the remote keyless entry system , BCM - body control module. You need a factory or professional scan tool to view this codes
DTC B3101
DTC B3102
DTC B3103
DTC B3106

The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) communicates with the body control module (BCM) through the keyless entry serial data circuit. When any button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed, the transmitter sends a signal to the RCDLR. The RCDLR sends a lock, unlock, or panic alarm request to the BCM, depending on which button is pressed on the transmitter. The BCM receives the message and performs the appropriate function. The BCM also uses the keyless entry serial data circuit in order to communicate with the RCDLR when programming transmitters. Do you know what serial data circuits are ?

DTC B3101 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit Range/Performance
DTC B3102 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit Low
DTC B3103 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit High
DTC B3106 Keyless Entry Data Link Parity Error

This is what the factory manual said as to the location of power steering fluid reservoir ! Not much help , you would do better googling it.
The power steering fluid reservoir holds the power steering fluid and may be integral with the power steering pump or remotely located. The following locations are typical locations for the remote reservoir:
• Mounted to the front of the dash panel
• Mounted to the inner fender
• Mounted to a bracket on the engine

security module in the trunk ???? There is no security module in the trunk . What light's come on by them self ? Park lamps , headlamps , brake lamps ,turn signals etc.... The module for anti-theft is under the right hand side of the dash . The remote keyless entry module is located in the trunk. Is this the part you hear clicking in ?
Door Lock Control Processor, Electronic NOTE: The electronic door lock control system will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
The electronic door lock control processor:
  • is located on the LH side of the luggage compartment.
  • contains a radio receiver that receives a signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) through electronic door lock control processor antenna, and sends the appropriate command to the power door locks, the horn relay, the indicator flasher, or the anti-theft warning system.
  • is equipped with a battery backup which holds the programmed code in memory in the event the vehicle battery is disconnected.

Where is the bcm program fuse on a 2005 pontiac montana sv6


The BCM program fuse on a 2005 Montanna SV6 is called something different in the manual. It's called a “Keyless Entry Module” fuse and it is fuse #7. The fuse panel is located on the passenger side on the side of the dash. There is a cover with an indent hole in it to pull the fuse cover off. It's really hard to pull it off and it almost seems like your going to break it when your trying to get if off. Keep pulling, it will come off! On the fuse cover, fuse #7 is labeled " RFA MDLS" which is again different than what is in the manual. I followed the procedure to reprogram my "Key Fob" and within 45secs, I had reprogrammed my key FOB! I was so excited, because, I have been trying locate the BCM fuse for 4 weeks. I think GMC does not want us to know it’s location or name, so you would have to go into a dealership to get your Key Fobs reprogrammed costing about a $100 for a minute of work.

1. Keep the windows open as a safety measure, then,
2. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Remove the “RFA MDLS” (fuse #7 ,BCM PRGRM fuse, Keyless Entry fuse) from the fuse panel.
4. Close all of the doors.
5. Close the liftgate.
6. Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.
7. Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second.
8. Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.
9. Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
10. Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful programming.
11. Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.
12. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder
13. Install the “RFA MDLS” fuse ( fuse #7 ,BCM PRGRM fuse, Keyless Entry fuse) back into the fuse panel.
14. Press on the key fob functions (EG. Lock, Unlock) to verify correct operation.
