Can anyone help.

This keyless system is a ford aftermarket system. It was installed by a ford dealership as i was told. Someone told me it was a code alarm system or something like that. Can anyone help me figure out how to program my remote with this system?

thanks

The following is the procedure for programming a keyless remote on a 1997 Econoline. Ford changed very little during these model years so it may be of some help.
Turn the ignition key to run or accessory position. Short the two terminals on the program connector ( a two pin connector below the drivers side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column).
All the doors should lock and then unlock.
Press any button on the keyless remote in turn All the doors should again lock then unlock. If locks do not respond press the button again up to three times max with the same door opener. If hte locks fail to respond, change the batteries in the remote and try again. Repeat to program additional controllers. up to four controllers max.
Turn the ignition key to the off position. Remove short from program connector. Test remote for proper operation.
Hope this helps.

Since this came up in a google search, I'd like to post what worked for my 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, so no one has to pay the lame $7 following the link posted above.

I found this on a Google Forum:

For the '99's, the Owner's manual says -
1) Turn key from OFF to ON eight times within 10 seconds ending
in the ON position.
2) After doors lock then unlock, press any button on the
remote being programmed.
3) The doors should lock/unlock to confirm programming.
4) Turn key to OFF and door locks should cycle one last time.

You can program up to four remotes this way, but they must
all be done at the same time (repeat step 2 for each).

Thanks! I used this to reprogram the keyless remote for my 2003 Ford Mustang. It worked like a charm!

I have a 2002 mustang and we have tried all the methods listed above to program remotes but the program will not accept. We turn the key 8 times, the locks lock and unlock, hold the remote button but nothing happens. We have tried several different remotes and new batteries. Any ideas? Thanks

I'm sure you tried this but rather than 'hold' the remote button try just pushing the button and releasing it immediately and see if the locks cycle.

Yes we did that too. We tried all different ways and nothing seems to work. Is there another way to program them? I just don't get why it wont work.

I turned the key 8 times and programmed two remotes. Worked great!

Just for clarification on this old thread...

The GOH-M24 or GOH-3BFM2497 remotes with the Ford logo are technically aftermarket - made by Code Alarm for Ford.

Direct Link - http://originalkeyless.com/Ford-Keyless-Entry-Remote-Various-GOH-M24-Code-Alarm-Ford-Keyless-Remote-GOH-M24.htm

http://originalkeyless.com/images/12519935886841708646726.jpeg

These are the correct programming instructions for THOSE remotes:

1. Open driver's door and turn ignition to "ON" position

2. Locate the programming button on wiring harness pigtail, behind the left side of the center console (to the right of the gas pedal), next to the RKE module. (feel around under the plastic wall)

3. Press & Hold the button for 15 seconds. The horn will sound 3 times when it enters programming mode.

4. Press the lock button on the transmitter. The horn should sound once to confirm the transmitter. Repeat for any additional transmitters up to 4 max

5. Turn ignition to "OFF" and test transmitters.

HELP!

I have a 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7 4.6L

Recently my remote (FCC ID: GOH-M24) hasn't been working so I ordered another one. I dont know how to program my remote, I followed the instructions that you guys have placed but nothing seems to work. I located the button under my dash, i held it down for 15 seconds and the car doesnt go into programing mode. The switch i have located is connected to two brown wires. In order for me to start my car i have to have this button pressed down while i turn the ignition on, then the engine will turn over. I need to use the remote to unlock the car so it disables the starter lockout, Without my remote i always have to press this switch in while i start it (sort of annoying) Is this the right switch i have here or is there another one? I saw another person say that there's a harness i have to jump but i thought those were only for factory installed alarms... I have an alarm system that has been installed by ford AFTER the car was purchased. I'm not the first owner of the car so im not sure how it was hooked up or anything like that.

If you guys know something i don't know, please share your information

Thanks
Kyle

Try again, but make sure you are not pressing the brake at all during programming.

Also, are you sure the remote you have is functional and has a good battery?

Most Auto Parts stores have an RF tester that can tell you if the remote is responding.

Alright, I just went out and ensured that i wasn't hitting the brake pedal and I still got nothing. The car wont go into programming mode.

I checked the inline 20Amp fuse on the code alarm wiring harness with a fuse tester and it was fine.

I held the button down for 15 seconds and i got nothing either.
I turned the ignition to the on position and tried it, got nothing, Is there maybe another switch im supposed to be pressing down?

Thanks
Kyle
