Ford Key Fob Programming: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Close the car doors, then open the door of the driver side. Press the UNLOCK button on the driver-side door.
  2. Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times. This must be done within 10 seconds, and the 8th time must end on RUN. When you’ve entered programming mode, the door locks will lock and unlock.
