Can't program Second remote to my Ford Explorer 99

I have a keyless remote already programmed, but I bought another one and I needed to program it and it does not work. it says to open and close the switch 8 times and doors should lock to let you know that it started the programing but it does not do that. Any suggestions on why?

Programming a key fob is all about timing. You are most likely doing everything correctly, just not in the correct time sequence. Keep at it, it might take you a dozen times, but you can get it. A tip is to do it as quickly as possible.

Here are the programming instructions:

*** THERE ARE 2 POSSIBLE PROGRAMMING PROCEDURES. ***Procedure #1Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
Note: Do not depress the brake pedal during procedure.

  1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  2. Within 20 seconds press any button on the first keyless remote to be programmed. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. If you only have one remote then skip to step 4.
  3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. Repeat step 3. For all other remotes.
  4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

    Procedure #2Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
  5. Fasten seat belts and close all doors.
  6. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 6 seconds, with the 4th time ending in RUN. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  7. Turn ignition to OFF. Acoustic signal will sound and system warning lamp will illuminate to confirm programming mode.
  8. Within 10 seconds, press and hold any button on the first keyless remote. Wait for acoustic sound and warning lamp to flash (confirming programming) then release button on remote. Wait 2 seconds but within 10 seconds repeat step 4. For all other remotes. If you only have one remote then continue to step 5.
  9. Turn ignition to Crank or wait 10 seconds to end programming mode.

Bonus Tip: You can save time and money purchasing a Ford Explorer Key Fob online from Keyless Entry Remote Inc.

Reading your post you mention to "open and close switch"..not sure what refering to...these are the instructions from your vehicles service manual...good luck!

Programming NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) are programmable and must be set at the same time.
NOTE: To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the RAP module, perform the following steps:

  1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered.
  1. Turn the ignition switch (11572) from OFF to RUN eight times within ten seconds, ending in RUN. If the RAP module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
  1. Press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Diagnosis and Testing.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to 20 seconds after step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the RAP module will lock and unlock all doors one last time to confirm.

Contact the dealer for this information. they can help. Contact the person whom you bought the car from they should also be able to help. I can't give this type of information out over the web without knowing any more about your situation.

I don't have a remote central locking key and want one


buy one first and then you have to reprogram them to your vehicle. If you already have one and just getting a second the first will have to be reprogrammed too. google keyless entry programming for instructions.
