Question about 2007 Ford Focus (3 Door) Hatchback

I need to change my battery on a Ford Galaxy 2007 2L TDCI, I know my radio code. I've been told it may affect the alarm/immobiliser system and I may need my keys recoding by the dealer, is this true? Any help would be appreciated.

IT is possible that the battery removal will affect the CPU program which controls the immobiliser as some times the power surge on reconnection causes this. Useing a scanner to reset the CPU program should fix the problems

SOURCE: ford focus rs alarm trouble

if its a factory alarm you put the key in and quickly turn the key on and of i cant remember if its 8 or 9 times but the horn will chirp then you push the lock and unlock on the fob the locks should respond then turn key off and your done. note that if you have more than one fob you have to press lock and unlock on all of them before you turn the key off and i believe you only have about fifteen seconds to do so if not let me know i will look it up at work

SOURCE: disarming the alarm

Try this,I think this will work.Unplug the Remote anti-theft module in the right hand kick panel.It will have 2 connectors,one is 22 cavity connector and the other is 26 cavity connector.
Now best I can tell by looking at the Schematics you will have you take the wires from pin 11 PK/LG and pin 22 PK/YE in the 22 pin connector and pin 1 LG in the 26 pin connector and run these to a ground.Then leave the RAP module disconnected. This should keep your electric door locks working and disable the alarm.

SOURCE: Lost Key Code to re-set radio in 2001 Ford Expedition.

hi, yeah this is a common problem. And the dealership will charge you about £40 just to reset the radio so they can get the code (thats what they tell you anyway)

if you can take the radio out and post the serial number that is on the side, should start with the letter M****** i should be able to post you the radio code using your serial number.

SOURCE: Changing a Battery on a 2007 Ford Galaxy 1.8 TDCi

I have just changed my battery on a 56 plate. You need to remove the air box in front of the battery compartment as the battery has to slide forward to come out. Firstly look down at the box and at the front is black rectangular pipe going to the air grill at the front of the car. At the top of the pipe is a plastic clip, unhook this and slide the pipe down away from the box. It takes a bit of force but it will clip out. Then at the back of the air box there is a large pipe with a circlip on it. Undo the circlip and remove the pipe from the box, You can leave the sensor in the air box and then just pull the air box free. It is only held in with rubber gromits. Once free move it to one side and you can remove the casing and then remove the retaining bolt holding the battery in.

Hi all,I have a Ford focus 2004 tdci 1.8 and the immobiliser intermittently won't turn off,I've tried both keys and its still won't start.kind regards Dean


Ford products are sensitive to changes in Battery voltage. The system views low Voltage as an attempted theft and makes the Alarm go off.

Remove the Battery, return it with a full charge or new Battery. Some other symptoms would be slow cranking or clicking like a dead battery. The Antitheft reduces starter Voltage to around 7 Volts making starting nearly impossible.

Please rate my info. If all else fails, the Identity in the car memory may no longer match the identity on the car keys. You would need to have a Dealer rematch the keys to the car.

I have a 05 plate coupe 2ltr se, can't turn immobiliser/alarm off with fobs, both fobs have new batteries and have ben sync'ed with car as per handbook, could it be a fault with body unit


This is a long shot but worth trying as it is free:

Disconnect both leads from the battery, contact the two removed leads together (this will diffuse the ECU memory and re-boot the system)
leave for a few minutes then reconnect.
(The above can lose a radio code if applicable)

This can reconfiger the systems and sort out a multitude of issues.

Hope it sorts it out for you.

We change out battery in 2005 Xtype jag after we install battery and car was running as we was program the radio all the light on dash starting blinking and the car died


Sounds like an issue with the car's immobiliser. In order to prevent theft by disconnecting the alarm system when the power is cut the immobiliser is programmed to interrupt the car restart when power resumed. You will need to reset the alarm code.

MY FORD ESCORT 1.6 FINESSE 1997 IMOBILISER FAULT


disconnect the battery for 1 minute and try again - ---quick fix possible with that---
if that makes no difference then I would like to know exactly what model of alarm and immobiliser the car has - what is the maker + model no/serialno of the keyfob for the alarm, I can get the info I need off that.
also you can check the fuse in the alarm if you know where the alarm is situated, it will have a fuse either on an inline fulseholder on as a spade fuse stuck into its casing somewhere - replace the fuse if blown and try again to start the car ------------ tell me the model no of your alarm and immobiliser if no joy after battery/fuses and I can read up on them and see if I can fix your problem...
