Key fob for my 2003 Ford Taurus will not unlock the door anymore. I replaced the batteries in fob & It is working, but still won't unlock the car. Could it be a fuse blown in the car, & where is it?

Key fob is working, but door locks are not responding to it. Could it be a blown
fuse in the car? If so, where do I find it ... I don't have a car manual. Any info
appreciated. Thanks.

Do you have another fob?


No, unfortunately the other one was lost by a relative of mine.

You say it is working but how do you know? Does it unlock any doors? Does the one you have lock the doors? I bought two fobs on eBay for $11.00 about 3 months ago. Instructions in owners manual made it very easy. You can have a maximum of three fobs programed. My passenger door does not unlock but will lock and to me that is ok.
