Question about Banks 2000 Ford Excursion - 7.3L Power Stroke - Big Hoss Bundle

1 Answer

Why does my 2000 Ford Excursion's keyless entry not work after 12 PM? It works fine in the morning!!

So far, I've tried changing the batteries, even took it to a locksmith, who in trying to change the keyless remote on the fob could not get the car to go into programming mode. He eventually gave up. Shortly after, I accidentally hit the alert button and the horn started honking, which I could shut off by the remote. So I tried unlocking the door, and it worked! To this day, it still works, but ONLY IN THE MORNING! Does anyone have a clue as to what could be causing this odd behavior.

Hello Mark!

Fails at exactly 12PM? ?? I'm sure you mean at some random time, late and after dark...when it gets cold... Of course it's still cold in the morning, when the darn thing comes back to life.


Do any of your fobs work? Maybe they operate properly after a night in your nice, warm home, as opposed to hanging from your belt. Hey, I'm tryin' to help here??.

intermittent issues are the worst. Try an on-line Excursion users group to see if you suffer alone.

Also, how did you miss out on Cash-For-Clunkers? ??

All the best!

Testimonial: "I don't know that it is exactly 12 PM, I'm a K-12 teacher by profession. I live in Oregon, temperatures here run in the 50's most of the year - it's rare to even have a freezing day. What happens is this: I get ready for work, leave about 8:30 AM. Remote fob works fine on first try. Later in the day, when I'm ready to come home it will NOT work. Doesn't matter if its rain, shine, or whatever. This is really bizarre... I'm beginning to believe its haunted or something... :-)"

Sounds like they might have missed plugging the door harness in to the body, or maybe left a ground unhooked.

Remote keyless entry

I assume you are talking about the key fob. First, pry it open and change the battery. Watch which way the + goes.
If your key fob works, and the battery did not fix it, try reprogramming following the instrcutions in the owner manual. May need both fobs present at the same time.
Note; This is different than programming the anti-theft key.
