Keyfob Battery


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Quick question....my brother has a mk2 '55 reg and has a non flip keyfob and needs his battery changing.

Timpsons have advised him that if he does change the battery Ford need to reprogramme the keyfob back to the car at £££££

I'm sure this is not the case....can anyone confirm this?

Timpsons talk total tosh.

The only bit that may need recoding is the central locking settings but only if the battery has been dead for a while.

It's an easy routine to do yourself-

From Mirez

Radio Frequency Programming Instructions:

  • Insert the ignition key and turn from position II (Ignition) to position 0 (All off) and back four times within three seconds.
  • Remove the ignition key. The locking control system is now in "learn mode" for the next 20 seconds and the red warning system LED stays on continuously to indicate this.
  • During the 20 seconds press one of the transmitter buttons. The remotes signal and code number is learned by the locking module and is indicated by flashing the warning system LED.
  • Wait until learn mode times out (20 seconds) or switch the ignition back to ON.

Thanks all this has been really helpful.

The key fob is still working to a degree so it should be a simple battery change in that case.
