I tried to program a FOB to my 2005 Ford Taurus but everytime I turn 8 times the locks dont respond. Is the program broken on the car?

On my 1999 F350 it only took 5 turns. So who knows what the correct number is. However, the correct way to do it on my F350 was to turn the key from OFF to the accessory position an have the door locks in the up position than listen for them to lock. I hope this helps.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. 2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. 3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. 4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.
