Did you recently get replacement car keys, and now you’re wondering how to program Ford key fobs? Glenwood Springs Ford has you covered! Many new Ford vehicles come with a remote key fob for easier vehicle access. Programming a new key fob/s is simple if your car is equipped with keyless entry and you know the steps. Rifle and Grand Junction Ford owners can follow our quick guide below!

Step-by-Step Programming Instructions

  1. Close the car doors, then open the driver-side door. Press the UNLOCK button on the driver-side door.
  2. Next, turn the ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times. Do this within 10 seconds, making sure the 8th time ends on RUN. When you’ve entered programming mode, the door locks will 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. Press any button on the Ford remote to be programmed. Do this within 8 seconds. The door locks will cycle again to confirm the keyless entry remote is programmed and ready to use.
  4. Have a second remote key fob? Again, press any button on the remote within 8 seconds to cycle the door locks. Repeat this step for any additional key fobs.
  5. Finally, turn the ignition to OFF. The locks will again cycle to confirm programming is complete.
