Important: All transmitters which are to be recognized by the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) must be programmed in a single programming sequence. If the system is placed in program mode, all previously programmed transmitters will be erased upon the receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter. Up to four transmitters may be programmed. Do not operate or program the transmitters in the vicinity of other vehicles that are in the keyless entry program mode. This prevents the programming of the transmitters to the incorrect vehicle. The order in which the transmitters are programmed is important. The first transmitter programmed will be transmitter #1, and the second transmitter programmed will be transmitter #2. The number on the transmitters are for reference only: #2 can be programmed as #1, or vice versa. Additional unnumbered transmitters are also available. Use care to program the transmitters correctly.
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Use the scan tool Remote Function Actuation Special Function: Program Key Fobs in order to place the remote control door lock receiver into Program Mode. The doors will lock and then unlock in order to confirm program mode.
Important: The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed.
Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock in order to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
Repeat the previous step in order to program up to 4 transmitters.
Remove the scan tool.
Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
Locate the programming connector located in the LH trunk. Trim may have to be pulled back to access programming connector. ( Connector has black/white wires leading up to it and it is not connected to anything.)
Walk out to the vehicle with a new battery in the key fob and press the lock AND unlock button at the same time while you stand close to the vehicle for 7 seconds. You will hear the doors go thru a lock and unlock cycle, your fob is now programmed. This will sync existing programmed controllers, security sync. to program new remotes:In the trunk, connected to the wireless remote controller (driver side on wheel well, need to remove 'mat') is an empty connector with 2 wires connected. short the two connector pins. The locks will all cycle. Press and hold lock/unlock buttons on remote until locks cycle on/off. repeat for other remotes. Remove short across connector pins. Test new remote(s).Warning:existing remotes are deprogrammed, only remotes programmed will work from now on.This worked on my 1998 Cavalier. Be sure battries in new remote(s) are good! Answer Locate the data link connector under the dash (under the steering column). Ground out pin #8 of the DLC (top right port) with a jumper wire to any piece of metal close by (I use the e brake hardware). The door locks will then lock & unlock to let you know you are in the programming mode. Simultaneously press & hold the lock & unlock button on one of the keyless entries until the locks cycle (this lets you know the transmitter has been programmed). Repeat this step for your second transmitter. You must reprogram the 2nd transmitter within 60 seconds of programming the 1st one or you have to start over. Note
possible bad button on key fob.unlock button good lock button bad .get a new clicker you can program it yourself ....put key in ignition turn back and forth 10 times while holding the unlock button on remote.that should work
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
Max of 4 transmitters can be programmed.
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.
Use this procedure for New Body Style. 1. Close all doors 2. Insert key into ignition 3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down until instructed to release in step 9. 4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession. 5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.) 6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position. 7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.) 8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position. 9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go, not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10. 10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds. 11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes). 12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode. 13. Test remote(s).
Hold down the unlock button on the door and while holding it down cycle the key on and off 3 times within 5 seconds and let off on the unlock button.The door locks will cycle to lock and unlock.After they cycle press the lock and unlock buttons on the fob til the door locks cycle.I f you have another fob push the lock and unlock on this one to program it.If you program one and not the other at the same time, only the one you programmed will work.Even if the other one worked before.Anytime you program a fob you have to program all the fobs you have.You can program up to 4 fobs.To get out of program mode just turn the key on and you will exit program mode.Check and make sure they work when your done after you exit program mode.Hope this helps.Good luck.
if it is a ford remote or ford factory alarm remote cycle the key from off to run(usually 8 times) untill you hear door locks activate. at this exact time key needs to be in the on position.touch unlock or lock on all remotes being programmed and make sure door locks respond to remotes. then turn key off ending programming mode.then try your fobs they should work
