Assuming your vehicle has a receiver in it, take it a dealer and for a small fee they will teach your receiver to recognize the remote. there are several do it yourself ideas floating around if you google the problem, but there are also many horror stories about the unwanted side effects of not doing it correctly.

Your factory code is on a card in the owners manual. If that is lost, access the control module in the cargo area behind the left cover panel.

You MIGHT be able to see the code printed on it, or you might need to pull it out in order to see it.

Why not just get the factory PATS System working correctly. You can't remove the factory system,it's an integral part of you vehicles systems and processors

You can get new remotes and program them!!

How do i program the remote


cycle the key from on to off 8 times (on, off 1, on off 2, etc) ending in on. hit a button on all remotes that you want programed to the car as this procedure will erase all previously programed remote codes and so they will all need programmed.

Can't program Second remote to my Ford Explorer 99


Programming a key fob is all about timing. You are most likely doing everything correctly, just not in the correct time sequence. Keep at it, it might take you a dozen times, but you can get it. A tip is to do it as quickly as possible.

Here are the programming instructions:

*** THERE ARE 2 POSSIBLE PROGRAMMING PROCEDURES. ***Procedure #1Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
Note: Do not depress the brake pedal during procedure.
  1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  2. Within 20 seconds press any button on the first keyless remote to be programmed. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. If you only have one remote then skip to step 4.
  3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. Repeat step 3. For all other remotes.
  4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

    Procedure #2Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
  5. Fasten seat belts and close all doors.
  6. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 6 seconds, with the 4th time ending in RUN. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  7. Turn ignition to OFF. Acoustic signal will sound and system warning lamp will illuminate to confirm programming mode.
  8. Within 10 seconds, press and hold any button on the first keyless remote. Wait for acoustic sound and warning lamp to flash (confirming programming) then release button on remote. Wait 2 seconds but within 10 seconds repeat step 4. For all other remotes. If you only have one remote then continue to step 5.
  9. Turn ignition to Crank or wait 10 seconds to end programming mode.

Bonus Tip: You can save time and money purchasing a Ford Explorer Key Fob online from Keyless Entry Remote Inc.

Keyless remote wont work


try to reprogram the remotes using these instructions..........
i assume for 02 explorer not th 05 frestyle listed (although similar procedure)
Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered and key code programming is not active.
  1. Open the door, then press the driver door lock control switch UNLOCK button.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to ON 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in ON. If the program mode is sucessfully entered the doors will lock and unlock to confirm.
  1. Press any button on a remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock all doors to confirm that the remote transmitter is programmed. All remote transmitters must be programmed within 20 seconds of each other. Up to four remote transmitters can be programmed to the vehicles security module each time programming mode is entered.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Late Build or Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Early Build in this section.
  1. NOTE: Exiting is acknowledged by locking and unlocking the doors if at least one remote transmitter has been programmed.
    Exiting the programming mode is accomplished if one of the following has occurred:
    • The key transitions to OFF.
    • 20 seconds have passed since entering programming mode or since the last remote transmitter was programmed.
    • Four remote transmitters have been programmed.

Keyless remote


If u have the system here is how you program it this is from the owners guide.
1.. Turn ignition to RUN or ACC.
2. Momentarily jump pins in programming connector located in LR quarter panel area (Connector will not be plugged
into anything, it will have two pins inside it, if you have to unlug it you have the WRONG one. Not all vehicles
are set up from factory for keyless remotes) All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode.

3. Press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.
4. If programming a second keyless remote, press any button on second keyless remote.
Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

5. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode
