Before you spend too much money..check the solder and.try this.
On the inside of the keyless remotes, there are rubber buttons, those rubbers buttons are brushed with metal of some sort so that it reacts with the motherboard, when the remotes get older this metal wears off...so try this, it worked for me...
I superglued foil paper to the back of the button (the parts that touches the motherboard when pressed) and replaced the batteries... it worked like a charm, I used an awl and a hammer to make perfectly round piece of foil and just glued it onto the back of the button... i'd try this first before spending any real money

2003 crown vic keyfob only works with ignition in run position .keyless entry and door locks work fine.even tried new keyfob.no change


The keyless entry system consists of the following components:
  • driver door module (DDM)
  • keyless entry transmitter
  • keyless entry keypad
The driver door module (DDM) receives inputs from the digital transmission range (TR) sensor, ignition switch, brake switch, window/door lock switches, lighting control module (LCM), keyless entry keypad switch and remote transmitter. The DDM outputs consists of keyless entry keypad switch illumination, power door lock actuators, luggage compartment release solenoid, horn relay, and lighting control module (LCM).
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses:
    • circuit breaker 7 (20A)
  • Central junction box (CJB)
    • 4 (10A)
    • 6 (15A)
    • 8 (25A)
    • 13 (5A)
  • Keyless entry keypad switch
  • Power door lock actuator
  • Luggage compartment release switch
  • Luggage compartment release solenoid
  • Connectors or connections
  • Wiring harness
  • If fuse's good have checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
  • B1526 Keyless Entry Circuit Short to Ground DDM Go To Pinpoint Test E . B1553 Decklid Release Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test B . B1751 Park/Neutral Switch Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test K . B2425 Remote Keyless Entry Out of Synchronization DDM Go To Pinpoint Test L Need a professional grade scan tool to check fro these codes . Not a code reader for OBD2 codes .
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter not programmed.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • DDM.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test F .

Did you program the new key fob ?

Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
  1. Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.
  1. NOTE: Failure to wait at least 20 seconds will cause programming failures. Wait at least 20 seconds after turning the key to OFF or after the last remote transmitter has been programmed to activate a remote transmitter for testing or verification

How do i program remote keyless entry? I replaced the battery and keyless entry quit working,


You don't normally program a keyless entry, that's done for you by the technicians that install that. If the replaced battery doesn't solve the problem, take the battery and the remote to the techies that installed it.

You can take it back to the dealer, and have them change the battery, or go to Autozone, buy the battery and do it yourself. They can show you how to do it. And which battery it takes. It's not hard to do. Good luck.
