now, follow reprogramming guide for fiesta and use a different remote for it. Problem should be fixed now.

the programming is not in the remote, it is in the controller in the car. The remote is only designed to give off one signal while the car will accept up to four.
Im confused by that - the original focus remote opens the focus. The original fiesta remote was broken that opens the fiesta. The spare remote from e**y I tested by programming into the focus, then when we got the fiesta programmed it into that. So the spare remote that is really the fiesta's remote is opening both the focus and fiesta. There must be a way for security to get the focus to forget any learned remotes but the ones in sequence. ie. think about if someone stole the keys, the sequence in the manual didnt work. I think its something todo with the control lights as I dont know what is the control lights (unless they mean the dashboard lights), as it doesnt go off after 5 seconds.

Thanks,
Chris
