How to Program Ford Key Fobs

Ford Edge Key Fob

If you recently had to replace your Ford key fob battery or bought a new Ford with key fob compatibility, then you’ll need to know how to program a Ford key fob to your vehicle. Ford key fob programming is a simple process you can complete in minutes. Learn how to reprogram a key fob for your new Conway Ford by following the steps below.

Step-by-Step Programming Instructions

Programming a Ford key fob can be completed in three easy steps. If you’re still unable to program your Ford key fob after following the steps below, contact our service center for help. A service technician will walk you through it or recommend visiting our service center in Myrtle Beach.

  1. Close your Ford car doors. Open the driver’s side door and press the “UNLOCK” button on the driver’s side door.
  2. Turn the ignition from “OFF” to “RUN” eight times. Do it within ten seconds of each turn, and ending on “RUN.” Now you’ve entered programming mode. The doors will cycle, locking, and unlocking, indicating programming mode. (Note: If the doors don’t cycle, turn the key faster. If they don’t cycle after repeated tries, you may not have keyless entry.)
  3. Press any button on your Ford key fob to begin programming within eight seconds of your locks cycling. If the Ford key fob programming is successful, your car locks will cycle again. Programming is now complete.

Ford’s key fob programming is easy, and so is getting in and out of your car once you complete the process. No more digging in your bag for your key or locking it in the car because your key fob will lock and unlock your car doors when in proximity to your Ford.
