04 CVPI Key FOB Problem

I've tried the 2 known (to me) methods of getting to the programming mode. 4 cycles of off/on, or 8 cycles of off/on.

NEITHER will activate the programming mode. I have a key fob that I just bought at the dealer today and can't get it to program. Its a former police unit, and I have 2 keys for the car, but I don't think either are chipped. Being that is has had mods done for the law......will these normal functions not work ?????

Vehicle is a 2004 Crown Vic, former police car. Nothing fancy, all bare bones really. I do have power locks/windows.

ANYONE KNOW SOMETHING??????

All the police units we've had didn't have the security system. Just get a regular key, have it cut and no programing was needed.

Re: 04 CVPI Key FOB Problem

Right.....the problem is the FOB keyless entry pad though. I have 2 keys.....just normal cut, not chipped. Keys work great. I bought the FOB keypad to try and make use of the keyless entry and trunk access.

Any links or ideas for programming the keyless entry fob w/o giving the dealer another $90?????

My first post says what I've tried......maybe its me? .......I'm hoping!

To have the remote locks, you'd have to have it installed. There's no module in them to use a remote for the door locks. I installed one in my car. I bought it from Micro Alarm.

Re: 04 CVPI Key FOB Problem

Micro seems to be aftermarket. Is there anything OEM that I can install to make this Ford FOB work correctly?

Also, are the key fobs the only thing that would require the "programming mode" to be accessed?? Just wondering since I couldn't even seem to get into the mode.

Re: 04 CVPI Key FOB Problem

It would take quite a bit of wiring and parts to make the OEM FOB work. I wouldn't attempt it.

Re: 04 CVPI Key FOB Problem

Thats what I needed to know. Thanks. Looks like I'll just go for an aftermarket alarm system for $100-$200. That should take care of my needs.

Thanks for the info.

OH....I saw you posted on a thread about engine cleaning. I had the same thoughts in mind. Keep it running, soak it, rinse it and drive it a bit to dry it.
What is a good auto parts store cleaner that will actually get old crap off? The under hood isn't bad, but more built up dust/pollen then grease.........

And is there a simple way of brightening it up after it drys? Like just spraying some tire wet or armor all over the entire thing, instead of having to hand wipe everything down?

Thanks again,

John

Re: 04 CVPI Key FOB Problem

I bought a gallon of this from Napa for the instrument panel, door panels, door jams, tires and engine, to make it look slightly glossy. It makes the surface look like armorall does. As for cleaning the engine, I have some Castrol purple power. If it's not real dirty, most any cleaner will work. Just make sure not to run too much water on the top area where the spark plugs are. If you get water doen the holes, you'll have to pull the coil packs and blow the water out with air.
