The fib is probably worn out . You test it at most parts store's to see if it works all the time, if that is the problem you can more than likely get one on eBay for a good price. And you need to program it to your car for that go to YouTube.

SOURCE: The Fob on my 2001 Ford Explorer will not lock all doors

The problem is not with the FOB, it's within the vehicle. All the FOB does is send a signal to a modual and the modual sends signals to all the locks. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

2001 FORD TAURUS WONT START AND THEFT LIGHT IS BLINKING AND MAKING A CLICKING NOISE


If you have a alarm fob, press the door open button. If the fob isn't working, change the battery in it. If you don't have a fob...well...your troubles start there...need to have dealer reprogram a new fob and use it.

Mustang alarm


Ford sold a Ford branded alarm through the parts department. These sometimes were a dealer installed option on new cars. Mine would randomly stop responding to the remote and I would have the same symptoms as you describe. I had it removed and the original equipment factory system still worked. Be warned, if you have the Ford "accessory" alarm, your key fobs (remotes) are different and the method to program them is different from what you will read online. You can tell if you have the system by looking at your key fob. The standard Mustang key fob is a 4 button (lock, unlock, panic, and trunk). The accessory alarm uses a 3 button remote and clicking unlock twice would pop the trunk. I really wish I had a picture of the remote because there are 3 button Ford key fobs for cars without a trunk release although I don't think you should have one on a Mustang. Long story short, if you have the accessory alarm, you can solve your problem by having it removed but you will need new 4 button key fobs to remotely lock/unlock your doors

It might work if you disconnect your battery for 10 minutes to clear the old Code and then reconnect it before you try to program the new FOB.

My 99 jetta wont turn over out the blue...its not the battery AAA said it fully charged ..my locks wont work...the radio works but it wont turn over at all


Sounds like its the battery in the key fob, the door clicker thing, some times the fob battery will not reserve enough power in it to open the doors to prevent a lock out. I would start there as it is the cheapest route, if that does not fix it the next thing to try is the starter. as this will not hinder the locks I am confident that the Fob battery is the issue here.

Can I transfer my keyfob?


If you have key less entry on the 99, then it can be reprogrammed. Instructions are in the manual, or you can call a ford dealer. I don't want to give you an improper procedure and frustrate you. But it only takes about 30 seconds.
