Keyless Entry Remote Programming

not sure how to program it. picked one up brand new from the Mercury/Lincoln dealer by my job. the parts manager said i have to turn the key 5-8 times, then doors will lock and then push lock on one remote then the other.

i did that process and did not work.

any advice?

Turn the key to on. Open the trunk, pull the carpet out on the left side slightly and look for a small two pin connector on the side of a box. Short out the two pins on the connector and listen for the locks to cycle. Press a button on the remote and it should cycle the locks again to indicate successful association of the fob. Repeat for all fobs being programmed. Turn key off and the locks will cycle once more to indicate completion of the programming cycle.

The programming info the parts guy gave you would be correct for the NEW (as of 98+ or so/PATS) keyless system

Connector

Assuming you have the car in your signature, the connector is located behind the trim in the trunk on the drivers side. It is near the fuel pump shut-off (inertia) switch. As stated it is a two wire connector. The wires should be Gray with yellow stripe and White with yellow stripe. The connector looks like it may be below the bracket that holds the Anti-theft and or Keyless entry module(s). It may have fallen off of the bracket and is laying low in the well area.

It's attached to the left side of the black holder that holds the theft and door modules.

Programming Key FOBs 1995 Thunderbird

Programming - Transmitter

Before any of the RKE features will operate, the RKE module must be programmed to accept signals from the transmitters. The RKE module may be programmed to accept signals from up to four transmitters. The following steps must be performed in order to program or reprogram the RKE module to respond to the selected transmitters:

Put the ignition switch in "RUN" or "ACC" and momentarily jumper the two terminals of the programmer connector (located in the LH side of the trunk, next to the remote/keyless entry module). The system will respond by locking and then unlocking all doors.
Press any button on the transmitter. All doors will lock and then unlock to verify transmitter signal acceptance.
Repeat step 2 to program the RKE module to accept up to four transmitter signals.
Turn the ignition switch to "OFF". All doors will then lock and unlock.
Operate a button on each transmitter to verify that the system has been programmed successfully.

Jumpering terminals

There should be just two terminals/wires in the connector. Just touch them together. If there are more than two terminals, you have the wrong connector.

Once this is done, NetKeym 's procedure should work except that the 95 workshop manual I have says this;

Turn ignition switch to RUN or ACC position and momentarily short the two terminals of the Program Connector (C4) (a two-pin connector is taped to the wire assembly and can be reached by removing the LH luggage compartment trim panel). The connector is attached to the relay mounting panel (14B144) . All front doors should lock then unlock. Remove shorting pin.


Hope this helps.

I took my procedure straight from Alldata which gets it's info from Ford. If it doesn't work, I don't know why because we pay thousands of dollars a month for Alldata and it hasn't been wrong yet.

I doubt it'll get stickied... there are at least a dozen more threads with this information already in them that can be found by searching for "keyless remote programming".

Something that MIGHT get stickied is a thread that holds links to threads with all the common procedures and whatnot in it. It's hard to judge what the mods deem to be sticky-worthy. There is a sticky similar to that in the newbie forum though.

But like I mentioned, most here say "search" when it comes to common information. Most people look right over the stickies that are there and start new threads anyway....

No disrespect meant! I've seen errors in both Ford shop manuals and Alldata. Just wanted to add additional info if the first try didn't work.
