we get lots of calls asking us how to program BA & BF keys & remotes. It is in your owners manaul but we decided to make up some instructions for those that dont have a manual.

These instructions will allow you to program a new remote and/or key to your BA or BF Falcon or SX / SY Territory

To program the remotes you will need to have all the remotes available for the car as you need to relearn them all.

To program the key you will need to have 2 keys available for the car.

we will start with remotes.
Sit in the car with the doors closed
Turn the ignition to the ACC postition and press the rear demist button 3 times, within 5 seconds.
You then press a button on the first remote to be trained , the door locks will cycle.
Then press a button on the 2nd to be trained and the door locks will cycle again.
Repeat this step for the the rest of the remotes to be trained to the car.
The first keypad trained will result in one door lock cycle, the second will result in 2 door lock cycles, and so on.
There is a limit of 8 remotes per car.
Turn the ignition to the OFF position to exit the learning mode.
Your remotes are now programmed to your car.

Now for the keys
You will need to have 2 coded keys available if you wish to train a new key.
ensure you have all keys present during recoding as any key not present will be removed from the memory.

Sit is the drivers seat with doors closed
Put the first coded key into the ignition & turn to the ACC position.
Turn this key to the OFF postition & remove the key.
Within 5 seconds put the 2nd coded key into the ignition & turn this key to the ON postition.
Turn this key back to the OFF postition and remove the key.
The door locks will then cylcle to indicate that the learning mode is active.
Within 5 seconds put the new 3rd or new key into the ignition & turn to the ON postition.
The door locks will cycle 3 times to indicate the 3rd key has been trained , ensure you wait for the locks to finish cycling before turning the key to the OFF position.
Repeat this step for any following keys , The 4th key trained will cycle the locks 4 times, and so on. you can train up to a maximum of 8 keys.

your new key should now be coded to your car.

Depending on model? assuming BA or BF?

Dad is a ford mechanic... have talked about this with him before...

With the later models and only having one key the only way to train new keys is with the PDS ford laptop... it cannot be done any other and requires ford network...

as you plug this laptop into the car and it gives an out code... run to the net and upload out code and ford then give an in code... run back to the car and enter the in code and then the car enters a learning mode allowing for new keys to be programmed...

this is the only way of doing this... hence the ability to charge this amount... if you bought it second hand... really suggest chasing old owner to find the second key... otherwise make good mates with someone at ford...

This works with AU2/3 remotes as well. I haven't tried it with keys.

One little addition however, the car (at least my AU3) only goes into learning mode if all doors are unlocked. It doesn't do learning mode if only the driver's door is unlocked. So make sure all the doors are unlocked first.

To be updated... soon!

ahhh f**k this s**t, I have two later model ford both have only one key each. I cannot believe I will be forced to pay $$$$ for key codes..... Can someone do this in Melbourne for a reasonable (slab of beer, bottle of bourbon) price? I bought two new flip keys on ebay for a great price now to get them cut for one. Programmed to the cars is a major headache...
