Keyless entry

Post by Peckre » August 7th, 2019, 1:58 am

:canmouth:

So I have an 08 Cvpi, former public works. I have old 90s taurus fobs (I bought a few as well) that I tried syncing up with the car. Those attempts didnt work. So I am lead to believe if I bought that little Blu-tooth node that sticks on the outside, it won't work? What if I took a door off an old marquis? Are the built in ones only for one car?

Are fobs even possible?

I don't believe the older keyfobs will work on the newer systems...

I have a Ford Accessory external door key-pad that I mounted on my 2004 Ranger... the Ranger had OEM remote power door locks, but no driver-door keypad. (I think that's the gadget you're describing, anyway.) But I think there was a major change in about 2005 or 06 in the Ford electronics.

Yes, RKE is possible on 2008 to 2011 cars. you use FORScan to change the as built data in the DDM to enable RKE, then you should be able to put the DDM in programming mode and program the key fobs to the car. I have done this on my 2011 car, best mode for the money in my opinion.

be aware that the trunk release button on the FOB will not work on your 2008 car unless you add a jumper wire to the DDM in the door.
