How to Program a Ford Key Fob

Here at Matt Ford we know that losing your keys can be quite a hassle, and while we are able to cut new keys and program a new key fob for you, we know that doing so can be a bit time consuming—especially for those who live well outside of the Kansas City area. For that reason, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with step-by-step instructions of how to program a Ford key fob so you can do it on your own.

One of the greatest parts about programming a replacement Ford key fob is that you don’t need to have any automotive knowledge at all. You also don’t need a ridiculous amount of tools or anything like that. All you have to have is access to the inside of your vehicle and your new key fob. So, if your only set of keys is locked inside the vehicle, you cannot just purchase and program a new key fob to open the doors and get them out. If that were the case, anyone could access your vehicle. You must be able to get inside.

Once you are inside the vehicle, make sure that all of the doors are close and slide the key into the ignition. From there, turn the key on and off eight times, but do not start the car. Just turn it all the way to the right and then all the way to the left, leaving it in the “on” position after the eight turn. You will know that the car has entered the programming mode as soon as all of the doors of the vehicle lock and then unlock.

When programming mode is activated, all you have to do is press any one of the key fob buttons within 20 seconds. Once you hit one of the buttons, the doors of the vehicle will lock once again. When they finish locking, all that you have to do is hit the unlock button to verify that the key fob is in fact programmed. If it is, simply remove the key from the ignition and be on your merry way. However, if you have a few key fobs that you need to program, start back at step one and go through the same exact procedure.

As we said, programming a new key fob in your Ford is easy enough for just about anyone to do. If you do have some issues, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have, and we are even willing to walk you through the steps or program your new key fob for you. All you have to do is bring in your vehicle and your new key fob. Don’t have a key fob yet? Don’t worry. We have plenty in stock here at the dealership.

    Is it possible to program my own key fobs for a 2014 Ford C-Max? And if so how do I do it? I have tried the 8 key turn trick and the 4. I’ve also done the ford one of the pressing the unlock button 4 times and nothing works

    How does one program a third remote for the 2015 Mustang?
    Thank you,

      I just programmed an intelligent access key (five button with mustang logo on the back) for my 2016 GT with sync3. I got the instructions from the dealer as the instructions on the ford website were incorrect.

      With the vehicle not running and with the doors closed. Windows can be down for this procedure if you like.

      1. Remove the rubber piece at the bottom of the cup holders in the center console. The rear cup holder has the slot for programming the key less fob

      2. Placed the first programmed intelligent access key in the slot located below the cup holders in the center console with the key ring up and the buttons forward. Hit the Start / Stop Button WITHOUT pressing the brake pedal, putting the car in accessory mode. Hit the Start / Stop button again. Remove the programmed intelligent access key from the slot.

      3. Repeat procedure 2 with the second programmed intelligent access key.

      4. Place the unprogrammed remote in the slot. Hit the Start / Stop Button WITHOUT pressing the brake pedal, putting the car in accessory mode. Wait for the message in the message center in the dash to tell you the key has been programmed, also both turn signal indicator lights in the dash flashed on an off. Hit the Start / Stop Button again. Remove your newly programmed fob and verify the new key fob works.

      It worked for me, with a 69.95 key from keyfobbob.com. Good luck

    The thing that sucks is how much it costs for these Basturds at to give you a copy of a key. Total F’n rip off! I found ways around almost every part of this crap, I thought…
    You can buy an uncut fob on amazon for $15.00.I found a locksmith to lazer cut the key for $35.00 You can program the locks on your car yourself for FREE. I thought cool $50.00 seems fair. The shitty part is that you could also program the ignition yourself for FREE too, but only if you already have 2 previously programmed Ford keys! Why the hell would you have to program a new key if you already had a spare?!!! So it looks like I still have to go back to the locksmith and pay near $100.00 more have them program my Ignition (which takes them like 30 seconds!) or else the new key won’t start my car. I liked it better when I had a 1978 Trans-Am. The new key was like $3.00
    I realize that the way I’m doing it , I’m only paying about half of what Ford or some of the other greedy assholes are charging, but It’s still ridiculous…
    I’m 47 and this is the first set of keys that I have lost in my entire life. I never thought it could be this much of a nightmare! Damn crooks!

    From driver’s seat:
    Fasten front seat belts, place shifter in PARK and arrange to operate the all integrated key transmitters (IKT) that for the vehicle and the ***Remote Keypad to be programmed.
    Unlock doors with one of the key transmitters
    Insert a transmitter key in ignition and quickly (within 6 seconds) cycle ignition switch from OFF to RUN 8 times ending in OFF position.
    The car will make a chime noise
    Press door lock button on all of the key transmitters in succession.
    ***Then, press the 7/8 and 9/0 buttons on the Remote Keypad simultaneously for 2 seconds.

    ***Remote Keypad:

    Button lights will go out on remote keypad 10 seconds after the last operation.
    Test remote unlocking operation of IKTs by pushing the unlock button and the remote keypad using the 5-digit factory code.
    Test locking operation by pressing 7/8 + 9/0 keys on keypad simultaneously.

  23. What i do not realize is actually how you are not actually
    a lot more smartly-favored than you might be right now. You
    are so intelligent. You know thus significantly with regards to this subject, made me in my view imagine it from numerous varied angles.
    Its like men and women are not interested unless it is one thing to accomplish
    with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always care for it up!
