Common problems of the Ford keyless entry remote control include a dead battery and failure of the key fob buttons. Keyless entry remote controls allow car owners to lock and unlock their cars without actually inserting their keys into the vehicle.
If the car does not respond when the remote button is pressed, the battery may be dead. Replace the dead battery by opening the remote control with a flathead screwdriver, removing the old battery and inserting a new CR 2016 battery.
Due to wear and tear, the fob buttons on the remote control may eventually fail. When this happens, the remote control module needs to be replaced, and the car owner has to program the replacement remote control to the car. Most replacement keyless entry remote controls come with do-it-yourself instructions on programming.
