My 2013 Ford Fusion (suddenly) won't recognized the fob to unlock doors
My 2013 Ford Fusion (suddenly) won't recognized the RF signal from either of my fobs and won't unlock the doors. Fobs do work; I checked that they are sending a RF signal. I can use the key pad on the driver's door to open the car. The metal key does start the car. Will this clear if I disconnect the battery and attempted to reset the computer or is there a bad receiving module that needs replaced?
Replace the battery, it will reset your transponder.
Do you mean the 12-volt car battery? It is only 25 months old. The batteries in the fobs are fine.
Last night I disconnected the lead from the (car) battery for ~ 1 minute before reconnecting. Afterwards, the fobs were able to unlock the car doors. Hence, no battery replacement. Also, the tire pressure indicator (finally) reset as well. All tires had been at normal recommended pressure, but the tire pressure indicator system would never reset as it has done in the past. By the way, some auto parts stores like Auto Zone have fob testers at their counters. Just turn the tester on. Point your fob at the tester receiver. Press a button on the fob and the tester will indicate if it has received a signal from the fob. Nice to know before going to the trouble of "trying" to open the fob to replace a battery.
