Did you lose your keys and had to get a replacement made? You might be wondering how to program Ford key fob. It’s actually a very simple process to program your fob and get your back out onto the Conway road! Let’s take a closer look at Ford key fob programming with the Beach Ford service center. For more information, feel free to contact us anytime!

Step-by-Step Programming Instructions 

  1. Shut all car doors and then open the driver-side door. Then press the UNLOCK button on the driver-side door. 
  2. The next step is to flip the ignition from OFF to RUN exactly 8 times with a 10-second interval. The 8th time should always end on RUN. The vehicle will then enter programming mode, and the doors should lock and unlock. 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. Next, hit any button you want to program on your Ford key fob within 8 seconds of the doors locking and unlocking. When you’ve programed the button, the locks will go through their cycle again. Your fob is now ready! 
  4. If you have a spare key fob, just press any button on the remote within 8 seconds, and the door locks should then cycle. 
  5. Then, just turn off the ignition, and the locks should cycle, meaning that you’ve now completed the programming.
