Step-by-Step Ford Key Fob Programming Instructions

Key fob programming doesn’t need to be a source of frustration. With our easy-to-follow guide and our service center a call away, you can stop asking yourself how to program Ford key fobs, and start enjoying your new Ford car! Whether you need one key fob programmed or multiple, our guide will help Maple Grove drivers get on the road in no time. See below for our five-step Ford key fob programming guide:

  1. With all your car doors closed, hit the Unlock button on the driver’s side door.
  2. Turn the ignition from Off to On eight times, at ten-second intervals. On the eighth time, make sure it ends on RUN. When you’ve entered programming mode, the doors 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 your Ford key fob and hold it for eight seconds. The car locks will cycle again.
  4. If you have multiple key fobs, repeat step three for each one.
  5.  Finally, turn the ignition to OFF. The locks will again cycle to confirm programming is complete.
