Programming remote for RKE/Alarm/Remote Start

I bought a replacement remote for my 96 Bronco. This bronco has a factory or dealer installed keyless entry, alarm and remote start.

I found the directions below for programing a keyless entry remote but I don't know if it also applies to the remote for a remote start system. I also don't know which pins I am supposed to jump on the module, there are 4.

Does anyone have any details or have a manual for the Ford alarm systems?

Joe





('94-96 Bronco & F-series) Turn ignition to RUN or ACC. Momentarily jump pins in programming connector located at the base of the steering column. All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode. Press any button on 1st transmitter. The door locks will lock then unlock to confirm programming. Press any button on 2nd transmitter (up to 4 transmitters total possible). Turn ignition to OFF. The door locks will lock then unlock to confirm programming.

Ooooo............. I have a folder of wiring and crap about the ford silver remote start system in my garage when my brother put this in his 98 explorer, I'll see if anything is in it about programming the remote or what not....

That would be great, thanks. I spent hours last night trying to find a PDF of the owners manual online but came up empty.

I'm going to take a picture of the control module. There is also a small switch under the dash, not sure what that does.

I contacted the seller again and received a different set of directions (below). They worked, sort of. I was successful in programming the new remote and reprogramming my old remote. The problem is that now when I press the lock or unlock button on either remote it works but the lock actuator continues to cycle 12 times. It didn't do this before with the old remote.

Instructions for programming your new Code Alarm Remote(s)
1. Open the driver’s door, leave the door open and make sure the dome light

is ON.

2. Turn vehicles ignition on (Ignition ON engine OFF).

3. Press and hold emergency override button (A small black headed push

button commonly found under the driver side dash) After about 10-13

seconds, the siren or horn will sound three (3) times. This indicates that

the unit has entered the transmitter-programming mode.

4. Continue to hold in the programming override button.

5. Press the ARM (or LOCK) button on the remote transmitter to be

programmed. The siren or horn will sound once, indicating that the

system has “learned” that remote transmitters code.

6. Repeat step 5 for any additional transmitters or transmitter codes.

7. Release the programming override button.

8. Turn the ignition off to exit the programming mode. Test remote

transmitters to ensure that they work properly by toggling back & forth

the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Instructions for programming your new Code Alarm Remote(s)

Note: Each System module has four “slots”, or memory locations, to store

transmitter codes, giving it the ability to operate from up to four transmitters.

For proper operation, a transmitter code must be stored into each memory slot.

When using less than four transmitters, follow the suggested programming

parameters:



One Remote Transmitter – Program four (4) times



Two Remote Transmitters – Program each transmitter two (2)

times.



Three Remote Transmitters – Program two transmitters one (1)

time, and the remaining transmitter twice.

1. Open the driver’s door, leave the door open and make sure the dome light

is ON.

2. Turn vehicles ignition on (Ignition ON engine OFF).

3. Press and hold emergency override button (A small black headed push

button commonly found under the driver side dash) After about 10-13

seconds, the siren or horn will sound three (3) times. This indicates that

the unit has entered the transmitter-programming mode.

4. Continue to hold in the programming override button.

5. Press the ARM (or LOCK) button on the remote transmitter to be

programmed. The siren or horn will sound once, indicating that the

system has “learned” that remote transmitters code.

6. Repeat step 5 for any additional transmitters or transmitter codes.

7. Release the programming override button.

8. Turn the ignition off to exit the programming mode. Test remote

transmitters to ensure that they work properly by toggling back & forth

the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons.

Anyone have any information about this? The seller sent me some additional steps in the instructions that are supposed to be used when programming fewer than the max of 4 remotes (2 in my case) but this didn't solve the problem.

Ok mystery solved finally.

Someone contacted me who suggested that there is a programming option for the door lock duration. I must have accidentally changed this when I programmed the remote.

This option changes the lock/unlock output; from either 5 seconds or 0.6 sec. It sounds as if maybe mine is set to the 5 sec option and therefore cycling the lock repeatedly.

They sent me a copy of the full programming directions to change the option and now it works fine.

Ebay. There are different types so search using the FCC ID on the back of your remote to find one that is compatible.

I know this is an old post but I can't start a new one yet. I followed the steps but I can't get the system into program mode. Nothing happens when I jump the two pins in the connector. Could this be a bad module? I know the anti theft works, I found that out the hard way.
