How to Program a Ford Key Fob

Ford Edge Key Fob

Did you have to replace the keys to your Ford vehicle and now need to know how to program Ford key fobs? Don Johnson Motors would be glad to show you how. Many new Ford vehicles come with a remote key fob for easier vehicle access. If your car has keyless entry, it is quick and simple to program an additional key fob. All you need to do is follow the steps below.

Step-by-Step Programming Instructions

  1. Make sure all of the doors are closed, then open up the driver-side door. Press the UNLOCK button on the driver-side door.
  2. Next, turn the ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times. This step needs to be done within 10 seconds. You should make sure that you end on RUN. The doors will lock and unlock, indicating that you are in programming mode. (Note: If the doors don’t cycle, turn the key faster. Your car may not have keyless entry if you still can’t get the doors locks to cycle.)
  3. Within 8 seconds, you will have to press any button on the Ford remote. The door locks will cycle again to confirm the keyless entry remote is programmed and ready to use.
  4. If you have another key fob that you need to program, press any button on the remote within 8 seconds to cycle the door locks. Do this step for each key fob you want to program.
  5. The last step is to turn the car OFF. To show that programming is complete, the locks will once again cycle.
