Hi all, I would like some help on how to program a used key fob I have just received via Ebay. I have put my original flip key into the ignition gone to II and back to 0 4 times within 6 seconds (as stated in the handbook) but no tone is heard. I have tried this several times, even cutting the time down to less than 3 seconds, but still no tone, so the system has not entered the 'programming mode'. Any ideas on what to try next would be greatly appreciated. The car is a 08 C-max Titanium. Thanks.

Perhaps the speed of key turning isa issue.
Please remember that what you are doing will only "programme" the remote door locking features and not the use of the ignition key. That part needs to be done at a Ford dealer :(

Hi Iawe,
Thanks for your reply. I have now managed to reprogram the key, but strangely the tone did not sound after the fourth return to 0. But it did sound when the remote buttons were pressed ! I do realise that now I have to go to a ford dealer to get the immobiliser sorted, at what I have read is, vast expense - £80 plus.

Many thanks.

Peter
