keys stopped working

Key fobs stopped working. All 4 of them. Key fob will not lock/unlock or panic on any of the fobs.

Additionally, electronic door locks will not work(door button) with key out of ignition. With key in ignition, door buttons will work-- key fob still does not.

Apparently, fobs lost their programming and have to be reprogrammed by ford.(dealer says they can do it). As i said, all 4 fobs stopped working but button works under certain conditions--so not a simple fuse or battery issue.

It is a PITA...but not the worst problem to have.

Sounds like the kind of reprogramming you can do yourself -- the same that gets done when one adds keyless entry pads or new fobs. The instructions are on this other thread. Instruction #1 , missing from the image, is simply to gather all fobs, entry pads, remotes.

You guys ROCK!!

I just reprogrammed the keys in the attached thread and it worked!!

And think...the ford service advisor told me it couldn't be done

"Those new ones...you have to bring'em in to be reprogrammed. You can't do it yourself like the old ones"

LOL.
