For my '98 4.0 SOHC it goes like this:
Switch the ignition on/off/on/off 8 times in 10 secs ending in the on
position (I think). If you do this correctly all the door locks will cycle
on the last turn of the key. When the locks have cycled quickly press any
button on the 'new' key fob to register it with your truck's system. There's
a time limit on this, so do it quickly. The locks should cycle again and
Hope this helps
