2000-2006

1. Turn the ignition from "Off" to "Run" four times in six seconds. Key stops in "Run" position on fourth cycle.

2. Turn the ignition to "Off." The car will chime to confirm that you've done everything correctly so far. Key is still in ignition

3. Press any key on the first remote you're programming. Perform this within 20 seconds of Step 2. The car will chime to confirm programming.

4. Repeat Step 3 with each additional remote*, all within the 20 seconds. Remove key from ignition.

*The remotes should be inside the vehicle during the procedure (eg. all on front seat.)
I just successfully programed my 2 new fobs off eBay ($21 for 2 keys & 2 fobs), but the procedure in my owner's manual did NOT work.

I used the procedure above, but I think it would help to clarify it a little if a couple of things were added.

Sit in car with doors closed and seat belt buckled so that the seat belt chimes don't add any confusion to the mix.

Also, at the end of step #1, pause with key in Run for a couple of seconds before proceeding to step #2.

**********************

Now to proceed with getting my keys cut and programmed. Fingers crossed there!

I am having trouble with the programming on my 2002 Focus. I can't get it into programming mode. I will cycle the key 4 times and on the 4th time, I do hear a chime when I switch to off, but the remotes don't program in. I am not sure what I am doing wrong...

If you are hearing the chime, you should be in programming mode. (On my '04 I couldn't get there unless I paused about 2 seconds before the final turn to OFF.)

After you hear the chime, push one button on ALL of your remotes (up to 4) one at a time. It is not necessary to hold the fob button down or pause between each fob, just do each one quick enough so as to not have the system time out on you. You should hear a chirp as each of your fobs is entered.

If the car is not responding with a chirp as each fob is pressed, then I'm not sure what is going on. Are your existing fobs working? Try just programming them in without the new fob(s) and see if you get a chirp.

FYI... Our owner's manuals say to cycle the key between position 2 and 3 to enter programming. Position 2 is ACC. The manual should say cycle between positions 1 (OFF) and 3 (RUN). It appears that you have already figured that out because you are getting the programming chime.

I don't know how I did it, but I got it into programming mode. However I was only able to get one of the remotes programmed before it exited. I do have to hold down the button on the remotes for several second for it to program. Still not sure how I did it. I am cycling from off to on 4 times, stopping for a few seconds just before the last time.

I'm not sure what to say at this point as that did not happen on my car. I did not have to hold the fob button down...I just pressed it and let go...got a chime and moved on to the others. Maybe 1-2 seconds between each of the 4 fobs...just reaching down, picking them up, press button, and move on to next fob.
