Hi
I need some help regarding the key fob on my 57 plate titanium.
Went to open the car with the remote after opening it about 30 mins previously with no problems and now nothing..dead!
Wont open anything and have to open it and drive it with the manual key.
Does it need reprogramming or new battery?
Thanks.

Same has happened to me. Changed battery tried to reprogram with no luck. Called ford over 100 for a new fob, so I hit eBay 35 later new on on the way.

Found the detail below on a post from millsy so credit goes to him

"As for they key fob, if the key fob batteries ok but the key fob has lost it's programming then put your key in the ignition and turn it from 0 to position 2, you need to do this 4 times in 6 seconds, once you've done this you can remove the key and you'll hear a beep, you now need to press each of the buttons on your keyfob once, when you've done this your key fob should work again once the programming mode has timed out, about 10 seconds I think. *Certainly worked for me."

Thankyou for the Post.. It worked a treat! So easy.
Saved me going to the ford dealer to be ripped off.

Many thanks again
