2004 Focus Wagon, Zetec DOHC, Auto
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.The procedure is a little different for 2000-2006 vs. 2007-2011.
Sit in car, doors closed:
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 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!
