Explorer keyless entry
I've got a 1997 UP Limited, the remote for the keyless entry stopped working some time ago, (not battery, I tried that already). So far, I have purchaced 4 diferrent remotes from both US and Austrailian ebay, all claiming to be genuine Ford items for 1997 explorer.
My question is, 'Why don't any of them work?' I know how to program them as it tells you how in the manual. I even took the last two to my local dealership and they can't get them programed either.
I am thinking maybe the Limited model has a different remote to the XLT. Can any one comfirm this?
Any help here would be greatly appreciated as I now have a collection of remotes and still can't get it unlocked without using the key.
