Question about Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

My remote to my car is not unlocking my doors. I have changed the battery and confirmed with the remote tester that the remote works. Plus the car battery is new. I can unlock the door with my key, but the alarm goes off and I cant start my car due to the anti theft feature on it. Can someone please tell me how I can fix this. I AM BEGGING YOU!!!

Have you tried to reprogram the remotes to the car. To do this get in the car and shut the door. Now put the key in ignition and turn on and off back and forth till the doors lock. Once the doors are locked grab the remotes and push the lock and unlock buttons back and forth till the door lock start to operate or horn honks. When that is done the remotes should work with the car.

That is how you program the remotes on my wife's escape and my f150.

Remote door lock key fob will not unlock doors or trunk 2003 mercury grand marquis


There are some testers for the FOB on the parts counter of most major autoparts stores. This way you can find out if its the FOB or the car. Some cars have an Electronic menu which controls the Alarm chirps and response to the FOB. What can happen is a Oil change Tech can erase the wrong setting for the oil change interval and disrupt the settings for other things.

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Remotes not working. door locks works in side but not with remote. batterys ok and they are transmiting. just stop work one day.


If you know for sure that the transmitters are transmitting (tested on a key fob tester), and the remotes are the correct ones for your vehicle (haven't been recently replaced with a different part number), then you may need to simply re-synchronize your transmitters to the vehicle. This is different than reprogramming the transmitters, but uses the same method on the remotes.
To resynchronize, Stand within 5 feet of the car, with the remotes. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the REMOTE for about 7-10 seconds. If the transmitter was out of sync with the car, the horn will chirp to confirm it is now synchronized. If this method does not work, then the transmitters will have to be programmed to the vehicle, which requires a scan tool to do. Good luck :)

2001 Mercury Villager keyless remote is malfunctioning


Keyless Entry
The keyless entry system consists of the following:
  • smart entry control(SEC)/timer module
  • keyless entry remote transmitters
  • power door lock actuators
  • body side door power door lock actuator
  • liftgate actuator
  • power door lock switches
  • door ajar switches
  • Principles of Operation
    All doors can be locked at once by turning the door key lock switch to the locked position. An individual door can be unlocked by moving the door key lock switch to the unlocked position and turning it again within five seconds; all the doors (including the liftgate) will unlock.
    The smart lock system is designed to keep the driver from locking his keys in the car. It will lock and then unlock all the doors if the smart entry control(SEC)/timer module detects the following conditions:
    • The ignition key still in the ignition.
    • A front door is open.
    • A door lock switch has been pushed to the lock position.
    The panic feature has a duration of 30 seconds from the last time the PANIC button is pressed. When locking the doors from the remote transmitter, the horn chirp/lamp flash feature can be disabled or enabled by holding the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for two seconds. The hazards will flash three times to confirm that the feature has be enabled or disabled.
The control module probably see's an input that shouldn't be there . lock Switch , door ajar etc... Don't think it has anything to do with the remote . Some part stores have a tester to see if signal from the remote is working . Or the dealer ! Take it an see if your remote is sending a signal without you pressing any buttons .
If it is you need a new one .

I changed battery in remote keypad and now i can't get into the car. Already tried hold the lock and unlock on the keypad down for 15 seconds and still didn't work.


Remote Key FOB Information
Transmitter Programming
1. Close all the vehicle doors.
2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Press and hold the door unlock switch.
4. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
5. Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
7. Repeat the previous step to program up to 4 transmitters.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter programming mode.
9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
If this does not work, you may need to have the dealer do it with a scan tool. Make sure you take all the remotes you want to use with the car if you have to go this route.

I change my key batery and now the engine wont start


Make sure the battery is in correctly first.
If so, manually unlock the car, start it, and let run for about 2 minutes. Shut off, then shut the doors, unlocked. Use the remote to "lock" the doors, then unlock.
If this does not work, I suggest contacting the dealership of purchase.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

I have a 1999 Subaru Impreza- Remote locking


First, it may seem obvious, but check the fuses associated with the remote unlock. Next, go to Autozone or somewhere like that where they have a remote tester. That will tell if the remote is functional. If the remote works and the fuses are good, see if you can find out how to program remotes to it. It may have forgotten the code for that remote.

2004 Nissan maxima Keyless Remote doesn't work to unlock / lock the doors


your battery is probably dead. Take the remote to Orielly auto parts and they have a tester that will tell you if the battery is dead. If the other buttons work on the remote then the remote itself is the problem and will need rplaced.

Keyless remote does not work after replacing batteries


I had the same problem and located the addendum to the owners manual. It's kind of overcomplicated it seems. Here is what it says:
1) Confirm all doors are closed and the key is out of the ignition.
2) Open the driver's door and put the key in the ignition within 10 seconds.
3) Remove the key within 10 seconds.
4) Push and release the driver's door switch 3 times within 20 seconds.
5) Insert the ingition key within 10 seconds.
6) remove the ignition key within 10 seconds
7) press and hold both "lock" and "unlock" on the transmitter for more than 5 seconds within 20 seconds of removing the key All doors will lock/unlock to confirm the process has been properly done.
8) Press "lock" or "unlock" on the transmitter within 5 seconds of completing step 7. All the doors will lock/unlock to confirm that the process was properly done.
At this point the transmitter has been properly programmed.

Of course, this didn't help me. My transmitter still does not work. I did confirm the procedure with a known good transmitter, so it is valid. If the lock/unlock does not happen in step 7, you more than likely have a bad transmitter.
