1. make sure battery is inserted correctly.
2. Do you have 2 remotes? Are they both exhibiting short range? Maybe bad remote if 1 is OK and the other is not.
3. Try this to extend range: hold remote under your chin and touching your chin while pressing the button. Your head acts as an antenna to extend the range.

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

Key fob


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.

Will not unlock with key fob, have replaced batteries


this usually happens when the battery has been disconnected from the vehicle, what happens is when the battery is disconnected the locking system fitted to the car has a pass-code that only the key-fob can access, as a result of the battery being removed the pass-code for the locking system on the car resets and does not recognise the fob being used. Your best chance to get this sorted is to take it into your local garage/dealer and get the fob linked back up to the cars locking system.

2005 Murano windows open by themselves


I had that happen too and found out that if you hold the unlock button down on your FOB for about 4-5 seconds then it will roll down the front windows. It's actually a feature, not a problem. You may have accidentally mashed something up against the FOB while it was in your pocket and you were within range of the car. That's what I did. Freaked me out the first time I walked out in the driveway and both front windows were down and I know I didn't leave them open.

Key fob remote start issues


You need to get one that works on the same wide range frequency as the reciever in the car, and then it's a simple matter of opening both the new and old fobs, and matching the fine frequency settings by putting the little switches inside where they should be according to the old fob's switches. If there are no switches in the old fob, it's preset and there's not much you can do about it.
