Town car keyless entry

I have a 1999 Lincoln Town car and the keyless entry has stopped working. I have purchased a new remote this Christmas when I lost the key and had to have a lock smith make me some new keys made he programed the remote. I noticed that shortly after the work was done that the trunk was difficult to unlock with the remote unless you were standing right in front of it with the remote. The problem worsened and spread to the doors and got to where unless you were right in front of drivers door the remote would not work. Now it has gotten to the point where the remote does not work at all. I have tried to get into the programming mode by turning the key off and on 4 times in 3 seconds but the system wont into the programing mode

Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done!

Good Luck.

ani_caut.gif WARNING: A garage door opening system that cannot stop or reverse itself after detecting an object in its path does not meet current federal safety standards. To decrease the risk of serious injury or death, do not use the universal transmitter with a door opening system that lacks stop and reverse features as required by federal standards. This includes any garage door opening system manufactured before April 1, 1982.
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: During this procedure, the system that you are programming will be made to operate. Make sure that people or objects are clear of the garage door or gate being programmed.

  1. Select a universal transmitter button to train.
  1. NOTE: If more than one button is pressed, priority will be given to the lowest numbered channel.
    Press and continuously hold the button for 20 seconds. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT will be displayed (X will be 1, 2 or 3) during this time.
  1. NOTE: If the channel being trained has not been previously trained, the channel will immediately enter training mode (no 20 second delay).
    After 20 seconds, the display will read CHANNEL X TRAINING to indicate training has started.
  1. Point the original garage door opener transmitter at the overhead console. Hold down the original transmitter's transmit button so the overhead console can learn the original transmitter's frequency and data stream.
  1. Training will be completed in 100 seconds or less. CHANNEL X TRAINED will be displayed when training is complete. DID NOT TRAIN will be displayed if the channel did not correctly train.
  1. NOTE: Additional training may be required for rolling code equipped devices. For additional information, refer to Rolling Code Programming in this section.
    Release the channel X button. Training is complete.
Rolling Code Programming
NOTE: To train a garage door opener (or other rolling code-equipped devices) with the rolling code feature, follow these instructions after completing the learn mode.
  1. Locate the learn or smart button on the garage door motor head unit. Exact location and color of the button may vary by product brand. If there is difficulty locating the learn or smart button, refer to the device's Owner's Literature.
  1. Press and release the learn or smart button on the garage door motor head unit.
  1. NOTE: Following the previous step, there are 30 seconds in which to proceed.
    Press and release the programmed universal transmitter button. Press and release the universal transmitter button a second time to complete the training process. (some garage door openers may require this procedure to be done a third time to complete the training.)
Transmit Mode
  1. Select the button for the desired channel (for example, for the garage door you wish to open).
  1. NOTE: If more than one button is pressed, priority will be given to the lowest numbered channel.
    Press the button. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT is displayed.
  1. The correct signal is transmitted to the device being controlled.
  1. Release the button.
Erase Mode
  1. Simultaneously press and hold buttons 1 and 3 for 20 seconds.
  1. CLEARING CHANNELS will be displayed while the channel codes are being erased.
  1. CHANNELS CLEARED will be displayed when the erase operation is complete.
  1. Release buttons 1 and 3.
Universal Transmitter Default Code Mode Loading
  1. Press and hold buttons 1 and 3 simultaneously. CLEARING CHANNELS is displayed.
  1. After 20 seconds, CHANNELS CLEARED is displayed. Continue to hold buttons.

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

How can i reprogram my 1995 lincoln town car keyless entry without the remote?


are you talking about door pad keys? If yes, the permanent code is on a plastic card in your owner manual folder and on the module. Your dealer also can retrieve with his scanner for about 1/2 hour labor.

Need to know how to recode the keyless lock system on the door


I have a 1988 Lincoln Mark VII but this still should work.

You first need to enter in the code you have. Then, within five seconds press the 1/2 button. Then, within five seconds of each other, press five buttons in any sequence you desire and this will be your new code. Hope this helps.
