How to Program Ford Key Fobs

Ford Escape

Unsure how to program your Ford key fob after getting a replacement? You might think your remote key fob automatically provides easy access to your vehicle, but that’s not always the case. Luckily, Mike Murphy Ford walks you through the Ford key fob programming process step-by-step so that you can quickly and easily regain remote control over your car! That way, you won’t have to worry about manually locking and unlocking your doors when you’re in a rush around Peoria.

Ford Key Fob Programming Guide

These Ford key fob programming instructions are all you need to ensure that keyless entry is functioning as it should!

  1. Make sure all car doors are closed. Enter the car via the driver-side door, pressing the UNLOCK button inside the doorframe.
  2. In a 10-second span, turn the key in the ignition from OFF to RUN eight times. The last turn should leave the car on RUN.
  3. At this point, you should have entered programming mode, indicated by the door locks cycling between lock and unlock. If they do not, repeat step 2, turning the key faster.
  4. Once in programming mode, press any button on your Ford remote. This must be completed within eight seconds of the door locks beginning to cycle. They will cycle again to confirm your remote has been programmed and is now ready to use.
  5. Repeat step 4 for additional remote key fobs, as needed.
  6. When finished, turn the ignition to OFF. Your door locks may cycle again as another confirmation of programming completion.
