Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

My 2000 Ford Windstar Keyless entry remote stopped working (it was also the remote to open the passenger side door). I replaced the battery in the remote, but that did not solve the problem. Does it need to be reprogrammed, and if so, how?

    programming mode:

    Turn Ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds,

    with the 8th time ending in RUN.

    All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode.

    Within 20 seconds, press any button on remote
    transmitter. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. Turn
    ignition to OFF. Locks will cycle again to indicate end of programming
    mode.

    Programming

    NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters must be programmed at the
    same time.

    To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the RAP
    module, perform the following steps:

    1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered.

    2. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to RUN five times within ten seconds,
    ending in RUN. If the RAP module has successfully entered program mode, it will
    lock and then unlock all doors.

    3. Press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will
    lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has
    been programmed.

    4. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter,
    wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to
    respond, refer to Diagnosis and Testing in this section.

    5. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to five minutes
    after step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has
    been programmed (or reprogrammed), the RAP module will lock and unlock all doors
    one last time to confirm.

    Entry Code

    The system (permanent) entry code is located in three places:


    • on the owner's wallet code card (in glove compartment)

    • electronically accessible by requesting the
      remote anti-theft personality module KEYCODE PID on the New Generation
      Star (NGS) Tester

    • on the remote anti-theft personality module housing

    The remote anti-theft personality module is programmed at the factory
    with a five-digit entry code. A replacement remote anti-theft
    personality module includes replacement labels and a new owner's code
    card. To turn on the interior lamps and light all illuminated
    components:

    • press any button on the keyless entry keypad (14A626).

    To program a temporary access code:

    • Enter the permanent code on the keyless entry keypad.

    • Press button 1/2 within 5 seconds of last digit of permanent code. (This alerts system to accept temporary code.)

    • Enter alternate five-digit code. Do not exceed 5
      seconds between entering digits or between pressing the 1/2 key and
      entering the first digit.

I have a 2000 ford mustang. Suddenly my keyless entry remote stopped working. I replaced the battery and turned the off and on 8 times and the locks cycled. after which i pushed the unlock but nothing...


The keyless entry system is controlled by the (GEM) - generic electronic module .
Keyless Entry The electronic door lock system has two main components:
  • generic electronic module (GEM)(14B204)
  • keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601)
  • NOTE: Battery power and ground must be remove before disconnecting the GEM connectors to avoid setting false codes.
    Power Locks Operation The power locks feature allows the customer to lock and unlock the doors via momentary switches located on the driver and passenger door. When the GEM detects a momentary press of the driver or passenger lock button, the GEM will supply power to the driver or passenger lock actuators for approximately 250 ms from relays internal to the GEM. When the GEM detects a momentary press of the driver or passenger unlock button, the GEM will supply power to the driver or passenger unlock actuators for approximately 250 ms from relays internal to the GEM.
    Remote Keyless Entry Door Locks Operation The remote entry feature allows the customer to unlock the driver door, unlock all doors, and lock all doors using a valid remote transmitter as long as the ignition switch is not in RUN or START. The driver door is unlocked whenever the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter unlock transmission. All the doors are unlocked when the GEM detects a second valid remote transmitter unlock transmission within three seconds of the first transmission. All the doors are locked when the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter lock transmission. If the GEM detects a second valid remote transmitter lock transmission within three seconds of the first transmission, the doors will lock again, the horn will sound for 20 ms and the parking lamps will flash for 200 ms to indicate the doors are locked. If the GEM detects the driver or passenger door is ajar during the second lock transmission, the doors are locked again and the horn is sounded twice. If the GEM detects a valid remote transmitter lock transmission within three seconds of detecting a valid remote transmitter unlock transmission, the GEM will lock all the doors
    • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
    • Ignition switch.
    • GEM.
    • Remote transmitter.
    • Remote transmitter batteries.
    • GO to Pinpoint Test C .
    You followed the program instructions to the letter ? Programming -Keyless Entry Remote Transmitter NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) must be programmed at the same time.
    NOTE: All previous transmitter identification codes (TIC's) will be erased when programming mode is entered.
    NOTE: To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the generic electronic module (GEM)(14B204), perform the following steps.
    1. Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN eight times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. If the GEM has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and unlock all the doors.
    1. NOTE: The first TIC must be entered within 7.5 seconds of entering the program mode and additional TICs must be entered within 7.5 seconds of the first TIC. The programming mode is exited whenever the timing constraints are not met.
      Press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed.
    1. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait for several seconds and press the button again.
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to five minutes after step 1, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the GEM will lock and unlock all the doors one last time.
    1. Take an have the vehicle checked for DTC'S

Remote keyless entry


I assume you are talking about the key fob. First, pry it open and change the battery. Watch which way the + goes.
If your key fob works, and the battery did not fix it, try reprogramming following the instrcutions in the owner manual. May need both fobs present at the same time.
Note; This is different than programming the anti-theft key.

Keyless entry stopped working on 05 cobalt now i have to unlock door with the key and when i do that the alarm goes off. Help


Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
