Does a replacement Keyless entry remote have to match any numbers on my 2001 ford escape.
My remote keyless entry was clipped
on my purse strap for EZ access
instead of digging thru messy purse &
it came off w/o me knowing.I've seen
quite a few on Ebay/amazon for a ford
escape but am wondering if I can buy
any old one & have it work or do some
kinda numbers have to match(&
where would I find numbers
location)...or does it have to be
programmed @ ford dealership.
The key fobs on EBay have to be programmed, they usually send the info on how to do this, some locksmiths also have this ability and they can be cheaper than the dealership. But if all else fails then dealer is the place you will have to go.
