So I picked up a few key fobs for my wife's 1998 Expedition and following the website on how to code them, I came across directions to sync up a key fob to a 1995 Bronco, which I have. I've owned the truck since '05 and never had a keyless entry remote, nor alarm system on it. The prev. owner never mentioned it either. So I said WTH, I'll try it out:

1. Turn key to "On" position
2. Jump the two pin connectors just below the center dash, above the accelerator pedal, in the gray harness not connected to anything
3. The doors will lock and unlock activating key fob sequence
4. Press the lock button on new key fob (doors "should" lock)
5. Turn key back to off position.

Well, I went through the sequence to step 4 (hearing step 3 actually work made me excited) and the new fob I have did nothing when I pressed the lock button. So I think I've come to the conclusion that my Bronco really doesn't have keyless entry/factory alarm....

Or do I???:whiteflag

I don't think the Expedition remotes don't work for it. Physically they are a little smaller I believe, that is how you can tell the difference.

You probably just have the wrong remote.Check for the keyless entry module. If you pull the cover that's under the dash bezel you can see it right behind where the cubby goes.

Programming Procedure & Connector Location Diagram, Bronco, 92-96; "From the Ford service CD: Programming, Electronic Door Lock Control Processor Note: The remote entry features will not function when the key is in the RUN or ACCESSORY position. To unlock the driver's door, press the UNLOCK button on the transmitter (which is programmed into the remote entry receiver module) once. This will also disarm the anti-theft system, if equipped. To unlock all doors, press the UNLOCK button on the transmitter twice. The second depression must be within five seconds of the first UNLOCK depression. If more than five seconds have elapsed since the first depression of the UNLOCK button, pressing the UNLOCK button again will only unlock the driver's door. To turn on interior lamps (13776), press either UNLOCK or PANIC. To lock all doors, press the LOCK button on the transmitter once. To confirm that doors have locked, press LOCK button again, within five seconds of the first depression. This will beep the horn (13832), flash the parking lamps and lock all doors again. To activate the personal security alarm, press the red PANIC button. The horn will beep and parking lamps (13201) will flash for a maximum of two minutes, forty-five seconds. To deactivate the personal security alarm, press the red PANIC button again or turn the ignition switch (11572) ON. Note: The remote entry receiver module erases all previous transmitters from memory when the transmitters are programmed or reprogrammed. The remote entry receiver module can store up to four transmitters in memory. To program (or reprogram) transmitter(s) into the remote entry receiver module, perform the following steps: 1. Turn key to the ON or ON/ACCESSORY position and momentarily short the two terminals of the program connector (C4) (a two-pin connector taped to the wire assembly connected to the remote entry receiver module, approximately 6 inches from the remote entry receiver module). All doors should lock then unlock. Remove shorting pin. 2. Press any button on transmitter. All doors should lock then unlock to verify that the transmitter has been programmed. If door locks do not respond, press button again (up to three times maximum with the same transmitter). 3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional transmitters into the remote entry receiver module (up to four transmitters maximum). 4. Key off. All doors should lock then unlock. 5. Check operation..."

miesk5 thanks so much brother! First thing - I need to see if I even HAVE that module installed. Is it a factory standard item for a 1995?? At some point today, I'll shove my head up under the dash and take a look. The weird thing is, I got the fobs off Amazon and they advertised to work with my Bronco too (after some research).

Thanks a ton! I'll report back ASAP.

I bet you have the module. I dont think it would have the programming connector if it didn't.

Just to add to this thread, I picked up 3 more free type "3" remotes from the scrap yard today. They had no type 2's.

Key on, jumped the pins as described, and hit the lock button on all 4 remotes I had lined up on the tunnel within 5 seconds. All 4 activated immediately and I now have 4 fully functional remotes instead of one.
No more getting locked out by the dog. :thumbup

Type 3 are shown in the pics above.

FYI, the keyfob usually wont work if the truck is running. Theres a wire at the module you have to cut I believe to be able to unlock when running

I just used this! My remotes haven't worked I several months. I was going to replace the module but thanks to this feed I've fixed it in about 5 mins and saved $50. Thx.

yo a1965gt & RngTrl,

FYI, 94 Bronco-Econoline-F-Series Workshop Manual by Ford
https://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WSRM/~MUS~LEN/21/SRMLEFT.HTM

See Section 01-14B:
Door Lock Control System, Electronic
https://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WSRM/~MUS~LEN/25/SRMS1EBL.HTM
I read section 01-14B and it is not perfectly clear whether or one is to leave to jumper between programming pins on the wiring harness until the programming of the remote is finished, or if you just needed to momentarily short the pins out. Anyone know for sure? thanks for all the info Miesk5!
