I have a 2008 ford fusion along with 2002 ford taurus. Just for the testing purposes I was trying to program the taurus keyless remote into the fusion, and now the single keyless remote is working on both...

cycle your ignition 8 times on and off really fast then on the eight time you cycle the door locks should lock and unlock,then hit the lock and unlock button on your fob that should set it just for one car. if you try to reset the fusion key your dealer will charge you alot of money

How can i know if my ford taurus wagon 1996 has keyless entry or remote control from factory, when i bought it didn't come with it, but it has power lock

To figure out if you have factory keyless entry,place the key in the ignition and turn it foreward 5 times in 10 seconds. This means forward just till the dash lights come on, but do not start it. If the doors lock and then unlock, you've entered programming mode and you have a factory system. You'll need to get on line and purchase a factory remote, (I didn't see any on Ebay) and following this guude:

- Cycle ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. (this may take 8 times)
- All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode.
- Press any button on 1st transmitter.
- Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.
- Press any button on 2nd transmitter (up to 4 transmitters total possible).
- Turn ignition to OFF.
- Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Hope this helps.

Blows the fuse when i use the remote,can't lock/unlock doors/trunk. Interior trunk release wont work when fuse is blown,what is the problem?

if it blows as you press the remote, it must be one of the lock actuators.
If it does it only when you unlock the dirver's door, that would be the actuator to replace. It probably is shorted internally.

Remote not working, why

Sometimes they just stop working, idk why, sometimes the battery dies. Try this: lock the doors with the switch in the car - turn the from off to on without starting the car eight times ending in the on position - the locks should unlock then lock themselves - then press unlock on the remote - the lock should unlock - turn the key to off and remove then try the remote again. If nothing happened, replace the battery and try to program again. if that doesn't work, get a new remote.

Keyless entry remote

in most cases you have to take it to a dealer to have it programmed look in the owners manual to see if it tells you anything and if it doesn't you have to take it to a dealer to have it programmed
