Question about 2002 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

My battery died on my key remote for my 2002 Ford Expedition. I have replaced the battery, but apparently need to reprogram it. How do I do this?

    have you called a dealership? It seems strange that it would need reprogramming just after changing the battery. It might be a faulty unit.

It should work even after taken the battery out., but here is the process.
1. place key in ing.
2.turn from position 2(lock) to pos 3(off), cycle pos 3 to pos 4, 8 times within 10 secs. your 8th turn ending in pos 4. Doors should lock/unlock confirming the program mode is ready.
3. within 20 secs, program your fob by pressing any button on the fob. the doors will lock/unlock confirm it is programmed. If more than 20 sec pass before pressing the fob button, the step will have to be redone.

I had the same problem. you have two choices. 1-Go to an auto parts store and buy a new one, and then try to program it yourself. 2-Take your key fab to a Ford dealer and either have them reprogram the original or buy a new one. Sorry, but that's the only solution I have found.

The key fob battery, the theft module , must be causing the problem.The car not getting open with key, may be key needs reprogramming.-------- There is a battery in a key fob, many a times battery gets weak or dead, causing the problem.But if battery in key fob is already replaced, then theft alarm needs to be reprogrammed by the dealer.The theft system is not letting the car to start.----------- Both key fob and theft module needs to be reprogrammed by the dealer.Its done by a reprogramming scanner.Not a error code scanned, but a reprogramming tool scanner.----------- That will only pin point the problem,if the theft module is got faulty or just needs reprogramming.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Replace the battery. If that does not work, you can re-program it with another remote if you have one. If this is the one and only remote you have, you probably will have to take it to the dealer to have it reprogrammed.
