How To Do It!
Time Required:
10 seconds Tools Needed:

  • One of your keyless entry remotes Procedure:
    By default, the Focus Keyless Entry system requires you to press the unlock button twice to unlock all the doors, as the first press only unlocks the driver's side door. You can change this. 1) Stand within remote range of your car 2) Hold down both the lock and unlock buttons SIMULTANEOUSLY for about 5 seconds. The horn will chirp and lights will flash to signal that you have altered the setting. You can repeat this procedure to switch between "one press" mode and "two press" mode.

    A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

    All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


    this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

    Central locking


    turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.

    lock with key,electric door lock button,or remote and alarm will set. to disarm you have to use the key or remote to open it.the reason it woulnt disarm from drivers door is either the door lock cylinder switch is broken or the wire to it in the rubber boot that connects the door and the body is broken.
    the remotes are cheap and programing is easy,procedure in owners manuel something like lock drive door with elkect. lock switch with door open then push and hold unlock untill doors unlock then turn key off.you may have to fix that drive door lock cyl.switch first though mabee not dont know for sure
